"Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters said Tuesday the government omitted a window-shopping function because officials first wanted consumers to know the amount of the subsidy they might be eligible for. Those income-based tax credits can dramatically reduce premiums for people with modest incomes, and personal financial information is needed to calculate the subsidies."
“Our process allows us to show consumers plans with prices that reflect what they will pay with the tax credit they may be eligible for,” Peters said. “Window shopping would not allow for this.” —Associated Press
Public recriminations continue as the American people “suddenly” realize that Barack Obama has done little else but lie to them for the past six years. They idiotically put him into office, and then, if that treason was not bad enough, reelected him. It is nothing if not mind-bending. In this latest iteration of incompetence and lies, websites not only perplex those who want to know the true costs, but people are finding out that the actual costs of the ACA will increase, not decrease their health care costs.
The Obama administration has attempted to be far too cute about shielding the truth. For example, consumers are unable to window shop for insurance plans because this information is not available until one first provides all personal data. By the way, inputting this information in its entirety will allow the government to fine you later should you ultimately decide not to enroll. I find it stunning that the American people have figured this out long before the realized what a lying fraud Obama is … but that is a topic for the future.
The scheme to defraud the American people is worthy of beltway politics, however, and it matches almost precisely the rhetoric offered to us by the DC Madame, Nancy Pelosi: “But we have to pass the bill so that you can uh … find out what’s in it.” Remember that whatever the government gives (health care subsidy), it can take away.
In 2008, Barack Obama promised that his health care plan would lower insurance premiums by $2,500 per family. As it turns out, this might be true (emphasis added for effect) if (a) one qualifies for a government subsidy, and/or (b) one continues to qualify for a government subsidy in the future. On the other hand, if one does not qualify for the subsidy, his or her health care insurance premium is increasing as much as three times. We should wonder about the kind of American that is fine with allowing the entire country to pay for his or her health insurance subsidy.
Finally, we find ourselves confronting with this unalterable fact: the glitch everyone is stalking about is an intentional ploy by the Obama administration to hide its broken promise to the American people. The light may be coming on because it seems that most Americans are no longer accepting the Obama shell game. Maybe there is some hope yet ... without the change.
