Cue the Sad Trombone: The Single Mom Obama Cited As an Obamacare Success Story Can’t Afford the Insurance

Just three days after our Dear Reader cited Jessica Sanford as an example of the type of person his health care scheme was designed to help, she was informed by the Washington state health exchange that her tax credit had been miscalculated. Now she’s getting nothing, and she’s going to be uninsured. Here’s what Obama said about Ms. Sanford on October 21.

“I recently received a letter from a woman named Jessica Sanford in Washington state. And here’s what she wrote, I am a single mom, no child support, self-employed. and I haven’t had insurance for 15 years because it’s too expensive. I was crying the other day when I signed up, so much stress lifted.”

Not exactly.

From CNN:

This CNN report also notes, as we pointed out this morning, that Sec. of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius was informed last March that the Obamacare website would not work.
