Vox is the borderline-retarded gift that keeps on giving. Whether it’s their rip-roaringly hilarious take on guns or their creepy-ass writers getting flayed on live TV, you can always count on Vox-ers to deliver the giggles. Well, they’re at it again. They sent out a tweet looking for success stories from the giant, steaming turd of a policy that is Obamacare. Naturally, things didn’t turn out the way they expected.
Vox asked Twitter users on Wednesday for stories on how the Affordable Care Act affected their lives, appearing to expect positive responses about former President Obama’s chief legislative achievement.
What the liberal publication got instead was a flood of stories highlighting skyrocketing premium costs and health care insurance loss, among other things.
“The ACA essentially saved my life,” said a Vox reader in a quote posted to the publication’s Twitter timeline. Vox tweeted, “Tell us how the Affordable Care Act has impacted your life,” above that quote.
Twitter users responded with stories that had a more negative tone, Twitchy reported. Some respondents told stories of how Obamacare made their premiums “skyrocket.”
Others told stories of how Obamacare affected their jobs and businesses by making it more difficult to expand and hire employees.
Here are some of the aforementioned responses…
@voxdotcom my family premium went from $789 a month w/1k ded. to $1929 w/8k ded. In 3 years. We also lost several key doctors.

@voxdotcom I have given several thousands of dollars to a company and a service that I have never used.

@voxdotcom the hospital I work for is freezing raises because insufficient reimbursement for services rendered. The ACA needs to go.

While it’s always funny to see leftists inadvertently own themselves, we have mad feels for all the people out there who got royally screwed over by Barry’s purposefully awful idea. The regular folks got lied to, and they got the exact opposite of what they were promised. Not unlike expecting comedy at an Amy Schumer show. Sure they should’ve expected that from Democrats who wanted more votes. But the American people didn’t directly vote for Obamacare either. It was ramrodded down their throats, courtesy of the Democrats. They didn’t even take us to dinner first. Then the Supreme Court doubled down.
After all this, leftists are still scratching their heads bald wondering why they lost the last election. Keep scratching until you hit brain.
Can’t say we didn’t try to warn you…
