An article published today by the Portland Press Herald shows exactly why Americans are fed up with the liberal media.
The article opens:
“Nearly 11 percent of those now insured on Maine’s ACA market will drop out, forcing insurers to raise rates, Anthem predicts.
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is predicting that thousands fewer people will be covered in Maine’s Affordable Care Act insurance market next year, in part because of Trump administration policies.”
At the opening, the reader is led to believe that Anthem is blaming President Trump for some policy that is driving people off their insurance plan. It goes on to claim higher premiums will result.
It is not until much later in the article that we learn the truth.
The “Trump administration policy” the Press Herald is citing is the President's decision not to penalize people who choose not to buy insurance, many because they can't afford it.
In other words, people exercising their freedom not to purchase a product they don't want or can't afford is the driving factor here.
Here are a couple alternative headlines the PPH will never run:
Freedom causing people to drop Obamacare
Huge premium increases causing people to drop Obamacare
