Texas Mom’s Letter To Obama

Obamacare death starA Texas single mom’s letter expressing her “thanks” for Obamacare goes viral. Yolanda Vestal posted the following letter on her Facebook page, and it has since been shared over 63,000 times. One single mother venting her frustration and problems has enabled thousands more Americans to express their outrage over Obama’s signature legislation.

I share in her concerns, and my heart goes out to this struggling and courageous woman who expressed so perfectly her feelings about a callous president who could care less about the citizens of this nation.

Dear President Obama,

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all you have done and are doing. You see I am a single Mom located in the very small town of Palmer, Texas. I live in a small rental house with my two children. I drive an older car that I pray daily runs just a little longer. I work at a mediocre job bringing home a much lower paycheck than you or your wife could even imagine living on. I have a lot of concerns about the new “Obamacare” along with the taxes being forced on us Americans and debts you are adding to our country. I have a few questions for you Mr. President.

Have you ever struggled to pay your bills? I have.

Have you ever sat and watched your children eat and you eat what was left on their plates when they were done, because there wasn’t enough for you to eat to? I have

Have you ever had to rob Peter to pay Paul, and it still not be enough? I have.

Have you ever been so sick that you needed to see a doctor and get medicine, but had no health insurance because it was too expensive? I have.

Have you ever had to tell your children no, when they asked for something they needed? I have.

Have you ever patched holes in pants, glued shoes, replaced zippers, because it was cheaper than buying new? I have.

Have you ever had to put an item or two back at the grocery store, because you didn’t have enough money? I have.

Have you ever cried yourself to sleep, because you had no clue how you were going to make ends meet? I have.

My questions could go on and on. I don’t believe you have a clue what Americans are actually going through and honestly, I don’t believe you care. Not everyone lives extravagantly. While your family takes expensive trips that cost more than most of us make in two-four years, there are so many of us that suffer. Yet, you are doing all you can to add to the suffering. I think you are a very selfish and cold hearted man, who does not care what is best for the people he was elected by (not by me) to represent, but more so out for the glory of your name attached to history. So thank you Mr. President, thank you for pushing those of us that are barely staying afloat completely under water and driving America into the ground. You have made your mark in history, as the absolute worst and most hated president of the United States. God have mercy on your soul!

    Thank you Yolanda for your courageous letter. A chill run down my spine while reading it and I felt like I needed to have a good cry. So many of us feel as you do. God Bless you.


  2. ctdar says:

    God bless this woman and her family for having the courage to put on paper what so
    many are afraid to do these days under the tyrant residing in our whitehouse.
    I hope & pray brighter days are ahead for Yolanda and her children.

    Will there be an IRS audit over this?


  4. justfactsplz says:

    There are many people in America just like this young woman. I admire her courage. I wonder if the president will ever read it or if the person who takes care of WH mail will just toss it. May God bless her and her children.

    the only good news about 0bamaCare is…..

    that the liberal progressive Democrats are going to have to eat the same SH!T sandwich.


  6. realitycheck says:

    The fascinating thing this administration seems to ignore is that the so called “affordable plans” with the “better benefits” are not able to be paid by many of American families.

    Many American families struggle to make ends meet. Many(Most?) families do NOT have the extra $50 – $500 per month nor do they have the high deductible IF they ever need that coverage. THEY will be forced into collections and/or bankruptcy if they need extensive care. Monthly they may not be able to make ends meet.

    In the USA the personal savings rate is less than 3%. A family making 80,000 per year would theoretically have savings of $200 per month. Where is the extra money for the (un) Affordable Care Act monthly costs?

    The only people making out in this plan are those that receive government paid for plans. The parts of the population that did not have insurance and would have been forced into collections and/or bankruptcy IF they needed the system . Those people in the past could receive care but the cost was born by the rest of society.

    Hard working struggling American families will suffer so that the leeches of society have coverage? That is the crux of obummercare.

    …While your family takes expensive trips that cost more than most of us make in two-four years…

    When you add up the costs of Air Force One (and usually an additional flight because Moochelle cannot wait an additional 2 hours, or BO needs to be flown separately), advance security teams, secret service, and heaven only knows how much we pay for the entourage they travel with…. it costs more than most of us make in two-four decades !


  8. I believe Yolanda speaks for many Americans who are struggling to make ends meet under the damaging policies and laws of this Administration and Obama. You can feel her pain and what is really sad is that, while it may have made her feel better to get this off of her chest, Obama could care less. We’re the “beggars at the feast” and to be look down upon and reviled other than during election years, where the poorest and most wretched of us are selected to have our story told and garner false promises of help if “you elect me” from the politicians. Her letter reminded me of a letter my husband sent to Obama’s campaign manager in the early spring of 2008 during his first presidential campaign. It was right on point and hilarious. What was even funnier was their reply (which I can’t find.) The reply was something along the lines of “Thank you for contacting us and being excited by the Hope and Change we want to bring to America. You can help by donating by clicking on the link below.” Here is the e-mail:

