Default And how are you spending it ???

I was just wondering what all of you guys, and the people that you know are doing with the $2,500.00 that you are saving a year now that the ACA has kicked in??

The way I see it is this.
I pay about $90.00/week for my healthcare , and it is the best I have ever had in my life. After my savings of $2,500 per year i will now only be paying $48.00 per week Woo-hoo.

I can't wait to start spending all of this extra money.
Does anyone know when the savings will actually kick in?

Think about it......

TriOval slip ons
Lloydz VM-1 DR Cams
Lloydz PTS +4 degrees
Lloydz air filter
1/4 turn throttle
99.7 HP/107.2TQ

Now you know how I've felt for the last 8 years:D

On health care. Now that my benefits have been forcibly reduced I will need every penny.

The savings will kick in as soon as ACA is repealed.

Spending mine on decreased coverage, along with increased deductibles. But hey!! The bright side is,,,,,,,, it is only costing me $50 more a month.

I should be saving about $50 a month. My new plan will cost 350 vs my 400 a month non major medical discount/partial reimbursement I now have. This is as opposed to 1400 a month for my wife and I that we simply could not afford. We are both self employed and business owners. To those losing their plans I'm sorry but the reason you lost them is your carrier "decided" not to abide by the governments coverage. I'm really tired of hearing everyone whine about their coverage. Where was the whining when I couldn't get coverage. The pendulum swings and now it swings my way. Finally!

I'll also say this, it's time to outlaw healthcare for profit. Single payer system, Medicare for all. Just like the rest of the world. We all pay into it according to our incomes. If you make enough money that you wanna spend extra to get what your perception is a better care than so be it. Otherwise the guy sweeping the floor gets the same care he paid for as the guy who runs the company. And for those that wanna cry socialism. Go right ahead. If there was a social conscience in this country we wouldn't be in the mess we are in.

I will be spending it on the higher cost of every copay, higher deductible, uncovered test, uncovered procedure, and uncovered prescription.
