When pressed on the negative impact Obamacare is having on average folks, Democrats choose to focus on those who are being helped by the healthcare law.
But conservative pundit and authorAnn Coulter highlighted just how devastating the impact can be in a recent appearance on Fox & Friends.
This does have real world consequences: I got up the other morning and got an email from a friend saying, My sister almost died because of Obamacare, Coulter told host Tucker Carlson.
Coulter said the friends sister lost her coverage when Blue Shield pulled out of California because of Obamacare. Despite running a fever, the woman did not go to the emergency room because she had no insurance, until she went into septic shock.
As Coulter explained, her friend later called to say her sister passed away over the weekend.
That is completely shocking, Carlson said.
But it isnt, Coulter replied. Its expected. We knew this would happen. Its a horrible story, and people need to know about these stories. I emailed her and asked her if I could tweet this, and she said, Julie would be very happy for you to tweet this.
The best-selling author took to Twitter to further draw attention to the negative impact of Obamacare, and supporters were quick to weigh in with their thoughts on the matter:

Didn’t she support the founder of Obamacare for president?
Ann can expect Dingy Harry to start attacking her and calling her a liar in ...5...4...3...2....
Dupe. As you know, this is old news and was posted months ago.
Coulter STILL supports the father of ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE,
Even with this, one bets she will
still her push Romney for 2016.
Like Coulter....this is useless old, old news.
Died, or almost died?
Eat something, Ann!
My Canadian Health Care is starting to look a lot better lately.
Not a Canada ping.
Not voting for Romney brought us into this huge mess.
He was the chance we had to oust Obama. Some folks preferred Obama and stayed home . They deserve the applause or blame.
They will most likely do it again in 2016
And? Some of us didn't see it months ago.
Read the article!
You are on too many drugs.
Romney the RAT, and sponsor of surrogates
who attacked both Gov. Palin and the Speaker,
DID NOT WANT TO BE PRESIDENT.
Romney the RAT put Obama into OFFice, himself, twice.
If Romney the RAT did not exist, Obama NEVER
would have been pRes_ _ent, and there would
have been neither gay marriage, polygamy, or ObamaCARE.
So? Are we to post more old news articles from months ago because you weren’t here? Or maybe perhaps you can make a few clicks and read all the old news you want.
says her first notice was "the other morning and got an email from a friend saying, My sister almost died because of Obamacare,
the next notice was:"Coulter explained, her friend later called to say her sister passed away over the weekend."
Need a cup of coffee to see/read better? :)
O’bummerCare uses that as an excuse - but the 30,000 pages and counting behemoth has a lot less to do with health insurance than the total control/tracking of our every move.
Health care was the excuse...people not understanding this is a great help to them
So she got insurance as soon as she went into septic shock?
Pretty steep qualification requirement.
a bit snarky, aren’t we?
Sorry, but it happens sometimes.
WTF does that even mean? How did Romney impact the 2008 election?
No one cares. We’re glad the article was posted.
Yep, in Feb. 2 months ago - "MONTHS ago"?????
This is the first time I've heard the story.
“Eat something, Ann!”
You seem to be completely unaware of body types. She’s a tall, thin-boned type, like my ex, who did start eating more. She now has an unpleasant-looking gut, fat thighs, and a big butt. I have no problem with a tall, thin Coulter!
LIAR! </hairy reid>
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
Nonsense. Like gay marriage, and polygamy, Romney began DeathCARE.
sorry I asked
Don't be an a****e.
Does that make it any less tragic?
It’s new to me!
