Posted on 03/30/2014 12:43:50 PM PDT by lowbridge
LECLAIR: Weve heard from a lot of WHEC Facebook friends complaining that they will face a fine if they dont sign up for health insurance. But many say they cant 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 cant afford it. Im told close to half of the 1,100 patients that come to this clinic dont qualify for public assistance, but dont have the money for premiums or deductibles either.
WAGNER: And our population is those who are above Medicaid eligibility are working and just dont have the income to be ale to afford employer based insurance, and now cant afford the exchange insurance. We will keep them here.
SCHRADER: The bottom line is the only number were 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: Im letting them know that theres a fine, but I also understand that if you cant buy insurance I mean, are you going to buy insurance, or are you going to buy food? Youre going to buy food.

F*** New Yorkers. They voted overwhelmingly for the turd in the white house...twice. They deserve everything that he does to them.
New York voted overwhelmingly for the Clown.
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.
And I’m struggling to give a flip.
Cant afford the premium, face a fine in steps perfect single payer plan as planned
But...but....it’s AFFORDABLE! Nancy Pelosi SAID SO!!
So, screw them. They voted for this s**t, they can eat the sandwich.
Oh, and Harry Reid insists these people and WHEC news are all liars.
Hey you dumb a$$ NYers how is the hope and change working for ya?
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!
I hope their suffering intensifies exponentially.
Bah. Obama says just cancel your phone and cable/sat TV service.
More accurately, the slavery that Obama voters deserve.
So do we for letting them have their way for so long.
Let them eat cake.
