She claims she is too fat to get health insurance. She has been saying this for years. But her most recent claim was just this week. As per her blog, if it wasn’t for the Affordable Care Act, she wouldn’t be able to get insurance. Because she is too fat.
Simple enough. And almost plausible. Until you dig a little deeper. Because Ragen has claimed that she has been unable to get insurance for 14 years between 1997 and 2011. Because of her weight. As shown here, in 2011.
Click the link and see for yourself. And don’t worry, if she changes the blog post, we have screenshots. But they are kind of long. And I want you to see for yourself.
So, in 2011 Ragen blogged that she has been unable to get health insurance for 14 years due to her weight.
In 2003, she wrote very specifically about having insurance through her work in this livejournal post.
In February, 2004, she needs a puppy so bad that her insurance should pay for it.
By 2007, she was a business woman. And offering an insurance plan through AmeriPlan to both her ‘admin angels’ and her ‘friends all around the country.’ But it was apparently more of a ‘medical discount plan.’ Not actual insurance. Proof here.
She made a similar puppy comment about her insurance in 2008.
Now, I wasn’t a math major. In fact, I have not had any formal training in math research. But I am 100% sure that if you had insurance through your work in 2003, you can’t claim, just 8 years later, that you haven’t had insurance for ’14 years’ because you are too fat and oppressed by society.
