Obamacare in My Email

Posted by madjillmom on March 21, 2014

After the Obamacare website was launched, I spent a good deal of time trying to set up an account. It didn’t go well and wasn’t easy, but I finally got to see what was available. After I was able to set up an account, the website told me that there were 39 plans, and all but one was cheaper than our existing plan. Or course, that really wasn’t the case. There were about 39 plans, but all but one was more expensive than our plan and duplicating our plan was double the cost of our existing plan. So I stayed with our current insurance and didn’t go any further. I wonder how much longer our existing insurance will be available and cost-effective thanks to all the rules and regulations of Obamacare.

Now my email is barraged with reminders from Obamacare to sign up. I get almost as much email from Obamacare as I get from Obama’s ever ongoing campaign to collect money to promote Obama’s agenda. I signed up with Organizing for America to know what they are up to. I get about 3 emails a day asking for money. OFA is the biggest beggar in my email. 

I wonder if I am being counted as one of the touted 5 million customers of the wonderful Obamacare.

    You might be counted as one of the 5 million “users”. The thing that get me is that they now have the website “up and running, programmed by the best and brightest” right? But they still can’t tell us how many people have actually paid for and are getting insurance!?

    I wonder how it would go if Amazon were unable to provide the IRS with numbers on the number of goods sold, or how many of its users purchase Amazon Prime? The government can keep the worst books in the world and has no accountability.

    The entire Obama admin’s argument is that we need this law in place and we have to keep it up and running, while at the same time there is no way to gauge its effectiveness!?

    This country is screwed if we don’t get rid of this thing because they are admitting now that they don’t have the ability to monitor its effectiveness.

    That’s right; the IRS can damn sure tell you how many people haven’t signed up, but the same government has no idea how many people have!? Insanity!!!
