Democrats hate anything that empowers people to make their own decisions, so naturally, they want to get rid of popular Health Savings Accounts. Their excuse is that the deductibles are too high, so HSAs and the so-called high-deductible health plans they are associated with are bad insurance that leads people to financial ruin.
As healthcare analyst Joel White points out:
There’s just one problem – average deductibles on Obamacare’s exchanges are $2,000 more for the typical plan than the HSA average.
Pursuing an agenda to put more people in a program where they pay more (and get less access to doctors and drugs) isn’t compassionate – it’s dogmatic adherence to ideology.
