Debra Fishericks is a grandmother living in Virginia Beach, Virginia who suffers from kidney cancer but she is the latest victim of Obamacare. She recently learned that her health insurance plan will be dropped due to Obamacare and she is unable to afford any alternatives.

Fishericks, a 10-year employee at Atkinson Realty, once had monthly premiums she could afford, that is until Obamacare kicked in.

“We were happy, we had great insurance. We had continuing care for our employees,” Betsy Atkinson, owner of the realty company, told WDBJ.

But, under Obamacare, the company notified Debra and other employees that their coverage didn’t comply with Obamacares rules and regulations. She looked at the Obamcare exchange web site for a new policy but cant afford any of the plans.



“They just go up higher and higher when there is a pre-existing [condition]. There’s so many unanswered questions,” she says in a video.
