Many college students are unaware of how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will affect them. The law allows kids to stay on their parents health care plans until they are 26. But what happens next?

In a letter that has now gone viral, 26 year old Ashley Dionne explained her experience to radio host Dennis Prager. 

"My name is Ashley Dionne and I’m a 26-year-old recent graduate from Michigan.

The phony Obamacare signup poster boy made me want to send a message about how Obamacare is really affecting people.

I graduated from The University of Michigan in 2009. In my state, this used to mean something, but even with a bachelor’s I was told I was too educated and wouldn’t stay. I watched as kids with GEDs and high school diploma’s took the low-paying jobs for which I applied.

I went back to school and got a second degree and finally found work at a gym. I work nights and only get 32 hours a week for eight dollars an hour. I’m unable to find a second job at this time.

I have asthma, ulcers, and mild cerebral palsy. Obamacare takes my monthly rate from $75 a month for full coverage on my “Young Adult Plan,” to $319 a month. After $6,000 in deductibles, of course.

Liberals claimed this law would help the poor. I am the poor, the working poor, and I can’t afford to support myself, let alone older generations and people not willing to work at all.

This law has raped my future.

It will keep me and kids my age from having a future at all.

This is the real face of Obamacare and it isn’t pretty." 


In a statement to Campus Reform, Dionne clarified her reason for writing the letter.  “I wanted to get my message about Obamacare out, because I'm being directly and negatively affected by it, but I know it's not just me.”  

“Obamacare will make my life more difficult. It will hurt more people than it will help.”

Ashley Dionne is a 2009 graduate of the University of Michigan and a 2012 graduate of Baker College.

@campusreform Then I would have been arrested and charged with a "hate crime" because I am white and I stand up for myself against niggers.

@campusreform I would have knocked her teeth out if she got up in my white face with that Hyena breath and that middle finger.
