                        OBAMACARE HURTS FAMILIES

  (Mr. WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, millions of Americans have 
received cancellation notices for their insurance policies as a result 
of ObamaCare's failed legislation. The Wall Street Journal anticipates 
this number to reach 10 million by January 1.
  Citizens living in the Second District of South Carolina are 
experiencing the brunt of the administration's deception. Becky from 
West Columbia is shocked that her world-class cancer care is at risk. 
Frank from Lexington will be forced to buy new health insurance with 
higher premiums of 33 percent. Joe from Aiken has been notified that 
his wife will be removed from their current health care plan January 1. 
He writes:

       The only problem is that now we have two premiums to pay, 
     two deductibles to meet, and an additional thing to worry 
     about while we are trying to raise kids and be responsible 

  These real-life problems are affecting all American families. We must 
stop the damage by passing the Keep Your Health Plan Act to assist 
families and promote jobs.
  In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget 
September the 11th in the global war on terrorism. Our prayers are for 
the people in the Philippines for typhoon recovery.
