Obama’s Lack of Concern and Care.
Count the cost? His plan will overtime… get more expensive to you and I.
What is it going to cost you?
I don’t know if everyone has heard or got the news yet so allow me to share somethings that will, not maybe, change the kind of Obama Care we are going to get in 2016. I saw this coming and raised the red flag but no body listened.
In 2016 for those of us on set incomes whether it be disability or social security, we will not receive a raise and that being the fourth year out. That’s old news I realize but hear me out. If you didn’t like that wait till you hear what’s coming next. You won’t. I promise.
Our copay for prescriptions will more then double and some of the medications that have been in tier 1, will now be moved to tier 2 an even costlier proposition. Did I spell that out correctly. Reviewing: 2016 no raises to help offset the cost of increased copay’s for prescriptions. Our copay’s will more then double and in some cases will triple in cost. Can you afford to do that? Can you pay the cost?
The Democrats used to be the party that represented the working man, the working family and those who retired after paying into Social Security – which the Democrat’s started. To include Medicare and Medicaid. Now when it comes to those of us who have retired and are dependent on said programs. It’s safe to say they are turning their backs on us. You know, the Retired Americans and in essence flipping us off. If there’s any “Care” in the program it will disappear in the year 2016. What will be your out of pocket cost?
My set income along with set expenditures isn’t flexible enough for me to rearrange them in such a way as to pay the increase. My budget has no horizontal, vertical or lateral movement in it. How about yours? For others as well as myself, I sit here wondering what drugs I can come off of and what drugs I can cut in half? Even my insurance provider called to ask me to consult with my Dr. and see what can be eliminated. Is this an acceptable option? How can I responsibly cut or reduce my drug costs? How can you reduce your cost?
Have you heard? That you will be able to go (you get to go) to your local pharmacy and order a 90 day supply. You will get a three months supply for the cost of two months or so it appears at first. In Tier 1, that may be true but in the other tiers. Well, let me share with you what I’ve learned. The cost is about to go up!
You can go to Express Scripts and order by mail which will cut your over the counter cost. Over the counter: Tier 1, At $12.50 a month. More then double last years copay. Tier 1, the new cost for a 90 day supply 2016 will be $24.00 or better to fill one 90 day prescription. Compared to last year 2015: I spent $5.00 a month per prescription and was able to purchase a three month supply = 90 day for $15.00. Is my math correct? The increase is an over all $7.00 a month, I did say “An increase for one prescription” and that’s just for Tier 1.
I then learned three of my medications now qualify for Tier 2. At $15.00 or more a month and the cost for a 90 day supply at $30.00 or better. Can you afford such a cost increase??? I can’t.
Do the math for yourself and you tell me what this will mean to your personal monthly budget? Don’t take my word for it check it out with your insurance provider and see if I’m lying or telling the truth. Let’s hope your insurance provider can do better then that. The cost?
Did I just hear you ask, “What the #E!! ?????”
I just checked my monthly, Dec. 2015, Prescription Drug Summary, as provided by Scan, my insurance provider. I’m already paying full price MSRP, for most of my prescriptions and the plan for 2015, isn’t picking up a dime. Why, Omeprazole and Acid Reflux, is going into Tier 2 is beyond me as my current cost is $5.52 a month and if I read the Formulary correctly, next year I will pay $15.00 a month or better.
Whatever happened to “Advantage Programs?” Obama by his own declaration and carried by the media, “Put them on notice”. I wish I could of been in on that conference call. Believe me when I say the “Advantage” well….there just isn’t any, anymore. Gone!
One fact that stands out and should slap you in the face. The drug companies have increased the cost of drugs for most Americans while keeping the cost low for other countries.
Begging the question who sold out to the drug companies?
One more thing you need to be aware of. This New Revolutionized Health Care Program is not Obama’s. Using a football analogy it’s Hillary Clinton’s and she simply handed off the football to Obama and he carried it in for a touch down.. Those of us in health care fought this back when Bill was in office. The system we had was solid and worked well. Yes, it needed some refinements but NOT a complete overhaul. Believe me when I say health care providers didn’t want to see this happen. We fought it and won the battle but we didn’t win the war. We saw precisely what is transparent to every American Today, we saw it coming back when. Allow me to warn you: Hillary if elected as president, she will protect it like a mother hen and her chicks and/or a mamma wolf protects her pups. The cost? What about the cost?
If you think things are going to change because I wrote this…phhht…everything normal…all messed up….fubar! You don’t mind if I spell that with the letters FU? The folks in Washington DC., are totally out of touch with reality. Then I hear that Obama pointing to gas prices edict-ed no raises because the cost of living hasn’t gone up. Gas prices, the biggest yo,yo out there and that justifies…. no raises? I would of fired someone on my staff if they had made such an analogy and used that to justify no raises when preparing their departmental yearly budgets.
If you aren’t waking up to what’s happening in and to America you better sit up and take notice.
Socialism is sweeping the political mindset of America and this is just the beginning. It hasn’t worked anywhere else it’s been tried, what makes us think it will work here. What are we thinking?
May I suggest? Let’s bring them back to reality with our pocket books and votes. Better yet. let your voice be heard and swamp the phone lines and mail boxes of our representatives in Washington, DC and our State Capitals.
I promise it will only get worse unless we change course.
For those who voted for Obama, or any other Democrat……you’ll hear me say, “You get what you deserve.” You asked for it and you got it. I hope your happy.
Where are the Republicans? Do we still have a Republican Party? Are they all in bed… together? They all seem to be pushing for “A One World Order.” Have we forgotten how our families that first set shore in America came here to be independent of European Rulers, mini-gog’s, demi-gog’s, land-lord’s, war-lord’s and otherwise tyrant’s. Right now our politicians are opening the door to European Treaties and governments, who desire to govern the U.S. of A. from outside America. For example the U.N. Do you really want to go backwards to our past? To be ruled by someone who wants to take away our freedom’s and choices to live as we choose away from us. Someone, other then an American. I don’t!!!!!!
An Unhappy, Frustrated and Disappointed Democrat, in Big Bear Country.
This Time…Vote your conscientious.
