ObamaCare Clusterfuck: "Every Day Low Price" Exchange PR boards the #FAIL boat after just one day
Politico looks at yesterday's
propaganda long-awaited report from the administration on ObamaCare pricing:
Consumers may have to dig a little [what does "a little" mean to you? Is it different from what it means to a Politico writer?] deeper into their wallets to pay for health care in the Obamacare insurance exchanges, according to a new analysis by Avalere Health.
The study of six states suggests that consumers could face steep cost-sharing requirements — like co-payments, co-insurance and deductibles — layered on top of their monthly premiums.
The health law sets exchange enrollees’ maximum annual out-of-pocket costs at $6,350. But many people won’t get near that limit, and deductibles for typical exchange plans can run twice as high as the average employer-sponsored plan.
The study also suggests exchange enrollees could see higher drug co-pays and co-insurance than those in employer-sponsored plans
Walmart has cheap stuff, too, just like the administration's PR says ObamaCare does. And nobody wants to shop there any more. And why?
Leave aside that Walmart's business model of beating down its employees makes for a depressing atmosphere and rotten service; people aren't shopping at Walmart because stuff isn't on the shelves.
And so with ObamaCare. The stuff isn't on the shelves.*
I mean, is it possible there's a reason the administration's PR geniuses are focusing on price first, with value a long, long way behind?
NOTE * Ya know what I think? I think Walmart needs a mandate for people to shop there.
