Heritage’s news site, The Daily Signal, shared a story Marjorie Weer, a mother who has been battling against Obamacare regulations so that her son, who has spina bifida, could receive treatment.
This story caught the eye of Vice President Mike Pence and inspired him and his team to bring Obamacare victims to Washington, D.C. so they could share their stories. Marjorie Weer was one of the mothers invited to speak.
Marjorie fought for six months so her 3-year-old son Monty could receive the treatment he needed. In his case, this was as simple as receiving care from a hospital out-of-state.
Marjorie’s efforts in fighting against the disastrous terms of Obamacare have truly been heroic.
As this report by the Daily Signal states:
During Monty’s short life, the family has had three health insurance plans—under two different companies—largely because of problems caused by Obamacare, Weer says. Those plans offered the Weers few options for insurers in South Carolina and restricted coverage networks outside that state.
And as Marjorie added at the Vice President’s meeting in D.C.:
I’ve jumped through hoops every day for three years. So thankfully they did approve the care, after a long time on the phone, for [Monty] to go to the doctor he wanted to. But he is 3. I have a 17-month-old daughter. I don’t want to be on the phone for hours. I want to pick up Play-Doh off the floor. I want to be a mom to my kids.
As Vice President Pence stated in the meeting, “This is the real story of Obamacare in America.”
