Liberal Blogger In Shock Over Obamacare Premium Increase
Liberals and other worshipers of government power over the individual still refuse to accept reality

Tirge Caps, writing for the Daily Kos, has expressed righteous indignation over his skyrocketing healthcare insurance premium following the implementation of Obamacare.
He has decided to cancel his policy and will tell the government to stick its mandate enforced at gunpoint where the sun doesn’t shine.
“My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don’t go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe,” Caps writes. “Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife’s rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284… I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any fucking penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?”
Unfortunately, the reality of Obamacare – the fact it is a crony capitalist arrangement designed to enrich monopolistic insurance corporations – has not modified Mr. Caps’ welfare as a god-given right attitude.
“Oh, ok, if we qualify, we can get some government assistance. Great. So now I have to jump through another hoop to just chisel some of this off. And we don’t qualify, anyway, so what’s the point?” he gripes.
