WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today made the following statement on the Floor of the U.S. House of Representatives discussing the impact ObamaCare is having in Michigan:

“Mr. Speaker, President Obama misled the American people about ObamaCare and now he’s admitted it.  Here’s a letter to me from a small business owner in my district:

‘My husband and I have a small medical education business, and ever since ObamaCare passed our business has been cut in half, doctors are not spending money on education, so for the last four years our business has really suffered.
‘Then we were told we could keep our insurance.  We had good insurance, not junk.  We currently pay $514.00 a month with a $2,000.00 deductible; we were cancelled as of 12/31/13.  To get anything near what we had, we will have to pay $1900.00 a month, which we cannot afford.  So much for affordable health care.
‘This is the first time in 30 years that we might not be able to have health insurance.  We have always run our life not depending on the government for handouts and now we are losing our insurance.  I ask you what are we to do!  American’s are suffering.  This is just wrong, yes I believe that something needed to be done, but not this!’

“It is time to keep the promise made to the American people.”
