The Onion shares what Obamacare really offers newly insured: blinding rage for insurance companies

3:34 pm by | 0 Comments

Maine tries free market health insurance systemThe Onion is at it again. This time, not targeting the Obamacare servers, but instead the opportunity Obamacare offers the newly insured “to become blindingly enraged at health insurance companies for the first time in their lives.” Best quote:

“I’ve been working two to three jobs without once qualifying for health insurance for as long as I can remember, and now for the first time ever, I’ll be able to fill out reams and reams of indecipherable forms and paperwork that will frustrate and anger me in ways I could never possibly imagine,” said Oregon man David Haddock, adding that he now has access to nearly 10 insurance companies that have staffs that will try to deny him benefits at every turn and make his life a living hell.
