Another Obama broken promise

Maybe some liberals will happen by this article and give us one, just one single reason why anyone should trust Barack Hussein Obama. The mantra we hear nowadays from those liberals since the "Affordable" Healthcare Act has been implemented and us conservatives think it should be repealed is that, we just want to deny people affordable healthcare.

The absurdity of that claim is out of touch with reality for at least 2 reasons. First, why would anyone want to deny anyone else affordable healthcare or affordable health insurance? Right, just because I'm a mean conservative, I want people to pay more for medical services. Intellectually dishonest absurdity is the hallmark of liberal talking points.

And secondly, how can anyone even begin to assert that the Affordable Healthcare Act made health insurance more affordable? Wrapped in 2,000 pages of lawyerspeak, how could it have? The preposterous attempt by the Obama administration to trot out success stories on how people now have "affordable" healthcare is one of the most utterly absurd things any administration in history has tried to get away with.

There is zero affordability with Obamacare and when examined closer, many of the so-called success stories involve other people paying for their insurance premiums through tax credits that come from the pockets of people paying full price for their plans. One such story is of a 29-year-old single mom named Angele. Angele's story is that she is getting healthcare for only $18 month...because of a tax credit.

Really? That is a success story by the propaganda wielding Obama spin machine? No insurance company in the world can afford to give a health insurance plan to any individual for a measly $18 a month. That is the height of fact bending, smoke and mirrors, disinformation. Angele is paying an $18 a month premium because she is getting a tax credit. She is not paying for her insurance, someone else is! They're known as the US taxpayer.

It would be nice if the purveyors of political obfuscation would give us a single, honest example of any such person paying less for their healthcare under Obamacare who is not also being subsidized by other taxpayers.

Obamacare is a lie and Barack Obama's promises were nothing but marketing gimmicks to a gullible public. There is no other way to put it.

Read more below from The Washington Examiner:

Americans buying health insurance outside the new Obamacare exchanges are being forced to swallow premiums up to 56 percent higher than before the health law took effect because insurers have jumped the cost to cover all the added features of the new Affordable Care Act.

According to a cost report from eHealthInsurance, a nationwide online private insurance exchange, families are paying an average of $663 a month and singles $274 a month, far more than before Obamacare kicked in. What’s more, to save money, most buyers are choosing the lowest level of coverage, the so-called “bronze” plans.

The firm provided the costs to Secrets through their new online price index, which gives the averages of what people are paying for insurance sold through their system. In California, for example, some families are paying a high of $2,604 a month and in New York, $1,845.
