Sue Klinkhamer, who worked for Democratic Congressman Bill Foster before he was kicked out of office for his support of the healthcare law, said that she was a defender of the President’s healthcare law for years because she thought it would finally provide affordable healthcare to all Americans. That was until she herself had to enroll and found that the law was anything but affordable.
From the Sun Times: “I am a Democrat and I believe in health care for all,” she said. “And I was excited that previously uninsured people could now get insurance on the open market. But this is not affordable to me.”
Thus far, Congressman Foster has remained steadfast in support of ObamaCare, despite a growing number of complaints from constituents as well as a former employee.
“Congressman Bill Foster should be very afraid that even the most ardent supporters of the healthcare law are now turning against him,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokewoman Katie Prill said Tuesday. “It’s clear that this is hurting Illinois families and it’s time for Congressman Foster to explain why he continues to support this disastrous law.”
