Exchanges:

The Congressional Budget Office estimated that in 2019 another 3 million people will turn to the insurance exchanges due to employers dropping coverage.  But with employer affordable health coverage applying only to singles, this number would be far greater, resulting in higher insurance costs to the government and bigger federal budget deficits.”

The country does not need ObamaCare to solve the relatively limited problem of restrictive insurance coverage for pre-existing health conditions…   ObamaCare included $5 billion in new funding to subsidize insurance for the millions who were supposedly sick and without options. Far from the alleged 65 million people, only 77,877 had signed up for the subsidized Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan by June 30 of this year.

The Supreme Court decided to treat the individual mandate as a tax instead of a penalty, partly on the basis that the mandate would not impose an ‘exceedingly heavy burden’… [But] Low-income families would be hit the hardest, as the tax would be as high as 10 percent of income.
