Karma can be a terrible, terrible bitch sometimes.
Former Arizona county sheriff Richard Mack, a fierce opponent of Obamacare and a leader in the "constitutional sheriff" movement, is struggling to pay his medical bills after he and his wife each faced serious illnesses. The former sheriff and his wife do not have health insurance and started a GoFundMe campaign to solicit donations from family and friends to cover the costs of their medical care.
"Because they are self-employed, they have no medical insurance and are in desperate need of our assistance," reads a note on Mack's personal website.
Mack, the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, suffered a heart attack in January and is in recovery. His wife fell ill late last year. Mack is on the board of Oath Keepers, a right-wing fringe group made up of police and military veterans, and is known forsupporting Cliven Bundy in his standoff against the federal government. He is also an ardent opponent of Obamacare.
"The States do not have to take or support or pay for Obamacare or anything else from Washington DC. The States are not subject to federal direction," he wrote on his website, outlining how state governments can block President Obama.
So now, you're supposed to give money to the Macks because they're exactly the kind of people Obamacare was supposed to help. Instead of signing up for Affordable Care Act exchange plans in Arizona, they refused to get health insurance, and literally expect the rest of us to pay.
The irony would be rich except of course the Macks are trying to advocate for taking affordable ACA health insurance coverage from millions of Americans. Do you think the Macks would donate one penny to someone who didn't sign up for health insurance and expected the rest of the country to pay for it instead?
Instead of doing the responsible thing, the Macks are depending on charity. But guess what? Now the Macks, even though they now have pre-existing conditions, can't be turned down for insurance should they buy it in the future. And they are wanting to take that away from themselves rather than admit a black President ever did anything good for America.
This is how much they will hate President Obama. They will hate him until they die.
