Obamacare hits California's middle class like a ton of bricks

Sometimes their is a certain "poetic justice" in seeing people suffer such as the people in California.  So many follow their blind liberal instincts and proudly support every liberal/progressive program with the misguided belief it won't cost them anything but provide them government largesse.  The middle class, who are the intended victims of Obamacare to begin with, are awakening in California to the realization they have been duped by the Obama, Pelosi, Feinstein, Boxer, and the rest of their "representatives" and this liberal healthcare utopia they thought they had is nothing more than the government reaching in their pockets to take money for illegal aliens and people who won't work.  AAAAHHH, the beauty of it all. :beer:

Obamacare hits California’s middle class like an earthquake

Yes, the plagued Obamacare web site cost taxpayers more than it cost to create Facebook and Twitter combined.

And yes, the task of building that website was contracted out to private companies, including Canadian firm CGI Federal, which has “a checkered history with other government contracts,” as Fox politely phrased it.

But when we look beyond the web site problems — as the mainstream media is finally starting to do — what we see is an “Affordable Care Act” that is simply not affordable.

This weekend, the Los Angeles Times ran a story about Jennifer Harris, a self-employed attorney in California who “has been paying $98 a month for an individual health insurance plan that provides less coverage than the Affordable Care Act requires. The cheapest alternative she’s found so far costs more than twice as much.”

Aside from her shiny new Obamacare plan costing her an expected $238 per month, she and her spouse “don’t qualify for federal premium subsidies because they earn too much money, about $80,000 a year combined.”

Beard of Zeus! $80,000 per year combined! In Orange County, no less! Such fat cat one-percenters like Harris (who is three months pregnant) and her husband should clearly shoulder the burden of providing “affordable” care to those without access to equally vast riches.

“It doesn’t seem right to make the middle class pay so much more in order to give health insurance to everybody else,” Harris told the Times.

I agree with her. Something is deeply wrong when a hard-working couple like the Harrises are considered wealthy elites.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
