There have been many articles out about prices not rising under The Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare Act.
Those assertions have been contradicted by the bills arriving higher insurance premiums in the mailboxes of many Americans, with seniors in Pennsylvania being hit especially hard to the point of being “shocked.”
“I was shocked,” replied Charles Stull, a 74-year-old retired teacher. “I’m thinking that I’m going to have to switch,” he told a reporter with the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.
He was hardly the only one expressing displeasure with ObamaCare.
Art Walker, another retiree, stated that, “I don’t want my options limited at my age.” Close to 80, Walker exclaimed that, “I don’t want to be limited where I can go for my doctors.”
The Affordable Care Act is bringing more in the way of costs and less in the way of choice for seniors in Pennsylvania.
It should not come as a surprise, however. ObamaCare aims to bring more health care to more people for less money. That is not going to happen. A study by Bloomberg Government has projected the first year cost of The Affordable Care Act to be around $100 billion. More than $2 billion of that alone has gone just to HealthCare.Gov, the beleaguered Federal Government website for ObamaCare. Billions and billions have been wasted, too. Jobs are being lost, with other workers suffering from reduced hours. There are even claims of outright fraud!
It should come as little wonder that a recent Associated Press poll found that only 30 percent of likely voters support The Affordable Care Act.
That has certainly shown up in recent elections where ObamaCare supporters have lost. Polls show that will likely happen in less than a month when Americans head to the polls for the mid-term Congressional elections on Tuesday November 4. Based on the responses, it is obvious which way many seniors in Pennsylvania will be voting.
