Heh: Word ‘free’ quietly disappears from Obamacare website
   

By Doug Powers  •  September 30, 2013 11:19 AM


If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free. – P.J. O’Rourke
 *****


In the retail industry this kind of thing is called “bait and switch”:

Before mid-September, a section on Healthcare.gov had this: “Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?”

After mid-September, that became this without mention of the change: “Where can I get low-cost care in my community?”



At some point I predict the word “affordable” will also be removed from the “Affordable Care Act,” which then become the “‘Ok So It’s Expensive and You Can’t Keep Your Old Plan or Doctor But Shut Up Because We Know What’s Best’ Care Act.”

I doubt that the majority of the 'low information voters' are able to read anyway! :beer:
