Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” is now known to many as the lie of the century. Over 4 million Americans have lost their personal doctor and healthcare due to Obamacare and this number is expected to rise. Millions more are paying higher premiums. Millions more had their full time jobs reduced to part time jobs or lost their jobs altogether.
There are multiple stories of grandfathers, grandmothers, fathers, mothers, and children losing their health care coverage for cancer, sclerosis, and other ailments. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, a 49-year-old woman with cancer had been responding well to her therapy and was expected to live for years due to the medicine and her own doctors, who kept her alive. Then, her healthcare plan was considered illegal under Obamacare. Accoring to her son’s statement in the article, “ObamaCare made my mother’s old plan illegal, and it forced her to buy a new plan that would accelerate her disease and death.”
Real Americans are being denied healthcare, while illegal immigrants are being encouraged to enroll their family on the health care exchange. According to the Covered California website, there is a special page for the “undocumented”. Obamacare has been under greater pressure to produce impressive enrollment numbers as the program comes under more intense scrutiny from politicians and the public, providing a possible motive for recruiting illegal aliens to enroll.
Another disturbing article on Feb. 27, 2014 states Democrat Vincent Gray has ordered insurance companies in the District of Columbia to provide “gender-reassignment surgery” (Sex Change) to those who desire it. Gray says people with gender dysphoria, also known as gender identity disorder, “should not have to pay exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses for medically necessary treatment.”
Obamacare also provides free birth control. Yet, Obama and all the other politicians (and their staff) and their donors are all exempted from Obamacare.
To recap, real Americans are losing their jobs, paying a new tax, paying higher premiums, losing their doctor and health insurance, and even dying because the government has taken away their health care. But as Kathleen Sebelius, Obama’s U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, states, “someone lives and someone dies.” Yet, if grandma were an “undocumented” illegal, demanding free birth control or a “gender-reassignment surgery” (sex change), she would get it! But she ca not keep her doctor or get the medication that will save her life?
