While Obama chills on the beach in Hawaii, his "signature legislation" is causing chaos all over the country. As predicted, computer glitches have left many uninsured, even though they did what they were told and signed up for coverage.
The MailOnline reports that hospital staff in Northern Virginia are turning away sick people because they can't determine if their insurance policies are in effect:
"They had no idea if my insurance was active or not!' a coughing Maria Galvez told MailOnline outside the Inova Healthplex facility in the town of Springfield.
She was leaving the building without getting a needed chest x-ray. 'The people in there told me that since I didn't have an insurance card, I would be billed for the whole cost of the x-ray,' Galvez said, her young daughter in tow. 'It's not fair – you know, I signed up last week like I was supposed to.'
The x-ray's cost, she was told, would likely be more than $500.
Chicago resident Sheri Zajcew almost missed out on her scheduled surgery after her doctor's office spent over two hours on hold trying to get an answer about her coverage:
“I’m not a happy camper,” said Nate Zajcew, the patient’s husband. The couple signed up for a Blue Cross Blue Shield bronze plan through the federal HealthCare.gov site on Dec. 16. “I understand it’s just a matter of paperwork and yesterday was a holiday. I can be an SOB, too, at times, but since they’re going on with the procedure, it’s OK.”
Getting a baby covered under Obamacare is also turning out to be difficult. The HealthCare.gov website lacks a way for consumers to add their little bundle of joy to their insurance plan. Normally people just call their insurer or log on to their website. Not with ObamaCare.
Ron Paul says that this it is "conceivable' in that Obamacare will "totally self-destruct" in a New Years Day interview on Fox News via Breitbart:
