100s of thousands lose the healthcare they had


Liar in chief said you could keep your insurance.


Health insurance companies are sending notices of cancellation to hundreds of thousands of people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more expensive policies.

An estimated 14 million people purchase their own coverage because they don’t get it through their jobs. The impact of the cancellations has been felt across the country.

Florida Blue, for example, is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual business in the state. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent notices to 160,000 people – about half of its individual business in the state. Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh has canceled about 20 percent of its individual market policies, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is canceling about 45 percent.

Both Independence and Highmark are canceling so-called “guaranteed issue” policies, which were sold to customers who had pre-existing medical conditions when they signed up. Policyholders with regular policies because they did not have health problems will be given an option to extend their coverage through next year.

What a doosh.

Let it burn. It will benefit the R's in midterms. This is single largest failed piece of legislation in this country's history. It's so bad it doesn't even make me mad anymore, I just laugh at the incompetence.

The people who claim the ACA is a grand plan to usher in single payer are about as dumb as the people who claimed Roberts had a grand plan when he ruled ACA constitutional.

Frustrating.

Getting out of this mess is going to be painful as frick for this country. I'm sick of the "team mentality" about who wins or loses. We all lose with garbage legislation like the ACA. Just so very sick of politicians.


And I'm one of the ones who'll be receiving one of those cancellation letters. Shit, it's probably sitting in my mail box right now.

The masses that support Obama are idiots and they will believe the lies that the Obama administration is going to give that "the insurance companies ran the prices up and we couldn't control it since they are different in all 50 states." They'll convince them it'll be grand to have single payer.

It'll hurt me some, but I am gainfully employed (as much as I despise my job) so I am able to enroll in the corporate HC. It just isn't as good a deal as the individual was for me (young, single, healthy).

It has however given me serious reason to pause and question becoming self-employed. Sucks as self-employment is my dream job. If the ACA had never been passed I would be self-employed already.

This about sums up this ACA law at this point in time

The $1,000,000 question is..........
Can you be honest enough with yourself to call it what it is?

telling the truth to other people."

No, they can't unless they have a personal come to Jesus type of meeting. We are at this point because the masses have been indoctrinated over the years with lies. They've had a press that is an attack dog for the democratic party, attacking anyone that shows any type of dissent. We now have a democratic party that is outwardly attacking the citizens and have the IRS and DoJ using their power to silence and punish all the while their attack dog attacks them as being dangerous and using rhetoric that causes people to go shooting sprees.

We are in a nation that resembles the early years of some of the world's murderous tyrants we saw in the 20th century.

Why is that?

Obama said directly (and if I had it in front of me I'd quote it) that he wants single payer and that there will be interim steps to get there and it could take 15-20 years to get there.

Obama may lie like a rug to get what he wants, but he'll flat out tell you what it is he wants.
