    GUTHRIE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. GUTHRIE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to share some powerful stories that Kentuckians have shared with me regarding their experiences with ObamaCare.



    Jim Holloway of Glasgow was notified that his small business insurance plan will be canceled. Here is the letter: Dear James Holloway, II, you will be moving to a health care reform, also called the Affordable Care Act compliant plan.

    Mr. Holloway told me, ``The plan I had was not a junk plan. I liked my plan.'' Unfortunately, he will not be able to keep that plan.

    Tanya Veitschegger of Bowling Green also received a cancelation notice of her plan. After calling her insurance agent, she learned that a similar plan to what she and her husband had was available at a cost of $490 more a month.

    Vince Berta, also of Bowling Green, said that by being forced to go onto the exchange, his family's insurance rate will jump from $375 a month to $849 a month. He asks a fair question: ``An over 100 percent increase--what part of this is affordable?'' The fact is that President Obama repeatedly promised Americans that if they liked their plan they could keep it. I heard over and over from Kentuckians that is not the case.
