Rabid conservative insurance broker invites a reporter & camera crew into a meeting with a small business.
Rabid conservative insurance broker reports to the small business, that due to Obamacare regulations, they have to switch to a new plan.
Employees are told that they will be facing large monthly increases for plans with higher deductibles.
One employee, Judy, will be seeing her monthly premiums increase from $929 to $1316.
The reporter & camera crew are on hand to record the employees' shock and outrage.
The small business owner, whose own monthly premiums will be jumping $584, laments, "The small businesses are the heart of America, so, how is that going to affect everybody? It's not good."
The Weekly Standard packages it up, and abnormal jumps on to babble to report. He's "not exactly fond of the source," but, "this is interesting."
It turns out the plans available on the small business exchange are half the cost of the plans offered by the rabid conservative insurance broker.
Additionally, it turns out a provision of the ACA is that if employee premiums make up more than 9.5% of income, those employees are eligible for the individual exchanges. Plans on the individual exchanges are half the cost of the plans offered by the rabid insurance broker. And will be even less for those eligible for subsidies.
Both plans on the small business exchange and plans on the individual exchange cost less than the employees were paying for their insurance this past year.
Information about these lower cost plans are easily found by searching on a web site. That's why stories like this can be thoroughly debunked within 24 hours.
Employees from this company will certainly hear about the better options available to them. I wonder what will happen as more and more people have experiences like this.
I wonder how the Republicans will do to run against Obamacare.
I wonder what will happen to this rabid conservative insurance broker's annual salary. I guess he is just "informing" his clients about the dangers of Obamacare.
abnormal, you fall for this laughable shit, dude? I thought you considered yourself a serious person.
