Lori Gottlieb, a lock-step liberal writer for the New York Times, has just been mugged by Obamacare.
And by those whom she thought were her friends.
Ms. Gottlieb had the chutzpah to complain about her ObamaCare-KafkaCare experience in the New York Times, and she is shocked, just shocked, that the outpouring of sympathy she expected, has become a torrent of self-righteous abuse.
The Anthem Blue Cross representative who answered my call told me that there was a silver lining in the cancellation of my individual P.P.O. policy and the $5,400 annual increase that I would have to pay for the Affordable Care Act-compliant option: now if I have Stage 4 cancer or need a sex-change operation, I’d be covered regardless of pre-existing conditions. Never mind that the new provider network would eliminate coverage for my and my son’s long-term doctors and hospitals.
Let’s see, Ms. Gottlieb only has to shell out $5,400 extra so that she can lose the doctors she likes. But look what she gets in return: Treatment for Stage 4 cancer. Which she doesn’t have. Plus, deeply confused people can now have their genitals mutilated. Maybe Lori will wake up tomorrow morning and decide she’s really Larry. That’s when she’ll be grateful for the wisdom of ObamaCare.
