I just lost a client

I am sure now that I have lost more than one.

Some I am sure I have not even been contact by.

So, why did I lose them...Affordable Care Act.

10 days ago, my potential client called and said his

families insurance was going up over $400 a month.

He said, we just can't afford to move.

My own Insurance was going to go up over $200 a month.

I was going to buy a Brand  New Car.

Even my coverage is compromised in many ways.

 

Guess what...I am driving my old one for another year...or more.

 

People keep asking what will happen when either of the Presidential

candidates get in.

It will not matter as much as the ACA  has affected the economy, especially in small towns.

 

People have a lot less disposable income now.  Some have none extra at all.

Worried about the election.  Think more about what needs to happen not who will get in.

 

Here is an example of cut rate service...

 

ACA vasectomy

It is extremely frustrating time right now.  And no one really seems to have an answer how to get out.  No quick fix that is for sure.  And in this age of NOW that in and of itself is a problem.  Mark

William Feela - I do feel the pain! Some families can't even re-fi to lower mortgage rates and may have difficult times!

Let's hope for the best - it seems with the better housing market, the economy is getting better.

Thats a painful picture Bill, almost as painful as some of the programs that we will all have to continue to live with.

The term Affordable Care Act is an oxymoron. I'm hearing so many stories of increases and I just can't believe people have not begun to revolt.

Good morning William.  Thankfully I'm on Medicare, do I like it why yes, yes I do, can it be improved on your bet ya.

I'm with James.  Thank goodness for Medicare.  And there are those who want to do away with this program as well.

Our monthly insurance cost is RIDICULOUS!  And the coverage it provides sad...

The ACA doesn't seem to be going as it was planned and I hope that I never have to get a vasectomy in that manner, haha.

The ACA is no laughing matter, but the joke is...and could be painful!

Posted by Vern Eaton, Realtor 651-674-7449 almost 3 years ago

It's really kind of sad and it's pretty scarey as well.

I am hopeful that after the election, Congress and the new president will find a way to work across party lines to improve the ACA, and provide relief for premiums, and prescription costs.

William Feela the government got involved and managed to make a difficult insurance system worse...big shock.  Where's the media outrage on the lies that were told that shoved this Obamacare nightmare on the public?

Hello William

I like Myrl's possitive approach, but it sounds to good to be true!

And then again I like Lisa's comment and Insurance Companies are destroying this country ...

My daughter and grandson's coverage (Obamacare)  is over $900 a month now and she got a notice it is going up 65%. That is obscene and unfair to do to a young family.
