‘Sub­stan­dard’ ab­sur­dity from Oba­macare

The Washington Times Daily - - Editorial -

So what ex­actly is a “sub­stan­dard” health plan un­der Oba­macare? If a plan cov­ers hos­pi­tal bills, doc­tors’ bills — in­clud­ing pre­ven­tive-care vis­its — all sub­ject to a de­ductible, it’s a sub­stan­dard plan un­der Oba­macare. The law says you can’t have a de­ductible for pre­ven­tive care.

If you are a man or woman over the age of 55 and your plan doesn’t cover ma­ter­nity and pre­na­tal care, that plan is con­sid­ered sub­stan­dard. Oba­macare is filled with such ab­surd re­quire­ments.

The word “sub­stan­dard” was care­fully crafted to de­ceive. It’s just more po­lit­i­cal rhetoric from the spin-doc­tor-in-chief, Pres­i­dent Obama.

This is one case where I wish I didn’t have to keep my doc­tor. CHRISTO­PHER S. MOODY Gaithers­burg
