Here is a message I received from healthcare.gov
Quality health coverage may be more affordable than you think. 8 out of 10 people who enrolled in a health plan at HealthCare.gov qualified for financial help to make their monthly payments more affordable. In fact, most people can find monthly premiums for $75 dollars or less per month.
The question is, is something really more affordable because somebody else is paying for it; in this case taxpayers or perhaps more accurate the federal deficit?
And how do we encourage people to do better economicaly, to earn more for their family when all or a portion of any gain is lost because they lose subsidies like this? Imagine if we raise the minimum wage to $15 and as a result a few hundred thousand families lose their health care subsidies.
It’s a trap disguised as a benefit. Listen to the promises of Old Bernie and you will hear much the same; free this and that ignoring the true cost and not telling people the truth about who will pay.
Ask the right questions when you are faced with political rhetoric from any source. When you jump on a bandwagon because you are told what you want to hear and not the whole truth and consequences, seems to me you are pretty much a fool.
