He provided two examples of costs for families in the average income range:
“A family of four making $59,000 a year has to pay $5,000 for health insurance. Then they’re going to get an average deductible of $2,600. A family making $71,000 has to pay $6,000 and pay a deductible of $600 per person for that policy. That’s not affordable. That’s why people are not signing up. Obamacare is not affordable.”
Laszewski also pointed out the problems with enrollment numbers:
“I think the administration will claim early in April that they will have enrolled 6 million people. That’s where they’re headed. Only about 5 million of those will pay for it based on the carriers of who is paying, who isn’t. Based on those numbers, only about 25% of the people who are eligible for subsidies will sign up by March 31st. That means 75% of the people will not sign up. Are the Democrats going into November finding 75% of the people eligible for subsidy, in fact, haven’t signed up? That’s the political problem he’s got. This thing is a hardship.”
He also mentioned the newest “hardship exemptions” – the 14th of which seems to “cover everything imaginable.”
“It is unaffordable for most of these families. and he’s not going fine them. That’s going to continue to undermine the whole program.”
