Obamacare May Make It ‘Literally Impossible’ in US Territories to Buy Insurance

Liberals forgot to make it right? Go figure.
Check it out:

Obamacare was drafted so poorly that residents in America’s territories like the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam may literally be unable to purchase health insurance on the private market next year, even if they are healthy and want to voluntarily do so.

Though Obamacare requires insurance companies in the territories to accept all applicants regardless of preexisting conditions, the law “does not mandate that all territorial residents buy plans nor does it provide subsidies to make coverage more affordable–as it does in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.”

The Washington Post simply noted that “this is, to put it mildly, a really bad way to run an insurance market. The whole idea of the subsidies and the mandate was to encourage enrollment among the healthier, younger people necessary to support an insurance market that also works for the sick.”
