Your Daily Dose of Schadenfreude
It felt good to type that headline just now -- my sticky note reminder fell off my monitor, and I hadn't done one of these in a while. So let us take our rotten joy now to Oregon, where yet another ObamaCare supporter is getting exactly what she wanted, good and hard. Read with a mean little grin:
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.
The woman — who wishes to remain anonymous — tells KOIN-TV that she originally championed President Barack Obama’s signature health care law because she thought it would help people in her situation.
“I’ve been a cheerleader for the Affordable Care Act since I heard about it and I assumed that it was designed for people in my situation,” she told KOIN. “I was planning on using the Affordable Care Act and I had done the online calculator in advance to make sure I was going to be able to afford it.”
Her 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.
“It wasn’t until I started the process and got an agent that I started hearing from them I wasn’t going to qualify for subsidies because I qualify on my husband’s insurance,” she told KOIN.
In other words, Miss Anonymous supported ObamaCare when she thought you were going to pay for it.
Scratch a prog, find a greedy, grubby thief.
