quote: The Obamacare Application By Eliana Johnson March 13, 2013 4:03pm
An Associated Press report yesterday, which Wesley Smith noted below, indicated that filling out the government’s application for Obamacare — a draft version of which is now available — could be “as daunting as doing your taxes.”
The application itself runs 15 pages for a family of three. The draft questionnaire that will be used to determine eligibility for subsidized insurance, composed by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services, runs 61 pages.
The AP’s conclusion is ( LINK)apt: “The idea that picking a health insurance plan could be as simple as shopping on the Internet is starting to look like wishful thinking.”
