The Definitive Guide to How Obamacare
is Destroying American Lives

Matt Walsh Blog, by Matt Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:LComStaff, 10/23/2013 12:46:37 PM

On Sunday night, I wrote a short post soliciting stories from my readers about how Obamacare has already immediately impacted their lives. I asked that all of these emails be directed to ObamacareMakesMeSick@Yahoo.com. I expected a response; I didn’t expect it to be quite so overwhelming. Over the last 24 hours, my inbox has been flooded with hundreds of emails. What you’ll read in this post represents a portion of them. I’m only one guy (with a fulltime job and twins) — I wasn’t able to go through every single message just yet. Some, I left out because the information

Comments:
As a firm rule we do not post stand alone blogs but we felt this information is vital to our readers.

Thanks Staff!

This should be the focus of the Republicans - not usability of a website, not the technical aspects of signing up.

Congress needs to keep hammering on costs, the inability to keep your current insurance, and how it will affect the family and people´s jobs.

I´ve been reading these email "complaints" against 0bamaCare for well over an hour. Blogger says more to come. I can´t imagine how these collective cries of anguish aren´t being reported. It´s like cancer. Name someone you know who hasn´t been affected by it.

Like our once great military, as per Andrew Malcolm´s article yesterday, 0bama is truly out to destroy our Country and economy and what was once called the "American Dream." I would have thought this not possible.

First, this monstrosity is not about healthcare, it is about CONTROL.

As we said in the military, "When they have you by the b*lls, your heart and mind will follow."

Second, all these horror stories are exactly what the Dems want to hear, as it will result in the eventual "solution" being single-payer gov´t insurance.

Third, why would Obama hire a company to build a web site when they´d been fired for failing to do so a year earlier?

"The Canadian government fired the parent company of CGI Federal, the prime contractor for the problem-plagued Obamacare health exchange websites, last year for poor performance."

What a devastating compendium of destruction caused by Obamacare.
Now many of us face a tax penalty for not wasting thousands of dollars on Obamacare, and we´ll get absolutely nothing in return for it.
I´ll go as far as predict Obamacare will trigger another major recession. People are frightened, angry, and feel backed into a corner.

All Republicans need to do is repeat over and over...

We gave Democrats over 50 opportunities to delay Obamacare, but they refused every single chance.

They even took the country to the brink with their no negotiation stance.

We can do better - People are hurting out there and it´s Democrats who are creating that pain.

I know people who have been planning to relocate to other countries to work, or if over 65 retire there.

A factor in deciding where, is the cost of health care. They are planning to buy private medical insurance until they are eligible to pay to get on that countries health plans.

There is a simple guide to understanding everything uttered by a socialist: the truth is the exact opposite of what they say. They lie. They lie about everything. All the time. With no exceptions. Even if the truth does them no harm, they will make up a lie anyway. They can´t NOT lie.

Therefore, we should have all known what was coming just from the name: the AFFORDABLE Care Act. How did we miss that?

I could barely tolerate reading through the horrific experiences of these poor, unfortunate fellow Americans. I dread that day that I get "the letter" from my insurance company. This feeling of constant anxiety and complete lack of control do do anything about the criminally behaving 0bama and his regime is about more than I can handle. The thought of 2014 being the only thing that can save us coupled with the horrific behavior of the establishment Republicans is just terriying. It is not idle talk to say we are on the verge of losing our once great country. I´m glad I am not a 20-year old being faced with these dire prospects.

If this does not break your heart nothing will. I just forwarded the link to Sen. Richard Burr, Sen Kay Hagan and Rep. Renee Ellmers. I want the senators to see what they have done. Ellmers is fighting tooth and nail to beat this tragedy back. And thanks to the staff for allowing this post. I beg you to keep posting these real life stories. I will keep passing them on.

I simply do not understand how Democrats keep getting elected in the face of this nonsense. I just read the results of a Rasmussen poll in Virginia that said Terry McAuliffe, the thug, sleazy, dishonest, criminal Clinton fixer has opened up a 17 point lead over Ken Cuccinelli in the governor´s race. How does this happen? Are we witnessing the complete dissolution of our country before our very eyes? I just do not understand it.

My story was posted on this blog too (Amy in Texas). I´ve been a poster here for 9 years but a reader for 10. We´re "fortunate" in that our deductible isn´t as high as the other stories but with two TI kids, getting hit with that $4000 all at once in Jan is going to be impossible for us. I´m sick reading everyone elses story too. I think I´ll post this on Cruz´s Facebook. Please pray for us that we can find the money to pay for my two boys´ care.

The devastation is heart-wrenching. And unacceptable. The American people must stand united against this. We can topple this ruthless, lawless, vindictive regime if we refuse to submit. I for one refuse to submit. I am not going to be intimidated by a power hungry egomaniac.

Thank you Matt for taking the time to write this post. The least the rest of us can do is stand firm in our opposition and never give up, never give in.

How is a family making $78,201 (400% above poverty and $1 more) supposd to the premiums and deductibles. I priced a policy, it only took three weeks to get a price, and the least expensive package was ($943 a month with a $12,600 deductible).

