In the spirit of Halloween, let's look at a few of the Obamacare horror stories that have emerged over the past couple of weeks.

In all, small businesses and ordinary Americans are losing their coverage - and the Obama administration is trying to keep insurers from talking about the problems associated with the new health care law.

Boo: This small business owner's premiums went up 400+%. He has to pay for maternity coverage for his 59-year old wife.

Boo: Deborah Cavallaro, a real estate agent in Los Angeles, also experienced the sticker shock from Obamacare; her insurer booted her from her individual plan and offered a new one, which costs 65% more.

Boo: Sue Klinkhamer, a former Democratic staffer on the Hill, defended Obamacare for two years before the new law booted her from her health care plan.

Boo:  Over 2 million Americans have been kicked off their health care plans.  It seems that Sue isn't alone.

Boo: More casualties of this massive federal power grab.

Boo: The optics are horrible, which is why the Obama administration is "leaning" on insurers to keep quiet about Obamacare's defects.
