It must have pained the New York Times to publish its article about how many ObamaCare customers fear to make use of their taxpayer-subsidized, hyper-regulated benefits because the deductibles are so high. It's a devastating indictment of the Affordable Care Act, cutting deep into the very small number of Americans who actually find the ACA somewhat useful.
Not only does ObamaCare have low approval ratings from the American public at large, it doesn't even score well among the group it was nominally intended to benefit most directly, the uninsured. We hear a lot from ObamaCare defenders about how all of the expense, confusion, and abject failure of the program are worthwhile, because some number of people who formerly lacked insurance now have it. That argument drifts into the stratosphere of lunacy once a rational observer backs out the number of "newly insured" who are actually enrolled in the ancient, insolvent, and inadequate welfare program known as Medicaid, and computes the cost per person who picked up real health insurance due to the ACA - it would have been far cheaper to simply hand each of those people a card that says "get all the medicine you want from any doctor you want, free, for life."
