The Democrats in Congress have apparently decided to let millions of unemployed people lose their health insurance, beginning next Tuesday, June 1. They lose COBRA subsidies, making insurance unaffordable, and lose COBRA as well because it reverts to an 18-month program.
According to Dems cut health subsidies to salvage jobs bill,
House leaders have proposed dropping billions in aid to states and letting health insurance subsidies for laid-off workers expire in an effort to round up votes for a bill to extend unemployment benefits.I suspect that millions of unemployed people will also lose any interest they may have ever had in voting for Democrats, as well.
