McCONNELL. Mr. President, I realize Democrats want to deflect
attention of the impact of ObamaCare from our constituents. That is one
the reasons we are having these nominee votes. But our constituents
have the right to be heard, so I wish to share some thoughts from a
constituent of mine in Owensboro, Cheryl Russell. Here is what she
We got a letter from our insurance company saying our
current policy will not meet the affordable care act, which
means it will go away.
According to our insurance company, we will have to take pediatric dental and vision insurance, [even though] we don't have kids.
They said it was because of ObamaCare. . . .
She goes on: Another plan . . . will cost us over $150.00 more a month plus our deductible goes up to $5700.
Please keep taking a stand against Obama Care . . . not only are we going to lose our insurance, but when we go to a different policy we have to pay more. . . .
We are 58 & 56 years old. We will have to work the rest of our lives just to pay for our insurance. . . .
This isn't fair and it isn't right.
The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Senator from Missouri.
