I am so sick of all the anti-ObamaCare advertisements from all the politicians on TV everyday and the continuous bashing of President Obama that I felt it was time for the truth to be spoken.

I am a 64-year-old self-employed businessman who has had to buy my own health insurance for the past 26 years.

I spent more than $30,000 last year on a $1,900 monthly premium with a $10,000 deductible and $7,000 worth of prescriptions.

After a lot of encouragement from my brother-in-law, I got on the website to investigate.

After a few emails and three phone calls I am now paying $1,500 a month for a $3,000 deductible with $20 co-pays on prescriptions and $35 doctor visits.

It looks like my costs will be about half what they were last year. I don’t care what party you are, saving $15,000 a year sounds pretty good to me.

Spend a few minutes and check it out for yourself. You might be surprised like I was. Thank you, President Obama.
