Don’t be misled by false news reports.
Your family’s future health depends on a repeal and replace of Obamacare.
Health care in America is falling apart, thanks to the deeply flawed “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”
There are 3 devastating dangers associated with keeping Obamacare: Rising premiums, health insurers dropping out of exchanges, and projected low enrollment figures.
- Get Ready for Skyrocketing Premiums
- Some are paying more for health insurance than their mortgage.
- Deductions are going up.
- Care is going down.
- Medicaid is falling apart and being abused.
- Taxes are creating loss of potential jobs.
- New market-driven technology is crushed.
- Lack of free choice and new choices are contrary to freedom and a free society.
Take the case of small business owner Dan Withrow of DSS Distribution Group in Kentucky.
“I’ve seen premium hikes of 30, 40 and 50 percent, and I have to absorb these costs to keep qualified employees. I put in 100-hour work weeks to generate income to pay for this. We really need competition to drive down costs. Small businesses are hurting big time.”
One couple called their broker to complain their health insurance was $1,300 a month.
“When your health insurance is bigger than your mortgage, something is wrong,” said the broker, Bob Garrison of Denton, Texas.
Health care consultants Avalere say premiums for “silver” plans, the most popular, are rising 18 percent next year. That’s after a 12 percent increase this year.
It gets worse, depending where you live.
Here are some price hikes exchange insurers are asking for in 2018:
- California: Proposed rates submitted by insurers are not publicly available. The rate hike for 2017 was 13.2 percent.
- Maryland, 45 percent.
- Virginia, 31 percent.
- Connecticut, 24 percent.
- Oregon, 7 of 8 insurers have asked for double-digit increases.
To show you how bad this is, a recent report from the Department of Health and Human services found the average 2017 premiums on the HealthCare.gov federal exchange were 105 percent higher that individual market rates in 2013 before Obamacare.
Did you get that? A whopping 105 percent increase.
Despite promises that Obamacare would cut a family’s premium by $2,500 a year, average premiums more than doubled. Some states saw premiums triple in cost.
In 2013, the average monthly premium was $224. By 2017 it doubled to $476.
- Get Ready for More Health Insurers to Drop Out of Exchanges
In the Obamacare exchanges, more than one in five customers had only a single insurer to choose from this year. And this is exploding.
Earlier this year, Humana announced it would stop selling coverage on Obamacare’s online marketplaces in 2018.
Health-insurer Aetna followed suit in May, citing expected losses of $200 million this year.
Aetna claims it has lost $700 million on the exchanges between 2014 and 2016.
- Get Ready for Fewer Enrollees into Obamacare
And the Congressional Budget Office’s projections have been so wrong.
Projected enrollments, which would help fund the Affordable Care Act, always miss the mark.
It was estimated in 2010 that 23 million Americans would be covered through the exchanges in 2017.
By 2016, after subpar annual enrollments, the Congressional Budget Office lowered its estimate this year to 15 million.
But only 12.2 million actually signed up for 2017, fewer than 2016.
Obamacare is dying.
Just look at this comparison.
Repeal and replace Obamacare for these reasons:
- Lower rates by competition
- Lower deductions, making care affordable
- Healthcare is individualized on your needs, not a bureaucrat
- Pleasant doctor care, not just a number in a machine
- Quick appointments, not group waiting
- Personal choices for insurance, not one-size-fits-all
- Stop forcing people to pay for abortion
- Care based on need
- Millions keep or get better insurance
Keep Obamacare if you want:
- Higher double-digit rates on premiums that continue to climb
- Higher deductions, making insurance useless
- Healthcare focused on bureaucrats and the big health industry
- Impersonal care
- Rationed care
- Longer and longer appointment times
- No or little choice
- Allow people to choose non-abortion policies
- Care based on review panels
- Millions kicked off plans as providers dwindle
