It was all about getting past the 2012 elections, and it was all predicted.

Money for nothing, it’s failing – bug or feature?
That is the least of our worries.
Hey – great offer for me here in the hinterlands! Just a modest increase in my deductible to $2K – and – my monthly premium is “only” gonna go from about $570 to a little under ONE THOUSAND BUCKS!
Are you friggin’ kidding me?
So – The Plan is to get a giant, big honking deductible and a modest increase in the monthly … and hope that I neither get hit by a large semi or get some incredibly horrific disease prior to becoming REALLY ancient and signing up for Medicare in autumn.
“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
Love that “unexpectedly”.
Like they used to say under Stalin-Krushchev-Brezhnev- etc.: “For the 35th year in a row, unexpectedly adverse weather conditions have again reduced the grain harvest to levels inferior to those provided for by the Soviet ministry of economic planning………”
O’Care was a shit plan from the get-go. Anybody who didn’t realize that wasn’t paying attention. Left-wing Dems like Mark Dayton in MN are now crying their crocodile tears because of the rate increases. Anybody with an IQ in double digits knew this was the plan all along on the way to a Socialist single payer system for the entire country.
All this “unexpectedly” is called Gaslighting, a real term. Bill Whittle explains the scary reality behind Obama’s Gaslighting expertise.
And the O-care co-ops go unexpectedly insolvent…
Would love to be able to step back in time and get involved in the ’09 debates again on the “deficit neutral” arguments on OCare. Given that subsidies are determined as % of income (with incomes certainly not increasing at these premium rates), the BEST case for impact on government expenditures is for those who are 100% subsidized. Simple math: 100% subsidized, 20% increase in premiums is 20% increase in cost to government. 25% subsidized (so let’s say $1,000 premium goes to $1,200, subsidy was $250, now subsidy $450), gives 80% increase in cost to government (and us).
What difference, at this point, does that make?