Meghan Kelly had a democrat congressman on her show. he came right out and said that this is all the fault of the awful insurance companies. Obama is the only one trying to fix the problem that the insurance companies are causing..
I do remember reading..and I am sorry, I do not have proof....that Obama called in the ins.companies for a meeting.. they were told to raise rates, and start cutting health care..but would be find if the ins. companies informed the public that they were instructed to do this.
Obama is having another meeting with ins.execs. If I were one of them I would take a tape recorder

Two years ago my company decided to put all non-Executive types on a High-Deductible health care system. Our premiums jumped 30% on one year with no warning or compensation offset. We must also pay all medical/drug costs until we reach a limit before an 80/20 co-pay assistance kicks in, which is $1500 for single, and $3000 for family. Our "Out of Pocket Maximum" for a year, which I´ve met 3 years in a row now for a variety of surgeries, is $3500 for single and $7000 for family.

Obviously, companies no longer want to cover dependents as can be seen by the "dependent penalty: here. I had to kick my son off my policy because for the Out of Pocket Maximum difference for the year ($3500), which I knew I´d achieve, I could put him on his own very good Blue Cross-Blue Shield policy that was way better than my company´s policy, and still save money!

Conservative organizations need to remind Americans via TV/Radio ads EVERY SINGLE DAY that it was the Democrats who voted on a straight Party line to destroy the finest health care system in the world.

Ok Republicans! It is not going to be enough to repeal Obamacare. You MUST come up with an alternate plan. I hope you have people working on that now because it will be needed sooner rather than later.

There are forty pages of testimonials here. You don´t need to read them all--just enough to savor the flavor. Today Gallup and the Washington Post posted articles telling us how popular Obamacare is. I have the sneaking suspicion that the Orwellian "Affordable" Care Act, which passed Congress with exactly zero Republican votes, is going to kill the Democratic (sic) Party once the voters grasp what has been done to them. Small loss. Sayonara. Their time came and went.

And we can also do without the Establishment Republicans who like saying that this bill is "the law of the Land." Screw them, too. Besides, I´m a libertarian. Consumer Reports, that bastion of conservatism (not!), has told its readers not to sign up with the Obamacare exchanges. And the Obamacare 800 number is 1-800-318-2596. What does that spell? 1-800-F1U-CKYO. Obama´s got his bare butt pressed against our picture windows, and he´s enjoying himself. Now it´s time to get some payback.

It needs to be destroyed, but we knew this wouldn´t happen until a large mass of "true believers" saw the truth, and it had to hurt them. It´s JUST starting. Now you´ll see what your R and tea party people who have been loudest can do, for real. Storming the Bastille is an understatement after the fines for this criminal act go into effect in a larger percentage. Even Lofo idiots are waking up. You´re talking about food, gas, housing left behind to pay for NOTHING care...mommas and their cubs...guess who they´ll vote for if the message is right come 2016 when the damage has hit full force?

It either implodes, which our hospital system has been preparing for, or it closes down vast segments of care venues and providers. I´m planning on my job gone in a few years if it survives in any form close to now. Many docs i work with are either retiring, combining, or going straight concierge, fee for service, no insurance of any kind. Flat fee for year, greater access. Where you run into trouble is the emergency and surgical issues. That´s what the catastrophic plans were for previously that don´t meet ACA "standards"....

But if it came to paying loan shark rates for nothing-coverage or feeding my family, the family wins. And anyone renting out their primary residence would benefit from talking to an attorney about a trust for that now-unaffordable home and seeing what 0-care penalties you can avoid by doing so.

There aren´t enough fed BK judges to oversee the massive cases that will flood in from this hell.

Keep it simple...just say "not one single vote"...and let them ask you what you mean.

Not one single Republican voted for Obamacare and they have tried to stop it.

I´m sorry but, what else can you do when people refuse to listen and refuse to learn how insurance works.

I hate this stuff. One of my best friends told me his premium was going from about $ 800 a month to over $ 1,700 a month.

This stuff is going to cripple the economy in 2014....believe it.

Obamacare will be the trigger that starts the revolution. When you can´t buy a home and care for your family, what have you got to lose? The anger will get much worse as more and more people lose everything they have, including their loved ones. It´s not going to be good to be in Washington over the next year.

As I have said a number of times, my open enrollment is coming soon. I will let you know how it goes. Some of my kids have already enrolled with their company plans and the effects have not been to disastrous. 6% higher premiums, double the copay, higher (but not outrageous) deductibles. We´ll see.

I have to laugh when I hear people warn of a gov´t run, single payer system. The gov´´t cant even build a health care web site, so there is no way they can develop a gov´t run health care system.

What is happening is good news to real conservatives,who believe people should experience the consequences of their stupid actions. the majority of voters voted for obamanation care in the last election (whether they were smart enough to realize it or not), and the american people age getting what they deserve..

What is needed if not a revolution is for as many people as possible hopefully about 200 to 250 Million people refuse to sign up for Obamacare.

That would break the back of Obamacare even with the tax penalty in April. If you have no refund they must then take measures to attach a lien on your paycheck with your employer.

Two years of refusing to sign up should bankrupt any further efforts for Obamacare.

