Meet the Powell’s: Two Real Life Victims of Obamacare

Well, we don’t have to tell you how controversial President Obama’s pride and joy, the Affordable Care Act, has been over the last few years.  Be it the promise of microchip implantation, website and implementation woes, or the President’s incorrect reassurances that people that already had and liked their insurance plans would be unaffected, there has always been something about Obamacare for people to be fired up about.  However, up until now, not many people could actually offer up a real, tangible story of how Obamacare left them high and dry.

Bobby Powell and his wife are ending that dry streak.  The video below tells their story and how the Affordable Care Act has literally condemned them both to an early grave.  They even go so far as to say that their story corroborates the famous and often ridiculed statements of Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin referring to Obamacare “death panels.”

Maybe the death panels aren’t like an American Idol judging panel deciding which grandma is worth keeping around, but this video does demonstrate that the result can in many cases be about the same.  We hope you’ll take a little time to hear Bobby Powell’s story, and we hope that we won’t be hearing too many more of these, although the Powell’s tribulations with Obamacare certainly don’t make that prospect very promising.
