Very telling that you “sigh” not in response to this woman’s story of enduring brutal violence, but in defense of the GOP house abomination.

Yes, it is indeed telling. Had you asked, it would you that this was the third time in as many days that I had to explain to an individual who had been terrified by left-leaning fake news outlets regarding this issue that there was little, if anything, to worry about.

But, that’s not what you THOUGHT “sighs” was telling you, did you? You jumped to an entire different — and critical — and incorrect — conclusion.

You were wrong.

I dislike fake news. Perhaps you don’t mind it if it advances a preferred narrative. I wish with all my heart that she never had to suffer such, but emotion is not a justification for a dishonest accounting.

You have absolutely no idea how this process would play out (no one does), especially under a Trump HHS.

Rubbish. Although the HHS does have latitude, it only has some. The worst case scenario (that she lives in a state that’s granted a waiver, AND she allows her coverage to drop, THEREFORE she’ll have to pay a 30% penalty for the first year) is hardwired.

This woman has legit fears, and even if she didn’t, at least PRETEND to show a little human compassion before lecturing her.

The idea that there are “legit fears” is refuted above. I suggest you turn your guns on the fake liberal news outlets who have been screaming — without any honesty whatsoever — that the GOP had ended protections for pre-existing conditions, and have scared people in these situations out of their minds. Needlessly.

If you are truly concerned about the woman’s feelings — which I doubt — criticize the news sources that have her scared to death; not the person (moi’!) who is telling her she has nothing to worry about, just because I didn’t wrap it up in enough flowery language for you.
