Do you know any young single Obama voters? Maybe the guys and gals who were excited about their “free” contraceptives offered through Obamacare? Those who excitedly said, “Yes. Yes. We all need health care.”
Share this with those guys.
The first new price rates came out today in Vermont. An enthusiastically democratic state, Vermont politicians have been pushing for a single payer program within their state. The state is implementing its own health care program allowing it to receive a waiver from Obamacare. Which all sounds good…
At least until people find out the “free” programs actually cost money.
In the released rates, a family of four making $34,000 government subsidies will reduce their health care cost to less than $50 a month. Of course, that same family (as any VT family of four making under $57,000) per year qualifies today for the state run Medicaid program.
But what if you, still living in Vermont, and are single making $40,000. Next year, your health insurance cost will be about $300 per month. Oops.
Visit the Vermont health insurance website to see for yourself. The idea of single payer insurance with added perks and benefits seems great…until you realize, somebody has to pay for it.
