More Unintended Consequences? Marriage Penalty In Health Care Bill?

All you have to do is look at the welfare system to see how well it supports the institution of marriage. Poor children are trapped in poverty in many cases by the absence of a father helping to support the family. Along comes ObamaCare and it has the same incentives for the poor not to marry as the welfare programs do. Stay single and you will receive more government health credits than if you marry. Unintended consequences or "intended" consequences that result in keeping the poor as wards "slaves" of the government and, for some unknown weird reason, solid Democrat voters.

"New Federal Subsidies Marred by Marriage Penalty" here.
