Valerie Jarrett: We’ve had less increase in premiums than ever in last 50 years

posted at 10:11 pm on March 24, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

Hm.

During Obama’s term, between 2009 to 2012, premiums have climbed $2,370 for the average family with an employer-provided plan – a rate faster than the during the previous four years under President George W. Bush, according to Kaiser.

Investor’s Business Daily’s John Merline was first to note the difference in premiums climbing faster under Obama than the previous four years under Bush.

Hm.

Health insurance companies across the country are seeking and winning double-digit increases in premiums for some customers, even though one of the biggest objectives of the Obama administration’s health care law was to stem the rapid rise in insurance costs for consumers.

And, let’s review the promise, once again:

“I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”

The insurance companies met with Obama, told them what they needed to get this done and Obama said, “Fine”. Then he told the Democrats in Congress what he needed for a bill and they said,”Fine” They passed the bill and the American people looked at it and said, “WTF.”

*******************************

Staffers: AP’s health care proposals would really hurt us
Posted on Jan 21, 2014 Last Updated Jan 22, 2014 Posted by Linda Johnson
************************************************************************

News Media Guild members across the country are uniformly opposed to AP’s health care proposals, which would cost many staffers far more than they could afford and effectively slash their income.

People would be hurt financially whether they are healthy, have a complex chronic illness, need surgery, are seriously injured or have a baby. Guild members are speaking out about how much they would be hit:
**********************************************************************

I have a rare cancer. I’ve had two major surgeries in the past two years. I’ll probably have more surgeries and possibly chemotherapy. My out-of-pocket costs for previous surgeries under the current AP health care plan amounted to probably less than $1,000. Now, I think it’s pretty likely I’ll reach the $4,800 ceiling for maximum out-of-pocket treatment expenses under the family plan this year if AP’s health care proposal stands. My two sons are on the family plan with me. One takes a medication that currently costs us $192 a year. Under AP’s proposal, that would increase to $698. The bottom line:

I see our out-of-pocket health care costs/premiums going up around $6,000 or more this year. And that’s if I stay entirely with in-network providers. I’m 57 and I’ve been healthy all my life until now. Now, when I most need insurance, I would have the worst coverage of my life under AP’s proposal. JOAN LOWY, WASHINGTON, D.C.

I have had a kidney transplant and have chronic, recurring autoimmune disease that attacks my new kidney. The new plan would cost me about $7,000 more a year if my treatment were to stay constant _ and more if new side effects occur and treatments are prescribed, which often occurs. MICHELLE MINKOFF, WASHINGTON, D.C.

My wife and I paid more than $1,000 in 2012 for the birth of our second child, and we would get hit much harder under the new plan, which would stress us financially. One of the biggest bills last year was the facility charge, for the use of the hospital. That totaled $9,414. Under our (basic) plan, we paid a $672 coinsurance payment, with the insurer picking up 90 percent of that bill after deducting the discount Aetna negotiated with the provider. Under the new plan, with the less-than-generous 75/25 percent coinsurance split AP’s proposing, my coinsurance payment would more than double to $1,679. That is just one of several bills you receive after having a kid. Having another baby will become a bit cost prohibitive, which is maybe what the company wants. TOM MURPHY, INDIANAPOLIS

I had a knee replacement done late last year. It cost me about $385 dollars: a $150 deductible, a $200 hospital copay and about $35 for prescriptions. The bill for doctor fees, hospital, in-home care and physical therapy _ but not pain meds _ to date is $74,774, although UHC paid at discounted rates. If I’d had this done under the health plan AP’s proposed, my potential exposure could be up to $11,350. I can really appreciate the statement, “Don’t get sick, but if you do, die quickly,” because if you live, you’ll be paying for a long time. GARY MORTLOCK, SPOKANE DATA CENTER

The health plan proposed by the AP in the current contract talks would cost me at least $2,800 in the first year and more in future years, not counting any new health issues that might come up. That’s because of expensive drugs I take to keep a muscle condition I have from getting worse. What’s far more troubling than this expense, which will wipe out any ability I have to save money, is the effect it will have on families with their pressed budgets and multiple, sometimes serious, health needs. For them, the costs of this plan could be financially crippling. WILL LESTER, WASHINGTON, D.C.

My family and I are basically healthy and fit, but under this proposed plan, I would be spending more than $17,500 a year in medical expenses within the next two years. This is untenable. MARTHA MENDOZA, SAN JOSE

My rough back-of-the envelope estimate of my cost increases under AP’s plan are dramatic since I get ostomy supplies every month and will for the rest of my life. I estimate my costs in 2013 at around $1,300. Under AP’s proposal, my costs _ including premium _ would rise to $3,500 in the first year and to $4,200 the year after _ AND that assumes medical costs remain the same, which they won’t. NORMA LOVE, CONCORD

Even though I am a very healthy person with no chronic health problems, my health care costs will more than quadruple in three years under the AP’s plan. This is unsettling. It means that I would pay much more for health insurance if this is approved. More importantly, it also makes me fearful of what would happen — and how much it would cost — if I become really sick or was injured. TAMARA LUSH, TAMPA
The AP plan would cut my salary by the $12,500 maximum, given that my wife is being treated for ovarian cancer. That is unacceptable. STEVEN HURST, WASHINGTON, D.C.

It’s great that we still have to pay trillions of dollars and die in the streets so we can rescue President Barack Obama’s nascent presidential authority and his agenda circa 2009, and allegedly minimize Democratic losses in 2010.

Seriously, that’s why Obamacare was passed, remember? They started talking about it in June and by the fall it became a political football divorced from policy. By the time it was passed the mantra was “pass anything and move on.”

