(Video) #Obamacare – “Victims of government” UPDATED: Gateway Pundit to lose his insurance

From Senator Ron Johnson* (R- WI), the story of Kathi Rose, a minister in Wisconsin who learned she was losing the health insurance she was satisfied with and that replacing it would cost her roughly $4,000 per year more. This is helping people? Making them “more secure?”

As Johnson points out in the video, this is not only a financial hardship for Kathi and her family, but also an invasion of their liberty and a threat to the health of her family. This is just one example of a story being played out again and again across the nation and illustrates once more why this anti-constitutional monstrosity has to be repealed.

*A freshman, elected in the “Tea Party” class of 2010. And one of the very good candidates we found that year. Turned out to be a good senator, too.

RELATED: Nearer to home for many of us is the story of Jim Hoft, aka “Gateway Pundit,” who suffered a near-fatal disease earlier, but was saved by the excellent care paid for by his insurance — care he still needs. Guess what? Jim is losing his insurance and may lose the doctors he trusts. To quote Jim, “Why is our government doing this to us?”

    It is incomprehensible how the snowball effect seems to be continuously shoving Obhammudcare down our collective throats, each horror story worse than the last. And no one who is responsible is being held to account.

    When I was coaching, losing coaches got fired. In addition, their failures were laid out for public inspection every game day. They did not have a method for obfuscating and spinning a self-serving story in order to continue to fail at taxpayer expense.

    I think it important to remember this: The definition of “people,” when used in the Democrap context of “helping people,” is, any low-info potential voter who will vote for as many “freebies” as possible.

    Obviously, the middle class and all those losing their insurance, jobs, and/or having their work hours cut to escape employer-provided insurance mandates are not “people” and do not count toward who is helped by this flopping abortion of legislation.

    As pointed out on FNC this evening, Congress’ oversight responsibility over the implementation of the law began when the law was passed 3 1/2 years ago, not just when the website rolled out Oct. 1. Where have they been? Taking the long view, the political view, for the whole thing to be such a disaster, if it ultimately resulted in the rejection and defeat of the Progressive Statists from 2014 on, it might be worth a little pain. /but does anyone seriously believe the lefties are going to accept defeat, or the sheeple are going to become ferocious, headbutting rams? Wishing and hoping, but not holding breath.

  4. Obamacare is just a mechanism for bridging to a single payer system and the total socialization of medicine. For all of the class warfare rhetoric of the left, they are actively creating a system where only the wealthy will be able to get the best healthcare while the poor that they constantly harp about are screwed. The U.S. is already a welfare State with half of American on some form of government assistance. It only gets worse from here.

  5. @William Stout–Good points. And 47% pay no income tax.

  6. Carlos says:

    @ William Stout: Your reasons are why I truly believe there are few substantial differences between the major parties now, at least at the “leadership” level, because the Repubs are all too eager to destroy the middle class, too, and make it a two-tier society – the wealthy and the poor. Their (the Repubs’) lies are different and the rhetoric isn’t as vicious, but they’re still lies.

    I wonder who they think will own and run all the small-medium to small businesses when they get to that point? And who will have any money to pay taxes to support the lifestyle they’ve become accustomed to?

    The ‘establishment’ (incumbent Republicans and Democrats) have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. They need to keep ‘we the people’ divided by religion, gender, race and economic standing. One party will find success stories while the other finds the failures. With people pointing fingers at the other guy, no one pays attention to the incumbents who are getting richer and more powerful every day.
