Another Glitch: Seven-Year-Old With Cancer Loses Coverage

The liberal media specializes in human interest stories that yank on our heartstrings. Sure capitalism has created more wealth and lifted more people out of poverty than any coercion-based economic system, but look at this poor single mother on welfare who can’t afford a second wide-screen TV for the guestroom, et cetera, ad nauseam. Journalists ought to switch sides; it would make this technique a lot easier. For example:

Little Hunter Alford needs chemotherapy to treat the rare and deadly cancer he was born with but has lost his health insurance under an administrative blunder seemingly caused by Obamacare.

While the president’s signature policy promised that no one with a pre-existing condition would not be covered, the Affordable Care Act has seemingly caused the seven-year-old Gainesville, Texas, boy to face an agonizing wait for treatment as his parents battle to get him back on his insurance plan.

‘Why would you cancel a kid?’ asked his mother Krista Alford. ‘I really want to send Obama and all of them pictures of my son. He has scars all over his head. He doesn’t want to leave the house because he’s afraid people are going to make fun of him because he’s bald.’

At least he’s still alive — for now.

While mom Krista and dad Ron go out their minds with worry, Hunter – who was born with an extremely rare form of cancer called Plexiform Hishocyne Neoplasm – is battling the disease which has now spread to his brain.

But after seven years of fighting his illness, Hunter’s insurance has been canceled and he is due his next round of chemo, which costs $50,000 and right now, Krista says he is unlikely to get it.

The Alford’s are battling with children’s medicaid, or CHIP – which insures Hunter and despite the family receiving a new, renewed insurance card, they were informed that their agency had dropped them.

‘I called them and they said we were dropped October 31st,’ Krista said to News 12.

Happy Halloween!

She was told that her son’s information was lost when administrative changes were made under the Affordable Care Act.

‘The lady’s like, the only way we can expedite is if your son was pregnant and in labor, or if he was an illegal,’ Krista said.

Hunter being from a red state won’t help him much in desperate petitions to bureauweenies. Neither will his being white.

But hey, you can’t fundamentally transform a healthcare system without a few glitches.

    Since Hunter is a little too young to have the IRS audit him, look for the Dept of Education to jack around with his school records.

    If those ^evul^ republican hackers would have refrained from hacking the messiahcare page then everyone could have a cadillac plan with free welfare checks as a bonus.

    What Krista and EVERYONE ELSE needs to realize is that dear Comrade Chairman Obama is a narcissistic sociopath. He doesn’t CARE about anything or anyone but himself. Sick children are a useful prop nothing more to a dirty Communist like the little dictator.

    I WILL NOT COMPLY,
    I WILL NOT obey their laws,
    I WILL NOT fund their agendas,
    I WILL NOT recognize their authority,
    I WILL NOT surrender.
