  • Another one of those Republican proposals that Obama and the Left claim don't exist





    Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker wants to give people in his state a way around ObamaCare’s problems.

    He is floating a proposal that would still channel federal subsidies to Wisconsin’s poor and uninsured, but his plan would allow them to purchase coverage directly from the insurer and sidestep the on-line “exchange” created by the Affordable Care Act.

    His idea is getting support, even in the bitterly divided Wisconsin state house. Six Democrats crossed party lines and backed his proposal in the assembly, sending it over to the Senate with a healthy majority.

    Still, before it goes into effect, Walker’s idea would need the blessing of the Obama administration.

    “If they don't approve this, this is ultimately exposing that this isn't really about access and this isn't about affordability,” says Walker. “It's about government playing a heavier hand in these kinds of decisions.”
    No doubt the Left are scrambling around right now trying to find a way to portray this idea as evil, because Scott Walker, that's why.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

    I thought anyone could buy direct from the insurers now and still get subsidies.

      No. Subsidies are only available through the individual FFM (Federally-Facilitated Marketplace) or state exchanges.
