Once again, we can say thanks to a private sector that is routinely berated by the government-loving statists of the Democrat Party. It turns out that the heartless corporations, and not the big-government juggernaut of good intentions, are the ones actually doing good for Americans, their families, and their communities. In a piece of news that is tailored fit to annoy the liberal in your life, it turns out Walmart’s healthcare plans are measurably more compassionate than the stock plans offered by Obamacare.
I’ll give you a minute to fit that last thought on a bumper sticker that you can stealthily sneak onto the back window of a liberal friend’s Chevy Volt.
The Messiah President’s signature piece of legislation – often considered the Holy Grail for well-intentioned limousine liberals – fails to outperform the healthcare offerings Walmart makes available to its vast army of non-union employees. So, while liberals berate the corporation for low wages, “inadequate” healthcare options, and general callousness, just remember that working at Walmart is still better than getting something for “free” from Big Brother.
According to the Washington Examiner, an exhaustive study comparing Walmart’s standard employee plans and Obamacare alternatives, have unequivocally proven the moral superiority of big business over big government. Walmart offers all its employees (from janitor to CEO) two standard plans (wow… no special exemptions for management? Already it looks like a better deal than Obamacare!)… And both plans have proven to be more cost effective, comprehensive, accessible, and efficient than even the most “affordable” alternatives available on healthcare.gov.
The Washington Examiner provided a wide range of examples, but the most impressive portion of the report was highlighted in regards to the insurance requirements:
Unlike Obamacare, there are no income eligibility requirements. Age and gender do not alter premium rates. The company plan is the same for all of Walmart's 1.1 million enrolled employees and their dependents, from its cashiers to its CEO.
