    Man tells Paul Ryan, "I'd be dead without the ACA."

    Man who says he 'would be dead' without Obamacare confronts Paul Ryan on the law's repeal

    "Just like you, I was opposed to the Affordable Care Act," Jeans told Ryan. "When it was passed, I told my wife we would close our business before I complied with this law."
    But then he said the law saved his life. Soon after it passed, he said, he learned he had cancer and was given six weeks to live. He said he was able to get insurance, which allowed him to receive treatment, through the Affordable Care Act.
    and Congress is going full steam ahead on a repeal, with no replacement in sight.

    No surprise there. They have no concern for the people they actually serve- only themselves and other wealthy people.

    I call BS on this story.

    But Progs will swallow anything that fits their memes.

    He was then diagnosed with a “very curable type of cancer” at 49 and told he had six weeks to live.
    He said he was denied treatment because he didn’t have insurance, even though he offered to pay three times the cost.
    There's a reason the United States had a far higher five-year cancer survival rate than socialized medicine countries prior to Obamacare.

    And why did he not have insurance? If you can wait until you get sick (pre-existing condition) to buy insurance you are in effect a free loader on all those who pay year after year for their health insurance.

    Can I wait until I have an auto accident then buy insurance after the fact? Or home owners insurance? Heck, why can't family members buy life insurance after a loved one dies?

    And he claims that he offered to pay 3 times the amount and was refused. Yeah, I call BS.

    It's Fake News didn't the Wikileak bust of the DNC and how the media protected Clinton show you anything? No source a liberal uses if it's from the mainstream media is valid. Might as well use Buzzfeed 24/7

    Yeah, I have a thread about this. This guy is so typical of Republicans. They only can support something when it affects them. THey have no empathy for others. FRankly I think the guy is a hypocrite (like most republicans) being so against something but now that he needs it he is for it. They are the epitome of "screw everybody else, I got mine"

    That should be the party mantra, No empathy required. Seriously, do republicans stand for anything noble and good?
