VIDEO: Students at historically black college complain Obamacare has left them uninsured
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 11/16/2013 11:29:45 AM PST by sunmars

Students at Bowie State University assailed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Thursday after administrators cancelled a low cost school-wide health care plan due to new regulations in the law.

Many students told Campus Reform that the now cancelled plans, which provided coverage for just $50 per semester, were the only insurance they could afford.

“I can’t afford anything right now,” one said. “I can’t even afford my loans.”

“We don’t have that money,” said another. “We can barely afford books.”

Several students said that they felt they had been let down.

“It’s stupid and it’s Obama’s fault,” one said. “You haven’t done anything, Obama, and I’m disappointed in you.”

“What it was hyped up to be, was that it was supposed to solve a lot of problems and help a lot of people, and its not really doing that,” said another.

Many students had no idea the plans had been canceled, which was announced only in an email to their school addresses.

In a statement to Campus Reform, Bowie State said it was confident that Obamacare would fill the void left by the canceled plans.

“Most students are now able to be covered under their parent’s health plans up to age 26 at no additional cost and new affordable coverage is becoming available through the Maryland State Insurance Exchange System,” it read.

Campus Reform conducted the interviews with student Eugene Craig III, who first wrote about canceled plans in an article in the school’s alternative newspaper, The Bulldog Collegian.

That would not stop them from voting Democrat. There is no connection of cause and effect in their heads.

Yeah but if it stops voting for anyone, that’s still a bonus, if it deters them from the polls in the first place its a boon for the GOP.

They’ll blame Whitey. Obamacare is not working due to Whitey’s greed. They will never look in the mirror...never.

Assuming the parents have a health plan......by the way, does anyone know if the federal employees healthcare plan has this up to age 26 provision?

And they can now be put on their parent's policy till they are 26...if their parent's policy wasn't terminated by Obama, or the parent's can afford the astronomical cost of an Obama approved policy.

Obama's name will be a curse in the not to distant future (it already is in my world, but I'm talking about our deteriorating society at large).

Gosh, what a wonderful learning opportunity.

“Teachable Moment”, as the Left says.

Don’t vote for racists who think that running cheap cons and extortion rackets is a way to run the country.

“Most students are now able to be covered under their parent’s health plans up to age 26 at no additional cost and new affordable coverage is becoming available through the Maryland State Insurance Exchange System,” it read.

1. Many of the students have parents (or more likely, a parent) who don't have a family plan. For these kids, the new coverage will be a whole lot more than the $50 a month they were paying.

2. If the parents do have a family plan that will cover kids to age 26, the cost of that plan is going to go up at least enough to cover the cost of covering more adult children, which will be a whole lot more than the $50 a month they were paying. Even with "free" birth control, this will still cost them a whole lot more.

3. Serves them right for being racists and voting for a known communist just because of his skin color.

Many of their parents probably don't have insurance or cannot afford to add the kids to it.

I wonder if it ever occurs to the female students and to other young women that it would have been cheaper to just pay eight bux a month for their birth control instead of changing their whole healthcare plan in order to cover that for them?

It is a shame people were pulled in by a professional con artist like Obama.

I feel sorry for those that are now screwed.

I wish people would have done their homework instead of voting for skittles and rainbows.

You know, I don’t think these women (or men for that matter) have been taught to think for themselves at all. They have fallen into the Marxist’s lair, and it will take them more than a decade to even realize they need to get out.

This is like one of those psy-fi shows where the heroes find themselves in a bar where anything they dream comes true. Outside the whole world is melting down around them.

Unfortunately Buck Rogers and Wilma Dearing are 487 years in the future...

Not sure about Federal employees but Military? Yes you can cover your adult child up to 26 but it is a significant extra cost, a couple hundred bucks a month, 3 months up front. We could not afford it, so daughter lost her coverage.

What the heck do they mean “no additional cost”? Their parents pay for it at Obamacare’s higher premiums.
