Obamacare's answer to this is to expand the income level qualifying for Medicaid and put another 20 million on it, with the same pretense about being "covered."
At the same time, as Dennis Smith, former Director of Medicaid at HHS, points out, the new qualifying structure of Medicaid has the same characteristics as did welfare that led to wholesale breakdown of black families.
An individual earning $10,800 qualifies for Medicaid. For two individuals, that is $21,600. But qualifying income for a family of two is $20, 107. So efficient incentives are built in to discourage marriage among low-income earners, a reality in all likelihood already contributing to their shaky economic status.
The House repeal of Obamacare was not theater. It was reality TV.
The follow up act must be to reform health care with real freedom and capitalism.
