Doug Truax on Health Care
Truax, whose successful business provides health care consulting services, noted that ObamaCare is already wreaking havoc on the middle class in Illinois and the rest of America.
"These are just a few of the thousands of Illinoisans already learning first-hand how ObamaCare is a disaster," Truax said. "These folks were happy with their health care and now they are being forced to pay significantly more. This is a hardship for many Illinois families."
"President Obama and Democrats like Dick Durbin forced a partisan trainwreck of a plan on America without a single Republican vote," noted Truax. "There were plenty of good ideas Obama and Durbin ignored in order to please his ideological base and ramrod the legislation through Congress."
"My plan is being terminated and the comparable plan they're offering me is 45.7 percent more expensive per month. It's gone from $385 to $561,"said John, a single father who was recently laid off.
"They promised me that I'd be able to keep that plan and that was the promise that was made over and over and over again, and I believed it," said Steve, a small business owner, "Now I'm finding out without a shadow of a doubt that the insurance plan that I was very happy with, that I thought I was doing the best by my family, to have a good insurance plan and now it's being canceled."
Truax believes these stories prove why the 2,300 page law just does more harm to middle class Illinois than good.
