Most of us some time in our career got the call to come to a meeting to be held by management that we know will not be good news. That feeling of dread that comes over us. None can be much worse than hearing that one’s healthcare coverage is going down the tubes. In a moving video, Lady Raven’s Whiskey Jar has a clip that will/should move even the heartless progressives who believe the problems with Obamacare are only “bumps in the road.” Here tis, coming to your company soon.
Pennsylvania small business Simonetta’s Collision Repair Center allowed a local news station to record their employees live reactions to learning about how ObamaCare has altered their health insurance.
The results are heart-breaking.
The employees soon learn that their premiums have skyrocketed by an average of 32%, a massive jump from last year’s relatively modest 6% increase. That’s not all. They also faced massive increases in their deductibles, ranging from 60% for some to as much as 100% for others.
Simonetta’s, a car repair business in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, is represented by Democrat Rep. Mike Doyle (PA-14).
“The deductible is terrible,” said one worker. “It’s going to be a pretty big hit in the pocket.”
“How are you going to do that?” one of them was asked. “I don’t know,” she responded. “I don’t know how President Obama thinks that he is helping us.”
“They call it the affordable health plan? There’s nothing affordable about it,” another said. “Wake up America. This isn’t acceptable.”
Talk about elections having consequences; imagine this scene is taking place throughout the United States in the private business sector. Families forced to choose between meals, rent, house payments, etc. or health insurance premiums, co-payments and deductibles for substandard medical care.
