Democratic California Sen. Barbara Boxer still assures her constituents that they can keep their existing health plans, despite new testimony from a California cancer patient losing her health insurance under Obamacare.
“Everyone now is clamoring about Affordable Care Act winners and losers. I am one of the losers. My grievance is not political,” California resident Edie Littlefield Sundby wrote in a heartrending Sunday night op-ed for The Wall Street Journal that quickly went viral on the Internet.
“For almost seven years I have fought and survived stage-4 gallbladder cancer, with a five-year survival rate of less than 2% after diagnosis. I am a determined fighter and extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been canceled effective Dec. 31,” Sundby wrote.
