ObamaCare has millions of “faces.” Those that had their hours cut at work, making it more difficult to make ends meet. Also, we cannot forget the people that have lost their jobs entirely. And, too, we cannot forget the millions that had a plan, or doctor, that they liked. Of course, they now have lost one, or both. In other words, the casualties of ObamaCare are piling up.
Emilie Lamb, 39, is a middle-class woman who suffers from Lupus, a chronic illness. She voted for President Barack Obama in 2012, hoping Obamacare would benefit her. Tuesday night, she’ll watch the State of the Union as the special guest of Rep. Marsha Blackburn.
She is now working a second job to cover a calculated $6,000 increase in out-of-pocket health care costs per year, according to a new ad by the conservative Americans for Prosperity.
She was forced to purchase a more expensive plan after her old policy with CoverTN was canceled. The federal government had denied CoverTN’s request for a waiver to grandfather her plan into Obamacare three times.
As this blog, and others around the country have been documenting, there are thousands of people like Emilie out there. By the time ObamaCare reaches full implementation, there will be millions more. They are victims of ObamaCare, and because ObamaCare is harming them, their stories do not go with the narrative. Because of that, they will never be featured on the MSM. So, we will tell their stories, so no one will forget them.
