Obamacare - King v. Burwell Plaintiffs

If you're interested in the upcoming Supreme Court case against the Affordable Care Act, or if you just want to be REALLY DEPRESSED AND APPALLED, this article is a must read.

Meet the Unusual Plaintiffs Behind the Supreme Court Case that Could Kill Obamacare
On March 4, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell, a lawsuit designed by conservative advocates to destroy Obamacare. If the plaintiffs prevail, about 8 million people could lose their health insurance. Premiums are likely to skyrocket by 35 percent or more, threatening coverage for millions of others. Health policy experts have estimated that nearly 10,000 people a year could die prematurely if they lose their coverage. Obamacare itself could collapse.
Make no mistake, the asshats bringing this case are doing so out of animosity towards the President, and in pursuing this hateful agenda, millions of people will lose their health insurance and thousands will die for lack of health care. Yes, die. Because affordable healthcare saves lives. Incidentally, this will also explode the deficit. Nice going Republicans!

This paragraph is about one of the four plaintiffs in the case.
When I asked her if she realized that her lawsuit could potentially wipe out health coverage for millions, she looked befuddled. "I don't want things to be more difficult for people," she said. "I don't like the idea of throwing people off their health insurance." 
Well guess what, dumbass. You're about to do just that. Nice going. I have no sympathy for people so stupid that they will hurt millions of Americans, intentionally or not. Even more incredible, this plaintiff is paying $1500 a month for health insurance because she refuses to choose an Obamacare policy. If she did, her premiums would drop to $148 a month. So not only is she unthinkingly hurting millions of Americans, she's also screwing herself over. Idiot.

Read the article and despair. There are just no words for this level of evil.
