  (Mrs. WAGNER asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Mrs. WAGNER. Mr. Speaker, in recent weeks, I have received far too 
many heartbreaking stories from the people of Missouri's Second 
District about how government-run health care is impacting their lives.
  Today, I rise to put a face on the horrors of ObamaCare and tell Jim 
and Kim Curtis' story, who hail from Arnold, Missouri.
  This is their story in their own words:

       We, the working middle class, are the ones who are being 
     hurt by this law. We struggle

     every day to make ends meet. But now, because of ObamaCare, 
     we received a notice from the insurance company that the plan 
     we currently pay for does not meet the guidelines, and we 
     will no longer be covered on January 1, 2014.
       Now we have to find an extra $500 to $600 minimum per month 
     to cover the insurance that is comparable to what we had 
     before. I have no idea how we will afford that kind of money 
     and pay our bills and mortgage each month.

  Mr. Speaker, this is just one of millions of examples of real people 
being hurt by ObamaCare.
