The Myth of “Free”

The news media is engaging in grotesque propaganda when “reporting” on the Obamacare premiums. Take this story:

Almost every county in the U.S.’s HealthCare.gov exchange has free health insurance plans available on the individual exchanges during the current open enrollment, according to a new analysis from Avalere, a public health care firm.

The Center for American Progress and the Kaiser Family Foundation also detailed significant swaths of plans that are inexpensive for people eligible for subsidies.

THE PLANS ARE NOT “FREE”!!! They are paid for by the taxpayers in some cases, but that does not make them “free.” What it means is that the government took a dollar from one American and gave it to another to pay for health insurance. That is not “free.” That is “welfare.”
