Yes, NASCAR’s Kenny Shepherd “liked his health insurance and wanted to keep it”, but like 5 million other Americans he is now facing tough (and unwanted) choices. This is the January 31st statement he has given exclusively to PolitiChicks.tv:
I just got off the phone with the doctor I have seen for more than 20 years and he gave me the bad news that due to Obamacare he can no longer see me. On December 1st I found out my old insurance policy jumped up to $1,000 per month with an $11,000.00 deductible. Today I learned the new insurance I have is not accepted by my doctor. So if I want to continue seeing the doctor I have a 20-year relationship with my only option is to pay him cash.
My doctor explained to me he is directing all of his patients that are no longer covered to urgent care. How backed up are urgent care and emergency rooms now because of Obamacare?
This is from the Whitehouse website:
Reform isn’t about putting government in charge of your health insurance; it’s about putting you in charge of your health insurance. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. Reform Will Stop “Rationing” — Not Increase It. Reform will not lead to a “government takeover” of health care or “rationing.
Actually there are three lies in that one White House statement.
1. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
2. If you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan. 3. Reform will stop rationing.
Once they destroy our healthcare system with reform, it will be 100% government run with a single payer system. Meaning we will all pay a fee to the government (a medical tax), and we get rationed government run healthcare in return.
Here is my statement: Vote against any politician that voted FOR OBAMACARE, PERIOD.
