FireDogLake: NO!!! On Obamacare

FireDogLake is a Left-O-Wacky blog, but they get respect for being meticulous (wrong, yes, but meticulous).

They hate ObamaCare.

A middle class family of four making $66,370 will be forced to pay $8,628 per year for insurance. After basic necessities, this leaves them with $8,307 in discretionary income — out of which they would have to cover clothing, credit card and other debt, child care and education costs, in addition to $5,882 in annual out-of-pocket medical expenses for which families will be responsible. Many families who are already struggling to get by would be better off saving the $8,628 in insurance costs and paying their medical expenses directly, rather than being forced to by coverage they can’t afford the co-pays on.

Oh, well. Too bad.

See, this isn't about middle-class families going BK with ObamaCare. This is about power, folks.

And FDL has that covered, too:

Rather than actually helping the poor, this bill is a dangerous and unprecedented step on the road to domination of government by private corporate players who use it to suppress competition and secure their profits — the textbook definition of fascism.

Oh, well. Too bad.
