There's also the iMove option, where you can find another country to live
to escape the onerous penalties and premiums associated with Obamacare.As an upper-middle class high-tech worker, I don't have any access to
government subsidies, but could not afford to fit the increased 2014 Obamacare
costs which would rise from $300 per month to $1500 per month for a plan with
high deductibles and out-of-pocket costs. According to several
Insurance company executives, the premiums could double or triple next year,
which begs the question of would the government have to increase the subsidy to
still allow lower-income people to pay only $200 per month (and how much would
taxes increase to pay for the extra subsidy). In the meantime, those asked top
pay higher taxes would be expected to pay $3000 or $4500 per month for the same
crummy plans. At that point it would be much cheaper to re-locate south of the
border to avoid this ridiculousness.
America has been lied to and sold a bill of goods. Funny how it
"conveniently" keeps getting delayed until after elections... If
it's so good as they claim, why not rush to get it fully implemented?
"With health law, workers ponder the I-Quit option"And how
can that possibly be regarded as a bad thing, especially by Right Wingers who
claim to be all for individual freedom?People are no longer
compelled to enslave themselves to a job they hate just to get affordable
health insurance for themselves and their families.And yet many
Right Wingers apparently feel that an employee exercising his RIGHT to quit is
doing something absolutely horrible, unimaginable, and un-American.Apparently in the minds of a certain element, it is the DUTY of every
American, not born wealthy like a Romney, to be enslaved to a job he hates . . .
especially if it helps enrich the already wealthy. Ah these freedom-loving
"Conservatives" are an inspiration to all Americans.Mr. Viva
la Migra - Your "iMove" suggestion is excellent.
I think it's been about 30 years since I had health insurance, HMO has been
the coverage. You know the drill pre-approval if they will repair a torn
Sadly to the Tea party extremists...The Affordable Care Act is working quite
well. More than 5 million Americans have health insurance that the Republicans
never had a plan for. The plan offers those of us who wish to pursue careers
outside of the Corporate world the chance to have affordable insurance. Even
the Koch Bothers ads are being proven to be lies. Just because you say it
enough doesn't make it true.The ACA has been a great success in
spite of the nasty things that the Republicans have tried to do the thwart it.
The I-Quit option imposes the "I-Pay" option on those like me who have
to pay for tax credits received Mr./Ms. I-Quit.Tax credits for
health insurance is not free... someone pays.... someone always pays.
Howard S. Yes someone does pay. But who pays for the millions of uninsured
that use emergency rooms to get health care? At least with ACA that
is similar to Romney Care in Massachusetts people are getting health care using
private insurance companies that provide care.
