This simply proves that whenever you hear politicians, especially noted liars, tout some amazing story of success as a result of their policies, there is a good chance they’re making it up.
From the Weekly Standard:
“But days, just really three days after she was mentioned by the president, Jessica Sanford started having problems, she was receiving letters from the Washington state health exchange,” reports CNN. “The first letter telling her that tax credit was reduced, therefore, increasing the cost of her health care plan and the, take a look at this, then she received a letter just last week telling her that her tax credit had been taken away all together. Show you another document here, showing what the tax credit worked out to be… zero dollars according to this document that was provided to us by Jessica Sanford. She describes all of this as a roller coaster ride. Now she says she can’t afford insurance in Washington state because of the new developments.“
This is the scenario that comes to mind every time I hear a mindless liberal pundit espouse the lie that “Obamacare gives more Americans access to quality, affordable healthcare.” No, it doesn’t. It gives them access to a poorly designed, dysfunctional government website that miscalculates taxpayer handouts leaving them with overpriced plans that are sub-par.
The one crucial detail all these liberal do-gooders overlook is that Americans still have to actually pay for the grossly overpriced health plan they can now, apparently, access. That is where the “hope and change” comes to a grinding halt.
