Sadly, probably not.
Thanks Zakeet. Probably doesn’t go far enough toward carbon emission reduction, reparations, and gun confiscation to suit ‘em.
D.C. names insurance commissioner (to replace the one fired for criticizing Obama...)
WA State claims to have signed up almost 8 thousand for Obamacare and another 48 thousand put on expanded medicaid. That might be the highest percentage of medicaid sign ups in the country. How do you think the state is going to pay for them when the federal subsidy drops out?
That’s when Washington state gets its first income tax.
That is what I am thinking. I did look at that chart again, though and realized that the 48,000 figure is how many WA has eligible for medicaid, not how many have been signed up.
The other thing is that WA State had a problem with its exchange also. The problem was that the software was over estimating the amount of subsidy the insured would receive by $100 per month. So, each and every application that was filled out must be redone by the applicant. No numbers have been announced about how the redo effort is going.
Something else that I have been thinking about is Inslee’s remarks about revisiting the idea of putting all state workers on Obamacare. That could apply to teachers in WA as well because the teachers decided to reject the WEA self insurance plan because it would mean forcing out all other school workers that are currently insured under the same plans as the teachers.
Self-insurance is an exemption under Obamacare.
So true. And 8,000 sign-ups for 0dumb0Care in WA state? Sounds like they (the libturds in WA state) have only another 5 million or so sign-ups to occur. Piece of cake according deranged libturds!
