Liberals Burnt by ObamaCare

Hope & Change has made the outlook so bleak that we need to lighten our loads with a little laughter:

San Francisco architect Lee Hammack says he and his wife, JoEllen Brothers, are “cradle Democrats.” They have donated to the liberal group Organizing for America and worked the phone banks a year ago for President Obama’s re-election.

Since 1995, Hammack and Brothers have received their health coverage from Kaiser Permanente, where Brothers worked until 2009 as a dietitian and diabetes educator. “We’ve both been in very good health all of our lives — exercise, don’t smoke, drink lightly, healthy weight, no health issues, and so on,” Hammack told me.

The couple – Lee, 60, and JoEllen, 59 – have been paying $550 a month for their health coverage – a plan that offers solid coverage, not one of the skimpy plans Obama has criticized. But recently, Kaiser informed them the plan would be canceled at the end of the year because it did not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. The couple would need to find another one. The cost would be around double what they pay now, but the benefits would be worse.

Looks like the hammer of collectivist authoritarianism doesn’t just come down on some other guy; it comes down on the malevolent fools who vote for it too.

Millions of moonbats are learning this lesson all across the country. But then, PBS et al. are no doubt helping them to convince themselves that it is all the fault of private insurance companies, which allegedly increase their greedy profits by losing their customers.
