Obama lies on Obamacare proven, California health insurance premiums increase 64 to 146 percent, Like your health insurance?, Job cuts new taxes increased costs, Affordable health care act???

“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.”…Barack Obama

“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)[1] imposes numerous tax hikes that transfer more than $500 billion over 10 years—and more in the future—from hardworking American families and businesses to Congress for spending on new entitlements and subsidies. In addition, higher tax rates on working and investing will discourage economic growth both now and in the future, further lowering the standard of living.”…Heritage Foundation

“Can we stop calling ObamaCare the Affordable Care Act now?”…Guilford College student

Obama lies on Obamacare have now been proven.

Why would anyone be surprised?

Some of Obama’s lies on Obamacare include:

Obamacare is not a tax.

Obamacare will keep health care costs down.

Obama is creating jobs.

You can keep your existing health care coverage.

From Forbes May 30, 2013.
“Rate Shock: In California, Obamacare To Increase Individual Health Insurance Premiums By 64-146%”

“One of the most serious flaws with Obamacare is that its blizzard of regulations and mandates drives up the cost of insurance for people who buy it on their own. This problem will be especially acute when the law’s main provisions kick in on January 1, 2014, leading many to worry about health insurance “rate shock.”

Last week, the state of California claimed that its version of Obamacare’s health insurance exchange would actually reduce premiums. “These rates are way below the worst-case gloom-and-doom scenarios we have heard,” boasted Peter Lee, executive director of the California exchange.

But the data that Lee released tells a different story: Obamacare, in fact, will increase individual-market premiums in California by as much as 146 percent.

Lee’s claims that there won’t be rate shock in California were repeated uncritically in some quarters. “Despite the political naysayers,” writes my Forbes colleague Rick Ungar, “the healthcare exchange concept appears to be working very well indeed in states like California.” A bit more analysis would have prevented Rick from falling for California’s sleight-of-hand.

Here’s what happened. Last week, Covered California—the name for the state’s Obamacare-compatible insurance exchange—released the rates that Californians will have to pay to enroll in the exchange.

“The rates submitted to Covered California for the 2014 individual market,” the state said in a press release, “ranged from two percent above to 29 percent below the 2013 average premium for small employer plans in California’s most populous regions.”

That’s the sentence that led to all of the triumphant commentary from the left. “This is a home run for consumers in every region of California,” exulted Peter Lee.

Except that Lee was making a misleading comparison. He was comparing apples—the plans that Californians buy today for themselves in a robust individual market—and oranges—the highly regulated plans that small employers purchase for their workers as a group. The difference is critical.

Obamacare to double individual-market premiums

If you’re a 25 year old male non-smoker, buying insurance for yourself, the cheapest plan on Obamacare’s exchanges is the catastrophic plan, which costs an average of $184 a month. (That’s the median monthly premium across California’s 19 insurance rating regions.)

The next cheapest plan, the “bronze” comprehensive plan, costs $205 a month. But in 2013, on eHealthInsurance.com (NASDAQ:EHTH), the average cost of the five cheapest plans was only $92.

In other words, for the average 25-year-old male non-smoking Californian, Obamacare will drive premiums up by between 100 and 123 percent.

Under Obamacare, only people under the age of 30 can participate in the slightly cheaper catastrophic plan. So if you’re 40, your cheapest option is the bronze plan. In California, the median price of a bronze plan for a 40-year-old male non-smoker will be $261.

But on eHealthInsurance, the average cost of the five cheapest plans was $121. That is, Obamacare will increase individual-market premiums by an average of 116 percent.

For both 25-year-olds and 40-year-olds, then, Californians under Obamacare who buy insurance for themselves will see their insurance premiums double.”

From the Greensboro News Record May 30, 2013.

“Like your health care policy? Affordable Care Act may change it”

“Many people who buy their own health insurance could get surprises in the mail this fall: cancellation notices because their current policies aren’t up to the basic standards of President Barack Obama’s health care law.

They, and some small businesses, will have to find replacement plans – and that has some state insurance officials worried about consumer confusion.

Rollout of the Affordable Care Act is going full speed ahead, despite repeal efforts by congressional Republicans. New insurance markets called exchanges are to open in every state this fall. Middle-class consumers who don’t get coverage on the job will be able to pick private health plans, while low-income people will be steered to an expanded version of Medicaid in states that accept it.

The goal is to cover most of the nation’s nearly 50 million uninsured, but even Obama says there will be bumps in the road. And discontinued insurance plans could be another bump.

Also, it doesn’t seem to square with one of the president’s best known promises about his health care overhaul: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.””

“”You’re going to be forcibly upgraded,” said Bob Laszewski, a health care industry consultant. “It’s like showing up at the airline counter and being told, `You have no choice, $300 please. You’re getting a first-class ticket, why are you complaining?'”

