Posted on 11/06/2013 10:10:05 AM PST by Hoodat
San Francisco architect Lee Hammack says he and his wife, JoEllen Brothers, are cradle Democrats. They have donated to the liberal group Organizing for America and worked the phone banks a year ago for President Obamas re-election.
Since 1995, Hammack and Brothers have received their health coverage from Kaiser Permanente, where Brothers worked until 2009 as a dietician and diabetes educator. Weve both been in very good health all of our lives exercise, dont smoke, drink lightly, healthy weight, no health issues, and so on, Hammack told me.
The couple Lee, 60, and JoEllen, 59 have been paying $550 a month for their health coverage a plan that offers solid coverage, not one of the skimpy plans Obama has criticized. But recently, Kaiser informed them the plan would be canceled at the end of the year because it did not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. The couple would need to find another one. The cost would be around double what they pay now, but the benefits would be worse.
From all of the sob stories Ive heard and read, ours is the most extreme, Lee told me in an email last week. . . .

“Yeah, it’s a sob story all right. Not only did you vote for this (twice), you even donated money and worked the phone banks to ensure this happened to you. Please do America a favor and never vote again. Ever. You obviously don’t have the IQ for it.”
You reap what you sow. No sympathy from me.
Were not changing our views because of this situation"
Karma is a bitch.
Cradle idiots. Useful idiots. Now discarded idiots.
I’m sorry...but those two even LOOK like libtards.....
They need to consider how much suffering they, and other shallow minded fools like them, brought to millions of good people with their Obama Bromance.
Hey, F#$k Y*&, both of you.
We tried to tell you, we tried to warn you.
You two are the direct cause of this, for all of us.
Now pay for your own abortions
Pay for your own penis pump.
Comment after the story sums it up:
“Shorter version: He lied to our face. But we still support him. Now, how can we get other people to pay us a subsidy?”
Democrats and leftist voters being negatively affected by ObamaCare? That makes us happy-— happier if they convert from their evil ways.
Could someone please translate? All I read was: WHAAA...WHAA...WHAWHAWHA......
I always enjoy a good schadenfreude story.
Let’s see..they campaigned for and raised money for Obama..now their health insurance premiums are going through the roof..my “Give a sh*t meter” is basically at ZERO..could care less, they voted for him, let them choke on their higher premiums
“...We’re not changing our views because of this situation...” so says the couple shafted by the Democrat’s ACA.
Life is hard. Going through life stupid is REALLY hard.
Boo-f’n-hoo-they made their bed and deserve to lie in it, but unfortunately there were enough of them to vote so the rest of have to, as well. We need a current issues test for potential voters so that the uninformed can’t cast a ballot.
According to the “expert” on Fox last night, this is false, does not happen, etc. Wonder if the can see the Pyramids from De Nile.
“they implored their dear leaders for an exception for themselves: “
And this is how Democrats will keep them on the hook, always promising to “make it BETTER!”. And they will swallow the load, whole, because to not do so might get them kicked out of the Cool People’s Club.

They should keep themselves better informed:
Stage-4 cancer patient has her insurance canceled in order to make way for Obamacare
...Were not changing our views because of this situation... so says the couple shafted by the Democrats ACA.
If they changed their views, changed who they support, they would have to admit that the perceived moral superiority of being “Liberal!” was false. And that would harm their egos, and get them ostracized from local society.
I’m sure there’s an exemption out there for the Obama faithfuls who donated and campaigned and all that good stuff... After all, is that who the exemptions are for?
“We believe that the Act is good for health care, the economy, & the future of our nation”
Can’t fix stupid.
“The couple Lee, 60, and JoEllen, 59 have been paying $550 a month for their health coverage a plan that offers solid coverage, not one of the skimpy plans Obama has criticized.

We live in N California where probably 70% of the non medi Cal population are Kaiser patients.
Late last month we started hearing stories like this one or ones where the patients weren’t cancelled, they were told of big price increases coming their way in 2014. Higher co-pays, higher rx costs, higher deductibles and higher monthly rates.
Of course with our Savant Mediots in the media, this reality is being kept quiet and not apparerently not investigated.
