CNN: Obamacare 'Success Story' Can't Afford Obamacare
Last week the nation met "Adriana," the Obamacare girl whose photo adorned the Healthcare.gov website. It turned out that the site's mascot neither supports nor opposes Obamacare (publicly, at least) and had not even enrolled in the president's plan -- which her photo was being used to advertise. Adriana also isn't a US citizen, though she is applying.
So the Obama administration couldn't manage to find a US citizen who qualified for and enrolled in Obamacare to adorn its flagship Obamacare website.
Well, on October 21, President Obama held a Rose Garden ceremony to tout his failing program. He surrounded himself with human props as he tends to do when he is in trouble, and hailed Jessica Sanford as a success story.
CNN reports that Sanford's "success" is now a failure. She can't afford Obamacare.
The CNN report quotes President Obama as saying, "I recently received a letter from a woman named Jessica Sanford in Washington state. And here's what she wrote, I am a single mom, no child support, self-employed. and I haven't had insurance for 15 years because it's too expensive. I was crying the other day when I signed up, so much stress lifted."
"But days, just really three days after she was mentioned by the president, Jessica Sanford started having problems, she was receiving letters from the Washington state health exchange," reports CNN. "The first letter telling her that tax credit was reduced, therefore, increasing the cost of her health care plan and the, take a look at this, then she received a letter just last week telling her that her tax credit had been taken away all together. Show you another document here, showing what the tax credit worked out to be... zero dollars according to this document that was provided to us by Jessica Sanford. She describes all of this as a roller coaster ride. Now she says she can't afford insurance in Washington state because of the new developments."
Obamacare delenda est.
