"Affordable Care Act" Rate Increases
"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."

While reviewing the paperwork we received from BlueCross BlueShield of Georgia, I came across a page which projects the modified "monthly non-smoker premiums" they will be offering as a direct result of ObamaCare. I have scanned and included this page at left. If you want to view it and you are unable to download/capture and enlarge the page, let me know by private email and we'll find a way to get a copy to you.

Note that these are the rates for NON-smokers, and that every single category reflects a SIGNIFICANT increase - despite the fact that they say the rates "may not reflect your actual rate increase." Note also that this verbiage does not in any way suggest that rates will stay the same or go down for anyone for whom the notice is directed. (I have folded the page so that personal information is not included in the scan.)

WE THE PEOPLE are getting pounded by this massively flawed legislation. Make sure you let them know how you feel at the polls next November. If you are favorably impacted by this legislation or if you are still drinking the Kool-Aid, by all means vote DEMOCRAT. If not - give ' em hell and throw the bums out.

Just a wonderin' Sebeoreeno (you and I are probably the only ones to get this spelling of your name): When, or are you ever going to discontinue your daily denunciations of Obamacare?

Is it going to take outright repeal of ACA?

I, for one, have gotten your point.

The audience here is very limited. And I would only add here, buddy, that repetition contributes to dilution emphasis.

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Nov 05, 2013 at 13:01 PM

I will continue my daily denunciations when the story no longer has "legs." Also - it's not just the "point" but also HOW and TO WHAT EXTENT new instances and variations of The Big Screw are revealed. The above - for this site - is NEW information. It relays the specifics of how ObamaCare has "inspired" one of the largest health insurance provides in the State of Georgia to raise their rates nearly 300% on some categories of the insured. This is not some abstract "talking point" - it's FACT.

The facts need to be brought out into the light of day - regardless how large or small the audience might be. As for denunciations of Democrats - as you know I've been doing that for years. When the Democrats change, I'll stop denouncing them. Since they haven't changed in my lifetime, I don't expect them to anytime soon.

Go Dawgs.

...health insurance provideRs in the State, that is...

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Nov 05, 2013 at 13:31 PM

...and here's another reason why the story has legs - HE CONTINUES TO LIE ABOUT WHAT HE SAID:


...but the people are getting the point (his approval rating has now dropped into the 30s):

repetition contributes to the dilution of emphasis to anybody with a competent brain. On the other hand, if you repeat what may or maybe not be a lie often enough, the weak minded amongst us will come to believe it as the truth.

Another new figure... 129 million healthcare plans in trouble and the source Forbes Magazine;

I just observed a piece of the sky falling in front of TOT's house.

Sheran commented on Tuesday, Nov 05, 2013 at 16:23 PM

Here is another reason this law is unfair.


sebekm commented on Tuesday, Nov 05, 2013 at 17:47 PM

It is an outrage. That's why the issue has "legs." The latest is that they are no projecting a "shortage" of doctors - further complicating the administration of ObamaCare.


SHORTAGE? It's no wonder - OBAMACARE IS RUNNING THEM OFF!!! Driving them into retirement; discouraging prospective health care workers; and depressing an already depressed economy. They should have focused on the ECONOMY AND JOBS instead. They didn't - here's another by-product of their misplaced priorities:


People have given up on finding jobs; new graduates can't find jobs; now health care costs will drive people into "choice" between skyrocketing premiums or risking bankruptcy as a result of catastrophic health care costs.


JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Nov 05, 2013 at 19:18 PM

Yes Sebe. You have finally convinced me.....we are all going to HELL over this.

Good call.

timeontarget commented on Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013 at 06:10 AM

I am starting to wonder if this legislation might not have provided the insurance companies with an opportunity to cancel existing policies (already in force) which had previously contained guaranteed non cancellable clauses.

If this is correct then ACA will have been a gift to the powerful insurance companies.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013 at 06:18 AM

Yes Tot. It's all one big conspiratorial hi-jack of our freedoms. Soon they will be kicking in our front doors and taking your guns. You will be prevented from driving your gas guzzling RV anywhere and you will be forced to let a group of homeless people live in it since you already have a house. After that, and when you hit the trigger age, you will be whisked off to the HOME, denied medicine because it costs too much, and forced to eat nothing but apple sauce all
day long til it is time for you to cross over.

But hang on for a moment, Sebe will soon be here to provide you with a retort to justify your massive amount of misconceptions.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013 at 11:57 AM

TOT is precisely correct. This is something that it has been shown that the Obama administration KNEW about three years ago, and chose to ignore it for reasons only they know. It was either incompetence or by design - but either way a large portion of the insured will get screwed under Obamacare.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013 at 13:01 PM

See Tot, I was right.

However Sebe, the voters yesterday aren't buying what you and Tot are trying to sell.

My limited IQ drops 20 points every time I read anything TOT writes. Don't let the same thing happen to you, buddy.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013 at 15:37 PM

We are selling nothing. We are telling the truth.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013 at 16:12 PM

Well, my friend, I have my reservations towards anyone that claims they hold the key to the truth.

I dare not make such a claim.

However, I DO have an opinion.
