“My kid has cancer and ObamaCare is making everything worse” – crushing premiums, no pediatric cancer care, insurers disappearing mid-year, what a mess (see video here)

The headline for this story should have been: “Obamacare Prices Going Up in Parts of Illinois”.  Check way down in the article and you’ll see what I’m talking about. #WheresMy2500

Yet another study shows emergency room use going UP, not down, under Obamacare.  Obamacare increases demand for doctors, but supply did not go up in rural areas. #TheyWereWrongAboutEverything

Another problem Obamacare didn’t fix – catastrophically high medical expenses: high premiums and out-of-pocket costs a factor.  Doctor surprised, but he shouldn’t be, that Obamacare didn’t live up to its promises. #WeToldYouSo

Obamacare’s Cycle of Doom (is there anything to like about this stupid law?):

  • The old system would charge you more if you had major medical problems. But it was still cheaper than the cost of health insurance today. We have more “coverage,” but narrow networks. More than 90% of National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers are out of network for some or all health exchange carriers in their state.  The Affordable Care Act is on track to cost taxpayers $1.8 trillion over the next decade, much of that going to pay insurance companies for healthy enrollees who need massive subsidies to afford the coverage that the ACA made much more expensive. The only winners from ACA are health insurers. They raise their rates every year, and more and more people who are forced to pay for others who don’t have to are dropping out, creating an endless cycle of cost increases.
