Four years ago, San Francisco resident Melissa Klein was an ardent supporter of President Obama and Obamacare. Not anymore. In an open letter to Obama, she said she has changed her mind:
[A]s of today I’ve stopped making excuses for you and this system. It’s time to get your shit together. If I knew then, what I know now, I would have foregone insurance and taken the tax penalty. In fact, I’d rather be dead and broke than have to participate in Covered California’s health care exchange.
Basically, Covered California screwed up her 1095A form and then insisted she had never enrolled, despite the fact that she has invoices from Covered California documenting her premium payments.
Kaiser, by the way, is a private health plan.
It saddens me to say this, but I no longer believe that the government should mandate health care. It’s not because I’ve abandoned the basic principles behind health care reform. Quite the contrary. But a great idea, is just an idea, if you can’t execute. And the government has proven time and time again, it can’t execute.
Well, elections have consequences.
