You’ve heard of a shotgun wedding? An Iowa couple is having a hypodermic shot wedding.
Thanks to Obamacare, next year, many Iowans will be looking at having only one insurer left in their exchanges and premium increases of up to 50%. So one farmer who was planning to get married next year has pushed the wedding date up so that his fiancée can become his wife and they can lock in a 2017 couple’s rate before it’s too late.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds called the system “unaffordable, unsustainable and unworkable.” And one Iowa woman facing the end of her current plan and much higher rates next year said, “I cannot believe our politicians and government have put us in this situation.”
And yet, in Washington, Republicans still can’t get their act together to repeal Obamacare while Democrats continue to claim it’s working great and just needs a few tweaks to perfect it, which is the equivalent of spending a billion bucks on spare parts and mechanics to keep your 1986 Yugo running. Maybe some of the more liberal Democrats in DC would finally agree to get rid of it if they knew it was encouraging traditional marriages in Iowa.
