Your ♡bamaCare!!! Fail of the Day

January 17th, 2014 - 8:24 am

A very confusing article from Motley Fool, in which the author tries to discern ♡bamaCare!!!’s winners and losers:

Who wins and loses as a result of the hidden Obamacare penalty resulting from higher deductibles? The easy answer is that employees lose, since they’re paying more out of their pockets. However, there are also less obvious losers.

Another possible long-term winner is the U.S. taxpayer.

Good luck sorting out the workers from the taxpayers there, cowboy.

This seems like the example re: the manipulation of statistics. 100 people in a room. 50 of them are twenty yrs old. The other 50 are sixty yrs old. The average age of people in the room is 40.

Sure, if you average the cost out over all the taxpayers and extrapolate that over the entire population and then amortize it over a number of years , the average taxpayer comes out a winner.

Good luck finding an actual taxpayer who comes out a winner.

Is that what they're doing here? Cause I suspect that it is.

"Another possible long-term winner is the U.S. taxpayer."

By expanding Medicaid, and subsidizing supposedly low income enrollees, the taxpayer wins? May be it's better to lose.

While technically a penalty means punishment for breaking a law...

That's what it says in my Webster's New Totalitarian Dictionary.
