In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”

Kipling, The Gods of the Copybook Headings

 

 

The ongoing debacle that is ObamaCare just keeps rolling on:

 

 

OLYMPIA, Nov. 17.—Jessica Sanford, the Federal Way woman who got a shout-out from President Obama last month with her fan letter for the Affordable Care Act, got a rather rude awakening last week. Turns out she doesn’t qualify for a tax credit after all.

At least that’s what the letter said that she got from the state. Now she says her dream of affordable health insurance has gone poof. She can’t afford it. She’ll have to go without. “I’m really terribly embarrassed,” she says. “It has completely turned around on me. I mean, completely.”

Chalk it up to a bollixed-up state website that apparently still has major problems. Originally it said Sanford and her child would get a whopping tax credit that would reduce their total premium to $169 a month. Now the state is telling her it goofed – twice – and she has to pay full ticket. There may even be a third goof involved: At least one health-insurance broker says she may qualify for a tax credit after all, albeit a small one. Officials at the state Healthplanfinder website could not be contacted Sunday night. But it just goes to show that even in the state of Washington, which has earned national kudos for a health-insurance exchange that seems to function better than the dysfunctional federal website, there are big, big problems.

“They have to own up to what is going on,” Sanford says. “They have to fix it. They can’t just go around and say this is working great. In my opinion they ought to shut it down and just get all of it straightened out.”

Go here to Washington Wire to read the rest.  People who were just fine with ObamaCare robbing Peter to pay Paul are learning, to their chagrin, that they are in the Peter category not in the Paul category, and boy are they ticked!  Cue Ben Franklin:

Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other.”

  1. Yes, We Can!

    Approximately 4,200,000 Americans lost their health b/c of ObamaCare.

    Hope and change!

    Social justice!!!!!

    Suppose you were a liberal. And, suppose you were an idiot. But, I repeat myself.

  2. When I see this post headline I think it must be something to do with Pope Francis. He has discovered he is Peter, the rock upon which… or he has discovered that we are all Peter, or…
