The story is appearing today in newspapers throughout Florida and apparently is also being broadcast in CA on KTLA.
You act as though your tripe is going to make a difference going forward__have you too lost your fkn mind?
I love how you loony left wingers ignore certain words. Lily ignored "supplemental" the other day, and now you are ignoring "about". It's going to be higher than $100 per month (my test came out to $132) and it doesn't include the $5200 out of pocket expenses they will be liable for. Considering there are thousands of clinic that take people regardless of their ability to pay and that other doctors charge as little as $45 per visit, it's a rip off.

Maximum % of income you have to pay for the non-tobacco premium, if eligible for a subsidy: 6.61%
Amount you pay for the premium:$1,587 per year which equals 6.61% of your household income and covers 50% of the overall premium)
You could receive a government tax credit subsidy of up to:$1,576
(which covers 50% of the overall premium)
Also, Your out-of-pocket maximum for a Silver plan (not including the premium) can be no more than $5,200 (There's your deductible...$5200)

almost, but the maximum out-of-pocket is the sum of the deductible plus copays...the deductible is probably around $2K...

the first time they go to the emergency room, they could get hit for a bill of $2250...the $2000 deductible plus a $250 emergency room copay......and these clowns will probably think they can go for free, because they either can't read or won't bother to read the policy...

Those paying only $100 per month are those with very little income and probably can't afford even that premium ....

But meanwhile, more on the effects of ObammyCare:

Walgreen Drops its Healthcare Coverage for 160,000 Workers:

Like the president said, "of you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.” Well, unless you're one of the tens of millions of Americans who can't. Including, it turns out, lots of Walgreens employees.

Walgreen Co.(WAG), the biggest U.S. drugstore chain, will move its workers into a private health insurance exchange to buy company-subsidized coverage, the latest sign of how the debate over Obamacare is accelerating a historic shift in corporate health-care coverage. Walgreen’s decision affects about 160,000 current employees and follows similar action this year by Sears Holdings Corp.(SHLD) and Darden Restaurants Inc.(DRI) As an alternative to administering a traditional health plan, all three will send their employees to an exchange run by Aon Plc.

IBM and GE recently announced similar changes in their retirees plans, which are not to be confused with UPS' decision to drop spousal coverage. CBS News reported the "big deal" announcement this morning, noting that employees may have to swallow more out-of-pocket costs due to Walgreens' cost-saving move:

As the CBS correspondent points out, Walgreens made this move to insulate itself from anticipated rising healthcare costs, which Obamacare was ostensibly going to reverse. Based on CBO projections published yesterday, health costs will continue their inexorable climb, approximately doubling within the next 25 years. Walgreens will provide employees with a flat stipend to help defray some of those increased costs, but employees should brace to pay more on their own.

What makes this particular corporate decision ironic is that Walgreens agreed to team up with HHS to promote the new law, which has now forced major benefits changes within their own company.

The drug store chain is boosting a policy that has forced management to expose one of the president's core pledges as UNTRUE.

It is obvious that Obama's unamiguous vow to voters was false. Instead, he does a lot singing and dancing about the value of "choice and competition," (while, of course, opposing Paul Ryan's bipartisan reform to save Medicare), and echoing Harry Reid's pronouncement that Obamacare is only the first step toward really fixing our still-broken healthcare system through a fully government-run single payer system.

Confronted with this $2 trillion law's undeniable FAILURES, its cheerleaders are already making the pivot to their next bad idea.

George H.W. Bush lost his reelection because he reneged on "Read my lips, no new taxes." Yet Obama is reelected after he reneged on "If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what."

The damage done by Bush's tax hikes pale in comparison to the damage done by Obamacare. The scary part is we haven't come close to seeing the full extent of OBAMACARE DAMAGE to our country.

Still he was reelected. WHO IS WORSE, THE IDIOT IN OFFICE OR THE IDIOT WHO VOTED FOR THE IDIOT?

Just wait until those ObammyCare "Navigators" gets hold of your social security number, your childrens' social security numbers and all your medical information. They are hiring people without background checks and with as much screening as ACORN-style community organizers are given. Talk about the potential for ruining your credit and medical identity theft.

President "Hope and Change" should be called what he really is: President "Hoax and Chains".

Brown Eyes and all who voted for this debacle, owe us all an apology. But he's still too stupid to figure it out, let alone admit it.
