Ah, no. It's insurance companies that are cancelling. There is nothing in the ACA that requires such cancellations.
Perhaps you should investigate a bit before you post.
Rand Paul, such a arrogant little fart. Rachel Maddow has caught Rand Paul using Wikipedia direct quotes in his speeches, without attribution. Not a big deal, in the scheme of things.
Why can't Rand Paul just say: "Oh, damn, yeah, I messed up. Great movies, great quotes, I'll be more careful next time."
No, he can't. Why? It will require him to realize he is no where near the statesman and philosopher he thinks he is.
What does he do: "I would challenge someone to a duel, if this were the 1700s"
Typical of Republicans: challenge their insular world of nonsense and fantasy, they want to beat you up, shoot you, or commit other acts of violence.
Counting the days until the GOP is completely out of power.
So simple, yet you don't understand. Why? Because you don't want to understand.
If you currently have a worthless #$%$ insurance policy with a low rate, you can keep it.
If the insurance company drops you, or cancels the policy, or doesn't offer renewal, the new policy will have to confirm to ACA standards.
Did Obama cancel the policy? No. Did the ACA cancel the policy? No. Can you keep your policy? Yes, so long as the insurance company hasn't cancelled it.
Nice thoughts, but you're overthinking this. The next plan should look like Canada, or England or Germany, or the Netherlands, or France, or Belgium, or Sweden, or Finland, or Japan, or any other modern national healthcare plan.
The problem has been solved by many countries. We've solved it too: Medicare for all.
Seems when we need to go to war, we suddenly find enough money. Enough money to kill anyone we need to. Perhaps we can also find the money to save the lives of anyone we need to.
Check it in Consumer Reports.
Conisder the case of Diane Barrette, a 56-year-old woman from Winter Haven, Fla. Her story was featured in this CBS News report and endlessly echoed on the Internet. She was upset because Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida was canceling her $54-a-month “GoBlue plan 91” and offering to replace it with a $591-a-month “Blue Options Essential plan.”
The plan pays only the first $50 of doctor visits, leaving Ms. Barrette to pay the rest. Specialist visits can cost several hundred dollars.
Only the first $15 of a prescription is covered. Some prescriptions can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars a month
The plan only pays for hospitalization for "complications of pregnancy," which are unlikely given Ms. Barrette's age and in any event only the first $50 is covered.
It pays $50 for a mammogram that can cost several hundred dollars, and only pays $50 apiece for advanced imaging tests such as MRIs and CT scans and then only when used for osteoporosis screening.
What have I been telling you. As usual, most GOP issues are based on lies, and in addition, you have to educate a willfully ignorant and stupid Republican.
All good points. Most all of our troubles in taxation can be fixed with rolling back the Reagan tax cuts, and by making government work again.
The US population should have an acid test: do you think government can and should work for the benefit of people? If the candidate says no, don't elect them.
Walking through an airport, I see a sign: "Prudential has $3,600,000,000,000 in Life Insurance In Force"
I though gee, that sounds like a lot. What do their assets look like?
Well, their total assets, 2012 = $709,298,000,000. In other words, 3.6Trillion backed by 709 billion.
Prudential is a solid, solvent company. Think about this when you hear the far right wing screaming and wetting undergarments about unfunded liabilities. Yes, in 70 years total social security payouts will be huge, but so will total SS contributions.
Of course, the simple right wing mind believes whatever they see on Fox, and live a fear gripped existence, tempered by extreme anger at the government that is so careless with tax money. All lies.
All that is needed to fix social security for ever, is removal of the cap.
That was easy!
Maximum yearly Out of Pocket = $6,350. That will eliminate thousands of medical cost related personal bankruptcies. By the way, thanks to Bush, personal bankruptcy doesn't exist anymore. You can have no credit, but your debts remain, no matter what you file in court.
Turns out, the people who 'had healthcare' but went bankrupt anyway, had sham insurance. That sham insurance: high deductible, yearly cap, cancellation while you are sick, patchwork of coverage, is what people had and then went bankrupt.
Sorry, Obamacare offers real health care cost security, at a reasonable price, not cheap worthless insurance.
How did I get pulled in? It's the ACA. The Law of the land. Passed by the House, passed by the Senate, signed by the President, upheld by the Supreme Court. It's the law, not me.
Obama clarifies remarks, shows 100% accuracy in his statements.
No one, not a single person, has had their worthless #$%$ insurance cancelled by the ACA. The insurer may cancel the policy. They are being cancelled as they are not competitive with real insurance.
Once the ripoff insurance has been dropped or cancelled by the insurance company, the ACA prevents sham insurance plans. Only quality, good coverage plans can be offered.
Now, does the GOP want the Government to tell private, for profit insurance companies they must keep offering junk insurance? That sounds like communism to me. That is what the GOP wants.
They want Congress to be signing up for non-employer plans.
Employer based plans don't have to change under Obamacare. Congress is such an entity.
I don't get why this is so baffling to the GOP.
Not a bit of it! Each day, as the web site fixes arrive, it gets better. People are signing up.
It's the GOP that is in full tilt panic.
Not to worry, we'll be back to Benghazi soon.
Tempest in a Tea Pot.
In reality, nobody wants worthless, high priced, high deductible, sham insurance policies.
It's only an issue to racists Obama haters.
Turns out, if your plan was unchanged from before the ACA was passed you can keep it intact absolutely. The problem is insurance companies are constantly changing those worthless, flimsy coverage plans. Once a change is made, the grandfather clauses and Obama's true statement no longer apply: it's a new plan and must conform to the ACA minimum standards. That's the law. It's there to protect you, like wearing a seat belt.
What that means is that everyone could retain their plans so long as no alteration was made to those plans by their providers. However, the very minute a provider made a tweak to those plans, they lost the grandfather protection, and compliance with the Affordable Care Act's new standards became necessary.
Simple English is simply baffling to the Tea Party. Get someone fairly smart to explain this to you.
