I'm sure many of my readers follow Hope 'n Change cartoons, written by 'Stilton Jarlsberg' (sounds like he's cheesed off about something!). It appears la famille Jarlsberg has recently been exposed to the joys of Obamacare. Their existing coverage was canceled, and they've had the devil's own job finding alternatives. They've described the process in four articles (scroll down at the links if necessary to reach the appropriate sections):
Here's a money quote from the third article above:
Make no mistake, the health insurance system is actively and rapidly collapsing exactly as it was designed to do under Obamacare. The nation's largest provider of health insurance is giving signals that it may exit the Obamacare market entirely in the near future, other providers are slashing coverage and choice of physicians in the face of poor enrollment numbers, and most of the much-vaunted insurance "co-ops" have already gone out of business.
But take heart. As much as it seems that the whole industry has gone to hell, rest assured that within the next several years we'll look back on the mess we have now as "the good old days."
I shudder to think that they're probably right . . . Karl Denninger has waxed eloquent about the train wreck that is the US health care system (try this article for a start). He's probably reading their comments and saying, "Told you!" Michelle Malkin has also experienced problems with Obamacare.
I'd be interested in hearing from my readers. How many of you have had problems finding coverage under Obamacare? Please tell us a little about it in Comments, so we can compare notes. Thanks.
