    Cancer Patient and ObamaCare Critic Says He's Being Audited by IRS

    A cancer patient, who publicly discussed the cancellation of his insurance under ObamaCare, now says he has been informed by the Internal Revenue Service that he is going to be audited.

    Bill Elliot appeared on Fox News on November 7th to discuss the cancellation of his insurance. He claims he was told that his cancer was considered “beyond the catastrophic previous condition” and his plan was being canceled because of ObamaCare regulations.

    Elliot, who has Stage 4 cancer, informed viewers he wasn’t going to pay the $1,500 a month for the new plan being offered, preferring not to burden his family and to “let nature take it’s course.”

    After his story attracted media attention, Elliot says his insurance company decided to let him keep his coverage:

    His insurance company was not required to cancel his policy. They chose to do so because his policy was costing them money. They had to cancel it now, because next year they wouldn't be allowed to just dump him like this.

    his is insurance company tried to **** him over, and when it got publicity they backtracked and tried to blame the government.

    Proof of this is right in the story: the insurance company "decided" to let him keep his policy after the media attention. If regulation really had forced them to drop his plan, there wouldn't be a decision to make.

    I didn't bring it up, the article did. Clearly they wanted you mad about obamacare in general. They spent twice as much space discussing his insurance woes as they did the IRS issue.

    As far as the audit goes, I would say "post hoc ergo propter hoc."

    I was pissed about Obamacare way before this story. He is the only President we have ever had that would value 15% over 85%

    and, what, you think that means right wing media will just stop talking about their dislike for the law?

    Yes, affordable healthcare is going to kill the American working class.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    More like simple WH intimidation. Bark negatively on TV about Obamacare, welcome to IRS audit-ville.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