I now understand why Goodwill is opening Clearance Centers where poor people can find clothing and other necessary goods at $8 per pound. The items may not be in pristine condition but someone who is handy would find the centers a treasure trove.

My doc, a cardio thoracic surgeon--top notch, was investigated by Justice Department, reviewed 7300 of his surgeries...charged him with Medicare fraud on One. found Not guilty by a jury, as he made no money, in fact less than he could have.... but Judge sentenced him to 10 months and $40,000 anyway for a typo in a post operative report...
Said they wanted to set an example for other Docs...More like sending a threat ( Do what we say with Obamacare without opposition or we´ll DESTROY you)..He was a big GOP donor. Left his 6 kids for prison...

How much of this will we tolerate?

Was every Doc in the HHS/ Justice Department witch hunt white and GOP...like the IRS?????

This "breakdown" in logging on to the website is planned. It´s how the dems want to get us on a single payer system. "they" are hoping the people will get fed up with the waits etc and start demanding their healthcare. Then in 2014, the dems will take both houses and usher the single payer system in. Wait and watch.

One question. How many of the posters on that blog voted for 0bama? Never listened to him speak? No brainer from 2009. We, the people, have been screwed. I say again. All of this has been planned. Folks will start complaining (rightly so) and demand action and wala, we have single payer "insurance." Simple as that. We are going to lose our rear ends when 2014 closes out ´cause the dems will have both houses.

These stories are heartbreaking, and all of it is intentional. Obama wants to drive everyone to the brink and over the edge of financial ruin. He wants them totally dependent on govt., and kissing his ring for crumbs from his table.

The msm will not report these stories, until maybe someone close to them dies as a result of this evil, calamatous law.

Anyone that voted for Obama either time should suffer for what they´ve wrought.

Obamacare - The Affordable Care Act - was never about health care, reducing the cost of health care or making health care accessible or better.

Proof: No new Doctors were hired, no new hospitals were built, no new classes were offered or colleges opened for students to become Physicians. The government, obama, passed the ACA by bribing Senators to pass legislation that should have (Constitutionally) begun in the House of Representatives and then hiring 11,000 new IRS agents to see to it´s (ACA) funding.

Only in a liberal mind can you have 30million new customers, and no additional service personnel - then - expect everything to work.

I expect within the next few months, there will be a announcement that the ACA is dead, but since the health care insurance companies have been all put out of business by the attempted, but flawed, ACA, the only choice obama has is to implement a Single Payer Plan.

This is heartbreaking to read, and we have our own story, too, of rising premiums deductibles and lower reimbursements.

Just remember that Congress is exempt from the problems caused by Obamacare. We the people are taking it on the chin, and Jay Carney walks out of press conferences when they ask questions about it.

Just yesterday, it was stated on Stuart Varney´s show on Fox Business that if a person receives the subsidy to help pay for their insurance through Obamacare, the IRS considers that income, and taxes must be paid on it. In addition, what happens if that "income" puts a family or person above the limit for the subsidy? Catch-22, Obama-style?

A Deadly Mix in Benghazi

Benghazi, Libya - A Boyish-Looking American Diplomat was meeting for the first time with the Islamist leaders of eastern Libya’s most formidable militias. It was Sept. 9, 2012. Gathered on folding chairs in a banquet hall by the Mediterranean, the Libyans warned of rising threats against Americans from extremists in Benghazi. One militia leader, with a long beard and mismatched military fatigues, mentioned time in exile in Afghanistan. An American guard discreetly touched his gun. “Since Benghazi isn’t safe, it is better for you to leave now,” Mohamed al-Gharabi, the leader of the Rafallah al-Sehati Brigade, later recalled telling the

FRANK SINATRA, holding a glass of bourbon in one hand and a cigarette in the other, stood in a dark corner of the bar between two attractive but fading blondes who sat waiting for him to say something. But he said nothing; he had been silent during much of the evening, except now in this private club in Beverly Hills he seemed even more distant, staring out through the smoke and semidarkness into a large room beyond the bar where dozens of young couples sat huddled around small tables or twisted in the center of the floor to the clamorous

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended

On Sunday night, I wrote a short post soliciting stories from my readers about how Obamacare has already immediately impacted their lives. I asked that all of these emails be directed to ObamacareMakesMeSick@Yahoo.com. I expected a response; I didn’t expect it to be quite so overwhelming. Over the last 24 hours, my inbox has been flooded with hundreds of emails. What you’ll read in this post represents a portion of them. I’m only one guy (with a fulltime job and twins) — I wasn’t able to go through every single message just yet. Some, I left out because the information

Theft of US weapons in Libya involved

The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided

Details buried in the United Nations report on the Syrian chemical weapons attack point directly at elite military formations loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, some of the strongest findings to date that suggest the government gassed its own people. A weapons inspector collecting samples near Damascus. The inspectors, instructed to investigate the attack but not to assign blame, nonetheless listed the precise compass directions of flight for two rocket strikes that appeared to lead back toward the government’s elite redoubt in Damascus, Mount Qasioun, which overlooks and protects neighborhoods and Mr. Assad’s presidential palace and where his Republican Guard and the army’s

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
