~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
Be prepared, because liberal media "fact checkers" will attack you. Are you ready for it?
I want to call your attention this morning to an effort by the Republican Party to let ordinary Americans tell their stories of what ObamaCare has done to them. Here is the site where the GOP invites you to tell your story. http://obamacosts.gop.com/act/tellus
It doesn't have to be that you lost your insurance or couldn't afford the new ObamaCare-approved alternative. Those are highly pertinent, of course, but ObamaCare hurts people in lots of other ways. Maybe your employer cut your hours to avoid the delayed-but-inevitable mandate. Maybe you lost your job entirely, or couldn't get one you wanted, because your employer needed to stay below 50 on the payroll.
Maybe you had to change doctors. Maybe you lost coverage on a prescription. Maybe you were forced onto Medicaid and subsequently stuck with the quality issues and bureaucratic headaches that always accompany government programs. Or maybe you got wrong information about the subsidy you were supposedly eligible for, only to find out after signing up that your costs were not what you were led to believe.
I've heard horror stories of family members' names somehow not being conveyed through the exchange site to the insurers, such that claims were denied. I've heard of people being told they couldn't get subsidies because they qualified for Medicaid, only to be told later they didn't qualify for Medicaid.
With a fiasco this big, surely many of you will have your own stories.
But I do want to warn you of this: If you tell your story publicly, liberal media propagandists dishonestly representing themselves as "fact checkers" will attack you. Dan told you yesterday about how these people misrepresent who they really are, then cite each other as evidence that ObamaCare is wonderful and everyone who cited problems with it is a liar. If you put your story out there, they may very well go after you too. I want to encourage you to do it. I just want you to go in with eyes wide open.
The truth needs champions, and if the government has harmed you with an ill-conceived law, that needs to be known. It would be nice if the media saw its job as holding government accountable for the harm it does to the people. But that's not the news media we have today, so you'll have to be prepared to fight them as well as the White House.
But a lot of people will be on your side. The Republican Party will be on your side. The Herman Cain Show will be on your side. I hope you haven't had any problems, but if you have, I hope you'll speak up. You'll be serving the entire nation, not just yourself, if you do.
