BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. GRAHAM. Mr. President, I have two stories from South Carolina I will quickly share with the body.

Scott, from Goose Creek, SC:

I am a college professor from Columbia, SC, at a private university. We are up for our insurance open enrollment. I am 35 years old, a vegetarian, never smoked, ridiculously low blood pressure and cholesterol.

Obviously, I have nothing in common with Scott.

Continuing Scott's story:

I noticed the following about my policy: My share of premiums went up by 35 percent to 40 percent. In addition, my actual policy changed. My deductible tripled from $250 to $750. I cannot get regular monthly prescriptions at my pharmacy now. I am sure there are other changes that I have not examined closely enough to notice.

Thomas Dougall, from Elgin, SC: After submitting his personal information on healthcare.gov received a phone call from a Mr. Justin Hadley, a North Carolina resident, who informed him that when he signed onto healthcare.gov, he received all of Mr. and Mrs. Dougall's personal information.

This is beginning to be a very famous case.

There are 572 people who have been enrolled in ObamaCare in the State of South Carolina.

ObamaCare care is not working, and I fear it will never work. The best way to fix it is to repeal it and replace it with something that will work.

I yield the floor.
