oe Biden is flailing in the polls, trailing President Trump in all the swing states, and likely to lose in November. Inflation, illegals, crime and wokesterism are among the best-known reasons for the shift. But how many are aware that the nightmare of Obamacare is still with us, too, and likely driving Biden's poll numbers down? VOTER: I thought I would share why I am no longer a Democrat... I was a two-time bone cancer survivor, still am. That's how I lost my arm. Having healthcare was extremely important to me. I heard all the talking points of "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,"


Take the time to watch this guy's video, and send it to friends. He is a very lucid, sensible speaker, and he's right. One of the best 'average guy' video's you'll ever see.

My husband and I went through the exact same thing. My $400 work insurance was canceled and replaced with an $800 a month premium. So I went to an obamacare website. Our "new and improved" policy was $1600 a month with a deductible of $12,000. If I could not afford my work insurance I sure couldn't afford obamacare so we went without insurance for 4 years. We paid for anything we needed with cash. We paid for everything with no help from a government agency. But were penalized every year because we did not carry insurance. The only way the government could collect that money was through the confiscation of a tax return. We adjusted our withholding so that we would never get a refund. It's been over 10 years since we haven't received one. For some reason it worked out this year we actually got a refund. And they will "steal" our money from us. Time to readjust. Thanks to the SOCTUS the only way they can collect is through tax refund returns. It had been through any means necessary. Suing you, property confiscations, garnishment of wages, bank accounts etc. We get a letter twice a year telling us what we owe them and a little reminded what leeches we were to not go along with their sham. Bad, bad Americans. FJB PS Paying cash was not a problem and the doctor office was quite happy about it. My office visits went down $100 a visit because I saw the doctor, pay the fee, case close. They did not have to mess with insurance company.

I own a small business. We pay 100% of the premiums for our employees high-deductible insurance policies. Health insurance 5X costs more than all other expenses, except payroll, put together: rent, vehicles, inventory, equipment, all other insurance, everything. It's absurd.

Cost of insurance is horrible. Big thing for me is the quality of care. There has been a big change. We no longer see a doctor for what ails you but someone without a degree micromanaging you and deciding which specialist to send you to find out next specialist to send you to so on and so forth until you outlive or die from reason you went. Also over prescription of pills that do not work well together

In the summer of 2013, I tried to get a quotation from my health care provider for an Obamacare complaint policy after my retirement, plannded for late 2013. They said no information was available yet. In September, same put off. Finally after having talked to the same representative many times, in October she gave me some quotations. HORRIBLY high, like $1900 a month for the two of us, with $6,000 deductible. I finally told her that I would have to go without insurance, and she said "You can't do that", I told her I had no choice, and goodbye, unless there was something more affordable. She finally, under duress, said, "Well, there IS a non-compliant plan for $600 a month, but you may not be able to renew". I took it, and kept that plan for 3 years until I went on medicare. If I had been forced to use Obamacare, we'd have paid $22,800 per year, and get two doc visits paid for. Until we racked up another $6,000, so a total of $28,800 the insurance would pay NOTHING. Horrible rip off, evil deal.

I don't know anyone whose insurance hasn't doubled or even tripled in cost in the past decade.... and often for worse coverage and higher deductibles. I have long said we need to go back to a cash pay system with safety nets for the deserving poor and a universal catastrophic policy for the really big stuff. We have become to hooked like druggies on insurance and it has driven up costs and driven down quality in the same way the loan industry and education industrial complex has ruined university education. Middle managers control it all because they drive profits. They control who gets paid, how they get paid, what they get paid, when they get paid... and they surely control whether or not you the patient get care. The patient is NOT the doctor's customer because the patient has so little control over the doctor's paycheck. The insurance company is the customer. We, my friend, and our employers are just pawns who in the end write the checks for the money the insurance company decides to spend or not for our care.

Did/do the Republicans know something that the man in the video didn't know? (He asked that question). I don't know what all Republicans knew, but I knew and still know: The purpose of Obamacare was to destroy the private health insurance option and force every person into the US into Medicaid-type government medical treatment. Covid vax requirements and punishments for refusal to comply is the exemplar of what the effects of such a national "health service" would be like. Meanwhile, the elites (as one poster on AT points out) would have the only top-tier plans. Reliance on government to supply medical treatment in Germany started under Bismarck in 1883. 50 years later doctors were loading mentally impaired children onto buses to go to gas chambers. Meanwhile, in addition to undermining individual morality. Obamacare is essential to the Cloward-Piven strategy. The C-S strategy aimed to overload the welfare system in order to implement a "redistribution of income" through chaos and unrest, especially among the poor and expanding throughout the country. See San Francisco, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, etc., etc...

The Biden administration can figure out how to give free food, housing, education and medical care to illegal aliens and terrorists, but our own citizens can't access that special treatment for themselves or their families. We just get the bills. Why so many Americans accept this shoddy treatment from Democrats is puzzling. As citizens, we all deserve better. Four years of being treated as second class citizens on our own soil ought to be enough for just about everyone. It's especially insulting when illegals show so little gratitude. Those who arrive here illegally with a giant sense of entitlement will not go on to become good citizens. They are criminals who, but for Joe Biden, wouldn't be on our soil.

Seems to me that the main purpose of Obamacare was to force working people to pay for the healthcare of deadbeats because it wasn't "fair" that they could not afford good care. That's why premiums doubled, so you could pay for somebody else you didn't even know and that person would naturally be a democrat voter. Obama is a full-blown, anti-American, anti-White communist.

The current status of the New York civil fraud case that New York Attorney Letitia James filed against Donald Trump, and that resulted in a huge ruling against him, thanks to Judge Arthur Engoron, is just a little bit of a puzzle. In the short term, Trump is on defense, but the wheels of justice should turn and place him on offense. Understanding that requires us to look at the logic of the law, a subject at once fascinating and exacting and, sometimes, very surprising. The role of logic in law is one of the features of the law that most non-lawyers misunderstand.

When a future administration someday deals sternly with this nation-dividing issue of illegal immigration, they’ll need to begin by removing the job thieves imported here by cartels from South America and elsewhere. They’ll also have to heavily fine, if not bankrupt, some of the companies hiring these illegals. They must start the deportations with construction workers here illegally in the U.S. According to conservative estimates, 25-30% of all construction workers in the U.S. are illegal immigrants. That thirty percent amounts to 3.3 million illegal workers in construction alone. People who empathize with the imported job thieves misplace their sympathy at the expense of their friends, neighbors, kin, and themselves. .

Last year, bike sharing took off in China, with dozens of bike-share companies quickly flooding city streets with millions of brightly colored rental bicycles. However, the rapid growth vastly outpaced immediate demand and overwhelmed Chinese cities, where infrastructure and regulations were not prepared to handle a sudden flood of millions of shared bicycles. Riders would park bikes anywhere, or just abandon them, resulting in bicycles piling up and blocking already-crowded streets and pathways. As cities impounded derelict bikes by the thousands, they moved quickly to cap growth and regulate the industry. Vast piles of impounded, abandoned, and broken bicycles have become a familiar sight in many big cities.

US home insurance rates will hit a record high this year, according to grim new forecasts. The typical annual premium will rise to $2,522 by the end of 2024, according to insurance comparison platform Insurify - up 6 percent on a year before. This projected increase for 2024 comes on the back of a 20 percent hike over the last two years. This has largely been driven by escalating natural disasters, insurers pulling out of certain areas - which cuts down on competition - and higher fees for home repairs. Soaring costs mean home insurance is becoming increasingly unaffordable for many Americans - with many opting to forego
