 Ohio Health Care Lobbyist Pays $30,000 a Year for Health Insurance
KHN reports on a Columbus, Ohio, health care lobbyist who writes a monthly check of $2,556 for his family's health insurance.
"His insurance rates soared over the past decade after his daughter, Lauren, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and his wife, Trish, developed breast cancer. After his daughter died at age 8 in 2007, his rates dropped by a few hundred dollars a month - but then shot up by 20 percent the following year, he said. ...

But while Colby said he supports President Barack Obama's efforts to overhaul health care, he would like the president to do a few things differently" (Galewitz, 9/10).
