As Team Obama is making a last-minute effort to encourage enrollment in ObamaCare, a “slight” change has been made on its website regarding those who will still not be able to afford coverage:

Healthcare.gov no longer promises “free care.” As reported by The Weekly Standard:

From at least June 26, 2013 to as recently as September 15, under the topic, “Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?” the following statement appeared: “If you can’t afford any health plan, you can get free or low-cost health and dental care at a nearby community health center.” Here is how the page in question appeared:


However, sometime between September 16 and September 23, the reference to “free” care was dropped. The title of the topic was changed as well, and now reads: “Where can I get low-cost care in my community?” Here is how the page currently appears:


So, why the change? Probably just a computer glitch or typo, right? Or, maybe an effort to rid the site of a reminder that a basic tenet of ObamaCare is wealth redistribution for the purpose of funding individual health insurance coverage?

Perhaps someone in the media will question the administration on the change. Uh-huh.

Other changes include dropping references to “dental” care and the availability of “prescription drugs,” as well as exchanging the phrase “specialized care for more serious conditions” for the milder “referrals to specialized care.”

But, hey, based on this video, I’m sure the majority of us won’t notice a thing: Sunday Funnies: Voters Completely Clueless About ObamaCare.
