Walmart health plan is cheaper, offers more coverage than Obamacare
Washington Examiner

For many years, the giant discount retailer has been the target of unions and liberal activists who have harshly criticized the company’s health care plans.

But a Washington Examiner comparison of the two health insurance programs found that Walmart’s plan is more affordable and provides significantly better access to high-quality medical care than Obamacare.

Journal of the American Medical Association reported a 30-year-old smoker would pay up to $428 per month, in contrast to roughly $70 each month for a Walmart employee. A family of four could pay a $962 premium, but the same Walmart family member would pay about $160. The deductibles are high, but Obamacare deductibles are higher, going up to $6,300.

The retailer’s employees can use eight of the country’s most prestigious medical facilities, including the Mayo Clinic, Pennsylvania’s Geisinger Medical Center and the Cleveland Clinic. Many top-rated Walmart hospitals — such as the Mayo and Cleveland clinics — are left out of most Obamacare exchange plans.

Selon un sondage Gallup publié à la fin du mois de décembre, 72% des Américains considéraient qu’un gros gouvernement constituait une menace pour les États-Unis. Seulement 21% des gens sondés ont plutôt affirmé que les grosses entreprises représentaient une menace. Ceci explique cela.
