Obamacare: Your story
No negotiation impacting my life
I am one of the working poor. I work full-time. My coworkers and I are stunned at the cost of ACA, we can't afford it, whether through our employer or the exchange. I was hoping the President would negotiate during this shutdown so they could fix everything during a 1year delay. I'm upset that the shutdown went the way it did because now I have to get a part-time job just to pay for something I don't even want. Obamas friends don't have to, while we are slammed with the bill. Its not right that he received public support because we believed the things he said about it. I feel angry that while he's been ignoring the economy, he was pushing something that was misrepresented to us. How is a $5000 deductable going to help me? Obama came across to me as a spoiled kid during this whole thing. Isnt he suppose to govern? He cared more about getting full surrender then addressing the problems in his law.
Looking for a second job now...or I wont have insurance..I dont know. That's how the shutdown has effected me.
