KOmmies Suddenly Discover That ObamaCare STINKS!!!
“But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it....”
So promised Nancy Pelousi and now that the KOmmies have had a chance to finally see what is in ObamaCare, they are in a state of shock since they have FINALLY discovered that ObamaCare STINKS bigtime as you can see in this THREAD, "Obama and Dems may have jost lost their most stalwart supporter with this Obamacare ruling." Gee! And you are only just NOW finding out how horrible ObamaCare is? Don't worry, I'm sure you can find a way to blame the Republicans for foisting ObamaCare upon you. So let us now watch the KOmmies moan and groan about the ObamaCare they used to ardently desire in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if ObamaCare will cover Pelousi's botox treatments, in in the [barackets]:
Obama and Dems may have jost lost their most stalwart supporter with this Obamacare ruling
[Too bad the fine print was at the bottom of page 1724 of the 2000+ page ObamaCare bill.]
I was a stalwart all through the past four years plus, never wavering when others jumped on and off the bandwagon. But this NYT article just crushed me like a grape:
[A crushed grape and now you "wine" about ObamaCare.]
The Obama administration adopted a strict definition of affordable health insurance on Wednesday that will deny federal financial assistance to millions of Americans with modest incomes who cannot afford family coverage offered by employers.
In deciding whether an employer’s health plan is affordable, the Internal Revenue Service said it would look at the cost of coverage only for an individual employee, not for a family. Family coverage might be prohibitively expensive, but federal subsidies would not be available to help buy insurance for children in the family.
The policy decision came in a final regulation interpreting ambiguous language in the 2010 health care law.
[SURPRISE!!! There is no "affordable" in the Affordable Care Act.]
I had been banking on being able to finally get health care starting January 1, 2014. Three days over the past few years have been especially meaningful (after, of course, Election Night '08 and the January 2009 inauguration): the day the PPACA law passed, the day the SCOTUS mostly upheld it, and this past Election Day (which seemed to seal its prospects against ever being repealed, though at the moment I'm less sure of that).
[You forgot to include the meaningful day when you suffered ObamaCare sticker shock.]
My wife works as a primary school special ed teacher. Her job provides decent insurance for her with no premium. To add me and our kids to the policy, though, would cost $577 a month out of a paycheck that right now is only $2400 a month, take home, and does not stretch super far as it is. This is just plain unaffordable for us. Yet the news is, we are shit out of luck.
[Welcome to the UNAFFORDABLE Care Act.]
Almost insulting are the paltry breadcrumbs found in the "silver lining":
Under the law, people who go without insurance will generally be subject to tax penalties. In a separate proposed regulation issued on Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service said that the uninsured children and spouse of an employee would be exempt from the penalties if the cost of coverage for the entire family under an employer’s plan was more than 8 percent of household income.
So rather than helping me get my family covered, you just won't punish us because we can't afford it? Thank you Obama.
[Yup! You sure are sh*t out of luck.]
Democrats had better be careful. It looks like the Pubs might be right on what a clusterf*ck this will be.
[Remember, NOT ONE "Pub" voted for ObamaCare.]
Indeed. I am beyond livid here...despairing, really. How can this be happening?!?
[It is happening because like your fellow socialists, you are a naive IDIOT KOmmie SlackerInc. And now to the other disillusioned KOmmies...]
That ruling just plain sucks and the 'silver lining' ain't that silvery either.
[The ruling sucks? How about the ENTIRE ObamaCare law?]
My wife has not been too crazy about Obamacare and I have defended it to the death. I hope this thing is not going down the toilet like the Republicans predicted.
[It IS going down the toilet just like the Republicans predicted.]
The way its going it will end up as zero change other than mandating health insurance - not only did we not get Single/payer public option but those of us that don't want to hand over chunks of cash to the health insurance will be penalized. The sad thing is that this was all very predictable.
[The sad thing is that the DEMOCRATS passed ObamaCare without even reading it.]
But if you can't afford insurance you still end up paying the fine, subsidizing someone else's insurance while getting none of your own. How is that even remotely fair or right? It makes things actually WORSE for a lot of people.
[“But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it....”]
[And a death panel has ruled that you are already brain dead.]
Where is the "Affordable" in the Affordable Care Act?
[Gone With the Wind.]
F*CK WHOEVER TOOK THIS DECISION AND I HOPE THEY GET SOME DAMN VIRUS UP THEIR ASS THAT MAKES THEM PUKE AND POOP NON STOP FOR A WEEK
[Oh, and you have to pay big bucks for mental health coverage under ObamaCare.]
