    Pamela John of "ACA Success Stories" & Moms Rising blog on ACA Success Stories!

    in Politics Progressive

    It started with a woman anxiously awaiting the healthcare.gov site going live.  (As she said) It was like Christmas morning logging on to the healthcare.gov site for the first time.  Pamela Johns was able to sign up on the site, get health insurance through the exchange and saved more than $100 a month in health insurance premiums.  She took to Facebook to share the good news in a status update.  Many friends congratulated her and one friend suggested the idea of creating a page for success stories like hers.

    Pamela, along with said friend Bruce Bacon approached Rob Miller about his "ACA Signup Success Stories" page on Facebook.  They agreed to work together to promote his page and get the truth of the "Obamacare" success stories out there amidst the government shutdown and the nasty talk about the troubled launch of healthcare.gov.

    Within weeks, the site jumped from 12 likes to 700 likes to now over 10,000 likes on Facebook.

    Pamela John, one of the purveyors of the ACA Success Stories truth will be joining us on The Social Spitball Show to talk about some of those stories.  She will also share more about what she, Rob and Bruce are up to with so many others who have jumped in to make this page a success as well.


    With the sharing of truth, comes the healing of our nation...quite literally.

    Won't you call (646) 478-3349 and press 1 to share your ACA Success Story with Pamela, Barbara Dee, Bram Sarkowski and the listening audience?

    This is most certainly a needed conversation.  Let's get this most important conversation going...

    Lindsey Benage & National ACA/Medicaid Vigils; Pamela John & ACA Success Stories

    in Politics Progressive

    With a hurricane of negativity & false ACA horror stories flying from the right, the truth is out there.  The truth is negative (at the hands of Red State legislatures & Red State Governors), with denial of Medicaid Expansion money (already paid for by Red State taxpayers) costing lives.  The truth is also positive, with hundreds of thousands of citizens getting more comprehensive coverage, as well as lower monthly premiums and lower deductibles.


    Our first guest is Lindsey Benage, of Kansas, who has seen the negativity of Red State pushback, as manifested by ultra-conservative Gov. Sam Brownback and the Kansas legislature.  People are most certainly dying, as evidenced by Mayor O'Neal walking to DC to raise awareness that citizens of his town Belhaven, NC are dying without the services at Pungo Hospital.  Lindsey is passionate about speaking up for the lives of those that will certainly die without Medicaid or insurance.  That is why she is organizing, with the help of others (including you), a nationally coordinated series of vigils to acknowledge the hurt that comes without the help of Medicaid Expansion or good health insurance coverage. Please tune in just after 7pm Eastern to hear Lindsey's story and to get more details about the effort to raise awareness through these vigils.  She will have most of the first hour.


    Our second guest is already a friend of the show.  Pamela John has appeared once before (back in May), sharing many stories submitted by real folks who shared their ACA success stories.  Please tune in after 8pm Eastern to hear more about her story and, more importantly, the ACA Success Stories!

    With so many lives on the line, this will be an important show.  Don't miss it!  Let's get the conversation going...

    What would happen if the GOP repealed Obamacare?

    The consequences of repeal, health care officials and industry analysts say, go beyond the fact that 9 million people would suddenly lose their insurance or that anyone with a pre-existing condition would either lose insurance or pay much higher premiums.

    All consumers would take a huge financial hit, because health care costs would continue to rise, and insurers would probably recoup their losses by charging higher premiums.

    How will Obamcare be remembered in history poll?
