Time for our daily fix of Obamacare fumbles.
After their nauseating tale of the success of the “Obamacare underdog," Politico came to their senses and printed a piece about the hurdles ahead of this massive piece of law.
Of the “six big danger points” they discussed, a few were particularly damning.
First, people don’t realize that now that the March 31 “official” deadline has passed, they can’t get insurance for the rest of the year. Even if they end up sick and needing coverage, Obama has stonewalled Americans from seeking care.
Secondly, Americans heard the $95 penalty for not buying insurance and figured, “Eh, not so bad." They didn’t realize that it was $95 or 1 percent of their income – whichever is higher. In other words, if you make any more than $9,500 a year, you are in for a terrible shock when tax time rolls around.
