I often don't know if I should laugh or cry over the ignorance of the left. They never do their due diligence on anything. That's how we got the ACA. They had to pass the bill to find out what's in it.
Does anyone on the left realize that while ALL insurance plans are subject to the laws set forth in the ACA, not everyone is eligible for the plans on the exchanges? Not that we want them. I looked at the NC exchange through BCBS and the plans all cost more, cover less and none cover the boys' specialists out of state.
So, as of now, we are not eligible for any plan on the Obamacare exchanges. We have employer benefits and that disqualifies us. If the plans were actually more affordable than our current plan, we wouldn't be living in fear of being dumped to the exchanges. If these plans covered what our current plan covers and let us keep their current doctors, we wouldn't fear being dumped to the exchanges.
When the left has no facts, all they can do is name call and attack. Sadly, they don't want to face the truth that kids like mine lose access to life-saving treatments if dumped to the Obamacare exchanges. People with Shwachman-Diamond don't do well if they have to go to bone marrow transplant at a regular transplant center. Survival is 50%. If they can go to a place like Cincinnati Children's or Seattle Children's, they have over a 90% chance of survival. If we are dumped to the exchanges, my children can no longer see their specialists out of state and can't go to transplant at these two places.
My opposing the ACA has nothing to do with disliking Obama. I dislike the law and I vehemently oppose his policies. His policies are responsible for destroying my family's finances. If Obama's namesake had actually saved our family the $2500 per year on insurance premiums he promised every Anerican family would save, I'd be singing the praises of the law. If it had decreased our costs instead of exponentially increasing them, I'd be admitting that. I have receipts/invoices on my blog for the world to see. The left ignores them or blames everything other than the law.
Copays stayed the same for 6 years....the law passes and the copays skyrocket. Premiums, deductibles and out of pocket maxes that had only slightly increased in 6 years suddenly skyrocket after the law starts being implemented. But our increased costs have nothing to do with the law!? Right.
Repeatedly calling me a liar doesn't make it true. :/
