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.”

I wonder if she is registered as a conservative. Bet they will use a persons political leanings as a determination for access.

A heartfelt plea to someone with no heart and a soul as black as coal, will go nowhere.

Unbelievable. I have two close friends who have just been diagnosed with breast cancer. If this happened to either one of them, I would be standing in front in my Senator’s face in no time. Speaking of which, I have a private meeting with Jeff Flake on Thursday, anything you’d like me to ask?

Don’t you know? Obamacare is going to save everybody.

Liberals have MORE LOVE, and they CARE MORE.

Once again the Liberals project what they plan onto Republicans and then bash the Republicans for it:

Obama could not care less about ANYONE’s health much less their healthcare/insurance plans. Isn’t it clear enough by now it’s simply a control issue? A Destroy freedom of choice issue? Tax the hell out of 90% of the population since only 10% will sign up for Obamacare...and 90% of those likely so “poor” they won’t have to pay anyway issue?

It’s ALL about taxing the hell out of everyone for the pretense of “healthcare”.

Speaking of which, I have a private meeting with Jeff Flake on Thursday, anything you’d like me to ask?

How about aggressive and successful deportation action on illegal aliens deemed the most undesirable (felons, criminals, gang bangers) as a prerequisite to opening talks on a wider amnesty?

How about special relief bills for citizens like this who were damaged by ObamaCare before further funding to implement or publicize it?

Anything to ask Jeff Flake?

LET HIM KNOW how disgusted constitutional conservatives are with his being McCain's water boy. Why didn't he support Ted Cruz, stand by him during the 21 hours, and cast every vote necessary to stop the funding of Obamacare? Let Senator Flake know that constitutional conservatives are not willing to compromise about the invasion of the US: the invaders should go home and stay in their homelands, jobs should be EVerified, US jobs should go to US citizens.

Do Senator Flake and the other younger senators who got elected as constitutional conservatives know how fed up we are? Make sure he does. Thank you.

Yeah but Sandra Fluck gets free birth control. Come on. Just because she has breast cancer and her insurance is all messed up from Obamacare “SANDRA FLUCK GETS FREE BIRTH CONTROL!!!” That’s way more cool.

Obama has assured us that the NSA data mining will not be used to spy on Americans.

——Enjoy the good belly laugh with that one. There’s no doubt in my mind that scumbag president is using every agency in the deaderal government to “punish” his enemies. None whatsoever.

Prayers up for this woman to get her surgery and treatments.

Obama lies and people die. I know Mom is in a better place and is away from Obongo’s BS but I still miss her.

My heart and prayers go out to them. Mom had inflammatory breast cancer and she passed away from it on November 18th. I miss her dearly but at least she does not have to put up with Obongo's crap anymore, she's with God now. If this happened to my mother, I'd be raising a stink too.

I have a question for all of Congress. Why doesn’t TriCare or Medicare cover respite care for veterans, but Medicaid covers it for welfare queens?

I’m caring for my disabled husband at home, but it’s been five years, and instead of getting easier it’s getting harder. If I don’t get some help, I’ll have to put him in a nursing home. Why? Why can’t he get the care he needs? He earned it. He’s paying extra for TriCare and Medicare in order to get the best coverage available to military retirees, and they’re giving that coverage away to people who haven’t earned it and probably never will.

So please, ask him why, and what’s being done to fix this.

If anyone should be receiving the best medical coverage provided by the U.S. government, it should be the military and our veterans. They truly did earn it.
