Obama care got off to a rocky start, [snip].
I'll say it, "Obama Care Sucks".
Sure millions have insurance that didn't have it before. Tired of that argument.
They couldn't afford it 'then' they can't afford it now and the taxpayer/insured pays for it. These 'millions are subsidised" Why not focus resources
there? (That's a side note). How can these 'millions of newly insured' actually pay thier deductables? $6650? OOP at $7200? ER $650.00? etc. etc.
Sure one can pay $5k a year per INDIVIDUAL and get that down...really folks?
So...placing the same government that is in charge of the V.A. is the best choice for healthcare? NO...it sucks.
I used to carry the weight of 75% of a small employee base (healthcare costs individual) prior to this fiasco. I carry none now them and they are
stuck with fines and/or outragous costs and 100% of thier own costs. I gave out raises to compensate some, but for every dollar an hour I pay more I
am taxed more and so is the employee.
It is a disaster and will not get any better.
