  • Obamacare will allow insurers to charge 50 percent higher premiums for smokers, but prohibits insurers from increasing premiums for those with HIV/AIDS.

  • Nationally, Obamacare will increase men’s individual insurance premiums by an average of 99 percent and women’s by 62 percent. In North Carolina, for example, individual insurance premiums will triple for women and quadruple for men.
  • Health plans valued at $27,500 or more for a family of four will be taxed at a rate of 40 percent.
  • No doctors who went to an American medical school will be accepting Obamacare.
  • A 62-year-old man earning $46,000 a year is entitled to a $7,836 government tax credit to buy health insurance. But if he earns an extra $22 in income, he loses the entire $7,836 credit. He will have more take-home pay by earning $46,000 than if he earns $55,000. (If he’s lucky, he already works for one of the companies forced by Obamacare to reduce employees’ hours!)
  • Merely to be eligible for millions of dollars in grants from the federal government under Obamacare, education and training programs are required to meet racial, ethnic, gender, linguistic and sexual-orientation quotas. That’s going to make health care MUCH better!
  • Obamacare is turning America into a part-time nation. According to a recent report by economist John Lott, 97 percent of all jobs added to the economy so far this year have been part-time jobs. Ninety-seven percent!
  • Obamacare is such a disaster that the people who wrote it refuse to live under it themselves. That’s right, Congress won a waiver from Obamacare.

    I don't know but I may have accidentally posted this twice.  lol

    Can anyone spot the most outrageous lie that Ann came up with?  This kind of supposed journalism is the reason why the people of this country can't come together.

    All of them seem suspect or stretched. I have a hard time believing that no American educated doctors will accept "obamacare" whatever the hell that means.

    Obamacare isn't health insurance and she knows this so why is she spreading misinformation? Oh yeah I forgot, she works for fox.

    Exactly.  All of them are stretched if not purposefully misleading.

    But the comment that no American trained doctor would accept Obamacare?  What kind of BS is that anyway?  And why throw in "American trained"?

    Well, Fox and apparently gets some money from World Net Daily, too.  Which just proves her level of ethics in regards to journalism.  It's sad to find a media source less trustworthy than Fox although lately I haven't been impressed with any sources I have come accross other than NPR.

    Side note, I'm also interested in John Lott's report...everything I've seen has said 77%...where is he getting the extra 20%?

    I'm actually wondering though.  Did she mean that statement about no American Doctors accepting Obamacare as a joke?  If so, why include it in a list of supposed facts?  If questioned, I'm sure she would say it was a joke.  But in my opinion she put it in there to fool the conspiricy theorists who read WND in hopes it would take on a life of its own as a "factoid."  Something that "everyone knows" but when ask can only remember having read about it vaguely.
