Sarah Palin said,

“…America is about to get ‘mugged by reality’ very soon, to paraphrase Irving Kristol.”

“Far from providing more Americans with insurance, Obamacare is ironically hurting the very people it was sold to as some kind of health care savior,” she wrote.

The mugging has begun:

Binns had been trying to navigate the government’s health care website since October to find affordable insurance for her husband, a 60-year-old who has a pre-existing condition and whose job doesn’t offer coverage.

What she finally found for him Monday carries a premium of more than $400 a month and a $5,000 annual deductible.

“How can I pay this kind of money out?” she asked. “It’s going to take at least a second job and praying that I would make enough on a second job just to pay for this health insurance.” …

“I thought this was going to be the miracle for us,” she said, “and it’s not.”

If you think the government is going to deliver a miracle for you, you will almost always be disappointed.
