– “Grubbered” AGAIN—

The sneaky “little” Obamacare fee that’s costing you BIG cash
It’s that scary time of year again, when the monsters and ghouls come out.
No, I’m not talking about Halloween.
I’m talking about Obamacare!
Reenrollment season is just around the corner, and that means another round of sticker shock as Americans find their premiums going up AGAIN.
It’s all tricks and no treats, and the biggest trick of all is hidden in the fine print. It’s those deductibles that keep rising — and a damning new analysis finds they’re not just going up a little bit at a time.
They’re jumping at nearly SEVEN TIMES the rate of salaries.
Before Obamacare, less than half of Americans paid deductibles, with the average fee running at $900 in 2009.
Since then — since the UN-Affordable Care Act was signed into law in 2010 — the average deductible has risen to $1,300.
That’s a jump of 67 percent, and those are the lucky ones. Americans who work for small businesses (the MAJORITY of Americans) are paying an average of $1,800 in deductibles a year, and one in five have deductibles of $2,000 or higher.
If healthcare gets any more “affordable,” we’ll all be bankrupt!
Many Americans now have coverage in name only as a result. They’re so broke from paying their premiums that they can’t actually afford to pay their deductibles, so they just don’t go to the doctor.
Even the New York Times — once Obamacare’s biggest cheerleader – told the story of a woman who had been treated for brain cancer who didn’t get an MRI for her follow-up because she couldn’t pay the deductible.
That’s not healthcare. That’s a SCAM, plain and simple, and millions of hard-working Americans have been conned into paying more and getting less in return.
With a presidential election just 13 months away, it’s time to keep up the pressure like never before and make sure this is the NUMBER ONE issue on the campaign trail… and not just in the race for the White House.
Every single seat in the House will be up for grabs — so make sure whoever’s running in your local district has his priorities straight no matter what party he represents.
