Today’s ♡FOD comes courtesy of Faceless Commenter. Betsy McCaughey lays out the details of something I’ve only mentioned once or twice — the concern over how many ♡bamaCare!!! enrollees with bother paying their second or third month’s premiums:
Why the concern? First-time insurance purchasers, especially those living paycheck to paycheck, will be shocked by ObamaCare’s high deductibles, about $3,000 for the silver plan (the most commonly selected) and $5,000 for the bronze plan (the most affordable).
Basically, you’ll have to pay thousands out of pocket for appointments, tests and prescriptions until you reach your deductible.
Millennials who heard Obama say on “Between Two Ferns” that they can buy a health plan for the price of a cellphone contract won’t be laughing when they realize what the $5,000 deductible means. (It’s like a cellphone contract that makes you pay $5 a text for your first thousand texts.) Rather than pay thousands out of pocket for care while also paying premiums, some will quit paying premiums.
That’s why the AMA is worried.
If Democrats are going to avoid total disaster in November, they need people benefitting from ♡bamaCare!!! in big enough and excited enough numbers to make a difference at the polls.
The Democrats can tout blah-blah imaginary millions all they like, but it’s little more than a desperate hope that someone will believe somebody is doing well enough under the law, that Democrats deserve to win reelection.
In other words, they’re selling a lie to the gullible about the nonexistent to benefit the corrupt.
Good luck with that, Donks.
