Rather than just repeat the government lie about health insurance costing less and more people having it under Obamacare, it would be nice if your reporters worked a little to get more information (“Costs lower; more people covered,” Aug. 2).
I currently have a large deductible policy that I want to keep. It saves me about $8,000 a year in premiums. That pays for a lot of doctor visits, tests, food and whatever else I want. I still have insurance for major medical problems.
Under Obamacare only people under 30 can buy this type of policy. Because of my age I will not be able to keep my insurance. The cheapest Obamacare policy costs twice what my old one does. I won’t be able to afford health insurance, and I don’t qualify for the taxpayer-funded subsidy. The end result is that my costs will go up, and I will not have insurance because of Obamacare.
I believe a large number of people will have similar experiences, but the government and media won’t acknowledge this result of Obamacare. I recommend that everyone look into how this law will impact them and not blindly believe the government or The Spokesman-Review.
