Millions of Americans fall into the 'coverage gap' where they do not get Medicaid, but are too poor to qualify for federal subsidies on the new insurance exchanges.

Too poor for Obamacare, too stupid not to vote for socialism.
If it is so d@mn bad in Texas, go home to Mexico.
Thanks Red in Blue PA, related:
Medicare is as useful as Linus’s security blanket.
I am also too poor for Obamacare, and I make nearly 6 figures.
The Obamacare “doughnut hole” will trap untold millions in a limbo where they cannot afford the “coverage” offered either because of prohibitively high premiums, or because of “copays” and “deductibles” that make the coverage meaningless, and are virtually the same as being uninsured altogether.
Many will just make the determination that nothing at all is cheaper than trying to comply with the draconian demands of providing a subsidy to others who may well be getting a break not available to themselves. Even facing the possibility of a fine by the IRS for not “participating” in this scheme will not be enough to compel these unfortunates, either too wealthy for Medicare and/or subsidies, or too poor to actually cover the purchase of the fake “coverage” offered under Obamacare-mandated policies, to surrender to the demand, virtually at gunpoint, to get with the program.
Way more stick than carrot.
Express your displeasure, America. Direct your support to the candidate who calls for the program to be ripped up and replaced. End Obamacare, don’t mend Obamacare.
Even though the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut signed this atrocity into law, he will not enforce its provisions, because they are simply too contradictory or too clumsy to carry out.
Medicare? or medicaid?
My brother is one of these. He lost his job of 32 years during one of obamnas “summers of recovery.” He went on unemployment and after about 6 months he found a job as janitor at Food Lion, 9 bucks an hour nd 20 hours a week.He took the job and a cut in his unemployment check. Soon, his unemployment ran out completely leaving him with only the 9 bucks at 20 hours per week.
We went to an obamabot insurance salesman, who is a BIG MAN in the local dim-0 party and been in the insurance business over 50 years. The CHEAPEST policy he could write my brother after figuring all of my brothers info was 347 bucks a month....HOWEVER, IF my brother could get a different job making 2000 MORE per year, he could get a subsidy of 226 bucks per month, leaving his premium at 11 dollars per month. The gubmint would pay the rest, what he DID NOT MENTION was that the subsidy would end after 3 years.
Sorry, that was a typo, my brothers subsidy would be 336 a month, IF he could earn 2000 more per year.
That’s me. I have some not-very-fun medical conditions that really require professional care, and my health is deteriorating because I can neither pay for medical treatment out of my own pocket nor qualify for Medicaid nor pay for Obamacare.
I thought the subsidies were supposed to help the "poor" obtain the insurance. Help me out, here!
Well there are two obvious paths.
1) make more money (still possible for some, even in the Era of Baraq)
2) make less money via joining the underground economy
