MSNBC’s Taylor: Obamacare Will Prevent Divorces

by Andrew Johnson

Obamacare provides a new preventive service you may not have heard about: It could reduce divorces, according to one MSNBC contributor.

Goldie Taylor argued on Thursday night that the health-care law will ease financial distress, the top cause of broken marriages. She contended that Republicans cannot claim to be “the party of families” and stable marriages if they don’t agree to support Obamacare.

In reality, Obamacare’s tax credits actually create a huge disincentive to marriage for some middle-income couples — if their incomes are far apart, some married couples could see thousands of dollars in savings on the exchanges if they get divorced.
