“After Obamacare has rolled out, we realized that we would save thousands of dollars if we got divorced,” Aronowitz said.The issue for Aronowitz and Cassara is that together as family of only two, they make more than the $62,000 level to qualify for subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. But if they lived together unmarried, they would qualify for the subsidies and could literally save hundreds of dollars a month on their health care.
Marriage penalty is significant across income levels.
A single person can qualify for subsidies if they make less than $46,000 a year.The chattering class calls this an unintended consequence. Baloney. We say, how can it be unintended if we saw it before the program went into effect? We called it Divorceacare and a wedding tax. Obamacare is an anti-marriage, anti-family, anti-work monstrosity. It is structured to be exactly that. Thanks to all.
