If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free. – P.J. O’Rourke

In the retail industry this kind of thing is called “bait and switch”:

Before mid-September, a section on Healthcare.gov had this: “Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?”

After mid-September, that became this without mention of the change: “Where can I get low-cost care in my community?”

Screen caps here.

At some point I predict the word “affordable” will also be removed from the “Affordable Care Act,” which then become the “‘Ok So It’s Expensive and You Can’t Keep Your Old Plan or Doctor But Shut Up Because We Know What’s Best’ Care Act.”
