Jessica Sanford of Washington State did not have health insurance for 15 years because the single mother could not afford it. She was self employed and received no child support so she was on her own.
She went on her state exchange website and signed up. She was told that she qualified for a tax credit and she selected a plan she could afford. She was so excited that she wrote an email to Barack Obama.
I am a single mom, no child support, self-employed. And I haven’t had insurance for 15 years because it’s too expensive. I was crying the other day when I signed up, so much stress lifted. Weekly Standard
Barack Obama used her email at an event.
A funny thing happened on the way to Obamacare for Ms. Sanford. She first received notice that the tax credit quoted was too high and it was reduced which meant she had to pay more of her premium.
Then she received notice that she was not eligible AT ALL for a tax credit. She was responsible for the entire premium.
And that my friends, was an amount that she could not afford.
Now that they have her information and she has selected a plan I am willing to bet she won’t be able to cancel it. She should be able to because she was given incorrect information but that will probably not mean much. Even if they allowed her to cancel her information is on file so if she fails to select another plan she will be taxed for not having one.
She states in the article that for now, she won’t be getting insurance.
Here comes the tax man…
Obamacare is a disaster.
But then again, so is Obama.
Never surrender, never submit.
