His health and the health of his family hasn't changed, yet he's now paying $3000 more, per year.
If they had required people to stop engaging in risky behavior, bad diet and no exercise, it might not be so bad but when people continue to eat mostly junk/fast food, sit on their butt and drink/drug their way through life but still get free health care, we need to step up and say "NO MORE!" to the government.
Has anyone heard of "good success stories" of the new Health Care System?!? Me, I've not heard anything positive. Costing our company an extra $4.2MM dollars for the ACA. Deductables went up (before $250-now $500), coverage down (max out of pocket befor $9600, now $19200). Emergency room (before - $150, now - 20%.....huge!)
