Sobbing woman thanks Obama for health care law
Politico ^ | 5 July 2012 | Byron Tau & R Epstein

Posted on 07/05/2012 3:59:56 PM PDT by smokingfrog

SANDUSKY, Ohio -- An emotional Ohio voter personally thanked President Obama for passing a health care overhaul, relating the story of her late sister's battle with cancer.

After Obama's speech in Sandusky, he encountered a sobbing Stephanie Miller, who later told reporters about her encounter with Obama.

"I thanked him for the getting the Affordable Health Act passed," Miller said, referring to the health care overhaul the Supreme Court upheld last week.

I suspect a quick check of her ID will prove that she is yet another fake. The Democrats are really big on bringing in fakes who claim this and that, yet later turn out to be some party worker from Podunk, who is cynically acting.

I think during the Obamacare debate, they even brought out fake doctors and nurses, who of course were never prosecuted even when unmasked.

google News search for

"Stephanie Miller" obama

in the past 24 hours got a tiny number of hits. Politico, Huffington Post, Progressive something or other, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

I thought every "news"paper and MSM "news" program would be shouting 24/7 about this by now.

It sounds as though Stephanie Miller is one of those freeloading “freeriders” Pelosi was ranting about. Surely she is going to need a “subsidy” from the TEA Party members to pay for her “affordable” (Free) healthcare so she won’t have to pay her messiah’s tax/penalty. She’s NOT an American and can kiss my red, white and blue TEA Party ***!!!

Miller said her sister was uninsured when she was diagnosed with colon cancer. Hines, a single mother working to support two young sons, applied for Medicaid but was told she did not meet the program’s financial requirements. Hines soon began a new job where she was given employer-sponsored health care coverage, but as a new employee she needed to be present in the workplace, which ultimately interfered with her cancer treatment.

Soon to start a job as a corrections officer at a state prison in Ohio, Miller suddenly found herself in the national press, after a White House pool reporter spotted and wrote about her encounter with the president. The Huffington Post contacted Miller who shared her full story.

According to Miller, the Affordable Care Act could have saved her sister’s life. A working mother of three, Miller told HuffPost neither she nor her two younger daughters, ages 22 and 20, have health insurance. Her new employer will not provide coverage until she completes a one-year probationary period. Meanwhile, Miller said her medical bills are “racking up.”

Miller now eagerly awaits the day when her insurance will kick in so that her daughters can stay on her health care plan until the age of 26, thanks to a provision under the president’s health care law and last week’s Supreme Court ruling.

Total setup!

Obama was at an ice cream social and just happened to run into “OBAMASBESTFAN” aka Stephanie Miller!

You don’t get that close to the President without turning over your life history beforehand!

I went to a graduation recently where FORMER (thank God) Clinton spoke and everyone who was allowed in was given close to an annul exam! And if you didn’t have an invitation and your ID you weren’t allowed in no matter how many kids you had graduating or the color of your skin! (a few tried to play the race card because they forgot their invitation- rules don’t apply to some people they think)

So this b *tch thinks the rest of us should pay for her and her daughters healthcare!

A procedure so simple as a colonoscopy can detect colon cancer early and treat it with great success.

Wife and I just had our scheduled colonoscopys and were clear. But 10 years ago after one, they removed precancerous polyps that would have put me under in short order. .

While you are at it forward this the Drudge too!

“Hines, a single mother working to support two young sons, applied for Medicaid but was told she did not meet the program’s financial requirements. Hines soon began a new job where she was given employer-sponsored health care coverage.”

Her obituary states this...

“she was born in Sandusky, May 27, 1971, and was a 1989 graduate of Sandusky High School. She was employed by Pizza House West for 12 years”

“She is survived by her children, Austin Hines and Trentton Yanushewski, both of Monroeville; her companion, Brian Yanushewski”

Miller said her sister passed away from colon cancer four years ago — partly because she could not purchase health insurance.
"Even after she was diagnosed with cancer, she was told her income was too high for Medicaid," Miller said.

A problem that could be solved without creating a behemoth of a bureaucracy, and putting everyone's health care at the mercy of the Federal govt.

“Her daughter, Ariel, & future daughter-in-law, Meghan.”

So is Ariel a lesbian or does she have a son who is engaged to Meghan ?

And, yes, where is/are the father(s) responsible for these kids ?

There’s a female comic strip character who shows up in the newspaper occasionally who came to mind when I saw that photo.......I think the strip is “The Wizard of Id” and the character is FAT BROAD.
