Obamacareby Senator Daniel Coats

COATS. Mr. President, the President has publicly promised all
Americans: If you like your plan, you can keep it. If you like your
doctor, you can keep that doctor. The only change, he said, you will
see is falling costs.
Well, Donna, a senior citizen from New Albany--senior citizens are not supposed to be affected by this ObamaCare--received a letter telling her that she and her husband could no longer keep their Medicare Advantage plan. It was terminated. So they found another plan--much higher cost, much higher premium, much higher deductible.
Cynthia from Lafayette, IN: I am self-employed and purchase health care [[Page S8017]] privately. I am a single parent with a mortgage payment and a child in high school. My plan was canceled, and I was given an estimate for a replacement plan that is almost double what I am paying today.
Mr. President, you have not kept your promise to seniors. You have not kept your promise to single working mothers. You have not kept your promise to families. You have not kept your promise to the people whom I represent. How can Americans trust that this government takeover will work if you cannot keep your promises to the American people? The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. The Senator from North Dakota.
