The president said I could keep my health care plan. That was a lie. I was just informed by Regence that my plan will not be available as of Jan. 1 when Obamacare takes effect.
Everyone keeps trying to say that Obamacare is a good thing. But if you are close to the age of 60 you no longer can afford health care.
I retired this year, and my employer did not offer retiree health care. I found a Regence plan that is perfect for me. I pay $390 per month for the plan. It covers all the preventive tests I need for my age. I have a $2,500 deductible. The cheapest plan I can get under Obamacare is $560 per month with a $7,500 deductible and includes benefits I can never use. I do not qualify for any tax credits.
I want someone to explain to me how Obamacare is helping me. I want someone to explain to me why I cannot keep the perfect and affordable plan I have now. All I can see is that the older people that have to purchase a private health care plan are the people who are subsidizing everyone else.
Now I want what the president promised: to keep my current health care plan or get the same exemptions that all of Obama’s friends are getting. I for one am glad that someone is fighting for me to repeal Obamacare. I cannot afford the “affordable” health care plans under Obamacare.