Democrats hated it and still hate it except insofar as it kicks and stomps on the free market.

Why are we *still* being dragged along with this charade?

At least when we invaded Iraq, we got to kill Saddam Hussein and free the Iraqis from the people shredders. What does anyone gain from this bloody-minded boondoggle?

Spending, Prices, and Costs

NOTE: The facts below draw a distinction between healthcare spending, prices, and costs based upon the following definitions:

• “Spending” refers to what is spent on healthcare in general. Thus, if people use more healthcare services, this causes spending to increase even if prices remain the same.

• “Prices” refer to what healthcare providers charge for particular services and products.

• “Costs” refer to what healthcare providers spend in order to provide particular healthcare services and products to patients. This is equivalent to prices minus profits or losses.

* Between 1960 and 2009, healthcare spending in the United States increased:

• from a yearly average of $147 per person to $8,086 (by 55 times).

• from a yearly average of $1,082 per person in inflation-adjusted 2010 dollars to $8,218 (by 7.6 times).

• from 5.2% of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) to 17.8% (by 3.4 times).[1]

http://www.justfacts.com/images/healthcare/portion_of_GDP_spent_on_healthcare-full.PNG

[2]

* In 1942, the price for a maternity room at Christ Hospital in Jersey City, NJ was $7.00 per day.[3] Adjusting for inflation, this amounts to $97.29 in 2011 dollars.[4] In 2011, the price for a maternity room at the same hospital was $1,360 per day.[5]

* In 1980, the average price for a typical hospital room in the U.S. was $127 per day.[6] Adjusting for inflation, this amounts to $349 in 2011 dollars.[7]

* In 1988, Mutual of Omaha insurance company paid an average of $270 per day for all types of hospital rooms (such as medical/surgical, intensive care, maternity, etc.). Adjusting for inflation, this amounts to $518 in 2011 dollars.[8] [9] [10]

* In 2002, Mutual of Omaha paid an average of $748 per day for all types of hospital rooms. Adjusting for inflation, this amounts to $943 in 2011 dollars.[11] [12]

* A 2011 survey of eleven hospitals in Ohio (where state law requires hospitals to publish their prices) found that the daily price of a typical hospital room ranged from $688 to $2,425, with the average being $1,393 and the median $1,322.[13]

“Doublethink, the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. … To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies—all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.”

One must wonder now and then how and in what manner the Obamabots will wipe every bit of email data from every server connected with this fraud of an administration.
If collected and evaluated under legal parameters I suspect it could keep the next administration’s Attorney General busy for years to come. And to think the present day law school graduates think they’ll have nothing to do. Preposterous.
Of course for this to happen we’d have to have a completely new philosophical purpose for the Swine Stupid Media to bloom forth. I know … not gonna happen.

Valerie Jarrett: We’ve had less increase in premiums than ever in last 50 years

The American People haven’t been lied to that blatantly since Former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice told 5 Sunday Shows about a YouTube video causing the attack in Benghazi.

Both Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett lie much too easily.

The premiums on my grandfathered health insurance plan have TRIPLED since Obamacare passed and loaded my plan up with mandates that I did not want or need.

They really and simply think that the American populace is *so* abjectly mentally retarded that they can say anything, no matter how ridiculous, and most of the public will just believe it.

Sadly, they’re probably right.

Sorry to repeat myself here but…

Everything you’ve been told about ObamaCare has been a lie.
Not ONE THING has been true…NOT ONE!
They knew this would be a disaster and that’s why it’s ALL been, a will continue to be, One…Big…Lie…

Pelosi Schmelosi on March 25, 2014 at 12:03 AM

LIARS

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Joseph Goebbels

How many here have actually read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”? You know, one of BHO’s hero’s…

Who is this shadow woman to tell us anything? Was she elected? Was she vetted? She is a nobody. How dare she spin lies? Tell us Valerie is it true that you said “now its our turn” when the Obamanation was first sworn in? Who is the “our” you were referring to? Surely you don’t mean just blacks like yourself do you? Why that would be racist. Obamacare is an utter failure and your boy Barack will go down in history as the worst President ever foisted on the American public. His legacy will be Obamacare and its complete failure. Affirmative action Presidents and advisers don’t make for a strong America. FOAD Jarrett

The lies kinda fall flat when the average US household opens up their health insurance premium bill, and sees the cold hard facts hitting their bank account where it hurts.

Ahh, their sacrificial for the cause. No big deal, just a few million people.

Here’s a tally of the sacrificial for the cause:

Source: http://www.battleswarmblog.com/?p=1191

65 million in the People’s Republic of China
20 million in the Soviet Union
2 million in Cambodia
2 million in North Korea
1.7 million in Africa
1.5 million in Afghanistan
1 million in the Communist states of Eastern Europe
1 million in Vietnam
150,000 in Latin America
10,000 deaths “resulting from actions of the international communist movement and communist parties not in power.”

- Albert Einstein, Out Of My Later Years:
“One strength of the Communist system …is that it has some of the characteristics of a religion and inspires the emotions of a religion.”

Associated Press writers are stepping up their fight for affordable healthcare benefits and fair contracts by omitting bylines from their articles – @HuffPostMedia

How in the world does omitting their by-lines help in this fight??

CMIIW, but I suspect the majority of AP writers are (1) Democrats or Leftists; (2) Obama voters*; and (3) –former– PPACA supporters**.

“Obamacare for Thee, but not for Me”.
Someone ought to write a song….

*OK, this doesn’t mention AP specifically (neither do the rest, as they treat journalists as a generic commodity), but it’s hilarious.
