Full title: Rude Awakening for Federal Way Woman Who Got Shout-Out From President Cant Afford Obamacare Policy After All
Recognized by President: Jessica Sanford of Federal Way.
OLYMPIA, Nov. 17.Jessica Sanford, the Federal Way woman who got a shout-out from President Obama last month with her fan letter for the Affordable Care Act, got a rather rude awakening last week. Turns out she doesnt qualify for a tax credit after all.
At least thats what the letter said that she got from the state. Now she says her dream of affordable health insurance has gone poof. She cant afford it. Shell have to go without. Im really terribly embarrassed, she says. It has completely turned around on me. I mean, completely.
Chalk it up to a bollixed-up state website that apparently still has major problems. Originally it said Sanford and her child would get a whopping tax credit that would reduce their total premium to $169 a month. Now the state is telling her it goofed twice and she has to pay full ticket.
Obama related Sanfords story in remarks from the Rose Garden last Oct. 21: I recently received a letter from a woman named Jessica Sanford in Washington state, and heres what she wrote. I am a single mom, no child support, self-employed, and I havent had health insurance for 15 years because it is too expensive. My son has ADHD and requires regular doctor visits, and his meds alone cost $250 a month. I have had an ongoing tendinitis problem due to my line of work that I havent had treated. Now, finally, we get to have coverage because of the ACA for $169 a month. I was crying the other day when I signed up. So much stress lifted.

Well, that’s what she gets for kissing the Fuhrer’s ass. Sniveling little boot licker.
For some reason I don't think she's being truthfull.......

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA SNORT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA SNORT
ResultsThat's $400 per month after the subsidy. I'm very surprised her budget is so tight she can't afford $400 a month on $49K per year.
The information below is about subsidized exchange coverage. Note that subsidies are only available for people purchasing coverage on their own in the exchange (not through an employer). Depending on your state's eligibility criteria, you or some members of your family may qualify for Medicaid.
- Household income in 2014:
- 316% of poverty level
- Maximum % of income you have to pay for the premium, if eligible for a subsidy:
- Health Insurance premium in 2014 (for a silver plan, before tax credit):
- $5,755 per year
- You could receive a government tax credit subsidy of up to:
- $1,100 per year
(which covers 19% of the overall premium)
- Amount you pay for the premium:
- $4,655 per year
(which equals 9.5% of your household income and covers 81% of the overall premium)
And this is just the sign-up-for-a-policy issue .... wait until she has to deal with them on actual health care and hopefully, it won't be a life/death issue. Some people (libs/progs/Dems) never learn ..... this Obamabot still believes in the ACA and says "I am a big Obama fan".
Some people never learn. This doofus is one of them.
Uh-oh! She thinks she going to have to pay a penalty of $95. Wait until she finds out her penalty is $500. The penalty is $95 or 1% of her salary, which on her $50,000 salary is $500.
Where is the child’s father? When morality goes, the nation is doomed.
$400/ month for what? If the deductible is high, then it could be likely that continuing to pay cash out of pocket is preferred to cash out of pocket plus $400/month down the toilet.
Come to think of it the Kaiser calc is for the Silver plan. She signed up for a Gold plan (lower co-payments and deductibles). Maybe that's some significantly higher number.
Hmmm...maybe ADHD is inherited.

“Stupid is as stupid does”
Nietzsche once wrote:
God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. Yet his shadow still looms. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?By that he meant that nobody believes in God any more. So we inflate people like Obama and regard them as living gods. Just because people have lost faith in traditional religions doesn't mean they have no belief system. It actually means they'll believe in anything.
Jessica Sanford is the poster girl for what is wrong with America. Seeking it all, the single mom has nothing. She is in the long haul, a dysfunctional societal drag
I don’t know if she was arrested for anything...but....GUILTY!
