In today’s Wall Street Journal, Edie Littlefield Sundby chronicles her struggle to survive Stage 4 gallbladder cancer.
ObamaCare has just cut Ms. Sundby’s private insurance, making her fight to stay alive that much harder.
As if that weren’t bad enough, ObamaCare has cut her off from her team of medical specialists. That’s right — the doctors who treated her until now are off-limits.
No doubt, the radical leftists who are the Democrat party (there are no moderate Democrats; it is a party of crypto- and not-so-crypto-Marxists/socialists) will inform Ms. Sundby that the “new ObamaCare insurance” is far superior to her “old, sub-standard plan.” All she has to do is go to healthcare.gov, flip through the various plans, choose one, and then sign on the (virtual) dotted line.
Ms. Sundby already explored the government’s new plans, and they are — take a deep breath, folks — 40 to 50 percent more expensive than her current plan.
But according to Democrats, Ms. Sundby is stupid. And wrong.
She is too stupid to choose her own insurance, too dumb to understand that some random government bureaucracy — think the DMV, only bigger and nastier — can do a much better job of choosing her health insurance for her.
