Via V. Saxena:
For the first time in American history, healthcare insurance has become too expensive to either buy or not buy, thus leaving many of us in quite the precarious financial dilemma, all courtesy the biggest scam ever pulled on the American people: Obamacare.
CNBC explained that the penalty for not purchasing healthcare insurance for 2016 will cost us an average of $738 to $1,450, depending on our income levels.
Those are just the expected averages, however. According to the actual Obamacare website, the penalty will be either 2.5 percent of our income or $695 per adult and $347.50 per child, to a maximum of $2,085, depending on which value comes out highest.
So if you wind up making $75,000 this year, for instance, and refrain from purchasing healthcare insurance, you will pay a penalty of $1,875, which is 2.5 percent of $75,000.
Likewise, those of you who do opt for health insurance will wind up paying significantly higher premiums coupled with higher deductibles and higher co-pays:
“How high?” you ask. I myself must pay about $3,000 a year for a plan with a $6,000 deductible and zero co-pays prior to the deductible being met. Yayyyy me …
So basically, regardless of whether we opt for insurance or not, we are slated to lose big time.
But we are not the only ones destined to lose. According to a report published by The Daily Signal several months prior, “Obamacare co-ops are failing at a rate of 50 percent” due to an inability to bring in more money than they pay out.
Like Cain TV contributor Dan Calabrese pointed out, “(T)he product is more expensive than ever, harder to buy than ever, and offers less value than ever.”
“Why would anyone buy it?” he then asked:
Oh. Right. The penalty. First the government takes over health insurance and ruins it, then tries to force you to buy it anyway by taking your money from you anyway if you don’t.
Yep. As far as I can tell, it’s nothing but a scam … one that’s being perpetrated on us, the American people!
