There was a time not too long ago when feminists and liberals within the Democratic Party condemned men for telling women how to handle their healthcare choices. In fact, President Obama got re-elected thanks to the argument, "Don't let Republicans let the government get between you and your doctor."
With the Obamacare rollout continuing to fail and as millions of women start to lose their health insurance plans, times have changed and it's now acceptable for Democratic men to lecture women about exactly how they should handle their healthcare needs. Last Friday night on Hannity, 29-year-old Natalie Willis told her personal story about losing a health insurance plan in the individual market place that she loved, despite President Obama promising she could keep it. Thanks to Obamacare, Willis will now pay more money for the same amount of coverage under a different plan.
"This is what I have to say: If I wanted a plan that covered more, I would have gotten a plan that covered more," Willis said. "I love the insurer I had, I would be heart broken to leave them. People don't love their insurers, I love my insurance and I love my doctors."
The patronizing response to her story from Democratic strategist Rick Ungar is telling. Ungar argues Willis simply didn't know what was in her plan and implied she hadn't done the proper research to realize she had a subpar insurance in the first place. Further, he argued healthcare plans on the Obamacare exchanges would provide better coverage at a better price, which isn't true.
"I would like to sit down with Natalie and get on the exchange," Unger said. "You know what else Natalie didn't mention? You can buy a policy off the exchange, have you checked that out?"
"You don't know," Unger continued. "Let me make the point. If you go to buy a car and you don't pick up the hood, right? You buy the car and then you get in the car and it doesn't start. You know why? There was no engine under the hood and you didn't know it."
The entire video clip is worth your time. Jedidiah Bila summed it up best, "It doesn't matter if you like her plan or if I like her plan or if President Obama likes her plan. What matters is that she liked her plan and she was promised she could keep her plan and it was taken away and now her costs are rising and she's facing the consequences for a promise unkept."
