Surprise: Glitch In Obama’s Signature Legislation To Price Families Out Of Health Insurance


I’m shocked, as I’m sure you are, as well, that there’s yet another “glitch” in Obamacare

(WTOP) Some families could get priced out of health insurance due to what’s being called a glitch in President Barack Obama’s overhaul law. IRS regulations issued Wednesday failed to fix the problem as liberal backers of the president’s plan had hoped.

As a result, some families that can’t afford the employer coverage that they are offered on the job will not be able to get financial assistance from the government to buy private health insurance on their own. How many people will be affected is unclear.

The article goes on to say that this could affect up to 500,000 children, which would mean quite a few adults, as well.

The Obama administration says its hands were tied by the way Congress wrote the law. Officials said the administration tried to mitigate the impact. Families that can’t get coverage because of the glitch will not face a tax penalty for remaining uninsured, the IRS rules said.

Gee, if only someone had read the legislation before it was rammed through using parliamentary tricks and bribes. And, before Obama starts Blaming Others, perhaps he should look at himself, since he signed the legislation, and if he didn’t know about this “glitch”, then shame on him.
