They Claim Repeal Will Remove Millions From Healthcare, But What About THIS Fact?
Millions of people who can’t buy their own healthcare need you to buy it for them (taxes), and Obamacare is the vehicle through which the socialism takes place. Some Republicans voted for this system to remain in place. And they used the argument we’ve all heard time and again to justify their votes.
Millions will not have healthcare.
It’s a scary thought for a lot of people when they first hear it. It’s like visualizing granny being thrown off a cliff. No one wants to think about it that way.
But the thing is, Republicans and Democrats who use this argument ignore a huge part of the equation. 2.6 million Americans were shoved out of the healthcare marketplace this year alone.
Let’s state that one more time to make sure it sinks in.
2.6 MILLION AMERICANS WERE PUSHED OUT OF THE INDIVIDUAL HEALTHCARE MARKETPLACE THIS YEAR.
Apparently you only matter if you can’t pay your own way. If you can afford some sort of insurance, even if it’s overpriced, under-performing, over-regulated and not what you want, you don’t matter. You can die due to no coverage and it’s no big deal.
This seems to be the message coming out of Washington. Albeit indirectly.
More via IBD.
An analysis by Mark Farrah and Associates found that between 2016 and 2017, the number of people buying coverage outside the ObamaCare exchanges — who aren’t eligible for subsidies — plunged by 2.6 million. Of those 2.2 million were enrolled outside the exchanges and roughly 400,000 were enrolled inside the exchanges. That’s a decline of 29% outside the exchanges, but only a 4%, inside the exchanges.
That’s just in the last year.
Ironically Obamacare is so awful those who qualify for subsidies don’t even want it.
ObamaCare isn’t even that great a deal for those eligible for subsidies, since only 40% of those eligible for subsidized coverage have enrolled.
Yeah, but we have to have a replacement plan that saves millions from losing coverage, right?
Millions ARE losing coverage. And Washington isn’t doing a damn thing about it.
