College Grad Says Obamacare ‘Has Raped My Future’ In Viral Letter
CBS News Washington D.C. ^ | October 9, 2013 | Benjamin Fearnow

Posted on 10/09/2013 2:27:26 PM PDT by grundle

A University of Michigan graduate penned an open letter that went viral online as she described how President Barack Obama’s signature health care law hurts the working poor, and has “raped” her future.

I have asthma, ulcers, and mild cerebral palsy. Obamacare takes my monthly rate from $75 a month for full coverage on my “Young Adult Plan,” to $319 a month. After $6,000 in deductibles, of course,” Dionne wrote in the Facebook post.

“Liberals claimed this law would help the poor. I am the poor, the working poor, and I can’t afford to support myself, let alone older generations and people not willing to work at all.”

This law has raped my future,” she writes. “It will keep me and kids my age from having a future at all. This is the real face of Obamacare and it isn’t pretty.”

Sorry, kid.

You have the same future that all kids in all Marxist countries have had; that is, you can spend the remainder of your life on Earth working for the Marxists so they can live in their posh mansions and summer dachas and shop in restricted and fully-stocked stores.

Don’t like it? Welcome to the Tea Party.

What a boom, in the short term at least, for insurance companies. I just can’t see how that industry or the gov ever thought this would work.

"“I have asthma, ulcers, and mild cerebral palsy. "

I thought that most ulcer situations can be cured these days, asthma controlled, CP remains an issue.

Bammy underemployment is a huge issue. As is a $6k deductible.

I'm happy to note that she doesn't seem to want to become a slave/ward of the 0bamaNation.

I’ll bet this woman was once proud of helping America elect The First Black President and ‘helping the poor get access to better health care’. Now, she’s seeing the reality of collectivist schemes foisted on the public by the liberal Washington elites. I’m trying to feel sorry for her but sometimes one has to bear the consequences of one’s foolishness. Of course, if she never voted for Obama I would have more sympathy. I would like to know.

Young people should be the most outraged people in the country. They ought to be storming Capitol Hill with pitchforks, tar and feathers. Their futures are being destroyed by massive debt and government mandates. They’re screwed. The Left had better hope the younger generation doesn’t suddenly figure this out.

Don't forget the big prize coming next, Sweety. Obama wants amnesty to add millions and millions of deadbeat illegals to the rolls. Imagine your costs once you're paying for them too.

She apparently doesn’t understand that she’s just going to have to make some sacrifices and set priorities better to be able to pay for the insurance (said Kathleen Sebelius a couple weeks ago when someone asked her about people getting into situations for which they simply cannot afford the insurance premiums).

A 26 year old is not a kid. I’d like to know where, with her health issues, she was getting full health coverage for $75 a month.

I’d also like to know what she got a degree in that she can’t get a job.

There’s always BammyCare’s blue or red pills. Color-coded based on political party but the end result is the same. Move over sick American the illegal babies need that rationed, free care. Pay up you racists...

But it is a hard lesson in reality. Obama supporters should have their own category of extra high health premiums as high risk patients.

where, with her health issues, she was getting full health coverage for $75 a month.”

Some states offer more than one type of Medicaid program, some are subsidized with a small co-pay and others are totally free. So could maybe have been a subsidized program. Would be interesting to know name of state that issued her health coverage.

According to Obama, 26 year olds can remain on their parent’s policies so they must still be kids.

The MSM would never report that prior to ObamaCare, a person with asthma, ulcers, and cerebral palsy only paid $75.00 for full coverage health insurance through a private insurance company.

“A 26 year old is not a kid. I’d like to know where, with her health issues, she was getting full health coverage for $75 a month.”

It’s called the Free Market which did exist just a couple weeks ago and now has been destroyed by ObamaCare.

Now that the government is involved and there is no free market, people with multiple major health issues can no longer buy full insurance coverage for only $75.00 a month.

One of the first things that happened after Obamacare became law was making mandatory coverage to age 26 for young adults under any parental policy.

I’d guess that 75 bucks was a surcharge on the parental policy.

Now she’s on her own.
