How to Escape the Horror of Obamacare
Betsy Mccaughey writes at American Spectator:
On Tuesday, Aetna announced it's canceling its Obamacare plans in nearly all states. Count on other major insurers to back out soon.When open enrollment starts November 1, the public will see they're going to have few plans to choose from.
Worse, they're going to be paying lots more for health insurance in 2017 and getting less. Across the country, state insurance departments are announcing double-digit premium hikes, in some places.
The more you know about the demonically named "Affordable Care Act," the less you like. "People who earn too much to qualify for a subsidy will be forced to pay as much as a fifth of their income for health insurance," Mccaughey continues.
In return for this joy, "they’ll get less choice of doctors and hospitals and less prescription drug coverage." Ah, yes. Obama's transformation.
But there is hope beyond this darkness. "Annual enrollment begins eight days before voters go to the polls," Mccaughey writes.
"Donald Trump is vowing to repeal Obamacare. Hillary Clinton is doubling down on keeping and expanding it. Democrats are worried Obamacare sticker shock will have an 11th hour impact on the election."
There is therefore "a way out," according to Mccaughey. "If you don't want Obamacare rammed down your throat, vote Republican in November."
