Dalton residents rally to support health law
Dalton daily citizen ^ | 9/26/13 | Charles Oliver

Sherie Luffman has been without health insurance for the past seven years.

“I had to cancel it because I couldn’t afford $750 a month in insurance premiums, and I’m more than two years away from qualifying for Medicare,” said Luffman, first vice chairwoman of the Whitfield County Democratic Party.

“I’m really looking forward to the Affordable Care Act taking effect. I’ll be able to buy insurance on the health care exchange. I’ll qualify for federal assistance to help pay my premiums. I’ll be able to go to the doctor when I get sick instead of waiting to see if I get better or die,” she said.

Luffman was one of about 40 people gathered in front of the Whitfield County Courthouse Wednesday evening to support the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and to oppose a bill authored by U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger, that would defund and delay the bill for one year. Graves’ district includes Whitfield and Murray counties.

Wow just wow. 40 people wanting signs demanding free stuff warrants a news article.

So Ms Luffman you are @ 60 years old and did not do anything in those 60 years to be prepared for this time of your life and now you want ME through my tax dollars to take care of you?

Francisco d'Anconia: "check your premises." Is she certain she'll be able to find a doctor nearby that will treat her?

Why aren’t people questioning how much these “subsides” are going to cost the tax payers? These costs are going to be enormous. This woman talks like the money to subsidize her premiums is spare change everyone has to give her.
I frankly suspect this is just another one of the endless sob stories the Dems. trot out to justify their theft of our money.

Religious faith in government is far crazier than religious faith in God.

The other freeloaders must have been home on the sofa eating chips. Why should we pay for this woman’s health insurance? No one helped my parents pay, and no one has ever paid for my family’s insurance.

So, the Dems can't pay a "living wage" and provide decent insurance?!?! ... sounds like war on women to me

She’s actually 62-ish now and she’s a retired computer programmer. So she had no insurance for the last 7 years but she retired early anyway? What a dumbazz. But she’s an Obamabot and OFA fan, so her stupidity is obvious.

Don’t know about Dalton, but here in Dallas there is a Doc-in-a-box on virtually every corner. You can get in and see a doctor for usually under $100 assuming no other major tests, services are rendered.

I’ve used them when I was without health insurance and they were more than adequate.

There is presently no shortage of doctors. However, there seems to be a shortage of people willing to pay for their own health care or insurance.

Just the cost of the ACA rollout is costing hundreds of millions of dollars, not to mention all the free publicity the MSM is chipping in. My local newspaper has become the mouthpiece of the ACA rollout, almost as if it’s a government agency. I would not be surprised if they are working hand-in-glove with Democratic politicians.

WTF? Retired early? And its the taxpayers job to subsidize her health care? Like most folks I had my ups and downs in life. I worked my ass off and am in decent shape financially for retirement. However, I plan to be work full time at least until I am 67 or 68 and maybe longer. Even after I retire I plan to work part time for fun money etc.

Prior to Obamadeathcare I had my retirement healthcare planned. Now I have no fricken idea. Thanks to dumb b--ches like this who voted for the communist queer. She could have easily covered her own health care by working part time unless she did not save enough money for her own retirement. Sounds to me like she just wants to sit on her a$$. Screw her!

Why is it this woman had time to front a pro-assclown party but not get a job for the past 7 years with health insurance? Doesn’t the Assclown Party provide health insurance?

I'll give the "Dalton Daily Citizen" credit for pointing that out up front. Small-town rag probably had to cover it, but at least gave the proper context. All the town's registered Democrats were, no doubt, in attendance. Heh.
