The CNN report quotes President Obama as saying, "I recently received a letter from a woman named Jessica Sanford in Washington state. And here's what she wrote, I am a single mom, no child support, self-employed. and I haven't had insurance for 15 years because it's too expensive. I was crying the other day when I signed up, so much stress lifted."

UPDATE: She now says she can't afford insurance in Washington state. Evidently all the tax credits she received due to a "calculation error" have been revoked, and what she's left with is a gigantic premium that she cannot possibly afford.

What once was a shining success story for Obama is now forced to pay a TAX of $95 and go without insurance.

I know, I know ... this is just more of that insignificant Grand Rapids-only "babble" the usual liberal suspects are no longer interested in reading, right Sassy??

I wonder if Obama will read the update to us too. Because it's the right thing to do. Ahh, that happened a long time ago. What does it really matter anyway. He's got bigger things to be doing like going out golfing and thinking of ways to explain why he was so persistent about not delaying this whole thing. Knowing six months prior that it was a mess and not ready to be rolled out.

If history is any indicator he'll throw her under the bus and/or blame the insurance companies ... or Bush.

Or the GOP, or us for finding ourselves in this position, or the weather, or some made up distractions. I'm sure there is more but that's all I could think of at the moment.
