Johnny Bench has health insurance cancelled

Johnny Bench is arguably the greatest catcher to ever play baseball.

Over the course of his illustrious 17-year career, all with the Reds, Bench garnered 14 All-Star selections, 10 Gold Glove Awards, and two National League MVP Awards, among other individual accolades. Furthermore, he was instrumental in helping the Big Red Machine win six division titles, four pennants, and two World Series titles. In 1989, he was unanimously inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

As accomplished as Bench's resume is, it wasn't enough to keep him from getting affected by the Affordable Care Act ("ObamaCare") just like the rest of Americans, as Bench announced via Twitter earlier this week that his insurance has been cancelled.
Now, this blog has never been a place for politics, but it seems as though nobody with a prior insurance plan is safe when it comes to the new government-mandated health system. Not even Johnny Bench.
