benswann.com: Colorado Obamacare Advocate Loses Insurance Plan

“If you like your insurance plan, you can keep it” is becoming the most notorious political lie since “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Millions of Americans nationwide – and about 250,000 in Colorado alone – are losing their health coverage as a result of Obamacare. In some cases, this has extended to the very people who championed the program hardest.
One of these people is Kathy Wagner. A now-retired nurse of 35 years, Wagner and her husband are fairly healthy, and strongly supported Obamacare when it was being passed. When it was implemented, however, their insurance company dropped their coverage. To buy a similar plan, the Wagners must now pay over $1000/month – 35% more – and their deductible is still higher.
