In Virginia, the Journal found a healthy 40-year-old nonsmoker can currently get insurance for $63 per month, but will pay at least $193 under Obamacare. Federal subsidies will cover the cost for some. But a Virginian earning more than $33,150 won't get subsidies. He'll have to pay higher insurance prices (or face a fine) and also pay taxes to cover the cost of other citizens' now higher-priced, subsidized coverage.
Under Obamacare, workers face financial penalties even as similar fines are declared too punitive for businesses, the health needs of those living in poverty are made a lower priority than those with higher incomes, and health-conscious citizens may be financially penalized so a perpetually drunk neighbor can obtain lower insurance rates.
Obamacare has always been unworkable. But now its effects are increasingly arbitrary as well.
