Anything that falls within the rapidly expanding purview of Big Government is subject to liberals’ social engineering schemes. In light of ObamaCare, this includes the healthcare sector. For example, liberals want to advance marriage only for homosexuals; traditional marriage is the foundation of the family, which results in productive, self-sufficient citizens unlikely to rely on the government. Consequently, we read that Aaron Cassara and Nona Willis Aronowtiz of Brooklyn may be forced to divorce to get health insurance:
“After Obamacare has rolled out, we realized that we would save thousands of dollars if we got divorced,” Aronowitz said.
The issue for Aronowitz and Cassara is that together as family of only two, they make more than the $62,000 level to qualify for subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. But if they lived together unmarried, they would qualify for the subsidies and could literally save hundreds of dollars a month on their health care.
A single person can qualify for subsidies if they make less than $46,000 a year. …
Critics of the Affordable Care Act have called the pricey decision the couple faces the “marriage penalty.”
It will take a generation to untangle all the various ways ObamaCare will have helped to destroy our society.
