THE REAL OBAMACARE DEATH SPIRAL [16.04.23]

Stop this train wreck – I wanna get off! The news about ‪#‎Obamacareinsurance just keeps getting worse – insurers leaving, huge rate increases and narrower networks coming. But here’s the real #Obamacare death spiral – tax credits go up with premiums. This is crazy. The national debt is already $19.2 trillion. Every cent put to Obamacare subsidies is borrowed. How can we keep doing this? We can keep throwing more and more money at the bottomless pit of Big Government, Big Insurance, and Big Healthcare, or change course and move in the direction of simplicity, catastrophic insurance, and patient-centered reform. ‪#‎WrongDirection

Federal spending on major health programs (Medicaid, Medicare, ‪#‎ACA) now bigger than Social Security

#ACA ‪#‎crony Tavenner says #Obamacare market not stabilizing, rates will go up more next year than last

#ACA ‘stability’ can only be purchased at price of repeated rate hikes, narrower networks and higher out-of-pocket.

“Who is going to pay these ever higher full costs for the consumers who get subsidies? The health insurance fairy?”

“only one solution to the nasty mess of government-run health care and entitlements: get the government out of it.”

Healthcare costs were rising 2.6% faster than inflation, but now it’s 3.3%. Masterminds? Master con artists is more like it.

The money for Medicaid expansion is all borrowed. What do we think we’re doing?

“It’s official. The Obamacare insurance company business model does not work.”

“Why is this happening? Because nowhere near enough healthy people are signing up to pay for the sick.”

#OBAMACARE MISSES ESTIMATE FOR PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE BY ONLY 24 MILLION PEOPLE.

–Fewer people have private health insurance than the CBO estimated would have private health insurance without Obamacare by 9 million.
–But not to worry, 2X more than estimated are on taxpayer paid for health insurance, Medicaid and CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program).

“In 2013, the CBO projected that, without Obamacare, 186 million people would be covered by private health insurance in 2016—160 million on employer-based plans, 26 million on individually purchased plans. The CBO now says that, with Obamacare, 177 million people will be covered by private health insurance in 2016—155 million on employer-based plans, 12 million on plans bought through Obamacare’s government-run exchanges, and 9 million on other individually purchased plans (plus a rounding error of 1 million).

In other words, it would appear that a net 9 million people have lost their private health plans, thanks to Obamacare—with a net 5 million people having lost employer-based plans and a net 4 million people having lost individually purchased plans.

None of this is to say that fewer people have “coverage” under Obamacare—it’s just not private coverage. In 2013, the CBO projected that 34 million people would be on Medicaid or CHIP (the Children’s Health Insurance Program) in 2016. The CBO now says that 68 million people will be on Medicaid or CHIP in 2016—double its earlier estimate. It turns out that Obamacare is pretty much a giant Medicaid expansion.”
