Anyone with half a brain could see this one coming. Joe Biden wants to make permanent the temporary Obamacare subsidy increases passed as part of COVID relief. Of course he does. That’s because the motto of the Democrat Party is never let a good crisis go to waste. Never mind that the price tag of the temporary increase is $20 billion and the cost of making the increases permanent will be far higher and ultimately prove unsustainable.
The Biden administration is taking other steps to boost Obamacare enrollment – spending $100 million on marketing, lowering the maximum enrollees have to pay out of pocket, and seeking to lift the income cap on eligibility. Try as he might, Biden won’t succeed.
This is because Obamacare’s problems are too numerous and insurmountable. Because of Obamacare requirements like preexisting conditions coverage and delinking premiums from risk, Obamacare has doubled the cost of individual health insurance policies. Obamacare deductibles are so high, many people cannot afford to use their policies for medical services. Over half of U.S. counties are down to one or two Obamacare insurers. Despite improvements under Trump, the Obamacare exchanges in 2021 are still one-third less competitive than the individual market was before Obamacare was implemented. Obamacare enrollees don’t have access to the best doctors and hospitals. Medical bankruptcies are still high despite all the promises Obamacare was the magic answer to that problem.
There is no end to the problems with Obamacare. It’s just not working. As my Obamacare Truth Squad said ten years ago, Obamacare is a disaster in every possible way. No wonder 62 percent of people surveyed would keep their employer coverage and only 10 percent would pick Obamacare if they lost their job. Obamacare enrollment is still stuck at around 11 or 12 million. Sweeten the deal all you want, you will never get to the 21 million promised when they were selling the Obamacare bill of goods to the country. This turkey still won’t fly, and never will.
