His insurance went up, so no fan of Obamacare

OlympiaSeptember 27, 2013 

Having just received my new health care bill, I am wondering exactly what our president was talking about when he pitched this law. My health care has gone up 30 percent since the law passed and another 30 percent with the implementation for less coverage. He said health care would go down $3,000 a year not up $6,000 per year.

He said you could keep your plan. Not true, my plan was canceled. You have to wonder if he read the bill or was simply not telling the truth. Many people will be in the same boat considering most businesses are simply going to pay employees to buy their own coverage.

Get ready for a shock when they do: You will pay income tax on the money and your health care could double in cost. So much for the so-called Affordable Care Act.
