Obama can’t afford to tell truth on health care


Obama can't afford to tell truth on health care:

“So while Obama tells us that almost 8 million children lack health insurance, he doesn’t disclose that 5 million of them only lack insurance because they haven’t been enrolled in the available programs. Not only would this fact undermine the urgency of his appeal; it illustrates that even under his ‘universal access’ plan, not everyone would acquire coverage anyway. Indeed, the CBO has estimated that some 17 million would remain uninsured if the Democrats’ plan were implemented.

Yes, there are people who fall through the cracks (Pipes’ words) – mostly those who earn less than $50,000 per year but too much to qualify for government help. When it’s all said and done, there are probably about 8 million of these ‘chronically uninsured,’ who really can’t afford insurance and don’t qualify for help – though they are able to receive emergency room care. And many of these 8 million would be better able to afford coverage if government regulations and mandates hadn’t driven up the costs so much.”
