At least 1.4 million people in 32 states will lose the Obamacare plan they have now, according to state officials contacted by Bloomberg. That’s largely caused by Aetna Inc., UnitedHealth Group Inc. and some state or regional insurers quitting the law’s markets for individual coverage.
Sign-ups for Obamacare coverage begin next month. Fallout from the quitting insurers has emerged as the latest threat to the law, which is also a major focal point in the U.S. presidential election. While it’s not clear what all the consequences of the departing insurers will be, interviews with regulators and insurance customers suggest that plans will be fewer and more expensive, and may not include the same doctors and hospitals.
It may also mean that instead of growing in 2017, Obamacare could shrink. As of March 31, the law covered 11.1 million people; an Oct. 13 S&P Global Ratings report predicted that enrollment next year will range from an 8 percent decline to a 4 percent gain.The press pushed a false narrative of a broken health care system so that Democrats could put in place a program that would break that health care system.
Way to go.
The Tea Party was absolutely correct on this one. And what good did that do? The media smeared them as racist, mocked them as ignorant, and ridiculed them for not knowing tea-bagger is a porn term for what Lewinsky did to Clinton.
Being right in this nation no longer matters.
But that is getting us nowhere. We must remove this cancer from our health care and our freedom.
The only way to get rid of Obamacare is to vote for Trump. Johnson won't. Stein won't. Only Trump.
