OBAMASCARE: Huge premium hikes rock employer-insured workers

Sharon Wilson, an office manager in Iowa, figured she would lock in a good deal on health care coverage for her five-person biofuels company by renewing its policy before Obamacare kicked in for 2014. But she balked when her agent came back with a 81 percent rate hike, anyway.

Her company, Prairie City-based Midwest Renewable Biofuels, had experienced rate hikes during her career, Ms. Wilson said, but not like this. Plus, the previous jumps were accompanied by explanations for why premiums were rising.

This time, she was left guessing about her insurer and the role of President Obama’s signature health care law.

so are these premiums per year or ???   I had GEICO auto insurance for a year and the rate was low for the first year but the second year they quoted 6 month premiums but conveniently neglected to SAY it in clear and plain English terms.     I switched and saved... so are these yearly or 6 months or ???     

Premiums here Rebecca, are per MONTH. Our insurance co (BCBS) sent a notice about termination and then obozo said they HAD to allow people to keep their plans (so I thought GREAT!) Oh yea we can keep it all right......it has almost DOUBLED! From $800 a month to $1400! We CAN NOT afford that. So I'm looking for a new plan......I just applied for a plan that will cost $823 per month and has high copays, plus does not cover ANYTHING until you meet the deductible....which we will never do. It's like dumping money straight down the toilet. Well- checks are covered...you know preventive care. Ha. So remember when they kept crying about "no one will go broke in the event of catastrophic illness or injury?" ANOTHER BIG FAT LIE! We wouldn't have before, but you can certainly bet if that happens now WE WILL BE SCREWED! This has been a NIGHTMARE!

Definetly agree Oren. How can the GOP be so BLIND?!?! They will fight amongst themselves and screw up this golden opportunity to reclaim the Senate and perhaps the WH. I pray NOT. WE DON'T EAT OUR OWN!

 

WE ARE ALL GOING TO END UP ON MEDICAID , IN LONG WAITING LINES AT CLINICS RUN BY GOVT JERKS NOT DOCTORS AND RECEIVING VERY INFERIOR CARE . THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD. IT , WILLGO TO OTHER COUNTRIES FOR THEIR CARE .COMRADE SOETORO WILL HAVE HIS WAY UNLES THE MONSTER IS REPEALED .

FOLKS, you Ain't seen nothing ,yet! There's one big question everyone should be asking their selves, " What over sight would stop Obama from rising premiums any time and for as much as he wants?" Correct answer "NOTHING!"

It is this simple: OBAMACARE IS CONSTRUCTED TO TOTALLY DESTROY AMERICA AND TO TURN AMERICA INTO A ONE PARTY "COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP!"

It's not only the small insure carriers that have had to raise their rates to cover their (ass)ets ALL carriers have INCREASED rates across the nation.

I challenge Obama and the democrats to show me ONE insurance company who has LOWERED their rates since Obamacare was passed . . . . without anybody knowing what was in it. Just ask Nancy Pelosi.

Come the fall of 2014 all private policies will be canceled and everyone will be under the Obama government.  Let's get rid of him before that with impeachment, indictment or whatever!

Welcome to Obama's world!

Socialism is Great until you run out of our wealth. Then the TAKERS have nothing to take. The TAKERS being those they ( THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SOCIALIST DEM. PARTY and their Leader OBAMA )  have told deserve to take your wealth with out having to work for it. 

ANYONE SURPRISED ??????  THIS IS ALL PART OF OBAMA'S "TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA" ( FROM A FORMERLY WEALTHY/HEALTHY COUNTRY INTO A 3RD.WORLD, IMPOVERISHED SEWER !!!!!!!...THIS ALSO REFLECTS OBAMA'S DREAM OF "REDISTRIBUTION OF THE WEALTH" ....FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS AND THE RICH , TO THE POOR !!!!!!...ALL DESIGNED TO EVENTUALLY BANKRUPT THE COUNTRY AND CRASH THE ECONOMY !!!!!!!

More scam and deceptive tricks thanks to Ocare. Big collusion between health insurance companies and  Othugs. The system is in chaos and it's only going to get worse. United HealthCare was taken to  court and found in violation of their physician contracts after they dropped thousands of Medicare doctors from their rosters illegally.  But, hey, what's breaking the law when Criminal-in-Chief is at the top. We must keep exposing the frauds responsible. (Does anyone in the gangsta government take responsibility?) They belong in jail!

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
