Did you know that according to HHS.Gov/HealthCare (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services:
- Because of the Affordable Care Act, health care is finally affordable for millions of Americans and their families: Premiums are holding stable and nearly 8 in 10 current consumers could get covered for $100 or less after tax credits. Before the Affordable Care Act, consumers on the individual market often were subject to double-digit rate increases. On average, Marketplace premiums are seeing only modest increases.
- 87% of people who selected 2015 plans through HealthCare.gov in the first two months of Open Enrollment got financial assistance to help lower the cost of premiums.
- Insurers have decided that the Marketplace is a good place to do business and as a result, consumers have more choices. Twenty-five percent more issuers have joined the Marketplace, and consumers can choose from an average of 40 health plans, which is up from 30 in 2014.
- Consumers have saved $9 billion since 2011, because the law requires insurance companies to spend at least 80 cents of every dollar on consumers’ health care and empowers states to review and negotiate premium increases.
- Millions of seniors are saving billions of dollars on prescription drugs: 8.2 million seniors have saved more than $11.5 billion on their prescription drugs since 2010 – an average of $1,407 per beneficiary.
Do I live in some sort of magical cosmic delusional reality?
I know absolutely nobody who has benefited from participating in the "Affordable HealthCare Act." In fact, the only responses I have received from my family, friends and social circle are negative. Those who have the wherewithal to afford insurance opted to find their own through private sources. Those who could not afford conventional sources of insurance have opted to forego purchasing any insurance on the Obamacare program because the prices were so high it was easier for them to just pay the fine on their income taxes.
In other words, nothing has changed since the Affordable Care Act was introduced.
Why does our government continue to force feed us such a rosy picture of the success of this economic fiasco?
How about a little "truth in advertising?"
Well, check out the short video below and I think you'll have to agree with the one sentence recap of what Obamacare really is by Dr. Barbara Bellar.
It's easy to tell them about it.
