AOC Traumatized by Process of Purchasing Gold-Plated Subsidized Health Plan

AOC has a problem – she needs to purchase health insurance, and she simply has way too many plans to choose from!

Talk about a first world problem. “Members of Congress also have to buy their plans off the exchange. They are Gold plans that are partially subsidized,” she wrote in a tweet. “That means I get to ‘choose’ between 66 complex financial products.” Who knew her economics degree couldn’t even prepare her for this?

“This is absurd…. no one should go through this,” she concluded, as if she just suffered a great trauma.

Considering that of the sixty-six plans she has to choose from are of the highest quality, I’d be telling AOC to check her privilege right about now if I were a liberal. And speaking of that “partial subsidy” AOC mentioned, it’s more of a majority subsidy. As CNBC notes, “[Congresspeople] choose a gold-level Obamacare policy and receive federal subsidies that cover 72 percent of the cost of the premiums.”

That’s not a bad perk in addition to a $174,000 salary. (Of note, AOC has complained about the salary for Congresspeople being frozen at $174k since 2009).

As you’d expect, AOC didn’t find much of the sympathy she was looking for.

In conclusion – should we nationalize nearly a fifth of America’s economy because AOC can’t figure out how to navigate a website? Probably not.
