Another Glitch: Newly discovered ObamaCare error giving bad info on premium aid

What a joke! Can government do anything right?
Check it out:

A newly discovered glitch in the main ObamaCare website reportedly is giving thousands of people the wrong information about whether they qualify for premium subsidies.

The Philadelphia Inquirer discovered the glitch while entering hypothetical incomes into the calculator on HealthCare.gov. The newspaper found that the calculator is using the wrong year’s poverty guidelines — a simple mistake that, for months, has resulted in would-be enrollees getting inaccurate guidance.

Because of the glitch, some people may be initially told they qualify for subsidies when they don’t. Others may be told they don’t qualify when they do.

It’s unclear how many people have been affected, but the mistake raises the possibility that thousands are giving up the hunt for insurance after being told, inaccurately, that they don’t qualify for government aid.
