What a happy diversion from the news of the day!
The sad fact is... This does have to do with the news of the day. When so many ask "why are some locking things up in Washington on a fight they can't win" this is why! The overwhelming success of the toddler’s trick shot videos brought in money that his parents plan to save for Titus and his three siblings. However, that plan has officially hit its first snag, according to the toddler’s father, Joseph Ashby. The problem’s name is Obamacare. The money the family makes on the video now that it's gone viral is minimal now that they got a letter from the government that informed them that their policy no longer complies with federal law under Obamacare. The replacement plan allegedly comes with a roughly 535 percent deductible increase — before the plan helps out with medical bills. The father is proud his video can if nothing else, inform people on the trouble with Obamacare as his family experiences it first hand. In his words... “I just want to make it clear that if my family was in the deepest pit of Nova Scotia with the Rocky Mountains piled on top of us, we’d make it out. We’re not here to complain,” the father said. “I just want people to know what Obamacare is — and isn’t.” The original Titus trick shot video has more than 12 million views on YouTube Ashby says of situation in Washington, “The folks in Washington who are doing so much to try and stop the law are fighting a good fight. We all want people to get medical care, but we can’t embrace a law that hurts so many others in the process.”
