As many of you here know, I have two special need children, one autistic, and one born with a birth defect who is on a feeding tube.

We knew our insurance would go up because of Obamacare.  We were expecting to get screwed.  We were not expecting to get the you can not keep your insurance letter!! 

As of November 1, we have NO INSURANCE. Our plan is gone.   Thanks frigging Obama!! 

I am beyond mad, scared, upset..

To get Obamacare coverage our deductable is going to triple, as is our monthly premium.  Thanks Obamacare.

Can I get Medicaid just for the kids, nope.  We work so we don't qualify.

Can we get on healthcare.gov?  Nope. It doesn't flipping work.

Can our inurance broker help us out.. Nope because the insurance exchanges are not working.

So all you Obama supporters.. how do afford to get my daughter feeds?  my sons therapy? 

I wasn't draining the system.  We work and paid our own way, until Obama and his lies.

I am so flipping out, as is my husband.

It is looking like a roof over the kids head or doing our daughters feeds. 


So much for if you like your insurance bullsh*t.  Flipping LIAR.  For some of us,it is literally a matter of life and death.

You know the many do not care about you or your kids- they would tell you that they are your responsibility-to work longer and harder, and that after 1 with special needs, you should have known better...both sides are against people who are outside the box (which by your description you are). There is a website out of San Francisco that is helping people who have questions-they are using some parts of the federal software to help get people signed up on exchanges. Let me see if I can find the name of the site.

I am sorry for your situation.

Reach out to your state rep. They have access to things the public doesn't. I needed help with something and my rep's office was awesome to work with. Good luck!

I am so sorry this is happening to you. I had wondered about those like yourself...and how many there are.

What state are you in and do you have any ties to the military. I might have some resorces..military or not.

I have been waiting weeks on that flipping website to work. I am optimistic about these state and private alternatives to ACA.

 You can call, you do not need the website to enroll

Quoting sweet-a-kins:

Yes.

And no.

You can call, but at least in NJ, they are telling people to wait.  We have tried three times.

 If call volume is high? what is the reason?

I am so sorry this is happening. My thoughts are with you and hope they come up with some alternative to the lies that have been told
