Identifying Obamacare’s victims

Michael Hiltzik discusses his coverage of reform's 'horror stories,' winners who think they're victims, and people who just aren't sure

Obamacares victims or beneficiaries

Welcome to another edition of Curbside Consult.

My guest this week is Michael Hiltzik, a columnist with the Los Angeles Times and the author of The New Deal: A Modern History, now out in paperback.

curbside consultMichael has been doing great work covering the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and we spent a good deal of time in this multi-part interview discussing those efforts.

In Part 3, Michael talks about his interviews with the subjects of two high-profile Obamacare “horror stories.” He explains what he found when he interviewed one woman who expected higher premiums, and a second woman who says she’s losing her coverage because of the health reform law.

Michael raises a couple of good questions: whether many of the “victims” of the law are actually beneficiaries … and whether some skeptical Americans simply aren’t yet sure how they’ll fare.

I hope you enjoy the conversation.
