Darcy W's reply to my letter says Obamacare is a "wonderful program with free wellness checks, lower costs, tax credits and subsidies."
Tell that to Emile, a 39-year-old woman with lupus whose cancelled health insurance went from $52 a month to $373 on Obamacare.
Darcy also criticizes our governor for refusing to implement Obamacare since it is "at no cost to Indiana for the first three years and then only 10 percent." She doesn't acknowledge this applies only to Medicaid and then only to those newly eligible and not to those who were eligible before Obamacare was passed.
Some deemed "eligible" for Medicaid when trying to sign up are being automatically put on Medicaid regardless of their wishes.
Obamacare initially required all states to expand Medicaid to cover everyone earning less than 138 percent of poverty level, which is a 30 percent increase in Medicaid rolls.
Indiana would have huge welfare rolls for years to come.
