Thanks, Obama! Woman Has Life-Saving Surgery Postponed Since She Lost Her Insurance

Another ObamaCare success story.

A woman diagnosed with breast cancer, whose life-saving surgery has been postponed after she lost her doctors under ObamaCare, made a heartfelt plea Sunday to President Obama to amend the Affordable Care Act.

In an exclusive appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Josie Gracchi, who has been diagnosed with ductal-invasive carcinoma, looked into the camera and addressed Obama: “I would like my health care taken care of. I was insured. I think anyone who is going through a serious illness should have immediate responses. I shouldn’t have to wait months, weeks, to even be considered for surgery that I should have had weeks ago.”

Gracchi was forced to postpone her Jan. 3 biopsy and follow-up treatment at New York’s Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the largest private cancer center in the world, when her insurance rolled over into a new plan that was part of an exchange under the Affordable Care Act.

“As of January 1, my insurance plan rolled over into a new ObamaCare plan that is part of the exchange and my doctors are no longer available in my network, so the surgeons that I was dealing with … I no longer have access to,” Gracchi told Fox News.

Surely the compassionate left will help promote this outrage. right?

    Bill Keller, NYT writer and former executive editor has a personal message for Ms. Gracchi:

    Oh stop your whining and die already. We’re to trying to accomplish universal healthcare here and you’re not helping.

    Larry, not saying you are wrong for sure, but my Mother had multiple biopsies to map the progress of her breast cancer, including one a week before the surgery. On what medical grounds are you so sure the story is baseless? The story also mentions she has already been diagnosed with ductal-invasive carcinoma. Was that clearly done with voo-doo and chopsticks from some other obvious (to you) text in the article?

    Let us know why your capital letter rant is bulletproof truth, just by reading one sentence in the story.

    Larry,
    She has been diagnosed, a biopsy that was supposed to determine if other masses also had been affected was delayed and she has yet to receive treatment. Her doctors were taken away under her new insurance plan and her treatment is on hold.
