I just read an article that made me laugh so hard I cried. Obama voters in California complaining about their insurance premiums skyrocketing had this to say about Republicans:
"I was laughing at Boehner
-- until the mail came today," Waschura said, referring to House Speaker
John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.
really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can
understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out
of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or
retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."
Priceless! It Gets Better.....
But, the best line from the article is: "Of course, I want people to
have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the
one who was going to pay for it personally."
I can't stop laughing.
Here's why they are pissed according to the article: "Cindy
Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act.
They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and
re-elect President Barack Obama.
Yet, like many other Bay Area
residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored
last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being
replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the
new health care law.Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a
year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will
cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four."
