Obamacare Co-ops

Posted by madjillmom on March 10, 2016

The brilliant people who wrote the Obamacare law knew better than all the corporate actuaries that have studied the risk numbers in insurance for hundreds of years. They thought the answer to those evil for profit insurance companies that employ those experts to maximize profit were evil and greedy.

So out comes government funded co-ops in the socialist mode. Billions of dollars later, cronies on the take, and more than half of the co-ops are done for. Lots of money is owed to doctors and hospitals. The co-ops are supposed to pay the money back, but that won’t happen. In fact, Obamacare has handed out more money to them even in the face of bad business models that are actively failing. Kinda like Solyndra. Just keep telling us it is working while giving more money to a fail business model. Now most of the remaining co-ops are on life support, transfused with our money to prop up a silly notion of competition and covering the uninsured.

In most cases, the people who ran these things are Dem cronies who have paid themselves generously to run these things into the ground. Don’t just look at their pay, look at their Dem bonafides and their “consulting fees”. That tells the whole story. Obamacare is crashing…

Obama Claims Over 1/2 of Sign-ups are New to Health Insurance

Posted by madjillmom on April 11, 2014

At the pep rally for Kathleen Sebelius’ resignation at the White House today, Pres. Obama made the statement that over half of the 7 million sign-ups are people who have never had health insurance before. Is this true? I don’t believe that the government has this statistic yet. Write it down, over half.

This claim may turn out like the other things Obama has said about Obamacare. You know, $2500 savings per family, you can keep your doctor or your plan, bend the cost curve…

Obamacare Claim – 7 million Sign-ups

Posted by madjillmom on April 1, 2014

In the next few days, Obama will claim that there are 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. OK, let’s pretend that is true. Once again, I ask, now what happens to those who haven’t signed up? There were 40 million uninsured before Obamacare, so now there are 33 million uninsured (if all that signed up were previously uninsured). What happens when they go to the doctor or the emergency room or fall ill of a devastating disease? Someone please tell me what happens. Will they be turned away from the doctor and hospital? Will they pay a small fine and get insurance (not from the exchange)? Please let me know?

Obamacare Claim – 6 in 10 Under $100

Posted by madjillmom on April 1, 2014

Yesterday, in the spin to call Obamacare a big success, Jay Carney told the press that 6 in 10 get it for under $100 a day. He meant to say per month. But honestly, how can we believe this? Where is the statistics that bear this out? I do not believe it for one minute. ¬†They can’t tell us who is signing up, whether they were insured prior to this sign-up, or whether they have paid. How can they tell us that 6 in 100 might or might not pay less than $100 per month. Most of the claims about Obamacare from the administration have been outright lies. Why should we believe this?

ObamaCare Promises: Lies or Ignorance

Posted by madjillmom on November 5, 2013

If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period.

It was a lie. That is the best take on it. They lied to get the bill passed on a party line vote. They lied to the public to win reelection. They lied and counted on a compliant, worshipping press to go along with it.

Otherwise, they are ignorant.

Someone ask Obama how it was going to cost nothing to cover millions more people? Ask why they delayed the employer mandate to cover employees? That was strictly political. They didn’t want higher premiums, massive cancellation, and shorter work weeks to help Republicans in 2014. Obamacare is “pie in the sky liberal make it so policy” that will not lower costs. It will take money from Medicare and spread it to the young poor. It will cover illegal aliens. It will continue to shift costs from the poor to the middle class.

It will not lower our premiums by $1200 just because Obama likes to promise that. Instead of doing healthcare reform in a limited and smart manner, they will create problems for most to cover just a few.

Another Attempt to Log-in to Obamacare – Site is Down – Try Again

Posted by madjillmom on October 8, 2013

It is 8:45 am central time. I just tried for about the 15th time to log into Obamacare website and it is down. I am told to come back later, please. I will be attempting to create an account twice a day until I get in and can see what the prices are for me. I am 56, with no chronic disease. I will have to have maternity coverage, alcohol and drug rehab coverage, lots of mental health coverage (which we may all need in the era of Obamacare) and I will have to pay for it. My current coverage is reasonable affordable and covers everything I want it to. I hope to be able to keep it, but that probably won’t happen. I like my doctors and would like to stay with them. This may not happen either. All those Obamacare promises are pretty much down the drain. But I will keep trying. I will post updates.

Maybe Kathleen Sebelius could change the picture of the beautiful smiling girl to at least a beautiful frowning girl. That would reflect truth in advertising!
