You have no evidence that your premiums wouldn't have gone up just as much if Obamacare didn't pass.
No, I am not Nostradamus. But from 2002 to 2012, my premiums went up from 180 to 280 a month in total, with little change to deductibles and Out of Pocket Max. In 3 years in Obamacare, they went from 280 to 720, with a 5 times increase in deductible and a triple increase in OOPM.
I shudder to even think what it would be in 2018. A 1000 bucks a month? By 2020 it'll be 10 grand a month?
honestly hope you don't have a pre-existing condition, because if you do, once Obamacare is repealed, you're fucked.
Yes, and that is a big issue. (A YOOGE issue). But bankrupting everyone with healthcare for the sake of those with pre-existing conditions is not a solution. (I think the best solution would be to split off pre-existing conditions into their own pool, but even that's not a great option.)
Btw, I say this as someone WITH a pre-existing condition. So yes, I would lose my healthcare, but it doesn't really matter one way or the other, because I can't afford to pay for it anymore anyway.
Millions of Americans are going to lose their healthcare in a couple months. People are going to die unnecessarily because of what happened last night, and that makes me really sad.
I agree. On the flipside, right now for 2017, there are millions of Americans who can't afford their healthcare anymore, will decide not to get it anymore because they literally won't be able to eat if they do, and then would be TAXED because they apparently "willingly" decide not to get healthcare?
That is not a sustainable system. Especially because it's clear that it's just going to get worse and worse and worse every single year.This comment was edited on Nov 10, 2016, 09:03.
