In addition to a tsunami of glitches in online enrollment, Obamacare
is designed with a payment structure that undercuts marriage and the
family—two institutions that have historically provided the
foundation for a sustainable and thriving civil society.
The law is structured to provide less support to a husband and wife
than it would to the same couple if they were cohabiting. In
essence, it will tax married couples to fund the benefits it
provides to couples who cohabit, divorce, or never marry. The impact
of this discrimination will affect couples at every income level and
creates a scenario in which couples’ wisest financial decision would
be to divorce or forgo tying the knot.
