This Is Why Obamacare Needed to Be Defunded

We've cried out to those who represent us in Washington and they've essentially given we the people the middle finger. 

Sorry, but when millions of Americans are suffering under Obamacare and begging Republicans to stop it.....and Republicans ignore the pleas for help, it IS essentially giving us the middle finger. We gave them the largest Republican majority in the House in over 80 years and delivered the Senate to Republicans. What have they done!? NOTHING except lie about their intentions to fight Obamacare. They were never going to try to stop the law. 

We had the same health care plan for a decade until Onamacare made it unaffordable. The company offered new plans. This screen shot shows the cost of a blood product my son infuses weekly. He did IVIG in the hospital once a month from 2000 through 2005.  In 2005 we switched to SCIG at home. This medication had a $16 copay from 2005 until the year after the law passed. Then the copay doubled. Still affordable, right? 

Last year we had to figure out how to pay over $4000 the first refill and over $1500 the second refill.  For the first time in 19 years with kids who have chronic healt issues, we had to apply for a drug company copay assistance program. This year, the program changed. No doubt due to the number of people who know have unaffordable copays due to Obamacare. 

We paid close to $500 and copay assistance paid $500, leaving us a balance of $3499.75.  We have to refill this again in a week or so and it will cost $1199.31 plus the balance due from the last fill. 

The people in DC exempted themselves from the law and they are out of touch millionaires who have no concept of what the average American family deals with day to day. 

This is one reason why we've been fighting to defund and repeal Obamacare. We are only one of millions of American families who are being harmed by the law. 

With the exception of a very few in DC, the political class doesn't care that the blood product my son infuses weekly is now unaffordable. Virginia Foxx is in the district lying and telling people she's actually fought to stop Obamcare. It's pathetic.
