He hated it, even cheered for its demise. To one Facebook user, Obamacare was a mistake that needs to be repealed. To that same Facebook user, Obamacare is also his health care insurer—a fact that went unknown to him until it was pointed out publicly online and spread all over in a bout of viral pointing and laughing.
This confused gentleman, whose Facebook status and comments have now been upvoted 21,000 times on Reddit and viewed 5 millions times on Imgur, came into this knowledge after sharing a C-SPAN article, titled “Senate votes 51 to 48 to repeal Obamacare,” with his Facebook friends and proclaiming this makes us “one step closer to fixing this mistake.” It wasn’t long before someone opposed his stance. A commenter wrote, “Really cool of you to treat those of us who need assistance provided by the ACA with such disregard.”
Clearly annoyed, OP replied, “We’re talking about Obamacare, not the ACA.” He also added that his own health insurance is through the ACA…
At this point, the first commenter and new commenters alike began to realize what was happening: OP was bashing Obamacare without realizing he was in fact receiving health insurance through Obamacare. Someone tried to tell him, but he wasn’t getting it.
More comments rolled in, but OP disappeared.