If the Obama administration could find a way to take their good health, and re-distribute it to the fat slobs, they would do it.
Things like this is what they voted for, My FRiend. Not once but twice. Now that they are finally getting what they voted for, they are crying like babies. They also ridiculed and mocked those who tried to warn them. Hell with them, let them cry.
They voted for this, so now live with it.
You're old. You're white. You're expendable.
I've used you for what I need you. Now, get out of the way and die and make room for the third worlders I'm inviting to take your place.
California is learning what the cost of COMMUNISM is. The Happy Hippy Liberals will have to cut down on those Napa dinners, and Russian River reds.
THIS IS WHAT YOU VOTED FOR YOU EFFING CRADLE SOCIALIST MORONS!!!!
WE WERE WARNING YOU FOR YEARS BEFOREHAND ABOUT THIS - YOU CALLED US RACIST AND EXTREMIST!!!
STEW IN IT YOU COMMIE HIPPIE BASTARDS!!!
They chose it.
And once they nationalize healthcare, those names on the TEA Party list will find that they have to wait months for those medical procedures they need while the Obama donors skip ahead to the front of the line.
Eventually, we will get to a point where we have progressive water fountains and TEA Party water fountains. TEA Party people will have to ride on the back of the bus (if they're even let on the bus at all). To make things simpler, TEA Party people will have to wear yellow six-pointed stars on the front of their clothing with a big brown 'T' in the middle. Eventually, they will begin to open up re-education camps for those T-star-wearers until they can come up with a more final solution . . .
(And people in 1932 said this would never happen)
Oh well. Can’t say they weren’t warned.
Wait ‘til you guys get even OLDER. You’ll be assigned for termination by the Death Panels.
“They will never do that,” you say.
“If you like your plan you can keep it. Period.” Do you remember that?
Kaiser Permanente has many other plans available.
“Thats what hes leaning toward lowering his salary or shifting more money toward a retirement account and applying for a subsidy.”
From all of the sob stories Ive heard and read, ours is the most extreme, Lee told me in an email last week
What ever, most extreme to them means going to starbucks only 3 times a week and only two vacations a year.
I know of several people who this is really hurting them and forcing them out of retirement.
If you voted for it. You deserve it!
These lieberals are refusing to share their wealth with the poor underclass who will get the subsidies from ObamaCare? How unpatriotic of them.
Feel the pain of leftism that their kind has foisted on us all. Happy misery-—welcome to our world you voted for—idiots.
RUSH caller: Susan 45 from Glendale CA (Sep 30 , 2009)
Mom, 7 children lawyer
Rush, it’s a huge honor for me to speak to you and I hope I can keep my voice level because I am so passionate, I’m as passionate as you are about this country. I’m a conservative, I’ve listened to you for 25 years. I’m married, I have seven kids, and when you were telling me about how... all of the shenanigans that they’re going to do... in the Senate, to pass two different Senate bills then slam ‘em together, attach them to some house bill about TARP and then jam it through and jam it down our throats I got furious, and then I listened to what you said about the Michigan mom who was watching some kids before they went to school and how the Michigan state came down on her accusing her of running an illegal day care and you’re... you’re right, what they’re going to do is they’re going to threaten our health and they’re going to threaten the health of our children if I don’t comply with their health care I’m not going to be able to get my children the medicine they need...
Rush: No... it’s not... whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa... it’s not if you don’t comply with their health care, it’s not if you’re a good citizen in support of the liberals running the country.
Yes sir, and I’m not, I’m a conservative. You know what, I’m 45, I might fall and break my hip in the next ten years, they’re going to have to give me a shot cause they’re not going to want me to be healed. And they’re going to do this to my children. It’s like you said... they are the party of abortion... they are the party of euthanasia. They are trying to wipe out senior citizens who are... maybe not as useful to the Democrat National Committee as they should be, who are not contributing enough to them. And I am outraged and furious and my question to you... because I’m a political nobody. I’m just out here on the left coast in la-la land watching all the liberals run our California state bankrupt. What can we do? Legally, morally, to take this country back. I want people to stand up and I want them to vote these these... these criminals, these pedophiles out of office. I want them to take back the state of California and make it a golden state, and I want them to take back Washington, but we’re little people, and we marched, 2,000,000 of us down to Washington and the press, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, not one of them shows pictures on the news not one of them will report anything, in fact they cover it up.
