And the political contributions begin to vanish at this meeting.
"The Democrats own this and they know it. " No way are we electing any of these representatives that voted for or who back the ACA. " We vote not
give any more money to any political candidate period. " why should I even be in a union, you guys suck giving our union dues away"
I heard this at company meeting /union meeting two weeks ago. I took a friend to there company meeting because his car was in the shop that night. I
asked if I could stick around instead of coming back later. Free food .
The meeting was health related to insurance companies. It appears this union doesn't hold a get out of jail free card on the ACA. Some how this
meeting ended up as political contributions debate / lets cut them off to the Democrat Party candidates and incumbents. Wow did it get hot in there.
Not one person had anything good to say. The members did not like the prices , plans, or anything from the insurance representative.
Cancellations for everyone.
Some have had there plans canceled already. I would say about half of them by the yelling that was going on about it. Some were told by insurance
representatives their additional existing plan held by just about every other member would be canceled soon . That makes it 100 percent at this
meeting. I take it this was some kind of open enrollment or preview of plans for a future open enrollment date. then insurance companies reps went
into damage control mode.
So, looks like there just going to cut out all political contributions mostly directed at the Democrats. Seems to be the only card this company
has. There actually going to vote on it next meeting.
My favorite "Lets give them change , then they guy threw some change on the floor. "
No filming or voice recordings were allowed ,.except the official recorder.big sign when you go in. I would have loved to put it up here on ATS. I
thought unions were exempt from the ACA. Appears only just few are. I cannot divulge the name. I'm not a member.
Dinner, yelling, comedy what a night . American has spoken! At least at this company union meeting.
OP your policy cost sound about right to me . My in-laws just had an increase from Blue Cross Blue Shield. two people from 558 per month to 1,473.00
per month. There plan included more than any gold ACA Obama plan does. This really concerns my wife and I because my in-laws are in there 80,s so
why should there plan be canceled and forced to pay almost 1,500 per month. I keep thinking of these death panels that were talked about for the older
generation. They could not afford to cancel or pay the entire monthly amount. Here what happened thought my monther in law is still on with Blue
cross for $725 per month new policy from blue cross, but my father in law dropped his policy from Blue Cross and signed up. At the Veteran hospital.
Which provides just as much care as Blue Cross of not better. He was not about to go for the ACA by any means.
I wish you well OP and hope everything works out.
To the people on here defending this ACA wait until your parents meet Obama care. Maybe then you defenders will wake up and realize how bad this
really is. People on fixed incomes can not afford this. Nor can the poor.
Medicare is really not that good either lots of provider problems . My in laws were Democrats they are no more.
