There is so much going on today but it is really important that you listen to the speech our President gave about Obamacare at the airport today. Our President is a fighter and he realizes that his opponent (Democrats and Republican Senators) did not prepare for a 15 round fight. We are in round 13 and the body blows our President has been throwing through the first 12 rounds have the opponent unwilling to put their guard to protect their head because of the pain their ribs and kidneys are feeling.
Don’t get caught up with all this BS about not having enough votes to pass a bill for repeal and replace. As much as the GOPe in the Senate want to kill the repeal bill and replace bill, the pressure will be so great because every single week that goes by, more and more of these stories will be unfolding.
What an incredible job using two actual families that have been destroyed because of Obamacare. The family from Dayton, Ohio went from having a plan and a doctor they loved. They lost both in 2013! If the wife, that just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, wanted to keep her doctor, it would have cost $50,000 a year because of Obamacare. The family’s premium has quadrupled and their deductible is a staggering $15,000 a year.
The second family is from Louisville, Kentucky. The husband owns a business that provided incredible choices for his 11 employees with quality healthcare prior to Obamacare. Because of Obamacare, those 11 employees have less choices and their premiums have gone up by 150%. The owner can’t afford to hire any additional employees because of Obamacare.
Our President also shared that 93,650 families paid $16.5 million dollars in penalty costs rather than buying health insurance for their families through Obamacare. He said that the Democrats are complete OBSTRUCTIONISTS. He also gave credit to the Republican House and expects the Republican Senate to pass a bill that will eventually land on his desk.
Some other great news from today! This is HUGE because it will literally destroy Obamacare in many more states.
There could be a tidal wave of terrible news coming for Obamacare
The Ohio counties joined a large swath of eastern Missouri that lost coverage after the exit of Blue Cross Blue Shield Kansas City in May.
An exchange with no insurer is a seriously worrying prospect for any insurance market. People on the exchange currently would likely lose their coverage next year if no other insurer steps in. While it is likely they would not have to pay the ACA’s tax penalty, these people would not see the benefits of coverage.
Given Anthem’s political worries, there is a strong possibility the insurer could pull out of the other 13 states where they provide exchange plans if issues aren’t resolved in Washington by the time the company has to submit its 2018 plans in late June.
