Harry Reid Pays $4500 MORE Under ObamaCare
"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."

I posted this one under "Humor/Jokes" but it is NO joke. Harry Reid recently said in an interview that his insurance premiums went up $4500 under ObamaCare. Should we believe him? In this case, I think we should - since this is obviously NOT the kind of “good news” that would ever be put out by the Democrat spin machine. But it IS great news for those of us who have been standing up for the requirement that the people who foisted ObamaCare on the country also be at its mercy.

See: http://www.rgj.com/article/20131206/NEWS19/312060025/Nevada-s-Harry-Reid-CNN-wrong-health-care-report

But let’s examine what Reid attributes his insurance premium increase to. He says it was “age-related” - i.e., he now has to pay more just because he’s older. He also says “it wasn’t like that before.” So let me get this straight:

An outcome of ObamaCare is that older people pay more – even in Reid’s case, a LOT MORE – simply because they’re “older?” He also says that matter-of-factly – as if that’s we way it’s supposed to be, and that everybody knows it/should know it/knew it before.

Sierra-Oscar-A-Bravo. Every day there’s a new ObamaCare revelation. Every day there’s a new government rip-off for “the rest of us.” Now – BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE - the “older” get to pay more than they already had to simply because they’re not young.

Those of you who voted Democrat in the last election should be ashamed of yourselves.

Chief, what’s even more shameful is that $5M insurance plans have been cancelled because of Obamacare. This number alone has affected at least 10-15M individuals alone with even more cancellations to come next year once the employer mandate kicks in.

he said it was because of his age, so it might be true. but he also gets 75% of it subsidized. i guess he forgot that got out to the public a few weeks ago. so basically a older person can look forward to paying $4,500 more a year on their unchanging income.

I think you can only get subsidized if your income meets certain parameters, no? Or is it a subsidy he gets from being a senator? My point here is that Reid ought to have had his premiums increased - just like more than 100 million Americans are eventually going to have their premiums increased - just because of ObamaCare. When the employer mandate fully kicks in and the insurance companies sort it all out, everything goes up for taxpayers and for the insured who have to "subsidize" the system due to its very structure.

There were foreseeable consequences that those who devised this legislation foresaw. Those consequences are now starting to come to pass. This is no surprise to those people. The only people who are surprised are those who bought the B.S. they were selling, and who are now finding out that they are ObamaCare "losers." The light bulb will go on for more than half the country when the small and large business insurance increases/terminations/cut-backs kick-in next year.

...and the answer is here:


As pointed out in the above:

"All top congressional leaders -- Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) -- and their leadership deputies will receive coverage through the District's exchange, known as DC Health Link."


"....(in) the District's new health-care exchange (they can) continue receiving their taxpayer-funded employer contribution."

So even though Reid's premiums go up, who pays? WE THE PEOPLE - THAT'S WHO - THROUGH OUR TAX DOLLARS!

My understanding is that a Republican bill which would have eliminated the government subsidy and made Congress live by the same rules as to income and "health exchanges" as the rest of us was voted down. I'll give you three guesses who spearheaded the nay votes and the first two don't count. IMHO - they ALL should be forced to play the game that every other citizen in this country plays - ESPECIALLY THE DEMOCRATS.
