Students who voted for Obama react to losing their cheap private health care plan

Mysterious William sent me this story from Campus Reform.

Excerpt:

Students at Bowie State University assailed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Thursday after administrators cancelled a low cost school-wide health care plan due to new regulations in the law.

Many students told Campus Reform that the now cancelled plans, which provided coverage for just $50 per semester, were the only insurance they could afford.

“I can’t afford anything right now,” one said. “I can’t even afford my loans.”

“We don’t have that money,” said another. “We can barely afford books.”

Several students said that they felt they had been let down.

“It’s stupid and it’s Obama’s fault,” one said. “You haven’t done anything, Obama, and I’m disappointed in you.”

“What it was hyped up to be, was that it was supposed to solve a lot of problems and help a lot of people, and its not really doing that,” said another.

Many students had no idea the plans had been canceled, which was announced only in an email to their school addresses.

One of the students in the video rightly chastises Obama for not doing his homework on health care policy before putting through a law that doesn’t make health care better. But honestly it’s the students who haven’t done their homework – at least the ones who voted for Obama in 2012. Because these things were all known at the time. I was blogging about them all the way through 2009 to election day in 2012. And not my opinions but studies showing what the impact would be on health care costs, job creation, and so on. There is no way this plan could work, and anyone who was paying attention knew that. It’s sad for the students now, but maybe it’s a good thing for them to learn their lesson early.

  1. I don’t know if anyone is going to learn a lesson from this! I think Americans have their heads stuck in the sand so deep, they can’t get them out. I was at Lowe’s the other night, and the employees were arguing with their manager, saying they already had worked their 29 hours, and Lowe’s didn’t want to give them benefits so they had to go home. I said, “Did you get your hours cut because of Obamacare?” Yes, they got their hours cut. But no it was not because of Obamacare, it was because of their evil employer, Lowe’s! I tried to explain, but one young woman who was now working only 29 hours a week said she was grateful for the health care from Obama. She literally sold her future down the river for health care that would have been cheaper before Obamacare. I read one young man who made $11,500 a year was shopping Obama care, and found out it would cost $190 a month! Before ObamaCare he could have got the same plan for $60 a month. People are insane. God bless you. Susan Fox

  2. But sadly not all students know. I post a graph that criticizes the spending of welfare and it is college students that are defending Obama Care. There are still a lot that have to learn.
