During the 2008 presidential campaign we heard Obama tell us of the difficult and expensive time his mother had with health care and ovarian cancer. Guess what? Little of that is true. Obama said she had a pre-existing condition and her insurance denied her claim. Well…no, not exactly. She had health care, they paid her claims, but refused to pay for her living expenses of several hundred dollars a month, under a separate disability policy. Did her successful attorney son give her a helping hand? I wonder. Dunham returned to the U.S. from Indonesia for treatment. She worked for the Ford Foundation under Peter Geithner, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s father. Scott Wright, the author of a new book has access to Ann Dunham’s (Obama) correspondence from that time. In the video below you’ll hear Obama, in what is the start of a litany of massive lies to the America people. Great video! Glenn rocks!
[OBAMA] “For my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in a hospital room arguing with insurance companies because they’re saying that this may be a preexisting condition and they don’t have to pay her treatment, there’s something fundamentally wrong about that.
Reportedly, Dunham was misdiagnosed in the family’s beloved Indonesia, little Barry’s home for many years, and came to the U.S. to be accurately diagnosed and then treated. When you’re told your appendix needs removing, and then they are removed…and eventually you decide to come to the U.S. for treatment, chances are your real problem, uterine and ovarian cancer, has raged-on. Hers had.
So she had to come to America for proper medical care. Of course she did.
“That is weird. According now to the records in January 1995, she left Indonesia to go to Honolulu where she was diagnosed with an advanced uterine and ovarian cancer. She began a regimen of surgery and chemotherapy. This is the time which womb says his mother battled the insurance companies to cover her illness. But Scott, an author of a new book who has access to Dunham’s correspondence from the time reveals that she unquestionably had health coverage. Ann’s compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance which covered most of the cost of her medical treatment,” Glenn read.
According to Wright, Dunham tried to be reimbursed for her living expenses. When the insurance company, Cigna, refused, she turned it over to her attorney son, Barack Obama. Cigna still refused.
“ Once she was back in Hawaii, the hospital billed her insurance company directly leaving Ann only to pay the deductible and any uncovered expenses, which she said claimed to be several hundred dollars a month. Scott Wright said Dunham, who wanted to be compensated for those costs as well as for her living expenses. She filed a separate claim under her employer’s disability insurance policy. It was that claim with the insurance company Cigna that was declined in August 1995 because as Cigna investigators said, her condition was known before she was covered by the policy. Dunham protested the decision and informed Cigna that she was turning the case over to my son, an attorney, Barack Obama. Cigna did not budge,” Glenn continued.
“September 1995 Dunham traveled to New York for an evaluation at renowned Memorial Sloan‑Kettering. She returned to Hawaii, began a new course of treatment. She died in November. A dozen years later her son turned ordeal into a campaign pitch for national healthcare. But the story Obama told Scott Wright was abbreviated. The abbreviation was to leave out the fact that she had health insurance and it paid for her treatment. Though he often suggested that she was denied health coverage because of a preexisting condition. It appears from her correspondence in her own writing that she was only denied disability coverage. That’s a different story altogether but one that nobody in the press seems to care.”
One wonders whether the biographess understood that adherents to Critical Theory and marxist claptrap in general are wedded to group identity and to the politics of class, race, gender…
