Recent College Grad Claims Obamacare Has 'Raped My Future'
A university graduate, 26 year old Ashley Dionne, posted an open letter on the Facebook page of conservative radio host, Dennis Praeger detailing the negative effects Obamacare has had on her life. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in 2009 and went back to school to obtain a second degree but has not been able to get a job that offers more than 32 hours a week. Obamacare takes her monthly health costs from $75.00 to $319.00 with a $6,000.00 deductible. She feels her future has been "raped" and she qualifies as the very same "working poor" this law was supposed to help.
Whenever proponents of Obamacare are told of these anecdotal stories outlining the harm that the Affordable Care Act has inflicted on people, they respond with either a denial of it being true, that it only applies to a "small" percentage of people or that the "sacrifice" is worth it to supply health care to those who did not previously have it. In other words, they greet it with a shrug. It is hard held tenet of collectivists that some have to be sacrificed for the "greater good" in order to make things "fair". What is fair and the greater good is defined by the elites. The elites, however, are not subject to these sacrifices since they need to be unencumbered with fiscal realities in order to have time to come up with more sacrificial projects to interfere with the lives of others.
For these enlightened elites, America is divided into three groups: dependents, those who rule over them and, the rest, collateral damage.
