Cancer patient says he's being forced to make life or death decision after health plan cancelled

A South Carolina cancer patient told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Thursday night he is being forced to make a life or death decision after his health insurance plan was cancelled due to ObamaCare.

Bill Elliot, who originally reached out to “The Kelly File” on Facebook to share his story, said he can no longer afford to pay his medical bills and does not want to take on the new costs because he does not want to put a “burden” on his family.

“If I make it that long I’ll pay the $95 or whatever fine and I’m just going to let nature take its course,” he said.

Elliot said he feels “misled,” adding he voted for President Obama over former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney because of Obama's repeated promise he could keep his insurance under the new health care law, which has turned out to be untrue for millions of Americans like him.

He also slammed the president's apology over the health care cancellations.

“I believe that was more of an insult to me and other people who have been cancelled,” Elliot said.
