As the conservative lies about the ACA die one by one, the latest meme has been to trot out people who love their crappy insurance, but instead saw their policies canceled by the sinister Obamacare machine. It turns out though, that some of these people were lying or sadly misinformed or BOTH!
Meet Gail Roach of Pittsburgh. While the saboteurs cheered that the Obamacare website had a rocky beginning, Gail simply called in to the ACA hotline to ask for someone to help her figure out her options. And what happened next was nothing short of amazing. Gail had been paying $509.00 per month for insurance through her retirement healthcare package. She’s also type 2 diabetic, which increased her premiums.
BUT WAIT FOR IT…
According to WTAE:
Through the Affordable Care Act, she found a policy offering a monthly premium at only $70.
After cashing in on a tax credit and taking advantage of a feature called the Cost Sharing Benefit, Roach saw her premium drop to a measly $1.11 a month.
