Democrats like Reps. Ted Deutch and Lois Frankel, who all supported the disastrous Obamacare law, are always quick to double-down on the failed measure by telling Americans that the healthcare sky is falling because Republicans want to roll Grandma off the cliff.
What Democrats refuse to tell Americans is how Obamacare really isn’t as affordable as they say it is. Middle Class America is the most effected by the rising costs of Obamacare.
I won’t speak for anyone but myself, so here is what I have endured since being forced into joining the Obamacare system.
Five years ago I had Florida Blue Cross and Blue Shields healthcare plan with a monthly premium of about $150 and a yearly deductible of $2000, not to mention it was a “Cadillac” plan that afforded me the opportunity to go to any doctor I chose to see.
That very same year I received my first notice from Blue Cross that “because of the Obamacare law” my plan would be terminated and that I would have to find other coverage through the government.
Now let’s fast forward five years and five insurance plans later.
Yep. Just the other day I had to sign up for my fifth health insurance plan after receiving another termination notice from AvMed.
Now I am back to Florida Blue, and my options to see certain doctors are limited.
My new monthly premium starting in January 2018 is $555 with an annual deductible of $6200.
You don’t to me a math genius to see the massive increase in healthcare insurance premiums that I have endured.
And I am not alone. Millions of Americans like me are paying these outrageous healthcare costs to subsidize Obamacare.
Oh, in case you are wondering, I have gone through five different health care insurance providers (Aetna, Humana, AvMed, Blue Cross, Coventry) since Obamacare was signed into law.
