Dear President
I have been so frustrated and angry since May 1 when our new insurance policy went into effect. My husband and I are presently 62 years young. We have been working all of our adult years raising two children. We are both independent contractors. I am a licensed Social Worker and My husband is a Salesman. We buy our own insurance plan. We both voted for you. Our plan with Horizon Blue Cross/Blue Shield of New Jersey was cancelled because of Obamacare. We had to buy a new plan at 500 dollars MORE a month and the plan does not have most of our doctors because it is new. Now we need referrals and have a 1500 dollar deductible. How has this helped us?? we consider ourselves middle class and because of this amazing increase in healthcare for a horrible plan ,we will have to work way past retirement age. I am so frustrated with you and cannot understand how this Obamacare has helped in anyway!!!!!
