Here is what Obama supporters, and Obama himself, don't comprehend.
That family that must cancel their cable and not have cell phones just to pay the premiums are only the tip of the iceburg.
Dare not get sick! If you do, you must pay the huge deductibles, which they don't tell you up front are seperate for your major medical AND pharmacy!
Yep, that's the truth!
So, out of pocket, you pay the premium, then every expense, medication, bill, everything else, out of pocket, BEFORE the insurance kicks in!
Now, tell me, if they had to cancel their cable and not have cell phones just to pay the premiums, what do they do when they get sick and have to have
medication? You can't make payments at the pharmacy, and now most doctors want their visit fees up front before they will even see you! What's left to
You got it! Back to the E.R. where they will see you now, and let you make payments, right?
Wrong! If you do not pay a substantial amount on that bill monthly, and I mean 3-400 a month, it now goes straight to collections within 30 or 60
days! Gone are the days when if you at least pay something on a bill, they won't come after you, or even sue you.
Yes they can! Yes they can! Making 50.00, 100.00 a month payments? Not good enough. Collections for 3 months, then the next thing you know, the
sheriff is knocking on the door.
Collections agents are the worst, now. They spoof their numbers so you can't prove they are harrassing you, they call you 15, 20, even 30 times a DAY!
But, no cellphone, no worry!
How are these families supposed to even buy medications, now that the pharmacies that colluded with the government via lobbyists, or in backroom deals
personally, have raised prices on many generic drugs?
Yes, they colluded, sitting in the shadows, seeing this beast coming down the pike, knowing all the huge deductibles were going to be bringing us,
self paying dolts to their retail stores, where they will CLEAN YOUR CLOCK on generic drugs now. But, they have 3.00 prescriptions! Hahahah, no. Most
meds are no longer covered, only a rare few, and only some minor antibiotics. Take some serious meds? You are out of LUCK.
Oh yes, 140% increase in the cost of generics since last year, because us suckers bought the bill. You WILL spend every penny you have on your life if
you get sick. You will eat Rahmen soup, white bread, and peanut butter for weeks while you struggle to pay for the doctor to just operate on you,
BEFORE surgery. You will wait until the money is in the wallet before being taken care of.
If it's an emergency, just prepare to be robbed. Hospital bills now range in the 40 thousand plus mark. And that is for a SHORT, uncomplicated stay.
Have a trauma, 100,000 or more!
More than many make in a year, but, you WILL pay 10,000 before the insurance will touch the bill. Hope you can come up with it before the year is up.
If not, bye bye benefit!
In the meantime, you need a place to live, electricity, water, gas, a car? Hah. Good luck.
Food and clothing? Shoes? Anything else? The cellphone and the cable won't even matter! You won't have electricity anyway. And guess what?
Best hope your job pays benefits while you are out of work, or, that you are smart enough to pay for short term disability, yet another monthly
premium. Otherwise, you lose your paycheck, and by default, your insurance, too? Can you imagine the COBRA to carry these premiums?!
So, what did we all just gain? One payor? My arse. We ARE the one payor! Not Uncle Sugar, US! The insurance companies raking in all the premiums are
not even participants in the exchange, especially private employer insurance! Suckers.
ETA - And on top of it all, they expect you to save for retirement?! Lololol! Hahahahah! Heheheh! Oh my.
