Obamacare Premium Spikes In 2018 Now Greater Than Two Thirds Of A Family’s Wages In Some Areas

Just as in 2016, Obamacare could remain one of the major hot button topics for voters going into the 2018 mid-term elections.

And unless the Congressional Republicans can hammer out some form of repeal, replace, or adaptation of the Healthcare Act before the end of 2017, then premiums are expected to once again skyrocket for the majority of American families next year.

And how high might some of these premiums go?  Well in an example from one family in Virginia, their monthly premiums are going to be greater than two-thirds of the average household income for the entire state.

Ian Dixon, who left his full-time job in 2016 to pursue an app-development business, did so because the ACA guaranteed that he could still have quality coverage for his young family, he said.

But when the 38-year-old Charlottesville husband and father of a 3- and a 1-year-old went to re-enroll this month, his only choice for coverage would cost him more than $3,000 a month for his family of four, which amounted to an increase of more than 300 percent over the $900 he paid the year before. And this is for the second-cheapest option, with a deductible of $9,200.

“Helpless is definitely a good word for it,” Dixon said. “Rage is also a good word for it.” – Washington Post

With the average annual household income for the state of Virginia being around $53,723, or $4476 per month, a healthcare premium of over $3000.00 comes out to exactly 67%, or two-thirds of their monthly income.

We have already shown many time in previous articles that when the government gets involved in any particular industry, the costs of that market always rise, and usually to unaffordable levels.

Yet perhaps it is irony that the Federal government named Obamacare the Affordable Healthcare Act, because in the end it has proven to be exactly the opposite for consumers and the American people.

However then again maybe that was the plan from the beginning, since many who voted for this legislation wanted a single payer program run by the government in the first place.

    You can thank the Democrats who blocked ALL avenues for repeal/replace.

    The British passed the Stamp Act in 1765, and the colonies declared independence 11 years later.

      When the young men of this country cannot eat, then there will be action. That is why the food stamp cards are so important to the wealthy of this country as it keeps the deplorables fed.

    And whenever they try to repeal Obamacare, the democrats cry that it will take away the medical coverage of millions of Americans.
    The only reason they forced this horrible legislation down our throats was to destroy the insurance companies and end up with single payer.
    They even admitted that they relied on the stupidity of the people in order to get it passed. What a bunch of scumbags they are.

    • Neil Tana

      All the excessive premiums are going to the administrative costs that is confiscated by the rich people running the business. They are doing what the rest of their country club mens club are dictating; profit over human life in all cases of this end stage capitalism

      • willnkc

        Wrong! It’s being funneled into the Federal Bureaucracies so they can continue to build a totalitarian/socialist state. Socialism is what is wrong with this country, not capitalism. Capitalism creates wealth for all, while socialism ushers everyone into the same state of poverty.

    Cremation only costs $800.00 where I live. That’s a lot cheaper than this commie health care garbage.

    I’ll make my own way and if I die due to health, then that’s God’s will. No insurance/doctors/hospitals for me.

    • incognito

      Maybe cremation was their plan all along 🙁

      • Onan Max

        Naw, too much of a carbon “footprint”!

        • incognito

          ha-ha only when it fit their narrative 🙂

          • Onan Max

            Yup!

  • ANSISdotORG

    In ANY act of Congress, the name is exactly the opposite of what it does and is intended to do. Good thing acts of Congress are NOT law for the People of the states. It would be even better if the People stopped acting like government officers, but that is a pretty intense brainwashing that would have to be removed.

    Sarcasm on – but BHO said if you like your doctor, you could keep him or her. He also said if you liked your health care plan, you could keep it. But the best part about obamacare was that “your premiums will not increase by one thin dime.” Sarcasm off.
    Bottom line, you can not trust a politician as far as you can throw them. Bunch of frigging assholes.

  • Alleged-Comment

    This is liberal leftist judgment for working so hard and escaping the POVERTY of the TURD world.

    HOW DARE YOU???

    So now you have to hand over your money through illegal taxes, illegal premiums, fees, and give it back to Megroes, Mexicans, Mongrels, Moslems and Migrants.

    They should own your STUFF!! Yeah, that’s how leftist think.

  • Rose

    if this continued would be best thing to happen. pay cash for competent professionals with knoweldge of how to heal disease.

  • Neil Tana

    Americans are so stupid. They complain about Trump yet it is Obama’s legacy that is making impossible to afford healthcare. I guess we are going wait for more people to waste their money on zero service; just a qualification to get it even though they don’t get sick, then pay $9000 before getting discounts. WTF. Let’s not forget about the fake unemployment numbers and inflation rate. Again, Americans are so uneducated that they cannot even think for themselves when everything is crumbling around them.

  • dsaulw

    If American families cannot afford health care, how will they be able to afford it collectively, via single payer?

    • willnkc

      They won’t, healthcare will be given only to those that the government sees deserve it. People are dying because of Obamacare, and single-payer will only kill more people.
