"No Cost" ObozoPlan. Unicorns, Too!!

We've mentioned that the stench is beginning to emerge from the ObozoCare sewer.  Here's a bit more.

President Obama’s health care overhaul contains a tax that will drive up premiums for individuals, families, and even Medicare Advantage beneficiaries, according to a new study released by America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP).

Obamacare “imposes a new sales tax on health insurance that starts at $8 billion in 2014, increase to $14.3 billion in 2018, and will continue to increase each year,”...

...individuals buying insurance outside a company policy will pay an extra $2,171 over 10 years, or $5,140 over ten years if they buy a family plan. Employees at small businesses that do not self-insure will see their premiums rise $2,794 for individual plans and $6,883 for family policies....

And of course, Obozo smacks the elderly around, too!!

...AHIP expects Medicare Advantage premiums to rise by $3,604 over ten years. Why? “[F]or each dollar paid in taxes, an additional $1.54 in premiums must be collected,” the study suggests.

 Remember when the SockPuppet brigade told you that 'because everyone is forced to participate, the prices will go down'?

They were idiots then.  Now they're idiots with a lot less money, too.

My family's insurance premiums went up a hell of a lot more than $5,140 in the last 10 years.

The Health Insurance Tax is not a sales tax. It is an excise tax on insurers. They are free to pass the cost to their insured if the market allows them.

I find it fascinating that some people object to the government finding ways to pay for services and benefits that its constituents want.
