A Message From Blue Cross Blue Shield To ALL AMERICANS .. ..
November 6, 2012 will be the most important date that will affect the rest of your life ... The Choice Is Yours.

A message from Blue Cross Blue Shield
Professor Emeritus John W. Hill, JD, PhD
Kelley School of Business, Indiana University

MEDICARE

Look clearly at the 2014 rate compared to the 2013 rate.

For those of you who are on Medicare, read the following. It's short, but
important and you probably haven't heard about it in the Mainstream News:

"The per person Medicare Insurance Premium will increase from the present Monthly Fee of $96.40, rising to:

$104.20 in 2012

$120.20 in 2013

And

$247.00 in 2014."

These are Provisions incorporated in the Obamacare Legislation, purposely delayed so as not to confuse the 2012 Re-Election Campaigns. Send this to all Seniors that you know, so they will know who's throwing them under the bus.

I guess Medicare didn't get the e-mail. They're only charging $99.90/month this year, not...

"$104.20 in 2012"

"A Message From Blue Cross Blue Shield To ALL AMERICANS"


Do you really think that Blue Cross would send out an email to 'ALL AMERICANS'?

And a sure sign of any chain/spam/propaganda email is CAPITALIZED LETTERS FOR EMPHASIS. This is only second to 'forward this to everyone you know'.

I like this part

" A Message From Blue Cross Blue Shield To ALL AMERICANS"

"A message from Blue Cross Blue Shield

Its a message from Blue Cross Blue Shield from a Professor at the Kelley School of Business

Wouldn't it be from some EMPLOYEE of Blue Cross Blue Shield , like the CEO, President, or Spokesperson :dunno:

Also would a professional message from a company as big as Blue Cross, or from some PhD professor from a University use words like "Mainstream Media" or "Throwing you Under the Bus"

Come on, think with your head people. Learn the truth and don't follow propanganda no matter what party its from.
