Insurance at colleges

Nothing is sacred.  I didn't even think about this, not once, during this entire Obamacare debacle.

Even health insurance that is provided by colleges and universities will change to comply with Obamacare standards.  No wonder he has gone on and on about how "kids" can stay on their parents' insurance until they are 26.  He was going to toss them off their college insurance.

Remember that college insurance?  You paid $100 a semester and you could get all stitched up after a kitchen accident.  I distinctly remember getting pneumonia and going to that icky college clinic.  Anyhoo, just like every other insurance ever provided in this country, it was there and it worked.

Now, colleges like Bowie State University in Maryland are seeing their premiums for coverage of college students rise from $100 a semester to $1,800 a semester!

Why?  The new guidelines under Obamcare do away with "substandard" plans like those and provide much better ones for all of those stupid people who didn't know that they didn't know better!

So, Bowie State is dropping health insurance coverage for its students.  Thanks, Obama!

Senator from New York, Kirsten Gillibrand, gave an interview where she said that, "we knew" all along that premiums would go up and that people would lose their crappy plans.  The president should have just been more specific.

Well, if he had been more specific, I am pretty sure that we all know what would have happened.  There would be no Obamacare and I would be blogging right now about Bill Engvall's performance on Dancing with the Stars.

Nancy Pelosi stands by her statement that we need to pass the bill to find out what is in it.  Ugh, I don't even want to go there.

Well, now we all know what is in it.  Democrats knew what was in it, socialized healthcare.

Now, we need to see if Americans still have any fighting spirit left.  Can we stand up to our socialist, tyrannical government?

I hope so.
