A woman diagnosed with breast cancer, whose life-saving surgery has been postponed after she lost her doctors under ObamaCare, made a heartfelt plea Sunday to President Obama to amend the Affordable Care Act.
She lost her insurance due to Obamacare, and now with her new Obamacare plan, she can't get care. She said she's having trouble finding doctors and hospitals in her new plan, and it's causing her a delay in her treatments and surgery.

Obamacare has created more uninsured patients than before, and the ones who have coverage are having trouble getting care. Obama has made the system worse and wasted tons of tax payer dollars. I feel sorry for people like the woman in this story.

There are stories good and bad. My best friend and her daughters have multiple health issues. No insurance would cover them because they were high risk. They couldn't afford the meds they needed and they really suffered. The ACA has been a life saver for them

But right wing posters here tell me that uninsured sick people can just go to emergency.

My former Employer changed medical insurance carriers 3 times while I was employed there. I never had a serious medical condition, but if I had, I would have had to have changed to doctors in the network.

This was long before Obamacare. What is different now?

Natalie I think it's understood that there is many benefits for people that didn't have insurance especially those with pre-existing conditions, the trouble is those benefits are at the expense of everyone else. This law needed to address healthcare costs across the board whether you had no insurance or had a cadillac plan. It's not doing that and it appears it's doing quite the opposite.

This thing is shaping up to be a disaster and at this point in time if you can't admit there is some major issues with this law then you have to be blind. If there isn't some major turn around over the next few months it's going to get a lot, lot worse.

I'm not a proponent of the ACA but you got this one right.
It has nothing to do with 'Obamacare'

The lights are coming on. It's about time. Some of us knew this was coming.

Have you written your Congressman (or Congresswoman)? Send a fax and tell them what you think about Obamacare, and this case.

Really? How have they managed to get care under Obamacare when so many can't even get the Web site to work, and those that have "signed up" have no idea if they are insured yet. Even the government has no idea how many people (if any) have actually paid.

Your claim doesn't pass the "smell test."

I think you are misrepresenting what has been said about ER visits. This person has already been diagnosed, and apparently was scheduled for treatment. This isn't an "emergency," where a trip to the ER could take care of the matter. In other words, she didn't just break a leg, or have some other emergency.