Obama’s promise dates back to June of 2009, when Congress was starting to grapple with overhauling the health care system to cover uninsured Americans. Later that summer, public anxieties about changes would erupt at dozens of angry congressional town hall meetings with constituents.

“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period,” the president reassured the American Medical Association. “No one will take it away, no matter what.””

From Citizen Wells November 25, 2012.

Wake Forest declined an interview request for this article. But it has said in other accounts that the roughly 6 percent staff cut is a pre-emptive measure for expected budget cuts and rising costs. And it expects remaining workers will become more productive as a result.

That’s a delicate balance, said Mark Graban, a national expert and consultant on health care management who lives in San Antonio, Texas.

“It’s easy to add up the cost savings of reduced payroll,” he said. “But it’s hard to add up the side effect of those layoffs.”

He said layoffs are sweeping the industry. Graban referred to a report from the American Hospital Association that says hospitals will cut 93,000 jobs during 2013.

  1. Full Dimensions of IRS Scandal Emerge
    The revelation that acting IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House at least 157 times during the period in which conservative groups were being targeted with tax audits gives us the first real indication of the extent to which this scandal reaches into the White House.

    The incredible frequency of the visits — essentially weekly — indicate that President Obama must have been deeply involved with the inner workings of the audits and harassment of conservative groups. If Schulman was in the White House every week, what was he there to talk about?

  3. CABBYAz and SUEQ……..

    The real reason Shulman was at the white house every week was O’BUMMER was working on his KILL-LIST a week at a time and he had to get his weekly instructions from the defacto pResident, Val Jarrett…..Shulman was just the HITMAN…..
    I heard a rumor that Suman tried to steal the Easter eggs…don’t know if it’s true or not, but wouldn’t put it past him…..he looks real shiffty to me….good thing I wasn’t drinking when I wrote SHIFFTY….I would have most likely misspelled it…lol

    They own ARMOUR, and about a dozen other big companies scattered across America…….

    Knowing how the CHINESE work….we can now expect some rat poison, or some other odd things to start showing up in our morning bacon……..

    Now something like that would just spoil my day…guess I will have to start eating beef, or go veggie all the way (which is not a bad idea) ……

    “Boots On Ground: Sheriff Joe Arpaio Obama ID Fraud Presentation From CSPOA In Missouri”

    “Our reporter arrived at the airport and is headed to the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association Convention (CSPOA) being held in St. Charles, Missouri. He is now headed to the CSPOA Convention location to set up for Sheriff Arpaio’s scheduled Obama ID fraud presentation which begins at 4:10 PM Missouri time. Once the presentation is complete he will provide an update and get back to work.

    If things roll smooth our reporter will try to provide updates during the actual presentation. He will be recording two camera angles and he is all by himself. So bear with us. We don’t have the resources the big dogs have. It is a two man show working from two different states.

    Also, Carl Gallups will have some coverage on his radio show Freedom Fridays starting at 5 PM ET. If you miss the live broadcast Birther Report will provide an archived version shortly after the live broadcast.”


  13. AFB,
    To build on your comment, my understanding is that Smithfield is based in NC. I used to know someone who worked there. Also, I think (not sure) that all so-called Virginia hams, actually come from North Carolina. That surprised me. Anyway, someone here will probably know. I am curious also.

  14. PS………..used to own a small deli. When I ordered Virginia ham, it said “Product of North Carolina”.

    PS – Tornadoes are providing a “RATINGS” frenzy with the cable stations.

    RATINGS – Cleavage – “ABSOLUTELY”

  30. Mr. Bill,

    Devastation in Oklahoma tonight. Fatalities, two of them were a mother and a baby.

    Waiting to hear from Air Force Brat who’s in a tornado shelter right now.

  31. Just heard from Air Force Brat; she and her best friend made it through just fine in the shelter. No damage to her house, as far as she can tell.

    She thanks you all for your prayers.

    Let’s hope we don’t see anything like this again any time soon.

  32. Air Force Brat!

    SueK and CWers — many thanks for the prayers. The bigger of the two tornadoes that plowed through my part of the Oklahoma City area was something like TWO MILES WIDE at one point. It went just barely south of my house. The other one followed right on its heels. On further inspection, there was some water in the middle of the bathroom floor, but no wet spots in the ceiling, water running down the walls, etc., so I’m not sure exactly how it happened. Won’t be able to get up on the roof and take a look until tomorrow.

    Mr. Bill — I know you didn’t mean your post the way it sounded. At least, I hope you didn’t.

  33. Glad to hear you are okay AFB. Oklahoma has definitely had more than its share of all this stuff. We’re waiting to hear from some friends in AR. Heard they got some of that same system or was it another one? Last we saw were some pictures taken from their front porch that were pretty dark and ominous.

