If You Like It, You Can't Keep it: IWV Launches MyCancellation.com
Can't keep your health care plan? Received a cancellation letter?
We know that ObamaCare is causing this happen to people all across America — your family, your friends, your co-workers, your employees. Maybe even you.
Washington needs to see what is happening. That's why Independent Women's Voice launched a new Tumblr site -- MyCancellation.com -- and we are looking for submissions from the millions across the country who have received cancellation letters from their health insurance providers notifying them that their plan - that they liked - will be cancelled due to ObamaCare.
Take a picture of yourself with your cancellation letter and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (We'll take care of covering up all private information -- we aren't the government and don't want that out there!)
Help us show Washington the faces of those who were told they could keep their plan if they liked it, who really can't. All thanks to ObamaCare.
GIVING HEALTH CANCELLATIONS A HUMAN FACE
Higgins: “Millions affected deserve more than just to be part of a large number that is dismissed and forgotten.”
WASHINGTON DC — Over 3.5 million Americans are losing their health insurance polices, cancelled due to ObamaCare. These individuals and families have received notice from their health provider stating that their current plan is “terminated,” “ending,” “withdrawn,” “non-compliant” and that it “does not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.”
Washington needs to see what is happening and that is why Independent Women's Voice (IWV) has created MyCancellation.com - to give health insurance cancellations a human face. IWV CEO and President Heather R. Higgins said “The millions affected deserve more than just to be part of a large number that is dismissed and forgotten.”
The Tumblr site is asking anyone anyone who has received a cancellation message to submit it to email@example.com.
Higgins added, “Even better, because each of these letters came as costly, horrific surprises to real people, is if they ‘put a face on it’ - include themselves in the picture they submit.”
From the hundreds of submitted letters, many include information about their new plans or new premiums under ObamaCare, which in most cases are extremely more expensive.
So far, some politicians refuse to the see damage being done across the nation and some have made the same exact promises as President Obama (on October 18 Senator Bill Nelson reiterated Obama’s recurrent broken insurance promise in writing).
The claim that Obamacare would let Americans keep existing plans if they liked them is false and now President Obama is lying about his lies. It’s time to tell the truth. Let Washington see the faces of all the people who are paying the price.
SILENCING THE OPPOSITION
Our Twitter handle @MyCancellation, which now has over 8,000 followers, was suspended three times since its’ inception last Friday. We did not engage in spam behavior, we didn’t violate any of Twitters rules and we followed their suggested “best practices.” Could we have been knocked down by the White House Twitter amry? Someone must be worried.
Twitter’s response to the suspension appeal: It looks like a disproportionately large number of users, including ones you followed or @replied, have chosen to either block your account or report it as spam.
MyCancellation.com, a project of the Independent Women’s Voice, was created to highlight the real-life stories of people who are suffering because of ObamaCare.
