WFTV in Florida reports that a woman with cancer has been dropped from her insurance plan due to Obamacare:
"A woman in a life and death battle with cancer was dealt another devastating blow," says the Florida anchor.
"This letter makes more problems for us," says the cancer victim. "That we don't need at this moment."
The anchor continues, "She just found out she's being dropped by her insurance company because of a loophole in Obamacare. Incredible story. Gloria Cantor has been fighting this illness for months with her husband ... at her side."
"As you can imagine, this insurance problem couldn't have come at a worse time," say another anchor.
"This letter makes more problems for us we don't need at this moment," says the cancer victim.

“This CR*P is killing people! “
As was the Dem’s plan for it.
Prayers up for your friend.
Thanks. His name is Rick. It doesn’t look good.
If the press would bother, I would imagine there are thousands of similar stories across the country.
I can certainly understand the upset of being able to deal with a deadly disease and the ramifications of Obama and the Democrat’s THREE YEAR old law designed to conveniently avoid critical voting milestones.
But, as will all deceptions, the truth must out, and I commiserate with those affected. However, this article does not name or describe the ‘victim’ in any specificity other than ‘she lost coverage’. I’d like to know a little bit more about it, myself. They had enough to put her picture in the article, why not a name and a description that fully describes the circumstances?
My father in law has stomach cancer.
The docs initially thought it was only the size of a dime.
When they went in, they found it had gone from his stomach to his liver and was the size of two one dollar bills tacked together.
Q. How does Obama sleep at night?
A. First he lies on one side, then he turns over and lies on the other side.
“I also have a freind that is dying of cancer - he could not get coverage because of Obamacare. This CR*P is killing people! “
RATs are moving up the food chain from just killing the yet unborn, to killing the living! Having good health right now is imperative if you want to survive. We truly are living in Sodom and Gomorrah!
True; their stories need to be heard.
25 million - The amount of people killed by the Nazis
100 million - The amount of people killed by communists.
People think electing communists to office is a joke. No it isn’t. It gets people killed.
I’m so sorry. I have Tricare and am waiting for that shoe to drop on the military community as well.
I’m really sorry about your friend Rick. We’ll be praying for him!
Obama doesn’t care. His death panels would cut her off as being too expensive to keep alive.
There is a video, did you see that?
Didn’t Dear Leader just say the insurance company that dropped this poor man now has to reinstate him for another year? This is pitiful...beyond pathetic.
My bad....they did give her name and show her husband - but nothing else.
She is obviously from another country married to an American. The place where they did the interview was strange and very expensive looking - they did not say if this was their home. It looked like a very expensive hotel lobby.
see #15...yes, there were names for the two. NOTHING else as to income, jobs, assets or anything else.
Obama and those who supported Obamacare are going to have blood on their hands.
Obamacare is a wholly democrat law.
Democrats’ war on women.
I can tell you this much, my friends situation is totally legitimate - exactly what Obamacare was supposed to cover. His coverage was minimal when he began to have problems - he had a bump in his stomach area that was giving him pains. But since Obamacare was shutting down other avenues like medicare that would have helped him, he could not get the help he needed. Most likely, if he would have gotten the care he needed at the beginning the pains came, his prognoses could have been a whole lot better. Too much time was waisted - about six months - and now the doctor he has says he has 3 to 6 months.
I'm seeing him again this weekend. I hope to get his permission to get his story out, maybe a video interview and at least post it on YouTube.
You can get coverage, but you have to pay a lot for it. Companies cannot deny you because of ore-existing conditions.
My husband had cancer 2 years ago, so we’ve been looking into this. He’s wanting to become a software contractor, and we would have to pay for our own insurance.
I think we are looking at $2000/mo with a $6000 deductible for a gold plan for a family, of 5.
We are going through ehealth.com
I think it’s $10 co-pays and 10%.
I thought the law covered any pre-existing condition?
People have been getting dropped from their insurances that they had because they don't meet the Obamacare standard and are in limbo until they can get another policy.
The leftie media spin never stops. It's not a "loophole", it's the fundamental purpose of the law, to strip people of private coverage as a first step to socialized medicine.
