Reality of Obamacare trumps propaganda for another family

Steve Benen has yet another example of what’s becoming an increasingly common story this morning about the real world impact of the Affordable Care Act. For all of its flaws and imperfections, the new law is making quality insurance available to thousands upon thousands of people who would be utterly out of luck otherwise.

The post tells the story of the Recchi family of Lancaster, Ohio — small business owners who initially didn’t “want any part of Obamacare,” but who now that they’ve gotten through the sign-up hassle, see it as “a godsend.”

    Interesting that you cannot say “millions and millions” will get affordable care. Such is the state of affairs that all will pay unaffordable rates while some few may get some care. It is also interesting that the few can be ID’ed one by one while the millions of us paying inflated insurance prices are ignored.

    Alan, I don’t know about you, but a 400% increase goes waaay beyond just inflated.

    And here is one link on another ill effect of Obamacare. One more company shifting employees to overpriced exchanges because they cannot afford the vastly overpriced increases:

    One more reality for you. Looks like the goal to destroy insurance in this country is bearing fruit. Look for the next bailout here…then for the saftey of citizens the government must run healthcare!
