The 'select plans' are basically extended Medicaid. So if you were working your ass off so your family can have insurance, it's going to be taken away from you and inflated to a monthly premium that's completely out of your financial range. As a consolation prize, your employer will offer you Marketplace Insurance, or you can buy it yourself and have it subsidized by the government. Either way, its just Medicaid under a different name. Unfortunately for you, doctors aren't legally required to accept Medicaid, and since they only pay pennies on the dollar, it's hard to find a physician if you're not a child or a pregnant adult.
DH and I are both employed at seperate small businesses with around 75-100 employees each. People at my job are having their hours cut back by 10-12 hours a week to have LESS full time employees and DH's company is starting to lay off 20 part time employees so they can have MORE full time employees. We are waiting on pins and needles to see if DH (who works 30-35 hours a week) will be one of those layed off, as he's only been there for four years and doesn't have alot of seniority.
I'm really upset. We are not well off. We live a modest life that we make comfortable by working our asses off. Now we're losing our insurance, possibly losing a job and being forced by the government to take some bullshit subsidy for some bullshit insurance that we really don't want. This is the absolute antithesis of the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the persuit of happiness. This isn't going to even any playing field in health care. It's only going to aggravate class struggle and further widen the chasm between upper and lower classes.
So, fuck you Obamacare. And fuck ALL of you who support this socialist bullshit.
