what a stupid "letter", which i have a feeling was written to make people angry and to feed an already poisonous view of a voted in president.
does anyone know how the government works in this country? or how the ACA works? no it seems not, if you believe this sob story should be taken seriously.
lots of people suffer just like the claimed person in this letter, and they are smart enough to know that this letter is BS piled on BS. oh it feels good to point fingers, but pointing fingers at singular individuals.
if "she" wants to point fingers she can go look in a mirror too, because she is just as much to blame for the mess as the president, whether through how she voted or by who she supports, we sadly all are.
she shouldn't be thanking obama, she should be thanking the morons blinded by pipedream philosophy and imaginary economic systems like trickle down economics. of course she could thank congress for being a bunch of greedy idiots who are more concerned about elections than doing their jobs.
thank you america, you screwed yourselves over, but thankfully it is fixable if we try. the ACA was an okay attempt but special interests screwed that up and now it's just a mechanism for big business to make money. of course to fix this, a lot of americans need to a new worldview...but i have a feeling that will never happen.
I see a lot of people from other countries saying they don't understand why we don't have free healthcare.
Frankly I for one don't want free healthcare from anyone. I don't want free anything from anyone. I spent four years in Canada and had coverage while I was there and yes I enjoyed having my free rabies vaccination as opposed to the $150 I had to pay here for the same vaccine last year.
Everyone has their own opinion but I for one don't want the government telling me when I can go to the doctor, who I can see, when I can see them, and what tests they can run. All that does is put more control into their already overly greedy and controlling hands.
There is nothing wrong with being stupid in general and failure at life in general, by her OWN admission, this ladies life is barely functioning, she can't even earn enough to take proper care of her kids. Yet somehow she the Belligerent GALL to call out the President of the United States, for NOT understanding FAILURE? Of course he doesn't understand it as innately as this women because he is a WINNER. When your life is as disastrous shape as this womens, she should look in the mirror and pledge to herself to do better, and have the grace to realize you are in no shape to be giving advice to ANYONE.

By the tone of the letter this FAILURE of a women most likely doesn't qualify for the ACA, because she is too poor for ANY plan, but she WOULD qualify for Medicaid if her idiot Governor would simply take the money. EVERY one of these 'ObamaCare' Horror stories end with ignorant 'Tea Party' types going off half-cocked with no idea what they are talking about, every one I have seen of Fox News would wind up with FAR better HealthCare at a cheaper price, when examined by REAL Journalists.edit on 19-11-2013 by kingofthenet because: (no reason given)

We won't, and we are that tight with our money because I lost my job right after we moved into our house. With the job I had, our budget was more than comfortable. Then things crashed and I was left with the part-time job I have now. We now have a tight budget, but still workable. I'd like to find another full-time job obviously, but in five years, that hasn't yet happened. Jobs in my field are difficult to get here in this part of the country.
If Obamacare hits my husband's health insurance next year and we get dropped into the exchange, it will have the effect of dropping a small tactical nuke into our budget. There is no way we can trim our current budget enough to make ends meet with the projected bill we will get even if we downsize back into an apartment.
And we make too much to qualify for subsidy. This is because we are still paying college loans.

Wahhh. Cry me a river. I think most HUMANS not just Americans have done this.
I'm not pro Obama,but it's getting old.I thought about actually responding to that letter and putting that person in their place,but the effort isn't worth it. My post probably would've been deleted.
Glad to know you where you stand on this.
Being as Obamacare just started up, many people are just now finding out the predicament that it is going to put them in.
Loss of current plan...
More money being paid out...
And a president who intentionally deceived the public about all of this.
[unless he didn't know himself, which is equally as bad if not worse IMO]
No big deal tho...*sigh*
