RUSH: Here is today’s Obamacare disaster sob story. It is from the Weekly Standard. Headline: “Pastor Diagnosed with Cancer: ‘No Compassion in the Affordable Care Act.'”
Now, if this isn’t a death panel, I don’t know what you call it.
Are you ready? A preacher, a pastor, man of the cloth, “recently diagnosed with cancer, and who is covered under Obamacare, tells a local Iowa reporter that there’s ‘no compassion in the Affordable Care Act.’ … ‘Back in January, Pastor Angran was diagnosed with stage three cancer of the esophagus. He had insurance, but because of a previous heart condition, it did not cover the treatments he needed for his cancer.”
Preexisting condition stuff. But wait! But wait! We were all told that you were covered with preexisting conditions. The preexisting condition crowd thinks they’re covered, so they show up. So the preacher “was diagnosed with stage three cancer of the esophagus. He had insurance, but because of a previous heart condition, it did not cover the treatments he needed for his cancer,” and do you know when he found out?
He’s in the place to get his chemo.
He’s hooked up, the chemo is soon to start flowing, and they come in and they tell him “just minutes” before the chemo starts. “The pastor says, ‘One of the workers came and said let me talk to you. And so I went to talk to her. She says that we found out that your insurance does not include chemo.'” He was at the chemo place! He was all ready to get the chemo, and then: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Wait a minute. Your insurance doesn’t cover it.
