Aaron Carroll at The Incidental Economist responded to a Fox news story about a family that could not find a healthcare policy for their 1 1/2 year old. And of course they are blaming Obamacare since it was on Fox, no surprise there.
I have turned a deaf ear to these stories and that source in particular. But Carroll took aim and deconstructed it to the point of discrediting the spot so well. Hop to the site and read his five points. The Fox news report seriously shows to what degree the loyal opposition will go to make sure people will not sign up, hate the President, and avoid insurance.
Carroll makes a great point that does a Jon Stewart showing the hypocracy.
I’m sorry, but I find it somewhat hypocritical that only now, after decades of about 50 million people being uninsured every year, that suddenly the media is outraged by stories of people (healthy, mind you) having difficulties finding insurance. Really? Suddenly this is an issue? Didn’t seem like it before… AND THIS STORY IS ALREADY RESOLVED. AND LIKELY NOT ENTIRELY TRUE.
