I took my wife of 52 years to the doctor today for her cancer check. They informed her that this would be her last check up because Obamacare wont cover her after age of 70.
I came home and was sitting around thinking of the things to come and I thought of how next the coal industry will be basically shut down and all those people that would be out of work. Then I thought, wait. Wasn'tt it the coal miners that got the union rolling? Well, to make a long story short, as far as I am concerned they and their families can kiss my arse. They have been on strike for their pittally tandrum without ever given one thought how it affected the rest of the country. It was all about them.
They at least get a pass on Obama care, the thing they were instrumental in forcing on me and my family. I worked all my life and never received 1 day of unemployment, food stamps or other government assistance and tried to insure that my wife and my insurance needs would be met in our old age. Now you union hooligan's can get out here and eat your share of crap. Pay back is hell when you deal with democrats. You become useless to them and in the trash you go. They have no honor.
Yes, I am now one of those angry white men. Screw you and your family like youve done mine for so long.

"I worked all my life and never received 1 day of unemployment, food stamps or other government assistance"
Me neither, now that I reflect upon it. Thankx.

Isn’t a review board of 8 retired doctors in each hospital part of the Obamacare mess? Can you take your wife’s case to this so called hospital review board and ask about getting her more care if she needs it?

Perhaps it's time to inform the people in this country of this incident. If it was me, and it could easily be because I'm almost 70, I would contact my local media, newspaper via letters to the editor, talk radio, etc. (use your imagination) and explain to them just what is happening to your wife. Because nobody will believe this unless someone tells them first hand.
And secondly, I would check with a cancer hospital in your vicinity for testing and care if need be. I live near Roswell Park in Bflo., NY and I know they treat people who can't afford to pay for their own care. Do not give up because you have a door closed in your face. Throw this right back into the face of the politicians and the media. Do not keep this incident to yourself for all of our sakes.

Doesn’t she have Medicare and a Medicare supplement?

(Moderation in defense of your country is NO virtue. Let Freedom Ring.)
I don't know about your wife's situation but it's not uncommon to stop checking patients who had been cancer free for a substantial length of time. My mother encountered that. It's possible that may be a factor.
Congratulations on the long marriage and I hope for many more!
