Just another “big bump” on the road to Obamacare.
Flag the year 2014 and watch a tremendous rise in your healthcare costs thanks to Obamacare. Not only will you be paying for your own healthcare, and for the healthcare for your families, you will also be paying for the healthcare of the president and his family; members of Congress and their families; Congressional staff members and their families; and members of our judiciary and their families.
It doesn’t matter that every single one of them make a tad bit more money than most of us, and a lot more money than some of us.
A deferment on “caps” is the latest bump to rollout on this infamous debacle. Watch for the “caps” on out of pocket expenses. They have been delayed until after the 2014 elections.
“Why,” you may ask? Because Democrats do not want little annoyances like major increases in your healthcare costs to interfere with their 2014 win. After 2014, all bets are off. You can whine and moan and beat your heads against the wall, but once Obamacare is fully implemented, there will be no turning back.
When the dust clears, all the insurance companies will be put out of business and we will have a single payer healthcare system similar to Canada and the UK — which by the way, has been the objective all along.
Get ready to tighten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a very bumpy ride.

Some media sources are reporting on this, including the New York Times and Forbes. The following excerpt is from Newser.
“The first year of the Affordable Care Act may not be too affordable for some. The New York Times reports that another key part of ObamaCare—this time, a cap on out-of-pocket expenses for patients—will be delayed by a year. The law was supposed to guarantee that individuals would not have to pay more than $6,350 and families more than $12,700, but insurers argued successfully that they needed more time to comply. The reason? They say they haven’t had enough time to get their computers in sync on the issue.”
