Obamacare's priorities

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Feb 11, 2012

  • You are an 85-year-old man, living on a fixed income. You spend most of your time caring for your wife, who suffers from Alzheimer's. You don't mind the effort because you love her, and don't want her alone in an institution. You worry how she would fare without you. Fortunately your own health is good, apart from a heart condition that requires daily medication. The pills are expensive and your budget is tight. Will Obamacare allow you to continue living the way you want? You're not sure.
  • You are a 20-year-old woman, living in a sorority at an elite university. Your health is perfect. Your extracurricular interests include planning weekend theme parties and engaging in recreational sex with the willing guys from the fraternity next door. You want pills to prevent the natural consequences of your sexual activity, and you can afford them, but the cost eats into your budget for recreation. Will Obamacare allow you to continue living the way you want? Absolutely.