    I pray to God (the one most Americans have historically believed in) that your candidate loses the upcoming election by the largest landslide in the history of our country. The fact that he has done as well as he has to this point, in spite of his lack of experience, background, heritage, preference for most things not in the best interest of America etc. is glaring proof that our forefathers were absolutely correct when they originally set down the guidelines for voting in this country. They did not believe that the average American would possess the knowledge or wisdom to place votes in the best interest of the country – and I think Mr. Obama’s success to this point proves that they were correct…. too many of the citizens of this country are simply sheep willing to be led blindly off to slaughter (or whatever wonderful things Mr. Obama has in-store politically for us)… I’m sure you’ll be quick to delete my message, but it helps to let you know how many of us in America still feel… and I’ll soon be off to say my bedtime prayers…. over and over… to God (not Allah)… and I’ll be sure to take a quick peak at my Bible while I’m thinking of our country and those poor souls who have died to keep us free.. while Mr. Obama can’t find his way to lower himself to salute our nation’s flag, place his hand on the Bible, sing our anthem… Lord help us if the idiots in this country prevail and elect the loser your campaign has laid before us!!!

    God Bless America (tell Mr. Obama to ponder that saying for a bit)… and believe me – we need God to bless us in a big way right now… for we know not what we might be doing!!!!

    Mr. Obama wants this country to believe in him… and he does not even believe in anything this country has always stood for — the kind of real change he probably has in mind for us is terrifying!!! Thank God our Congress will keep him from making any real difference if in-fact he ever lays his Muslim head in the White House!!!

    I’d like to offer my best wishes… but then I’d have to ask for forgiveness for my sin (lying) while I’m saying my prayers… So I guess I’ll just be honest and say I hope you guys go nowhere nice!!!

    A greatly concerned American in Texas — a great state that with any luck (and perhaps a new immigration policy) might remain that way… I suppose I should also mention that I’m a minority citizen (though not legally recognized that way – since I’m an American born white male).


  9. My life is easy and comfortable. I have enough money, not rich by most standards but quite secure and comfortable. The reason for this is that I am old now. My parents worked their butts off all their lives and saved. My Dad worked two eight hour jobs for two years to save enough money for a 20% down payment on their one and only home, while my Mother worked full time in the Post Office. When they passed I was shocked at how much money they had been able to save.

    My husband’s parents wrote nearly the same story with their lives. My father-in-law was in the Battle of the Bulge and I heard many times how “the water ran red with the blood of American boys” who fought for and sacrificed the very lives. My husband’s Mother armed bombs for the war effort and waited 5 years for her husband to return home. And they saved and worked and saved.

    Married now 40 years my husband and I started our own small business and employed 15 people for many years. We had a family, our employees had families and we worked and saved and worked and saved.

    I could not write a letter like Yolanda’s. My life story was quite different. I lived in the true America of freedom, liberty and common sense. Where “for God and Country” meant something and young men gave their lives to preserve a nation and a way of life like no other on earth before of since and certainly not now.

    Barack Obama does not believe in the America my parents knew. He believes in control, central planning and redistribution of wealth. He didn’t create these ideas himself. He didn’t “think up some new and wonderful plan.” How can America NOT question his true motives when he shows us everyday that he wants us to become what our boys fought so hard against? How can we NOT question his loyalty when he lays his hand on the Bible and swears to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic – so help me God – and then BECOMES the enemy of all America stood for himself?

    The downward spiral that America is on did not start with Barack Hussein Obama. We have been drifting away from our foundation ideals for a long time. Barack Obama is merely the clear and visible picture of what we will become when we completely loose sight of who we really were.

    It is my hope that Barack Obama was sent to us as a wake up call. That his attitude, actions, lies, manipulations and arrogance will be enough to wake us up. Nothing so unites people as a COMMON ENEMY. He embodies that enemy.

    The downward spiral of America and the destruction of the American dream did not begin with Barack Obama but we MUST make it end with him.

    This is very sad. Most of the information in this blog is one sided. Please don’t bring God in the middle of your mess. It wasn’t Obama who shut the government down costing American’s billions of dollars but of course you fault him. It wasn’t Obama that put us in an almost depression but of course you fault him. If you barely making an income, you should qualify for EBT assistants. You are a single mother and you qualify to further your education for a better job or new job training. Spend you energy bettering yourself instead of sending these letters.

      Typical liberal response. Don’t work so hard, Shut up and take the handouts. And don’t mention God!


    • ctdar says:

      Her mess? Get out of your ivory tower jack and live a day in the life of regular people before you open your yap and tell her what to do.


    • It IS 100% Obamas’ fault for shutting the down the government. The ENTIRE government was funded with the ONLY exception being Obama Care. Read the Constitution. It is the LAW of the Land – not Obama. His job is to implement laws not make them. The division of powers gives the power of the purse to the House of Representatives for good reason. And now this King of Fools has to delay this monstrosity program of socialistic redistribution anyway! Signature Legislation, Ha!!! That means Obama Care is the BEST he did in his Presidency. I agree it is his best! Enough said.
