Obamacare’s winners and losers in Bay Area:

“I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,’ Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.

‘I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.’

Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level — the cutoff for a tax credit. And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn’t realize they would rise so much.

‘Of course, I want people to have health care,’ Vinson said. ‘I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.'”

As predicted, and right on schedule, the math arrives.
