    WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, besides sticker shock, American families are beginning to realize that they were misled and that ObamaCare is not as great as advertised. Sheryl from Columbia says: I realize the ACA is controversial, but it was billed as something better than what the insurance companies were offering to private parties. What we actually purchased is very inferior to the high deductible policy I currently have when out of network.

    Edward from Chapin has made several attempts to enroll his family in the government health care insurance program since the beginning of October. Unfortunately, due to the faulty government-run Web site and the complicated nature of the law, he tried for 2 months to successfully enroll his 17-year-old daughter in a government health plan.

    The government's role is to protect our fellow citizens, not make tasks such as enrolling in health care more expensive or difficult. ObamaCare must be repealed and replaced to create jobs and put health care decisions back in the hands of the American people.

    In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