  34. Thanks for the videos, Gordo!

  35. thistle | May 31, 2013 at 11:42 pm |


    If your friends are in northwest AR then, yes, it’s the same system.

    Hope they’re OK, too. I dread reading the news out of OK as they assess the damage.

  36. Good early morning CW et. al.,


    Just for you. JOKE OF THE DAY!

    …Now I know I”ll catch some friendly slack from a few of my beloved Blonde Friends here, and nothing against them. 🙂 But this is still funny…

    A blonde, a brunette, and a redhead all work at the same office for a female boss who always goes home early.
    “Hey, girls,” says the brunette one day, “let’s go home early tomorrow. She’ll never know.”

    So the next day, they all leave right after the boss does. The brunette gets some extra gardening done, the redhead goes to a bar, and the blonde goes home to find her husband having sex with the female boss.

    She quietly sneaks out of the house and vows to return home at her normal time the next day.

    In the morning, the brunette says: “That was fun, we should do it again sometime.”

    “No way,” says the blonde. “I almost got caught.”

  37. citizenwells

    Good morning William, et al.

  38. William,

    I would love to comment on your joke, but suffice it to say that the blonde represents our society…………timid, blind,clueless, (don’t make waves). A much deeper response than your joke deserves, but I can’t help myself.

    Btw, good morning all!

  39. SueQ,

    🙂 I understand ( I think), Although I’m not blonde, I have blonde roots, just ask my wife whom happens to be blonde, but the smarts of the family.

    Unless it deals with “Man-Stuff”, I have a 15 second delay in getting it! LOL

  40. SueQ,

    Now I get your correlation relationship between Blondes and our Society.
    See, told you it would take me a few…. 🙂

  41. OldSailor80,

    How are you doing today Big Guy? Hope to hear from you today.

  44. Hi William,

    I should have just let your joke stand on it’s own…..but I always seem to drive people crazy with my own corelations. Here, the blonde (our country), witnesses with their own eyes the infidelity of their leader, yet is afraid they will be targetted if they don’t keep their mouth shut.

  45. WILLIAM at 5:39am…..

    Just for you. JOKE OF THE DAY!
    that’s good….real good. caught it on the first go around !!! thanks


    Our Country is run by such Crooked people it can’t help itself.

    I recently learned that the United States has entered into a contract with one firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided that it no longer needs these buildings (many of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country).

    The sale of these properties will bring in BILLIONS of dollars and, with that, MILLIONS of dollars in commissions for the one Company that is in charge of handling the sale and negotiation of the new leases.

    What makes this such a matter of concern to me is that the Company that the Government has contracted with to conduct the sales (and the corresponding leases for the new locations of the displaced post offices) is owned by Richard Blum .

    What? Didn’t that name mean anything to you? Maybe I should re-phrase and say that the person that owns the company that is solely in charge of this multi -million- dollar transaction is Richard Blum the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein .

    Diane is too busy with her fake gun control !
    I thought we had strict LAWS against such crap as this…….Am I wrong?
    Of course, dear Diane had nothing to do in swinging this sweet deal to her dead beat hubby….

    I suggest we put Diane and her husband both in jail until we figure this one out.

    “Law men and elected officials “SHOCKED” by new evidence Obama Birth credentials fraudulently and criminally fabricated!Biggest FRAUD in US History!”

    “Carl Gallups is reporting that he just got off the telephone with Mike Zullo immediately after Mike made is public presentation at the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Convention in St. Charles, Missouri, this morning.

    According to Carl, Mike Zullo reports that the overwhelming response of the lawmen and elected officials is that of absolute SHOCK. He said that one official came up to him and said, “I have been purposely ignoring this matter – until NOW! I will ignore it no longer.” Zullo reports that several constitutional officers, public officials, attorneys, elected officials, and others are now pledging full and personal support in moving this matter to a congressional investigation.

    Remember – this movement is the result of the PUBLIC presentation only. The full PRIVATE presentation for lawmen and elected-officials-only (credentials checked at the door) will be made later on this morning. In that two hour meeting, Zullo, with full authority of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, pledges to reveal all the criminal investigation material they possess in this matter. We can only imagine the reaction and outrage that will ensue once these constitution loving, patriotic officials see the pile of criminal evidence. …”


  48. SueK | June 1, 2013 at 2:52 am

    Thanks SueK……we are still waiting to hear something and yes, they live in NW AR and don’t have a personal shelter. Hoping they found one somewhere else and are ok.

  49. GORDO | May 31, 2013 at 3:22 pm |

    Thanks for alerting us about the CSPOA Convention. I attempted, but wasn’t able to attend the 11am presentation (no credentials). I did have the opportunity to chat with Don Jeffrey a while and passed on some information from my files. Mr. Jeffrey is a man of great faith and believes that there is an evil presence in the White House. Can’t argue with that.
