Oh Well: Colorado Woman Who Championed Obamacare Loses Insurance Plan

Posted by on Nov 09, 2013 at 9:05 am

Excuse me while I indulge in some schadenfreude.

President Barack Obama is apologizing to Americans who are losing their current health insurance plans. Millions of people are getting cancellation notices, including about 250,000 Coloradans.

For years the president said that those who like their current plan would be able to keep it, but it turns out that’s not the case.

In order to comply with the Affordable Care Act insurance companies have had to cancel millions of policies, forcing people to find new, and in many cases, more expensive coverage on the exchange.

The Colorado Division of Insurance says 250,000 people in Colorado alone have lost their policies in the last few months.

Cathy Wagner says she isn’t political and has never written a lawmaker, much less the president, but with Obamacare she felt compelled.

“I really just wanted him to know … I was so hopeful that this plan was going to move us forward, but in fact I think it’s moving us backward,” Wagner said.

Wagner and her husband retired early. She was a nurse for 35 years and championed Obamacare, until she received a letter from her insurance company saying it was canceling her policy.

“I was really shocked … all of my hopes were sort of dashed,” Wagner said. “’Oh my gosh President Obama, this is not what we hoped for, it’s not what we were told.’ “

You were warned but didn’t listen. Now you must suffer.

    My dream come true! I hope the every democrat and non- voting republican gets their insurance cancelled. That would be a real time example of Rev. Wrights “the chickens have come home to roost”. A lying crook from Chicago becomes president, and you lose your insurance. Who knew? Time to wake up and smell the roses.

    “Retired early.” What’s she bitching about? She’s got plenty of time to pick up a job to make her Obamacare premium.

    Championed Obamacare but was “not political”? In the Gulag, Solschinitzyn said there were prisoners there that as they were being worked, beaten and starved to death, said; “If comrade Stalin only knew what was happening here, he would set it right”. These foolish Democrats now say this never would have happened if Barack had only known. To bad the top Progressive Republicans will not hammer the fact that NOT ONE Congressional Republican voted for Obamacare. They would rather elect Progressive Democrats than Conservative Republicans. Priebus, McCain, Boehner et al are Progressives and Stateists FIRST.
