Walgreens Hops on the ObamaCare Bandwagon
Well, well, well. Check out the Walgreens website. It looks like a poster for ObamaCare.
Some quotes from the site:
"The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law in 2010 to improve Americans' access to healthcare. It expands insurance benefits and was designed to reduce the cost of healthcare for the average American."
" The new healthcare law expands access to individuals and families who have not had or could not afford health insurance."
"The biggest effect of the ACA is that people who previously couldn't afford or qualify for coverage will now be able to sign up for health insurance."
"Tax credits, expanded eligibility requirements for Medicaid and subsidies will take effect in 2014, helping those in need pay for health insurance."
"Under the new law insurance companies are also prevented from charging people who need more healthcare, such as the elderly, pregnant women, and those with pre-existing conditions."
The Hill reports:
Walgreens and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) launched a website Wednesday and promised to distribute brochures about ObamaCare at Walgreens stores around the country.
ObamaCare is an overstuffed bureaucratic mess that will raise costs, decrease quality of care, and bring government overreach to new levels. Every day, we wake up to a new report about how the law is falling apart. Whether it's delaying the mandate requirement for businesses so as to avoid enormous backlash against Democrats in the mid-terms (and hence choosing not to enforce a component of the law without the consent of Congress), significantly rising costs of subsidies, an honor system to verify eligibility for subsidies (hello, fraud)--the law is in distress, to say the least.
Walgreens, wake up.
