…that we know of, at least.
And you’d best hurry up meeting her, because his UnAffordable UnCare Act is in an awful hurry to get her killed off (h/t LC Gladiator). To “bend the cost curve”, we presume. Then again, he does freely admit that “he’s pretty good at killing people“, by which he means to say “giving others orders to go kill people for me” but, semantics…
Everyone now is clamoring about Affordable Care Act winners and losers. I am one of the losers.
My grievance is not political; all my energies are directed to enjoying life and staying alive, and I have no time for politics. For almost seven years I have fought and survived stage-4 gallbladder cancer, with a five-year survival rate of less than 2% after diagnosis. I am a determined fighter and extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been canceled effective Dec. 31.
But, your “substandard” plan from your “bad apple insurer” really didn’t cover you at all, you ungrateful peasant, Ear Leader has told us so himself! You counterrevolutionary wrecker saboteur kulak you! Instead, you’re now being generously offered, OK, threatened to purchase under pain of fines and imprisonment, a much more betterer plan that covers those things that you’re just too stupid to know that you need, and at a fraction of the price. Sure it is! 3/2 is still a fraction! Why, Ear Leader would have thought you’d say “thank you!”
But there you ungrateful, ignorant peasants go again, failing to sufficiently show the gratitude to The Smartest Halfrican Marxist Who Ever Lived™ that he is so richly owed. No wonder he has to keep telling you doofuses what to think.
My choice is to get coverage through the government health exchange and lose access to my cancer doctors, or pay much more for insurance outside the exchange (the quotes average 40% to 50% more) for the privilege of starting over with an unfamiliar insurance company and impaired benefits.
That are much better! And cheaper too! For somebody else! Because 1-800-F1U-CKYO!
And at least you don’t have to worry about maternity coverage if you get pregnant before you do your duty as a subject of His Gloriousness Obama’s Heavenly Regime and die. So there!
So just lie back, close your eyes (for good) and think of your noble sacrifice to the Glorious Soviet Union of Obamerica, know that, thanks to you, Sandra Fluke (rhymes with “pluck”) will never ever have to pay for a condom again. That should be good enough for you. And if not?

The link goes to a “Think” Progress article describing in great detail how the insurer dropping a plan because OgabeCare had outlawed it has nothing to do with OgabeCare and everything to do with the Evil Insurer Being Evil and Stuff™. If you care to read it, go right ahead. As to ourself, His Imperial Majesty only has this to offer:
1) We can’t help but chuckle that the same insurers who threw money in great big piles at Der Führer and promoted the shit out of his plan to destroy healthcare are now getting thrown under the bus by Der Führer to join the piles of dead bodies of other Useful Idiots™ thrown there once their usefulness had expired. You would have thought that at some point they might have caught on to his modus operandi, no?
2) Dear ProgNazis, when you’re reduced to coming up with excuses and explaining to a cancer patient how losing a plan that has kept her alive for this long is actually For Her Own Good™ and totally not your fault even though you specifically knew that she was going to lose it and lied to her about it for 4 years at least, you might want to start considering cutting your losses and quitting while you’re merely behind.
3) Also, ProgNazis, reading about poor Edie and having read about millions upon millions of others among our fellow Americans who have lost their health insurance plans, their homes, their jobs and even their lives thanks to your soulless, universally proven wrong policies, it’s getting to the point where we’re having a really hard time trying to come up with reasons why we shouldn’t just pull the trigger if we ever find ourselves holding a gun to your heads.
It used to be that we could at least find some revulsion within ourselves at the thought of doing such a thing, but it’s getting harder and harder as the piles of destroyed lives and dead bodies caused by you grow larger.
No, we don’t for a second think that you care. You and yours never cared in the past, obviously don’t care now and almost certainly won’t care in the future.
You have to break as many eggs as it takes in this your umpteenth attempt at making your utopian omelet and you’ll keep on doing so for as long as you can.
We’re just saying that perhaps you should care.
For your own sake.
We’ve fought you socialist bastards before, but never quite finished the job.
Should it come to a fight again, it’s getting well nigh impossible to find a reason why we shouldn’t break that pattern and utterly eradicate, annihilate, wipe out and, indeed, cleanse the planet of your presence.
