The Obamacare We Don’t Deserve

Adding statist insult to injury:

“Zack thought he was going to have to pay several hundred dollars more a month for roughly the same level of coverage for him and his wife, before you even factored in the kids. They didn’t have the money for it.

Zack finally managed to insure himself and the missus for roughly what they pay now, for an Obamacare-compliant plan with a $6,000-plus deductible. That should come in handy if one of them is struck by a car. Other expenses will have to be covered out of pocket, costing them more.

As for the kids, Zack couldn’t swing it. He had to sign them up for a highly subsidized public plan offered by the state. ‘Under Obamacare, I went from being a successful, self-sustaining small businessman,’ Zack told me, disdainfully, ‘to now signing my kids up as dependents of the state.’”

And still we’re hearing crickets from many of the folks who said that this would all work out. No “I was wrong” admissions anywhere.
