Did Obamacare come with seatbelts?

Some people may hope so, as the ride gets really bumpy.

NYT does not offer already-disgruntled Obamacare patrons victims a life preserver.

“As you can see on our map of those counties, an Anthem departure could leave coverage gaps in substantial parts of Georgia, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio and Colorado, as well as smaller holes in other states. In places where no insurance company offers plans, there will be no way for Obamacare customers to use subsidies to buy health plans.

Without an option for affordable coverage, they would become exempt from the health law’s mandate to obtain coverage. A result could be large increases in the number of Americans without health insurance.”

So far, no carrier has come forward publicly to say it will serve the counties in Tennessee that Humana is leaving.

Obamacare is already in critical condition. Yet all we hear from MSM in response to alternatives or repeal plans is “but people will lose their healthcare.” Really? It’s hard to mandate something that is not affordable or available.

    I like your last sentence, “you can’t mandate something that doesn’t exist”.

    If the repukes can’t get their act together, the whole collapse of O’Care will be blamed on Trump.
