Of course not.
One Oregon mother says that she is unable to afford health insurance for her and her 18-month-old son because it’s too expensive.
[Kate] Holly’s husband works for a non-profit organization that pays for his health care, but the couple is unable to afford to have her and their son covered under his plan. And she’s been told their combined income is too much to qualify for a subsidized health care plan under Cover Oregon.
But she still has to go on it! …And her rates would be going up from last year anywhere from reportedly 30% to 100%. Which we knew was going to happen, except that pro-Obamacare boosters kept solemnly repeating to us that the subsidies would counteract that. Except that, in Ms. Holly’s case, they won’t.
Somebody explain to me again how Barack Obama’s travesty of a health care program made things better for this family? – Because I’m missing that. Must be because I’m a Republican, or something.
PS: Five bucks says the husband loses his health care when the heavy hand of Obamacare works its way around to group policies. The good nonprofits have little operating margin; and the evil ones are, well, evil.
