Sticker Shock Hits Obamacare Fanboys in California

God, this is funny.

And yet, utterly depressing. Because you KNOW these people are STILL going to vote for Democrats as long as they live, wanting so badly to believe the "pretty lies" they are told.

Even when it is CRUSHING their bank accounts.
"I was laughing at Boehner -- until the mail came today,"Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.
"I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy." 
Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level -- the cutoff for a tax credit. And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn't realize they would rise so much. 
"Of course, I want people to have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."
So I guess that whole, "your premiums will do down by $2700 a year" was uh, what, exactly?

I hope it gets even MORE expensive for them. And may the waiting list for seeing a doctor someday for a future life threatening illness be long, and painful.

/cue Clark Griswold: "Hallelujiah, holy sh**, where's the Tylenol!"


  1. Did you even read the whole article, Czabe. You fail to point out the 64 year old woman who's premiums went down by $500 a month. I guess picking only the examples that back up your viewpoints is your strategy and lets ignore facts that don't fit. I also don't know how you can wish a life threatening illness and pain on someone just because they voted differently than you. I'm sure if a liberal said the same thing, you would just let it slide?

  2. It only confirms my belief in the ACA. If you are sick, you don't have to become bankrupt. If you are not you pay more to make sure you pay less when you become sick. And all of us at some point will become sick.

  3. So you are saying since I make more money, I have to pay more to cover the health costs those with a less or subsidized income. How very socialist of you. So what I gave to charities to support those who are really suffering, I am no longer able to do so because health insurance is going to cost me more. Can you not see where this is leading? If you keep forcing ones who make more money to pay for those who make less pretty soon no one will have any extra money to give. We will all be broke. Any economist will tell you that this the beginning of the end. Also can't keep raising the deficit and not budget and pay our debt. This economic house of cards our Government is perpetuating is going to eventually crash and crash hard. Then we will all be without: without jobs, without income, without healthcare.

  4. How very utopian sounding. Pay more when you are healthy and pay less when you are sick. Why didn't I think of that? What you really mean is, "get laid off or have your hours cut because of Obamacare and then take whatever rationed care might be available six months after you get sick because the gubmint has created a shortage doctors and medicine." That's the reality. Go into the government hospital with a broken leg and end up getting bedsores and typhus.

  5. The only thing worse than having the "rich" is not having the "rich"!!
