Once touted by the White House as an Obamacare success story, Jessica Sanford has now discovered that, no, she won’t be able to afford new health insurance coverage, thanks to the very law that President Obama said would make it “affordable.”

“Jessica Sanford was cited by the president as an Obamacare success story at a health care event he had here at the White House in the Rose Garden on October 21,” says a reporter for CNN, reporting from the White House. “That of course being just last month. The 48-year-old single mom from Washington state purchased what she considered to be affordable health care — a life-changing event, she said — on the Washington state health exchange. She decided she was so excited about this news, she wanted to write an e-mail to the president to say that this had really changed her life and that she was thankful for the Afforable Care Act. The president included her e-mail in his remarks to people on hand for the event. Here’s a bit of what the president had to say.”

At the press event, Obama summarized the email:

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.”
