    SMITH of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, we have heard the comment numerous times, ``If you like your health care, you can keep it,'' what the President had said. Mr. Speaker, we know that that was not true. I would like to give you an example of just one of thousands that I have had from my district.

    This comes from Frank. When he contacted our office, he said: My first personal introduction to ObamaCare was a cancelation notice on December 31, 2014.

    He said: I wasn't canceled for numerous claims or because of my health. I was canceled because of ObamaCare.

    Let me tell you, he lost his health insurance; and this is the change from his current health insurance that he was supposed to keep to now what he has to have. His current policy premium was $237.86. His new premium is $531.89, an increase of 123.6 percent. His deductible on his old policy was $2,500. His new policy deductible is $6,350. His copay on his prior policy was a zero copay within the network. His new program has a 40 percent pay above his deductible.

    The SPEAKER pro tempore. The time of the gentleman has expired.
