    I FELL INTO THE DONUT HOLE
    And Obamacare pulled me out.



    Because of radical right wing strong hand budget cuts I did not get a COLA, food stamps and section 8 housing but I did get out of the donut hole and thanks to Obamacare. I went to pick up my prescriptions and got out my ATM care to pay for them and I was told I did not owe any thing. I take 13 medications and Copaxone for MS.
    My hero, Obamacare.:clap2::cool::razz:

    Obamacare increased employee costs in my area, so my property tax rose $700, and my Social Security was reduced to $700. My entire life's savings will be gone in less than 10 years just to meet tax payments I will have to pay to live in my own paid-for home.

    Obama shut down oil drilling in the gulf, raised costs for the energy businesses in America and doubled unemployment. My gas went from $30 a tank to $72 a tank, and food prices went through the roof in the past 3 years due to extra costs to the transportation businesses along with cost of living demands made by unions.

    Thanks for higher prices, Obamacare and Obama. You have pushed many average people into lives of poverty in their old age and decimated the American dream.

    Now Congress can't count on me for its planned-on bonanza to feed the federal pig when I die, because I will have nothing left for them to take away from my children, who by then will be retiring.

    I will eat dog food before I will accept food stamps.

    It is good to read about someone for whom the system is actually working.

    Its working for me, too, only in my case the VA picks up most of my medical expenses.

    Not that I have any, but it's good to know they're there for me if I need it.

    After the insurance companies denied me insurance coverage, for the simple reason that I moved to a different state, I can now purchase health insurance again. It isn't super cheap and it goes up every year, but at least I can get it now. My cost this year is $408 per month with a $2500 deductible. I will never hit my deductible unless something catastrophic happens, but that is what I need insurance for, something the insurance companies felt they should deny me from after having paid for insurance for the last few decades. But hey, we need less regulation so these companies can fuck over as many people as possible.

    Most of you don't understand any of this, because you get your insurance through your employer and only see a small portion of the costs. You are falsely led to believe you have choices, but you do not, because you are tied in to what your employer makes available to you. The good thing for you is that you can't be denied, unless of course you get sick and then lose your job. Then you get 18 months of Cobra, but after that, you are fucked too. Just hope you never get sick.

    Considering their decision on corporate political funding, I don't think the American public has a prayer...
