WHEC-NY: New Yorkers Struggling To Afford ObamaCare Premiums, Deductibles
http://www.theminorityreportblog.com ^ | march 30, 2014

Posted on 03/30/2014 12:43:50 PM PDT by lowbridge

LECLAIR: “We’ve heard from a lot of WHEC Facebook friends complaining that they will face a fine if they don’t sign up for health insurance. But many say they can’t afford the premiums or deductibles, and it would be cheaper to stay uninsured and pay the penalty. This free clinic at St. Josephs’ Neighborhood Center always has a steady stream of patients. The director says the Affordable Care Act will never put them out of business. Even though everyone is supposed to have insurance now and their own doctor, there will always be people who need care but can’t afford it. I’m told close to half of the 1,100 patients that come to this clinic don’t qualify for public assistance, but don’t have the money for premiums or deductibles either.”

WAGNER: “And our population is those who are above Medicaid eligibility are working and just don’t have the income to be ale to afford employer based insurance, and now can’t afford the exchange insurance. We will keep them here.”

SCHRADER: “The bottom line is the only number we’re looking at.”

LECLAIR: “Marian Schrader is a navigator paid by the state to help people with the sign-up process. She says that sometimes when people hear how much the plans cost, they decide not to enroll.”

SCHRADER: “I’m letting them know that there’s a fine, but I also understand that if you can’t buy insurance — I mean, are you going to buy insurance, or are you going to buy food? You’re going to buy food.”

Well mayor Wilhelm DeBaalsio should just force NY millionaires to open up free healthcare clinics or pay heavy tax fines. Its the hardcore DemRat way of enterprise...

No sympathy from me, they did their part to be sure the rest of us got stuck with those ruinous policies, too-I hope they enjoy it. Let those in NYC complain to their new nanny mayor...

I'm with you... whatever Obama does to them, they 'earned'. Good people can just leave ... go to a better State.

Upstaters are generally a good bunch, WHEC is a Rochester station... BUT... more conservatives are leaving there, and it's trending more liberal as (for example) my liberal High School friends stay there, and we sane people leave.

So, screw them. They voted for this s**t, they can eat the sandwich.

Because the next phase of Obama Care will have higher subsidies and you (we) will wind up paying for it..

Its not just New York that’s in this same boat. It’s every FREAK’IN state in the U.S.

NO ONE CAN AFFORD THIS CRAP EXCEPT THOSE WHO ARE EXEMPT FROM IT!

Didn't Michelle Obama say the poor have their priorities wrong? That they should pay for medical care and not buy crap?

hey - don’t “eff” us all - go back and look at the red blue maps - it was just the metro counties that carried the state by population - Dairy/Apple/Grape Land was and IS Conservative

I looked at the maps. In addition to NYC and virtually all of Long Island, Albany, Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester, Binghamton, Ithaca all went for zero. 3.9 mil to 2.2 mil for zero statewide in 2012 so f 3.9 mil of you.
