Buckle up for the worst healthcare crisis we’ve ever seen

News out of Washington this week made many Americans cry, “Ouch!”

Of course, we are talking about President Obama’s signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act, which is in a full-on death spiral.

Just weeks before the election, the Department of Health and Human Services has announced the premium increases for ObamaCare for next year. And — spoiler alert — there hasn’t been a single year in which they have become more “affordable.”

Unfortunately, sitting around the kitchen table planning your family budget for next year just got a whole lot more difficult. In 2017, the average mid-level ObamaCare plan — a “Silver Plan” — will cost you 22 percent more than 2016.

Let’s start with the obvious. The average middle-class worker in America isn’t getting a 22 percent raise next year.

No, after the lost decade during which wages didn’t budge, this year we may end up with a minor increase of maybe, just maybe, a mere 2 percent.

But the ObamaCare clowns — consultant Jonathan Gruber and plan architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel — are out in full force, saying that if you switch plans, you can avoid the increase.

Only if you don't have an education and employer sponsored healthcare plan.

12:17 pompass much? Education or not, the only thing saving you is employer sponsored. There are a lot of "educated" under employed, under paid, unemployed who are suffering just as much as us "uneducated"

Stick it where the sun don't shine pumpkin.
