Look At The Lines, & Don't Miss Stephanie Miller's Story

Via Daily Kos

The corporate media doesn’t want you to see these images of massive lines across the country of people signing up for Obamacare. They want to bury the inconvenient truth.Whenever someone says the media is liberal, I laugh, because if the media was truly liberal these images would be plastered everywhere.  Instead, the media is engaging in a blackout.

Oh, but if one ridiculous junk insurance policy is cancelled, the media ignites a firestorm, with wall to wall bleating.

The corrupt New York Times even had the gall to call ACA, “Obama’s Katrina”.

In Katrina nearly 2,000 people were drowned to death, hundred of thousands of people lost their homes, over $80,000,000,000 dollars in property damage, and the pathetic Times is so desperate to manufacture false equivalences, so they can cover for Republican crimes, that they disgustingly equate that catastrophe with 17 million people getting health insurance for the first times in their lives.

Sickening.

But they can’t stop the internet.

President Obama received a hug from a tearful Stephanie Miller whose sister, Kelly Hines, died of colon cancer at the age of 37.“I thanked him for the getting the Affordable Health Act passed,” she said.  “The President replied he would keep on fighting for us and that our fight is not over.”

Miller said her sister, Kelly Hines, died from colon cancer four years ago because she could not afford proper health insurance. She had no employer-provided coverage

Hines soon began a new job where she was given employer-sponsored health care coverage, but as a new employee she needed to be present in the workplace, which ultimately interfered with her cancer treatment.

Hines clocked anywhere from 40 to 80 hours a week, despite her weakening condition. “She worked until she couldn’t anymore so that she could provide for her kids,” said Miller.

Following a 15-month struggle, Hines succumbed to the disease — leaving behind her sons, 10 and 15, at the time.

“We needed that desperately,” Miller continued. “I know what it’s like to watch somebody that you love die from a disease that had they been able to have health care [coverage], they could still be here. Nobody should ever have to go through that. Her sons should not have to suffer without their mother.”
