With Obamacare, it’s nuns, not employees, losing their rights

Text Size: A | A

With Obamacare, it’s nuns, not employees, losing their rights I was amused somewhat by Frank Elfland’s Jan. 5 letter, “Don’t yield to Catholics on contraception,” as he tried to argue that the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to side with the nuns on their objection to contraceptive coverage in their insurance was, as he called it, “hogwash.” He stated that it was an example of a Catholic predilection of “forcing others to accept their religious practices,” ...

My first dealing with my insurance after Obamacare. I had a biopsi. I paid my copay and now I get two bills totaling over $1100 for out of pocket expenses. Even though they are $1100 in bills my letter from the insurance company said I have $338 of my $2500 out of pocket. At this rate I will pay $10,000 out of pocket to satisfy my $2500 out of pocket expenses. Obamacare sucks and so does obama and anyone that voted for that idiot.

wmarincic. Hope the test was negative. This will hit those idiots eventually but seeing De Blasio elected Mayor leads me to believe the stupid still outnumber the sane and somehow the DNC will effectively blame the Republicans. No way the MSM will allow the Democrats to take the fall for a plan they conceived, designed and pushed through congress. It's their job to see nothing negative touches the Democrats. Mark my words, if lefties start paying more, your taxes will be raised to give them an additional subsidy.

But gosh, you never say whether the policy that screwed you was the one you'd been carrying, or one you got through the ACA. I can't help thinking that if you'd gone through the insurance market for that policy we'd all have had the pleasure of your rants about that experience, and so far nothing. So which was it?

It was a policy through my employer that had to change to a $5000 out of pocket expense plus a $500 deductible before the policy kicks in. We had to do it to keep our insurance affordable for the whole company. As was told by our insurance broker, we are now supporting those without insurance due to the ACA.

I could blather on and on about my daughters policy that will cost her $300/ month plus a huge deductible on a $20k income. Of course she is not eligible for any subsidies. I was tempted to re-enter her data and make her a minority to she how much she'd get. She is just one of the many swarming to the ACA for health care. Not because she didn't have any but because you liberals passed the dumbest law in history that got her policy canceled. Tell us chuck, how many of the signers you love citing had insurance before you forced your plan on them? You constantly made up
a fluctuating number of uninsured to push this out. How about you start citing all the people that never had insurance who signed up? Being a committed lefty means you don't really care about or even understand what facts are, but the reality is your Messiah has screwed us all. Now your union lackeys are squawking. Why is that Chucky? Explain why those committed lefties dont like the ACA? My daughter wont be buying a new car now and we'll just keep patching the old one. Thats the reality (not the fantasy you live in) of the ACA on the economy.

And so you did blather...
Here's one thing 'we liberals' don't tend to do, paint with broad brushes. Which explains why the Democratic Party (which I'm not a member of) is inclusive, and the Republicans...well not so much.
.
I'm pretty confident that whatever anyone posts in rebuttal to your (both) blather, you'll imagine some kind of weird conspiracy. Responding is futile except to try to balance the noise. And I'm pretty confident a source like Harvard University probably causes all manner of puckering and fear, but for all others here's some data compiled by Theda Skocpol, professor of government and sociology at Harvard University and director of the Scholars Strategy Network that shows the effect of GOP monkey-wrenching of the process.

You're like the drunk relative who shows up at the family party, trashes the house and guests, and then b!tches about what an awful party it was. Cya in 2016!
