Full title: Rude Awakening for Federal Way Woman Who Got Shout-Out From President Cant Afford Obamacare Policy After All
Recognized by President: Jessica Sanford of Federal Way.
OLYMPIA, Nov. 17.Jessica Sanford, the Federal Way woman who got a shout-out from President Obama last month with her fan letter for the Affordable Care Act, got a rather rude awakening last week. Turns out she doesnt qualify for a tax credit after all.
At least thats what the letter said that she got from the state. Now she says her dream of affordable health insurance has gone poof. She cant afford it. Shell have to go without. Im really terribly embarrassed, she says. It has completely turned around on me. I mean, completely.
Chalk it up to a bollixed-up state website that apparently still has major problems. Originally it said Sanford and her child would get a whopping tax credit that would reduce their total premium to $169 a month. Now the state is telling her it goofed twice and she has to pay full ticket.
Obama related Sanfords story in remarks from the Rose Garden last Oct. 21: I recently received a letter from a woman named Jessica Sanford in Washington state, and heres what she wrote. I am a single mom, no child support, self-employed, and I havent had health insurance for 15 years because it is too expensive. My son has ADHD and requires regular doctor visits, and his meds alone cost $250 a month. I have had an ongoing tendinitis problem due to my line of work that I havent had treated. Now, finally, we get to have coverage because of the ACA for $169 a month. I was crying the other day when I signed up. So much stress lifted.

Failure- there’s your ‘Federal Way’.

New definition of a conservative:
A conservative is a former liberal who had their excellent, affordable health insurance cancelled and then found out they couldn’t afford to buy an Obamacare policy because they didn’t qualify for subsidies.
In other words, a conservative is a former liberal mugged by Obamacare.
The true believers can't be swayed. But the liberals and moderates who previously went eeny, meeny, miny, moe at the polling booth are gonna get riled up. And that might be enough for a GOP senate majority in 2014.
I ran that through the translator and this is what came out.
"Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me.Please don't audit me."
Too late: self-employed individuals are at risk for audit. If she's saying her income is $49K, it's likely that it's actually $60K, if not higher.
Heh. I got “maybe he’ll bring me flowers!”
You have to do these things or it is a major mess come tax time. And an audit is much worse.
And, during this first year, without employers being involved, there is no way for the government to document your actual income.
Accordingly, the income entry is on the "Honor System"...
Looking back on my past thru today's glasses, I could easily have been diagnosed as having ADHD starting in the 5th grade...
Due to family issues, my straight A's up to that point began to decline but at least I wasn't subjected to being drugged out of my teenage years......
What? She thought she was important to her dear leader?
