U.S. Senator Harry Reid has been one of ObamaCare’s biggest proponents. He has been a key cheerleader for the Obama Administration, playing up how great the law is and how those who criticize it are terrible, perhaps even anti-American. Perhaps what Harry Reid didn’t realize was that his vote to pass ObamaCare would cost 90,000 of his constituents to lose there health care coverage. Way to represent the interests of your people, Harry.
Changes to the insurance market, brought upon by ObamaCare, have been devastating to small businesses in America and Reid’s home state.
The changes put as many as 90,000 policies across Nevada at risk of cancellation or nonrenewal this fall, said Las Vegas insurance broker William Wright, president of Chamber Insurance and Benefits. That’s more than three times the 25,000 enrollees affected in October, when Obamacare-compliant plans first hit the market.
That’s 90,000 families that may be left without health coverage because of the law that their Senator so vociferously supports.
And it’s not going to be the Democrats’ favorite trial lawyers, casino owners or clean energy executives who are going to be without insurance. It’s the little guy, the average Nevada citizen who Reid claims to represent.Read More
