    Received health care cancellation - thanks Obama voters

    For forcing you stupid federally mandated healthcare upon my family. We were happy with what we had. This country was founded upon getting away from a king who did similar things. Going to check out Singapore. This country is broke financially and morally. Might finalky be time to go while i can still afford citizenshi.

    • The 15 Mil. who got the canceled are the self employed who buy their own health insurence. THERE IS ANOTHER 93 Mil. employed whose health insurance will be canceled in the coming months. It is going to hit Obama's approval rating hard,hard....

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • please let the door hit you on the way out :-)
      Of course it happened to you, who else ? Hah !

      • Hummingbird, NMH's credibility remains unclear, but the fact remains that millions are being told that their healthcare policies are being cancelled due to ZeroCare - i.e. the policies don't CONform to ZeroCare's standard. 146,000 alone in Minnesota that we know of so far have been told that their policies are being cancelled, and in order to get something that CONforms, folks are having to pay more, for stuff they don't even want or need - e.g. "one flew over the cuckoo's nest" coverage. I'm not planning on going nuts anytime soon, so why must my healthcare coverage include that??? And why do I need to pay for it. We know government, today it's cuckoo's nest coverage, tomorrow, the sky is the limit. Make no mistake the industry will lobby to get everything and the kitchen sink thrown in to increase revenue and the bottom line. Sold out and still defending it. Yes We Can!!! Nothing is being done to address the cost curve, so when will that happen???? [crickets, chirp chirp]

    • [ST. PAUL, Minn. — Amid the uproar over insurance cancellations blamed on the federal health care overhaul, Minnesota regulators say state law prevents actual cancellations of health plans.

      Still, at least 146,000 policy holders in Minnesota have received letters saying their plan will no longer be available, but they can enroll in a new -- and typically more expensive -- plan their insurer offers.

      Gloria Keogh of Burnsville, Minn., recently received notice from her insurer that her current individual policy did not comply with the Affordable Care Act. Keogh said she's "well-versed" on the federal health care law and knew the changes were coming, but that didn't lessen the sting.

      "Now I have no choice but to pay more and I cannot afford it," she said. "The increase is $166 per month."

      The new plan came with benefits she said she doesn't need or want, such as mental health coverage.]

      ZeroCare strikes again. Yay We Can!!! Weren't costs meant to come down?? With these unaffordable higher costs it's no wonder ZeroCare is mandating plans to include "one flew over the cuckoo's nest" coverage.

        missed,
        " state law prevents actual cancellations " and so what needs to happen is that each and every person involved in generating those letters needs to be slowed down by stainless steel snake shot, then trucked to the Hill Country to be fed to feral hogs,--thereby creating more "job creation" in the Austin food truck sector for locavore BBQ.
        It's got nothing to to with Obamacare at all.
        Only with how many welfare queens are in the health insurance biz.

    • [Going to check out Singapore.]

      LOL! You do that, pal...but I doubt you could get citizenship there after they check you out and read all the #$%$ you post on this site.

      But, if you somehow manage to get in, they do have a good healthcare system.

      "Healthcare in Singapore is mainly under the responsibility of the Singapore Government's Ministry of Health. Singapore generally has an efficient and widespread system of healthcare. Singapore was ranked 6th in the World Health Organization's ranking of the world's health systems in the year 2000."

      "Singapore has a non-modified universal healthcare system where the government ensures affordability of healthcare within the public health system, largely through a system of compulsory savings, subsidies and price controls. Singapore's system uses a combination of compulsory savings from payroll deductions to provide subsidies within a nationalized health insurance plan known as Medisave. Within Medisave, each citizen accumulates funds that are individually tracked, and such funds can be pooled within and across an entire extended family. The vast majority of Singapore citizens have substantial savings in this scheme. One of three levels of subsidy is chosen by the patient at the time of the healthcare episode."

    • Think how grateful you'll be when you get really sick.
      Obama just saved your home and your retirement.
      Cuz you were playing Rissian Roulette. And didn't even know it.
      You woulda been nomorehome,
      Aaaaahhhhh
