This inspirational, disabled family lost its health coverage, and it’s Obamacare’s fault

Via Cousin John

The Daverts are just one of the thousands of American families who lost healthcare coverage after Obamacare forced their insurance company to cancel their plan.

But the Daverts aren’t like any other American family. Twin children Austin and Michaela have brittle bone disease, as does their mother, Melissa. Their father, Ken, has cerebral palsy. Though their handicaps–and medical expenses–are significant, life together is not just manageable, but happy, in their Bay City, Michigan home.

Things have become much more difficult, however, since recently implemented provisions of the Affordable Care Act cause their insurer to drop the children from their health plan. And even after spending hours and hours navigating the labrynthine and demanding answers from confused call center bureaucrats, Melissa Davert’s children remain uninsured, despite their constant medical needs.

And she knows exactly who is to blame.

“We did not put ourselves in this situation,” she told The Daily Caller. “The government put us in this situation.”


  1. Many more to follow this travesty. This crime against all Americans.

    1. The more the better is needed, unfortunately, to sink Obamacare.
