Misleading NY Times Headline of the Day: ‘Under Health Care Act, Millions Eligible for Free Policies’

If you like sucking up, you can keep sucking up. What on earth is wrong with these morons at the New York Times? After the embarrassing episode Sunday where they claimed Obama merely misspoke when he repeatedly lied about keeping your health insurance, they doubled on on the stupid today with this wildly misleading headline claiming some ObamaCare policies are free. They’re deliberately lying.

Millions of people could qualify for federal subsidies that will pay the entire monthly cost of some health care plans being offered in the online marketplaces set up under President Obama’s health care law, a surprising figure that has not garnered much attention, in part because the zero-premium plans come with serious trade-offs.

 Three independent estimates by Wall Street analysts and a consulting firm say up to seven million people could qualify for the plans, but federal officials and insurers are reluctant to push them too hard because they are concerned about encouraging people to sign up for something that might ultimately not fit their needs.

The bulk of these plans are so-called bronze policies, the least expensive available. They require people to pay the most in out-of-pocket costs, for doctor visits and other benefits like hospital stays.  

Can someone please explain how paying high out-of-pocket costs equates to free? Naturally, one of Obama’s worst media suck-ups plays cute:

On the upside, the Times is being eviscerated in the comments. Even their readers know what a sham this is.
