Mr. Speaker, my constituents are asking a simple question, and the question they are asking the White House is: Can you hear us now, and do you understand this frustration that we feel?
I have got a constituent, Mr. Speaker, Diane, who got this letter from her insurance, Medicare, with these couple of sentences:
Effective January 1, all plans must be compliant with the new health care law; therefore, the insurance company plan you have now will no longer be available after December 31.
What happened to Diane? A plan that she liked, a plan that she was satisfied with as an 11-year cancer survivor, a plan that she could afford now was taken away based on ObamaCare, and she was ``migrated'' into ObamaCare, and her premium was nearly doubling.
What does Diane have to say about President Obama's offer to fix this? She said this:
I want to see legislation passed to fix this problem, legislation I can trust. I don't want an administrative trust. I don't trust that to anyone.
We need to fix this. We need to pass this legislation.
