HAC's Personal Obamacare Saga
So far, I have tried to get onto the Washington state Obamacare website (not healthcare.gov) eight times. Four times it would not allow me to open an account, saying my proposed passwords didn't match, although they most certainly did. Once the screen froze, and once I logged off after seven minutes of the little circle whirling beside the word "connecting". Twice the site was "down for maintenance."
I mention this because one of the Democrat lies is that it's just the healthcare.gov site that's screwed up and the state sites are working fine. They aren't. The state of Washington refuses to reveal how many people have signed on through their site. Wonder why?
My understanding from the media is that once I do set up an account I will not be allowed to view any premium prices at all until I fax some bureaucrat in Olympia my tax return and he or more likely she gets back to me, "to determine if I am eligible for subsidies."
I gather that what they're doing in Washington is basically just slapping everybody on Medicaid because they couldn't get enough private insurers to participate except at insane costs due to the demand that they cover breast pumps, abortions, Viagra and pre-existing conditions.
In any case, after four years, I still have not gotten one authentic glimpse at a price list. The best estimate I got for a man of my age and sybaritic lifestyle, from a Kaiser Permanente cheat sheet on the web, was $751 per month, which ain't happening.
