This Is Why Obamacare Needed to Be Defunded

We've cried out to those who represent us in Washington and they've essentially given we the people the middle finger. 

Sorry, but when millions of Americans are suffering under Obamacare and begging Republicans to stop it.....and Republicans ignore the pleas for help, it IS essentially giving us the middle finger. We gave them the largest Republican majority in the House in over 80 years and delivered the Senate to Republicans. What have they done!? NOTHING except lie about their intentions to fight Obamacare. They were never going to try to stop the law. 

We had the same health care plan for a decade until Onamacare made it unaffordable. The company offered new plans. This screen shot shows the cost of a blood product my son infuses weekly. He did IVIG in the hospital once a month from 2000 through 2005.  In 2005 we switched to SCIG at home. This medication had a $16 copay from 2005 until the year after the law passed. Then the copay doubled. Still affordable, right? 

Last year we had to figure out how to pay over $4000 the first refill and over $1500 the second refill.  For the first time in 19 years with kids who have chronic healt issues, we had to apply for a drug company copay assistance program. This year, the program changed. No doubt due to the number of people who know have unaffordable copays due to Obamacare. 

We paid close to $500 and copay assistance paid $500, leaving us a balance of $3499.75.  We have to refill this again in a week or so and it will cost $1199.31 plus the balance due from the last fill. 

The people in DC exempted themselves from the law and they are out of touch millionaires who have no concept of what the average American family deals with day to day. 

This is one reason why we've been fighting to defund and repeal Obamacare. We are only one of millions of American families who are being harmed by the law. 

With the exception of a very few in DC, the political class doesn't care that the blood product my son infuses weekly is now unaffordable. Virginia Foxx is in the district lying and telling people she's actually fought to stop Obamcare. It's pathetic.

8000th Door!

One day, I'll have to write a book about this. I have such an amazing time going door to door. I know liberals don't understand my sense of humor or laughter in the face of unkind folks but, well, so what!?  These stories are real life on the trail.

Yesterday, I went to a door and it ended up being REALLY funny! I knocked on the door. A man answered, looked at me and said, "You're not welcome here,' as he started to slam the door. I just looked on in disbelief and said, "Okay."  All of a sudden, I see a hand catch the swinging door and his head pops out and he said, "I am so sorry! I thought you were someone else!"

We laughed and talked for a bit. He was wearing a shirt that said, "Obamacare: bend over and take it." So you can see why we would hit it off. Before I left, he laughed and said, "You're not welcome here, I am so sorry!" Laughing at his original mistake for confusing me with someone else. Oh my goodness, what a funny situation that was.

Today, I knocked on my 8000th door! By the day's end, I had a total of 8,071 doors knocked.  On to 9,000! My goal is in sight! I am hoping to make 10,000 doors before early voting begins on March 3.

8,071 doors and I've still only met 7 folks who support my opponent. Sunday, more than half of the people at the 92 doors I visited were home. Yesterday, I made it to 174 doors, maybe about 30% were home- I find that most days 30-40% of the people are home. So, only meeting 7 folks so far who will tell me they support FOXX is a good sign, in my opinion.

There are quite a few who don't say either way, but the majority of the folks I am meeting are PISSED off. I say pissed because they are beyond angry.

We the people will make our voices heard in DC.

Town Halls

I've been blessed 1) by being endorsed by Greg Brannon and 2) being asked to speak at his town halls in the  5th district.

As you may have noticed, I'm not doing a stellar job of blogging about my days on the trail! Here are a few pictures from the town halls I've spoken at recently. 

I've got a good excuse for not blogging, I'm out door knocking. I'm closing in on 8000 total!
