    Indiana GOP asked Facebook for Obamacare horror stories. The responses were surprising.

    The Indiana Republican Party posed a question to Facebook on Monday: "What's your Obamacare horror story? Let us know."

    The responses were unexpected.

    "My sister finally has access to affordable quality care and treatment for her diabetes."

    "My father's small business was able to insure its employees for the first time ever. #thanksObama"

    "Love Obamacare!"

    "The only horror in the story is that Republicans might take it away."


    And only 12% support the horror that is RyanTrump Senate bill.

    However, the real problem is that the Rs will continue to chip away at it, causing insurers to opt out so they can say, "See, its failing".

    IOW, they care more about their party than they do the American people.

    Last year I mentioned that I was going to retire at 65 when I could get Medicare.
    As an engineer, projects sometimes lasted up to 5 years. I didn't want to get a project lasting years and quit after 2. It's not fair to the company or to the engineers following.
    So they fired me. Which was good. I got full pay for over 30 weeks and healthcare. But I had to find the healthcare they would pay for. Fortunately, I was able to get covered with Obamacare. The only problem is that there will be three months between when my current healthcare lapses and when I get Medicare. They have short term healthcare for such times under Obamacare, but f*cking a$$ whole Republicans want to end that. Because they are mean, dangerous and a dirty people. Hopefully they will be stopped.

    Remember when the tee potty new congress guy threw a fit because he couldn't get ObamaCares until he was in office for a moth?

    Also, the R congress has exempted themselves from the new trump plan.
    I wonder why ...

    No they don't have short term under obamacare and I saw no where in the repubs bill that mentioned short term. You need to call an insurance agent in your area and I'm sure they can find you a short term. But keep in mind short terms does not cover pre x and are meant to be catastrophic.

    Shit, they must have signed up for platinum plans at those prices. If they are not LLC's or corps they need to talk to their accountants and get those modified adjusted gross incomes down to about 250% of federal poverty level and if subsidies exist next year go that route.
