The wife of a Democratic member of Congress went on a very personal rant about her healthcare on social media, and inadvertently provided evidence for critics of Obamacare.
Amanda Cunningham, the wife of Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-S.C.), complained about the limitations of her government-subsidized healthcare program, one associated with former President Obama's landmark legislation.
"I'm gonna have a little bit of a rant here on social media because I think this is important," she said on a video posted to her Instagram account.
"I've been going over my, this is a not-a-bill bill here from Blue Cross Blue Shield, and realizing that once again, all of my mental health therapy sessions are denied, in addition to all of our marriage counseling sessions," she explained.
"It's just mind-blowing to me that these basic well-known needs, that mental health is health care, are still being denied, that we're still fighting for these absolutely basic things, it's unbelievable to me," she continued.
She added that she was going to pressure her husband to push legislation to change healthcare laws to provide the coverage she was demanding.
"Let's go to the House floor, let's write a bill, I don't know what you do, but let's do it because this is ridiculous!" she added.
"This affects us, our family, it affects everyone else who's seeking mental health and needs support doing so," she concluded. "I'm just flabbergasted."
Some on social media criticized her for what they saw as an entitled attitude about healthcare insurance, especially that which has been written into law by Democrats.
President Donald Trump has taken measures to undermine Obamacare, most notably in October 2017 when he announced that he would cease "cost-sharing reduction payments" to insurance companies.
