When my mom emigrated to the US, I decided to get her health insurance. There was no government-run healthcare.gov Web site to wrestle with. I just looked for policies at EHealthInsurance.com, a privately run site that allowed me to choose from a variety of individual policies (I could have chosen a dozen other ways to find insurance too.) I got my mom her policy, and she was covered! The only catch: Pre-existing conditions would not be covered for nine months.
Fast-forward to now, and my mom’s premiums are soaring because of Obamacare. But, more importantly, I would not be able to sign up my mom for health insurance whenever I choose. Thanks to the government’s new stranglehold on health insurance, individuals will not be able to buy health insurance between April and November of this year. This is the countdown that you see at EHealthInsurance.com:
Miss that deadline, and the “Affordable” “Care” Act will not provide “care”. At any price.
The Democrats’ advice to people who want to buy insurance between April and November? Die quickly.
