A 49-year-old South Carolina conservative who refused to sign up for Obamacare is now going broke and blind, and of course, he blames Obama. Obamacare was created for people in Luis Lang’s position. Raw Story reports: Luis Lang learned in late February that he had suffered a series of mini-strokes that left him with bleeding in…

    The President didn’t make you stupid. You did that all by yourself.

    He had diabetes, he would never have received insurance on the private market prior to the ACA.

    • frambley1 May 13th, 2015 at 12:17 am

      Agreed! Also too, Obamacare is set up to rely more heavily on preventive care so that situations like his are avoided in the first place.

    Do they come any dumber? I’m just trying to decide if we’ve bottomed out in Merica.

    • arc99 May 12th, 2015 at 1:30 pm

      I suspect that there is a dumber group.

      That would be the people who after reading this story, are more determined than ever to vote for a Presidential candidate who unequivocally pledges repeal of the ACA.

        Before the awful mid terms, there was a republican diabetic woman in KY who was joyous because she FINALLY had health care for the first time in her life.

        When asked if she was still going to vote for McConnell, who wanted to remove her aid, she said yes and that if it meant she would lose her health care, it was no big deal.

        How do you deal with this level of ignorance?

      • Mike Watkins May 15th, 2015 at 4:51 pm

        Sad but true

    • whatthe46 May 12th, 2015 at 1:32 pm

      he’s would rather to cut off his nose to spite his face.

  4. Mike Watkins May 12th, 2015 at 1:33 pm

    Because of politicts he will be blind……….what is wrong with people

    • whatthe46 May 12th, 2015 at 1:47 pm

      it’s because it’s a black man’s plan. his ignorance and hatred is why he’s going blind. his choice. the damn fool.

      • allison1050 May 12th, 2015 at 1:50 pm

        In a nut shell.

  5. oldfart May 12th, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    You got what you voted for. Blame your state and yourself for your plight.
    Your state turned down the help you need.

  6. allison1050 May 12th, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    I really should be sorry to say this but I smiled while reading about this President Obama hating fool. It was the President’s fault regarding the creation of ACA and it’s the President’s fault that he and his equally stupid ass wife blame him for their not signing up! What can you say? Nothing so I smiled.

    • ShelleysLeg May 12th, 2015 at 2:00 pm

      Don’t forget it’s ALSO Obama’s fault that this man has diabetes and that he can’t get help due to the “it’s NOT fair” act his wife cites.

      • allison1050 May 12th, 2015 at 2:08 pm

        Thanks so much for the reminder Shelley, how the heck could I have forgotten the diabetes angle?

  7. Guy Lauten May 12th, 2015 at 2:06 pm

    “Principles override everything else!”, right Mr. Conservative?
    You needed health insurance to be safe from the burden of an unexpected illness.
    You chose not to get it to “stick to your principles”, right?
    Well guess what, you gambled and you lost. Nobody made you throw the dice. Instead of getting insurance under the ACA, you picked up the dice, rolled them, and came up craps.
    Too bad; so sad. Wah. Put on your big-boy pants and blame the only person involved in making the decisions that had to be made to get to this place: YOU.

    Wow… have you guys read the comments on the GoFundMe page?
    I don’t think I saw a single comment that didn’t at least shake a finger at him.
    (Some were much more explicit in their disdain for him.)

    • Guy Lauten May 12th, 2015 at 2:12 pm

      wow indeed. I wonder what Reince Priebus would have to say about this story…

      • Kick Frenzy May 12th, 2015 at 3:14 pm

        “Well, we can easily see how the failed laws of ObamaCare have hurt this man and how it is obviously set up to prevent people from attaining healthcare when they need it most. We’ll keep trying to repeal this travesty so that the American people can return to a time when they had a freedom in the type of coverage they have. We can no longer stand for a law that raises medical payments over 600%!”
        – Rnc Priebus

        • Dwendt44 May 12th, 2015 at 7:21 pm

          “course, If the ACA had been repealed, he’d still be up a creek without a paddle.

          • whatthe46 May 12th, 2015 at 8:47 pm

            where do i find him on the gofundme page. i would love to read the comments.

      I went there, ouch !

      I’m so proud of humanity sometimes – telling truth like that.

      wow, just wow!

    He’s raised less than $2,000 in a 24 day period. It seems that the standard GOP/TP meme to appeal to the church and others for healthcare assistance isn’t working out too well for Lang.

    Maybe he should sell his bootstraps to help pay his medical costs./s/

  11. Richard Bottoms May 12th, 2015 at 7:24 pm

    Actually my note was for his wife who is probably keeping silent about how his political pig headed hate of Obama has come close to destroying them. He will probably get his operation thanks to liberals who think no one should go blind for being dumb.

    The republican party is the party of:
    1) Billionaires
    2) Ignorant fools who vote against their own interest based on a failed ideology.
    Check your bank statement to find out which one you are.

    • atunionbob May 13th, 2015 at 3:21 pm

      Many your soooo right.

  13. Gadea May 13th, 2015 at 1:17 am

    Luis Lang has only himself to blame.

  14. crc3 May 13th, 2015 at 10:56 am

    This is the end result of ignorance. He gets what he deserves….

    • MerryMarjie May 13th, 2015 at 5:53 pm

      It’s not so much ignorance as being stubborn. He admits he knew the act required him to sign up but he’s been brainwashed by the conservatives to think that the Affordable Care Act is Obama’s Evil Game. He KNEW about it but failed to act because he and a whole mass of non-thinkers decided they wouldn’t go along with whatever Obama enacted. He may not deserve blindness but he is paying dearly for his “Anything-Obama-Related-Is-Bad” attitude.

      • glennst May 13th, 2015 at 7:56 pm

        His obstinacy made his bed. Too bad he has to lie in it now. This is the kind of ignorance neo-con impetuousness creates. Let other jerks like him take heed for the future.

  15. atunionbob May 13th, 2015 at 3:20 pm

    Similar happened to my Brother in law. He would not sign up for ACA. Had appendicitis. Now he has $35K in hospital bills, But he still says ACA will destroy America, while he asks me for money, yet wonders why I say NO!
