Thanks to the [un]Affordable Care Act, thousands of Indiana residents will have their insurance coverage dropped–making affordable health care to go further out of reach–because those plans don’t meet the federal government’s new policy requirements. According to the Daily Caller:
Notifications have been sent out to 30,000 residents of Indiana informing them their health insurance plans no longer meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and will be cancelled at the end of this year.
Indiana joins Virginia (the hardest hit with 250,000 cancellations), Kentucky, Colorado, North Carolina, New Mexico, Tennessee and Maine, among the more than dozen states and the District of Columbia that are experiencing another round of health insurance cancellations this year.
This is just what happens when we hand over powers to the federal government that they shouldn’t have. As the government grows, our freedoms become fewer and further between.
No matter what the Democrat cheerleaders say, Obamacare is totally unconstitutional, and states have every right to nullify it, if they so choose. We shouldn’t be subject to the whims and fancies of a megalomaniac federal government.
As the government continues to take over the medical industry, we can expect healthcare to get more and more expensive as the quality of the care itself dwindles.
