kbronsito: Marriages destroyed by GOP's opposition to Obamacare: 1
Marriages destroyed by Legalizing Gay Marriage: 0


Without gay marriage, this gay divorce could not have happened!

ginandbacon: JerseyTim: ManateeGag: JerseyTim: ginandbacon: JerseyTim: ginandbacon: Subby, you're a farking idiot.

?

Is there something about my post that needs clarification?

I can't tell why you think subby is an idiot.

it's probably a standard reaction when the words "President Obama" and "literally destroy" appear in a headline.  usually indicates subby is a moron.

I assumed the headline is sardonic and not meant to be taken on face value. So, when someone replies that the subby is a farking idiot, I'm thinking that they DO think that Obama's zealous quest for power literally destroyed a marriage .

Do you think it's funny that this poor woman had to move into a homeless shelter and that she and her husband of 33 years had to separate and that tens of thousands of people are going to suffer and die because GOP legislators are such immoral assholes that they would willingly burden their fellow citizens and lose money just to spite the President?

I don't think it's funny. And I don't think it's sharp or edgy or "sardonic" to troll with a headline like this.

YVMV.

Exactly.  No more lucky ducky programs!

They need to suffer so they can learn to not be poors anymore.

I feel like, if you're going to call the submitter an idiot, you should clarify that you think he's an idiot because he either genuinely believes that "President Obama's zealous quest for power literally destroyed a marriage" and the headline is not tongue-in-cheek OR that you accept the sarcastic nature of the headline, but you find it inappropriate to joke about. It makes a difference.

I would agree with you except: Every headline should get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to potentially being tongue-in-cheek because that is how greenlights happen, and everything is appropriate to joke about here.

ginandbacon: Rising_Zan_Samurai_Gunman: What I do wonder in her case is why she can't qualify for Medicaid anyway under a disability exemption

In most states, Medicaid is tied to a disability claim--or at least was until states had the expansion option. So if she hadn't filed and gone through all her appeals she wouldn't have qualified. The insurance she qualifies for is a state insurance for poor adults. It's like Medicaid lite. Better than nothing I suppose.

/Ex used to work for social services in Maryland.
//Had some REALLY depressing stories.


You mean depressing because everyone that was sitting around crappy government offices applying for Medicaid was actually really rich and just gaming the system to get insurance coverage that many doctors won't take and that nearly requires personal humiliation as a condition precedent to coverage?

Or did you mean the other kind of depressing where people are so desperate that they will suffer almost any indignity to try to preserve any sort of health care for themselves and their children and/or parents? (I think no one realizes how many people struggle with the system for elderly and disabled parents).

Meh. If someone wants to think I genuinely believe my headline is the truth, I'm not going to be broken up over it. I know I support states expanding Medicaid. I know it's completely on the states now to either expand or reject the expansion. And if the latter is the case, apart from saying that this is not even close to the most inappropriate thing I've put in a greenlit headline, HeartBurnKid conveniently summed up my response already.

Yeah, it's a terrible situation. My grandma and grandpa ran into something similar when his Parkinson's got bad enough that grandma couldn't take care of him and he had to go into a VA long-term care facility. They didn't divorce, but they did tap almost all of their savings to pay for it . They went from a nest egg of well over a million dollars to their house being basically their only asset.

As for the funny thing, my uncle has long said that in matters of taste, there is no debate.

So true. As I mentioned in my post, my grandma had Hep C (*bad transfusion, not drug related; not that it should matter anyway...) but she had had bad swelling and water retention since the late 80s, was unable to work, and was getting progressively worse despite the medications. She didn't even start getting the medicine until we could get her covered by insurance and the welfare department fought us every single step of the way, as did the Social Security folks, who denied her twice until we were able to obtain counsel and finally get her the disability benefits. In the mean time, she just kept deteriorating because it took us about 2 years to finally get it all settled and all we could really do in the mean time was take her to the ER when things got too bad. My family has always been broke...it was such a difficult process and incredibly heartbreaking every step of the way because each and every one of us felt as though we were collectively being viewed as "not worth it" or worse yet, "unworthy" of life or care or just a basic right to life without pain.

How is it people can fight so hard for the "right to life" for a freaking zygote but those who are already living and walking on this planet aren't worth a damn thing unless they're tossing money into someone's pocket?

seapig: My grandparents had to do this as welk a few years ago for my grandmother to gain her Medicaid from the welfare department. At the time, my grandfather was still working and making $15 an hour doing FRP repairs on boats at a local (well-known) yacht club. Because he was anywhere between 30-40 hours a week, and their income was combined (despite the fact that she had been unable to work for at least 15 years due to lymphedema and raised ammonia levels in her bloos from Hep C) they were considered to be making too much money and there was absolutely no way my papa's income alone would have been able to cover her prescriptions, doctor visits, rent, bills, etc.

After 40+ years of marriage, they decided to split so that she could apply as a single person. They also claimed they were living apart using a separate address thanks to a friend who provided a cover address, but (thankfully) they were able to remain living together...in secret, of course.

That hurt my grandparents so badly to dissolve their marriage and the fact that they were unmarried when my grandma died still haunts my grandfather. I feel so sad and sorry for these folks and I hope very much that this exposure may bring some attention to this growing problem and perhaps lead to a happy resolution for them. Personally, I'm hoping that we'll have universal healthcare in my lifetime but given the current state of politics and shiat-flinging in this country, I'm not holding my breath. As someone who is 9 weeks away from delivering my first baby, I can only enviously read about the benefits of France's healthcare system :/


My former in-laws had to do this when the husband's dementia got so bad he needed 24 hr supervision. Thankfully I guess for him his mind was to far gone to understand that he was divorced, but it broke his wife's heart.

Of course it's his fault.

If he wasn't going around presidentin' while black and eating crackers like he owned the place, those nice, god-fearing Tennesseans wouldn't have had to turn down his lawless socialist communist money and could have expanded Medicaid coverage while keeping government out of Medicaid.

To be fair, if Obama hadn't gone whole-hog on signing into law a comprehensive health care bill that included Medicaid expansion, SCOTUS never would have heard NFIB v. Sebelius, they never would have ruled that states could accept or reject the expansion without risking current Medicaid funding, and Tennessee would never have to make a decision regarding the expansion.

I don't see why she had to move out.  Once they were divorced, she could have continued living in the same house as a roommate.  You don't combine household income with a roommate for tax purposes.

/situation still sucks, I just don't see why it had to suck this much


The court would probably consider that a fraud. Form and function are important. If she's dwelling in the same house as her husband their would be serious questions as to whether the divorce was real in the eyes of the law.

Absolutely disgusting. Republican state governments are willing to let millions of people go without healthcare coverage just to stick it to Obama. This is the result.

Once again I have to assume that GOP politicians and voters are incapable of feeling empathy. The only chance they will change their minds on something like this is if the worst happens to themselves or someone in their immediate family.
 
2014-07-07 05:04:50 PM  
A little over a month ago, Larry started writing a letter to Gov. Bill Haslam (R) every single day, imploring him to consider his wife's situation and agree to expand Medicaid.

"I want to sit down in a room with you. I want to be worth 15 or 20 minutes. That is it," Larry


Poor bastard doesn't realize that Greyson wasn't joking - his governor is hoping that they die quickly. That will take care of all of this.

There seems to be a lot of missing information here. TFA says they are ineligible because he took Social Security at 62, but even after the fact he can reverse that and wait until she turns 65.

So, based on the information in TFA, he sent his wife to a homeless shelter to get $1000 per month in SS benefits a few years early.

Maybe he lost his job and was too old to find another?
