What is left out of this article is that Hoft's insurance carrier is exiting the Missouri market.  This may or may not be due to Obamacare;  it is common for carriers to pull out of states when the cost of doing business is prohibitive.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

An article posted here yesterday.   I'll try to find it.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

Here it is:

Thanks.  From the comments following the post it looks as if he was in the Missouri high-risk pool, which was being shut down.  From what I understand, those high-risk pools are supposed to shut down under Obamacare, which means - if that's where he was getting his coverage - that Obama and Obamacare are, in fact, responsible for his losing his coverage.

That being said, I'm not going to take an online comment as the absolute last word on the matter; still, in the absence of other evidence, it seems a reasonable conclusion.

What a story! I hope he comes through this just fine.  It was good to see so many conservative bloggers come together to help him. I'm glad you posted this, because I wondered what kind of illness he had that kept him away so long.
