Woman suffering from Lupus loses her insurance under Obamacare
« on: February 01, 2014, 09:39:29 PM »

Emilie Lamb voted for Obama in 2012 hoping that Obamacare would benefit her. Now the 39-year-old suffering from Lupus has seen her premiums dramatically increase from $57 to $373 per month. She was recently the special guest of Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) during Obama’s State of the Union address.

Emilie was able to manage her condition fairly well before Obamacare was implemented. Now she has been forced to take a second job to cover the calculated $6,000 increase in out-of-pocket health care costs per year.

After her old policy with ConverTN was cancelled because of Obamacare, she had no choice but to purchase a more expensive plan. ConverTN requested a waiver from the federal government to grandfather her plan, but they were denied three times.

In a new ad for Americans for Prosperity, Emilie Lamb delivers a personal message of what Obama’s lies have done to her life.

“President Obama, you broke your promise, and people like me got hurt.”

Looks like her old insurer was trying to (gasp!) help her. That doesn't quite fit the official Obamacare propaganda that all medical insurance companies are evil and heartless.
