Obamacare: Your story
Oh NO NOT AGAIN!
I became ill in 2000 and I was self-employed and uninsured. I lost almost everything I had including my business, 2 homes, cars and the benefit of over 35 years of hard work! The really SAD part s that when I could no longer pay n advance my doctor of over 15 years would not see me. Because I could not get treatment I was not properly diagnosed and couldn't even get the Social Security benefits I paid for all those years! I didn't lose everything at once....it took about 5 years. After I lost everything I qualified for Medicaid and went to a clinic where I met my current Dr. who was then only a Resident. She promised an answer and it took ONLY 2 TESTS to get my diagnosis. In 2009 thanks to President Obamas stimulus I was able to start rebuilding my life buy another home and reclaim my dignity as a human being!! Now here we r again with this shutdown blocking income in my household of child support (They say it's paid but can't be released cause they r not working) (recording) ! I have been struggling with illness and struggling to take care of my family as a single parent and all these GOP can talk about r ways to cut my meager disability income not expand Medicaid in Indiana! They keep knocking those of us trying to get up right back down!!! This has to stop! My story could be your story at any time!
