The 83 percent of ObamaCare-exchange buyers who get subsidies are unlikely to drop out. As for the small number paying full freight, of course many (though not all) will opt for affordable alternatives.
And why shouldn’t they? After all, ObamaCare unfairly forces the healthy to pay the same for insurance as the chronically ill.
People with pre-existing conditions should be subsidized, but instead of burdening healthy insurance buyers in the tiny individual market, the entire nation should chip in. That’s what Republican ObamaCare replacement bills proposed. ObamaCare’s “community pricing” is the biggest reason premiums have soared since 2013.
