A lot of people in California are finding out that it kind of sucks to be the egg that gets broken in order to make the omelette. I have no sympathy.
Thousands of Californians are discovering what Obamacare will cost them — and many don’t like what they see.
These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years.
Everyone who wasn’t a starry-eyed worshiper of the Unicorn Prince knew that this would happen, so naturally nearly 60 percent of California voters are waking up to a severe shock. Here is self-employed lawyer Jennifer Harris finally figuring out what wealth redistribution actually entails:
“It doesn’t seem right to make the middle class pay so much more in order to give health insurance to everybody else,” said Harris, who is three months pregnant. “This increase is simply not affordable.”
Harris makes too much money to receive subsidies under ObamaCare, and her rates have more than doubled as a consequence of the law. Well Jennifer, someone has to pay for Utopia.
