UNDATED (WHBL) - Thousands of Wisconsinites who buy health insurance on their own may soon have to buy more expensive and comprehensive coverage under Obamacare.  Wisconsin has about 180-thousand people who get coverage on their own, and not through an employer.  The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says many will have a chance to renew their current policies for at least one more year, but thousands no longer have that option.  W-P-S in Madison has started to send cancellation notices to around nine-thousand of its customers.  The firm said they did not renew their existing policies early,  and they're not in plans which are grandfathered-and-exempt from the new quality requirements of the Affordable Care Act.  U-S Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin has introduced a bill allowing Americans to keep their current plans if they prefer.  Johnson says he wants President Obama to keep his repeated promise that if Americans like their current health plans, they can keep them.
