Some “train wreck!” A study guaranteed to make right wing Republican zealots gnash their teeth (don’t you love it when that happens?), your state’s online exchanges will provide better benefits than 98 percent of the individual plans sold today. This, according to by Healthpocket.com, a reputable insurance rating site.
Not only that, but–get ready for it–individuals with incomes up to $45,960 and families of four up to $92,200 will see significant cost discounts. It will be possible, for example, for a family of four making $40,000 and paying around $1000 a month for insurance now to buy better coverage for $165 a month.
Of course, this coverage is not as good as … say … Senator Ted Cruz’s sweet congressional insurance plan, but it’s a huge step in the right direction. Funny how Obamacare is “socialism” to Cruz and his wing nut allies in the U.S. House but their own insurance is not.
As a wise man once said, “Consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.”