I’ve talked to so many people on... on the phone... just neighbors , who are liberal and some of them are conservatives, both sides, and I tell them these things... go to Fox news, look at this. No one sees the truth because... the travesty of all of this. Part of this is politics... it’s normal, I understand, it’s two party, we’re going to fight and tussle over what’s right and wrong, and then, you know, we’re going to win some, lose some. But the damning thing, today, is that the press, the press, is betraying us. And we have no way, just us, we, the little political moms, nobodies, I’m... I’m a mother, and I have no one to listen to, to go to on the news, except for you and Fox. Tell us what we can do in 2010, other than voting for Sarah Palin, which I will do, but I need to know, because I don’t have much hope, I sure don’t have hope from Obama, I need hope from Rush, and I want you to please, tell us what we can do because this is the life of my children. They’re on the line. They can put me out to pasture, but yes, they’ve got me over a barrel because I will do anything to save the life of my children, and if it means that I’ve got to kiss some big Democrat’s rear end to get the health care for my baby, I’ll have to do it. And that sickens me, because they are MY employees
I need to know because I don’t have much hope.
Tell us what we can do because this is the life of my children, they’re on the line.
And that sickens me because they’re my employees, I’m paying their salaries, I’m paying for their fancy office of doctors down at the... what you were talking about... down at the House of representatives and Senate, they just get to walk in, pay $503 specialists flown in, pharmacy right there, on their hour, probably open 24 hours a day, nobody has to wait... they get because I’m paying for it, I’m paying for it, it’s coming out of my children’s allowances.
And they’re taking it without listening, without representing us, like you said, the small “r.” I’m not being represented. I’ve called Boxer’s office, I’ve called Adam Schiff, who’s my so-called representative. They are very polite, the little people on the phone but the people who are running this country, don’t listen to us, there are millions of us and we’re all furious. And no one, no one is even reporting what is being said, and I’m watching the country that I love, that my father fought for in WWII, that my father-in-law, was wounded and got the purple heart for and I’m watching it just.. just... being taken, just like candy from a baby, oh we’ll help you, we’ll give you health care... here’s a lollypop, go away.
And nobody’s doing anything. I’m sorry to be so angry, but I need hope, and I need to know how to counteract these shenanigans. This is not what we put people in government for. To run little bitty side bills, smash ‘em together, and then vote ‘em under the carpet into a different health care bill that’s languishing.
That’s dirty politics, and it shouldn’t be happening. It should be up-and-down vote. And you’re right, the 63 new judges coming on, they’re going to... that’s going to cement, that’s going to absolutely cement their ability to write law, instead of legislate, they can just send it to the judges. The judges will rubber-stamp it.
We’ll just write the law... never mind conservatism, never mind reading what the law actually says. And I look at this, I see this happening every day, I listen to you, and I’m to the point where I don’t even know if I should listen any more, cause it... it... it... I’m so passionate and I’m so furious to watch all this, to hear it all happening, and I feel so powerless for the first time in my life.
I’m glad Mrs. Obama is proud of her country for the first time in her life. I as a mother, as a nobody, I am ashamed of my government, for the first time in my life. And I need to know, how to combat this, especially in 2010, what can I do today, NOW, to help, to revitalize these... these namby-pamby liberal-conservative RINOs in our Senate, and in our government, who are just voting to get along and... (Imitates) “I want to get re-elected.” That’s nonsense. They’re not standing up for what’s good and clean and right. They’re not standing up for our Constitution. They should be all thrown out, every last one of ‘em. And I don’t know how to mobilize people, but you do Rush, you do, you have the power, and with... with great gifts, God gives great responsibility, and I beg you, please, please, give us hope, and lead us... because this cannot stand, they cannot keep doing this... this is wrong. (end of segment string).
Note to all DUmmies:
There is no free breakfast.
There is no free lunch.
There is no free dinner.
And there is no free healthcare.
You voted for this trash and I hope you enjoy wallowing in the mud.
Well, that’s $500 a month less they have to donate to OFA
