Obamacare Costs Cancer-Striken Republican His Doctor
January 28, 2014 - 8:52 am
Cancer-stricken Sen. Tom Coburn revealed Tuesday that his health insurance under Obamacare doesn’t cover his oncologist, but said he still is receiving excellent care.
“I’m doing well from a health standpoint, got great docs,” Coburn said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday when asked about his health. “Fortunately — even though my new coverage won’t cover my specialist — I’m going to have great care and I have a great prognosis.”
The Oklahoma Republican’s spokesman confirmed to POLITICO that since the senator enrolled in his health insurance plan under Obamacare, his coverage has been reduced and he lost coverage for his cancer specialist. Coburn will continue to pay out of his won pocket and see the oncologist, his office said.
“If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” Obama lied.
One of Obama’s stated purposes for Obamacare was to keep people from going bankrupt if they came down with a major illness or suffered a catastrophic accident.
Most Americans don’t have the means to pay for specialists out of pocket. Obamacare will kill them.
