Throughout history 7 has been an almost magical number, even termed "lucky 7".
Maybe 7's luck just ran out.
Especially if your name is Barack Obama.
The folks at Heritage offer this recap and assessment of Obamacare.
In the 2 years since the passage of Obamacrap, there have been 7 failures directly tied to this law.
An addendum to the "no child health insurance left behind" comment, there are a few states (such as Georgia) where child only health insurance can be sold. The problem, the policies are not true major medical.
Parents can buy a child only health insurance plan in Georgia as long as they are willing to either buy a limited benefit basic health insurance plan, or a short term medical plan that is only good for 6 months.
Either of these options is fine as long as your child does not become seriously ill or has a major accident.
These items get very little play in the media since they directly affect employers and only indirectly impact individuals and families. Still, this is just another example of what some may believe was good intentions gone awry.
Seems to me this is yet another case of government interference.
PCIP, the high risk pool substitute was actually a good idea. Had Obamacare created this plan and stopped there we would be much better off.
But Obama and company wanted something bigger. Something grand. Something regal.
The number 7 also has other associations.
The 7 dwarfs. 7 deadly sins.
Maybe Obamacare isn't such a BFD any more.
Perhaps 7 will now be known as an unlucky number.
At least if your name is Obama.
