How Democrats could accidentally hit Americans with big health insurance bills right before the midterms

Democrats may be stumbling into a chaotic situation before the November midterms that few are talking about. Millions of Americans are set to see their healthcare bills surge in 2023 with more pandemic aid fading away.
That’s due to the growing possibility Democrats never manage to resurrect parts of their social spending and climate package, which stalled out in the evenly-divided Senate because of resistance from Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
The Biden stimulus law beefed up subsidies to cut monthly premium costs and make private individual health insurance plans more affordable under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Democrats intended to extendthe program in their defunct Build Back Better bill, setting aside generous new funding to help those without employer-based insurance get coverage in the health insurance marketplace.
Federal unemployment aid expired last year and enhanced ACA subsidies may experience the same fate on December 31. The next open Obamacare enrollment window kicks off November 1, meaning voters would learn about soaring insurance bills only a week before the midterms as they start browsing available plans for 2023 or get notified by insurers.

America is not a country, it's just a business. (Brad Pitt, Killing Them Softly)
"Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" GRRM
