Here’s what Woodstock resident Susan Handelsman found:
Healthcare.gov premiums 23%+ higher in 60098 (Woodstock) than in Chicago 60602
Male age 50 median income $58,000 earner, CHEAPEST BRONZE PLAN, minimum $6000 deductible:

- HUNTLEY NEW HOSPITAL NOT ELIGIBLE TO BRONZE PLAN OBAMACARE BUYERS?
- WOODSTOCK CENTEGRA HOSPITAL IS AVAILABLE…
oh wait, Woodstock Hospital is virtually closed.
Oh, well, not important, these particular database beans are irrelevant to those human organisms which matter to the rulemakers.
OBAMACARE NON-TAX-DEDUCTIBLE EXCISE TAX kicks in at 8.2% of gross income.
At $58,000 median income, that translates into a monthly premium of $397.
McHenry County Median Income Earners are eligible to NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD INSURANCE, and NOT BE REQUIRED TO PAY 2.5% of income in NON-TAX-DEDUCTIBLE -EXCISE-TAX FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE NOT TO WORK TO GET FREE INSURANCE.
OBAMACARE doesn’t get excise tax contributions from self-employed Illinois taxpayers (of a certain age, 50 +, who must exceed 8.2% of income, and with medium income $58,000.)
Make less, pay more.
Didn’t President Obama in 2009 promise that the cost curve of health care would be bending down after his Obamacare legislation was passed?
Didn’t Obama also promise that households would be saving hundreds of dollars, maybe up to $2500 per year after his Obamacare legislation was passed?
Did Obama lie?
Where are Median Income Earners required to pay 2.5% of income excise tax to fund free healthcare insurance subsidies for entitled recipients?
8.2% of income is cut-off requiring non-deductible excise tax of 2.5% of income from those unable to afford to pay 8.2% of gross income for largely unusable ($6000+ deductible, exclusionary networks, co-pays, and indecipherable, constantly shifting, restrictive eligibility exclusions from modern medical treatment) for-profit health insurance finance contracts.
On a median income earner that is $396 per month premium, for cheapest bronze plan, all of which have >$6000 deductibles and significant co-pays.

So how do you like Obama care now, America ?
That’s why republicans delivered on their promise to the American people after 7 years of non-stop trashing of the Affordable Care Act and immediately repealed it in 2017. Oh, I forgot, the thumbs down by Senator John McCain…tic, tock, tic, tock…
It’s rich to see a liberal idolizing old “100 year war in Iraq, Savings & Loans scandal” McCain.
Hey Angel, as a highly compensated part time teacher with Gold Public Union Health and retirement benefits…what would you know about a working stiff taxpayers lot?
The real problem, that nobody cares to talk about, are the US Healthcare costs.
Obamacare and everything I have heard from the Republicans does absolutely nothing to fix this.
It’s like saying that if everyone had to pay for a public education then costs would stay low.
We all know how that’s working for us here.
The real problem is the demographic change in America, leading to Civil War II, c. 2019.
Humpty Dumpty civil order won’t be patchable after certain tipping points are reached.
Just sit back and watch the fun …… and the dispossession, and the inevitable reaction.
Lordy, flyover country will rebel!
Truth, your self same words are echoed across many driveway, front door, meet and greet and bar conversations.
If all those talkers would spend one tenth what they spend prepping a candidate they like would be flush with money.
If all those talkers would use their mouths for their pet causes one one hundredth the time they use espousing violence against their “enemies” America would easily withstand the trolling of the non producing class.
If all those talkers so much as got out of their easy chair to vote Franks would be out of politics.
Not one of those talkers will be putt holding any line with live fire coming at them.
Work now peacefully and wake up to a Republic you’ve earned.
Believe this… We have the government today we’ve earned every step of the way.
The real issue here has nothing to do with the ACA (aka Obamacare).
Centegra is Part of the problem but only because they are part of the spiraling healthcare costs.
You can repeal the ACA but it won’t change anything.
Nothing changes until insurance gets out of the business. That is when everything changed for the worse.
