WHAT DOES ONE DO WHEN YOU'RE A RICH LIBERAL OBAMA SUPPORTER WHOSE INSURANCE GETS CANCELLED & THE REPLACEMENT/EXCHANGE OFFERS YOU LESS COVERAGE WITH HIGHER DEDUCTIBLES FOR MORE MONEY?


1. You make too much money to get a subsidy.

2. Even though you "support" Obamacare and are an Obama sycophant YOU don't want to have to pay for it out of your own pocket.

3. You can't just get a "waiver" since you don't belong to a union or special interest group - plus there are hundreds of thousands of people in your state with the same problems.

What do you do?

Well ... if you're like San Francisco arhitect Lee Hammack and his wife JoEllen Brothers you appeal to your local politicians for "help" and consider "reducing your income" so you can get a subsidy and have your neighbors foot the bill.

That old "crap" plan they had with Kaiser carried a $4,000 deductible per person, $40 co-pay for doctor visits, $150 emergency room vfee and 30 percent coinsurance for hospital stays after the deductible. The out-of-pocket maximum was $5,600.

It cost the couple $550 a month.

The "improved" ObamaCare plan cost $1,300 a month for the two of them.

It has a higher deductible ($4,500), a higher out-of-pocket maximum ($6,350), higher hospital costs (40 percent of the cost) and possibly higher costs for doctor visits and drugs.

They've been "shopping around" as Obama suggested with not much better being offered.
And so they're looking for "help". They make too much money to get a break but don't think they should be required to pay for the policies they supported.

You can read the details of their dilemma here:

Oh, they might consider getting a divorce too. I think married people pay through the nose. Kind of diabolical, don't you think? Govertnment destroying healthcare, the private sector and the institution of marriage and the family through the vote of one Congress?

My heart really goes out to them ... doesn't yours?

I mean - liberals lying to liberals and the aftermath ... didn't someone say days like this would be coming? ;-)

Ah Obamacare ... liberalism ... the Democrat Party ... redistribution of wealth ... progressives ... the entitlement class ... ruling elites and utopian masterminds - what a DISASTER!

It is kinda funny - ain't it?

One prediction about Obama's presidency has been well borne out -- lots of schadenfreude.

Well, I wouldn't call this schadenfreude. Close - but no cigar.

People who take gleeful delight in the troubles of others, even undeserved, have defects in their character - like those who find happiness when others fail or experience tragedy.

Simply observing and documenting how the plots and schemes of tyrants, troublemakers, enablers and masterminds blow up in their faces (as well as ours) is simply what I would call noting people getting their "just deserts".


"Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good
of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live
under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may
at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good
will torment us without end for they do so with the approval
of their own conscience."
- C.S. Lewis
