Barack Obama’s leisurely retirement was disrupted this week after the liberal rag Vox decided to ask Twitter users how his signature healthcare legislation has affected their lives. Big mistake. Obama and his cronies in the leftist media were in for a rude awakening once the responses began pouring in — and you don’t want to miss it.
“Millions of Americans, right now, aren’t really sure what will happen next for their health coverage,” asserted the left-wing publication. “Vox Senior Policy Reporter Sarah Kliff has been covering the Affordable Care Act since 2010, and she’ll be writing a lot about the fight over Obamacare in the coming months. She’s already started covering the Republican replacement plans in depth, and interviewing senators about what they want to do differently.”
Vox added, “But what happens in Washington is only part of the story. The rest of the story is outside the Beltway, and is about how the lives of those who rely on the Affordable Care Act will change based on what legislators ultimately decide.” Then, came their tweet that it’s safe to say didn’t go according to their plan.

Vox asked Twitter users on Wednesday for stories on how the Affordable Care Act affected their lives, appearing to expect positive responses about former President Obama’s chief legislative achievement.
What the liberal publication got instead was a flood of stories highlighting skyrocketing premium costs and health care insurance loss, among other things.
“The ACA essentially saved my life,” said a Vox reader in a quote posted to the publication’s Twitter timeline. Vox tweeted, “Tell us how the Affordable Care Act has impacted your life,” above that quote. [Source: The Washington Free Beacon]
Obamacare may have helped this one woman Vox chose to highlight, but it negatively affected many others, who weren’t shy about sharing their respective stories.
Some respondents told of how Obamacare made their premiums and deductibles “skyrocket,” while depriving them of their trusted physicians, completely disproving the “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” line.
@voxdotcom my family premium went from $789 a month w/1k ded. to $1929 w/8k ded. In 3 years. We also lost several key doctors.

@voxdotcom Easy. It made my premiums and deductibles skyrocket. Just like everyone else.

@voxdotcom family premium has increased 10-14% / year. Very UNaffordable for majority who are mandated to subsidize (persons & corporate)

Others revealed the ways Obamacare has negatively impacted their jobs and businesses by making it more difficult to expand and hire employees.
@voxdotcom Obamacare has made it impossible to expand my small business. Until it's gone, I will not be hiring.

@voxdotcom the hospital I work for is freezing raises because insufficient reimbursement for services rendered. The ACA needs to go.

Several even said Obamacare prompted them to switch party affiliation, certainly not the 44th president’s intention behind the legislation.
We lost our insurance and I became a Republican as a result. https://t.co/Htr4jyn3ve

Well, chalk this up to another massive liberal media fail! Better luck next time, Vox.
