Leftist group MoveOn.org is circulating an email that shows the absolutely deplorable attitude they have towards those who have lost their health insurance due to Obamacare; h/t Weaselzippers:
Why are we so fixated on 4 million insured people who may lose their current and mostly sub-standard health insurance policies and ignoring the fact that 48 million people who have never had health insurance will finally be able to buy health insurance?
The 4 million insured have had the ability to purchase insurance all along. Now, due to circumstances beyond their control, including the greed of insurance companies, they could potentially lose their current policy. But they still have the option to get another plan.
The 48 million people that have never had coverage would not be able to get any health insurance coverage if it were not for the Affordable Care Act. End of story!
Tell your lawmakers to stop putting politics ahead of the needs of the majority—that is not the way a democracy is supposed to work.

Well Jim, the reason we are so fixated on this is because President Obama LIED, which is exactly what you are doing in this email! Obama said that we could keep our plans, period; that is why we are so fixated on it! Its not that they “may ” lose their health plan, its that they already HAVE lost it! And by the way, 4 million is a lot of people, and there are millions more expecting to have their plans canceled. Another thing; what makes you so sure all, or even most of these plans were substandard? Even if they were, they were undoubtedly better than Obamacare, I mean, if the Administration can’t even handle a simple website, what makes you think they can handle healthcare for millions of people?
As for your 48 million uninsured number, stop assuming that all or even most of them couldn’t buy insurance; many people who are young, like myself, don’t buy insurance because they don’t want it! And you know what? They should have the choice not to purchase healthcare if they so choose; its what we here in America like to call FREEDOM. And given that the administration has DELAYED enrollment until 2015 (assuming they figure out how to work the exchanges by then, but hey, it IS the government), what are those 4+ million people (and those who have yet to have their plan canceled) going to do? Remember this website is struggling to work for a couple thousand people; I shudder to think what would happen if 48 million tired.
The simple fact Jim is that you are callous, cold, and inconsiderate; and whats worse is that you are willing to ignore facts and lie to try to gain support. 4 million people matter Jim, especially when the facts don’t even match the rhetoric you are using about them. Obamacare is a failure; it is unpopular amongst Doctors, patients, and rational thinking people everywhere. If MoveOn.org had even one shred of decency, they would be trying to help come up with the solution to the problem, instead of minimizing and lying about it.
