Michael Hiltzik takes a closer at the Wall Street Journal‘s Obamacare horror story — here.
The most prominent example of Obamacare victimization being offered at the moment comes from Edie Littlefield Sundby of San Diego, a businesswoman who related in a Wall Street Journal op-ed earlier this week how Obamacare is threatening her life by depriving her of access to her cancer doctors. . . .
Well: not exactly. Read on.
And here is Hiltzik on Deborah Cavallaro, the hard-working Los Angeles real estate agent . . .
. . . who has been featured prominently on a round of news shows lately, talking about how badly Obamacare is going to cost her when her existing plan gets canceled and she has to find a replacement.
Well: not exactly that, either.
Did the President err in stating so flatly that no one would have to change plans or doctors? He did.
Is the situation remotely as bad as Fox News et al would have you think? It is not.
Obamacare is good for the country as a whole, and good for the overwhelming majority of us individually. Maybe even good for Edie Littlefield Sundby and Deborah Cavallaro.
