We know what Vox was trying to do here, they were BEGGING for people to share stories like this one from “Kate” about how the ACA has saved their lives and now that the evil Republicans are TAKING IT AWAY people are going to DIE!
Yes, we mock with caps.
So they pushed this silliness on Twitter … of all places:

We lost our insurance and I became a Republican as a result. https://t.co/Htr4jyn3ve

Sorry Vox, truth hurts.
Likely NOT what they were looking for.
But wait, there’s more!
@voxdotcom the hospital I work for is freezing raises because insufficient reimbursement for services rendered. The ACA needs to go.

@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 it made me have to pay a penalty because I lost my job and didn't buy health insurance

@voxdotcom I have given several thousands of dollars to a company and a service that I have never used.

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

@voxdotcom Obamacare has made it impossible to expand my small business. Until it's gone, I will not be hiring.

Hmm … this didn’t seem to work out like Vox thought it would. Honestly we didn’t even have to search very hard to find pissed off people on the thread, it’s the majority of the responses they received.
And none of us who have brains in our heads are the least bit surprised, which leaves Vox out.

Yeah, that’s what we thought.
