Obama Supporters Becoming Collateral Damage to Affordable Care Act

Policy cancellations, enrollment frustration, cut in work hours, loss of wages – the fury continues to mount against Obamacare as more people become collateral damage in the Administration’s healthcare ‘train wreck.’ That anger is causing disenchanted Obama supporters to make more than a policy change.
