This is awful.

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee.

Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended up lasting twelve. My heart was severely damaged. Dr. Lee later told me the surgery was one of the most difficult of his career. He also said I only had a few days to live without the surgery.

Thanks to the excellent insurance I carried I was able to receive life-saving medical treatment at St. Louis University.

This week I found out I am going to lose my insurance. The company that carried me is leaving the Missouri market. I will have to find something else.

I am one of the millions who will be looking for new insurance. God willing, I will be able to keep my doctors at St. Louis University. I trust them.  They saved my life.  Please pray for me and the millions of working Americans who are going through this same ordeal.

Why is our government doing this to us?

Obamacare supporters, do you have an answer?

There are 14 Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield plans available on the exchange for a resident of St. Louis County

Dr. Richard Lee of St. Louis Hospital appears to accept ALL of these plans

I urge Mr. Hoft to go look at his options. I suspect he will find a plan that works for him.

"Why is our government doing this to us?"

Because they are evil, drunk on power they've wrongfully, forcibly usurped and have an insatiable desire to control the lives of others. Next question.
