So on day 3 we were finally able to get into the Healthcare.gov site (more on that below).
My wife and I own a small business and for years now have been paying astronomical rates but because of that horrible Obamacare our family will be financially destroyed, or not :-)
Our 2013 Health Ins Premium - $1,850/mo or $22,200 per year
(this is coverage for my wife and I only)
Our 2014 Health Ins Premium under Obamacare - $921/mo or $11,052 per year
Annual Savings - $11,148Now in full disclosure the plans (we selected a Platinum Plan) are a little different than ours now, better in some areas and not as good in others but with a maximum out of pocket cap of $3,000 total no matter what happens we are way ahead.
The only thing that would have made me happier would have been an expansion of Medicare for all, but maybe some day.
A word about the glitches. I am sorry there is no excuse for the website to not have worked (with a few minor glitches) from day one. This is Obama's largest and most important program and they have seen this October 1st deadline for over 2 years. I think that Obama should publicly fire Sebelius for this a error. Not because she personally messed up but because she was the captain of the ship and they ran aground. Obama needs to send a message to his folks that good intentions are not enough at their level they actually have to perform, well!
