    Obamacare Website Quietly Deletes Reference to 'Free Health Care' [W:10]

    Obamacare Website Quietly Deletes Reference to 'Free Health Care' | The Weekly Standard

    Even as President Obama and his administration are making a last minute push to encourage enrollment in Obamacare, a quiet change was made on the Healthcare.gov website regarding those who will still not be able to afford coverage after the program kicks in. From at least June 26, 2013 to as recently as September 15, under the topic, "Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?" the following statement appeared: "If you can't afford any health plan, you can get free or low-cost health and dental care at a nearby community health center." Here is how the page in question appeared:


    However, sometime between September 16 and September 23, the reference to "free" care was dropped. The title of the topic was changed as well, and now reads: "Where can I get low-cost care in my community?" Here is how the page currently appears:

    "This was the moment we started to provide care for the sick .."

    Looking back at that rhetoric now, how anyone fell for these absurdities ....

    Ha, who'd a thunk it?

    If the loons think healthcare is expensive now, wait until it's free.

    Any wonder why the collective has started dropping the "Obamacare" reference over the last few weeks in favor of "Affordable Care Act"?

    a.k.a Bait and Switch
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'll tell you what's really absurd: The fact that so many people on the right actually thought that Romney had a chance to win last November.

    Romney wasn't even in the game.

    Can anyone guess what will happen if the GOP runs another dude like Romney in 2016?

    I guess this comes as a great shock to the CONs but for decades the County/Community Health Care Centers have provided simple healthcare for low income folks. They use a sliding scale based on income. I know birth control and STDs are handled at these clinics, often for little if any charge if you have a food stamp card. funds are limited but they also give out vouchers for more complex health concerns to be handled at local doctor offices/clinics/county hospital.

    ^ A truly desperate partisan hackery attempt to derail the topic to an irrelevancy.

    Obama's slogan should be "You can believe me when I tell you I lied."
