Really, really big. Especially for the low-level morons who supported the empty-suit's re-election and who, the fickle finger of fate have fucked, now find themselves under that simple moron's insurance steam roller.
There's a certain level of both irony AND karma in this: those who supported him the most being among those getting screwed the most.
Had a platoon sergeant back in the day... a warrior of some repute... who used to tell us that "if you're looking for sympathy, it's in the dictionary between shit and syphilis."
They're getting jacked for roughly $700 a month more than it was for this 60 year old couple.
Good. They should be... and the whole world should know about it.
Someone smarter than I once opined that you should be careful what you wish for... because you just... might... get... it.
It's kind of like watching "The Liar" get hit with a TriMet light rail car. That's about what he deserves, karmically speaking, if he can sober up enough to walk.
Maybe he can change places with Toronto's crack-smoking mayor... their mentality is the same.
But these people are a piece of work. Confronted with the reality of getting run over with the steam-roller they helped to build, these idiots still support the stupidity of this program.
The chickens are coming home to roost for supporters of Barack Obama in classic fashion: one San Francisco couple that donated to Organizing for America and worked the phone banks to ensure Barack Obama’s reelection has found that they are far worse off because of ObamaCare than they were beforeArchitect Lee Hammack, 60, and his wife, JoEllen Brothers, 59, are self-called “cradle Democrats.” They have been covered by Kaiser Permanente for health insurance since 1995. Brothers even worked for Kaiser as a dietitian and diabetes educator until 2009. Hammack said they were excellent candidates for the insurance company, stating, “We’ve both been in very good health all of our lives – exercise, don’t smoke, drink lightly, healthy weight, no health issues, and so on.”
The couple was paying $550 a month for their health coverage, but recently they were informed by Kaiser that their plan would be canceled by the end of 2013 because the plan couldn’t meet the standards of ObamaCare.
Hammack said, “From all of the sob stories I’ve heard and read, ours is the most extreme.” Health care reporter Charles Ornstein of ProPublica took a look at the couple’s coverage and found their plan was a good one; any new plan would be more expensive with less benefits, and the couple didn’t qualify for federal subsidies because their income was more than quadruple the federal poverty level.
Hammack related the couple’s reaction when they were informed their coverage would be stripped from them: “I work downstairs and my wife had a clear look of shock on her face. Our first reaction was clearly there’s got to be some mistake. This was before the exchanges opened up. We quickly calmed down. We were confident that this would all be straightened out. But it wasn’t.”More:
