  •  What about the working poor? (0+ / 0-)

    What about the five member carpet crew whose boss is hoping the 20 year old van or truck lasts another year? What about the framing crew that uses a circular saw with guards removed because they can't afford a jamb saw? What about the tile crew that has to use a super soaker because the water pump on their wet saw went bad? I KNOW people like that and under the ACA, there is never going to be an employer mandate but the penalties will still apply. It's deeply ironic to me that a bunch of middle and upper middle class Americans think that 29 percent mostly working poor in red states = a successful program, when the most they know about the working poor is what kind of job they did painting their homes or trimming their hedges. What money exactly are they going to use to buy insurance? How is the father who had to put off the heating bill during the cold snap last week in order to buy formula going to find the extra cash to spend another more than 500 bucks per month on a crappy insurance policy? Guess they should have had the good sense to be born to parents who could have sent them to college.
