Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

NYT tells us more bad stuff that will result from ObamaCare

As a follow-up to my previous post, the NYT is reporting even more negative fallout from the passage of ObamaCare.  Excerpt:

William Mann of Pittsburgh earns just enough to get by. He is 46, doesn’t own a car, hasn’t taken a vacation in three years and hasn’t had health insurance for most of his adult life.

He is just the kind of person who should benefit from the health care overhaul, and he is, in fact, eligible for heavily subsidized insurance that will cost him an estimated $1,845 a year, while the government contributes about $2,756.

But Mr. Mann says he still can’t afford it. He lives too close to the edge, and won’t be buying insurance, even though he will face a fine under a provision called the individual mandate, which penalizes most Americans who don’t buy coverage starting in 2014. The requirement is one of the most controversial aspects of the overhaul.

“I just can’t put that kind of money out for a ‘maybe’ — maybe I’ll get sick and use it,” said Mr. Mann, who makes just over $25,000 a year as an administrative assistant at a small wine distribution company. “That’s a lot of money.”

What?  I thought this was supposed to be a panacea for lower-income Americans?  You mean it’s not “free”?  Dude never gets sick, and yet he’s about to get penalized for having the temerity to…um…not get sick.

Boy, it sure is a good thing we’ve got the watchdogs in the media to tell us the ramifications of passing horrendous laws after said laws are passed.  You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d swear that the MSM was more interested in giving that miserable failure of a president any kind of signature policy win, and less interested in doing their d#mned jobs!

Nope…no liberal media bias!
