I"m afraid you don't understand the ACA. Obama promised 'If you have insurance now, you can keep it." Not a single person from that group has lost their insurance, by government action.
Their policies were cancelled by their insurance carriers, what else is new?
Do you advocate Obama having the power to command insurance companies to follow his will?
All policies cancelled were started after the ACA was law, and become subject to the 'decency' measure of policy quality.
It's like buying a car from 1962: no seat belts. New cars have to have seat belts. Get it?
Funny, every single 'victim' trotted out by the GOP has been shown to get better coverage under the ACA.
"We still hate Obama but this is a good deal." said to a navigator after they bought their policy.
That is the conclusion America will come to. By Election Day, Obamacare will be hailed as a great success.
Seems the chief eye witness wasn't within miles. He saw nothing, and made everything up.
CBS and the GOP bought it all.
Hilary and Obama walk away completely untouched.
The insurance companies cancelled all those policies, abolishing the grandfather status. New post-ACA policies are not grandfathered in.
Seems like the insurance companies are at the root of the cancellation dilemma.
Anthem Blue Cross tricked tens of thousands of Calfornia policyholders into giving up health insurance plans from which they could not be dropped and pushing them into policies that Anthem knew would be cancelled, according to two lawsuits filed in Los Angeles. The lawsuits, filed Monday in Superior Court, may signal an emerging customer pushback against the approximately 900,000 cancellations in California alone of individual health insurance policies that will take effect Dec. 31.
So, all the hub-bub about 'Obama lied' ( which of course, he didn't,) is the result of insurance companies 'slamming' policy holders out of their 'Obama Promised to Keep' plans, into non-compliant, non-grandfathered plans destined for cancellation.
I guess Obama is guilty, he should have said: "....now watch carefully as the insurance companies will try to #$%$ at every possible turn..."
Good Luck on 'losing healthcare' as the rallying cry for the party that wants to cancel everyone's insurance.
The carefully glued together GOP: Rich people, religious nuts, paranoid, childlike libertarians, is breaking apart. Each faction wants their own candidate. Each faction is finding the others' candidate unappealing and uninteresting. Each faction doesn't get enough by just having their party win.
This is the reason why so many GOP candidates are getting primary challenges. The Tea Baggers want their person, not someone who nods and then goes does a corporate shill routine.
The Dems will exploit this to the max.
Looks like you don't get outside the bubble often. There is a massive Republican movement to shutdown the Tea Party and return the GOP back to just avarice and greed.
It's dawning on establishment GOP that the Tea Party can't govern, and their 2010 results were a fluke. Further, their idiotic policies could end the GOP for good.
NBC News: If today was a race between Christie and Clinton, exit polls show Christie would not carry his home state. The former secretary of state, senator, and first lady beats Christie, 48 percent to 44 percent.
What a laugh! The corporate GOP boyz want Christie, because he isn't desperately mentally ill, and can be bribed to do whatever corporations want.
Meanwhile the guts of the party: crazy Christians and crazy Tea Baggers want someone with more foam around the mouth: Cruz, Rubio, Paul.
None of these have a whisper of a shadow of a prayer against Hilary Clinton.
Again, I should start charging for my tutoring of you, specifically in separating fact from right wing ideological fiction:
The Associated Press, quoting a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation, reported that suspect Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, said in the note found in the duffel bag he carried into the airport on Friday that he wasn’t targeting a specific TSA employee.
“Black, white, yellow, brown, I don’t discriminate,” the note read, according to a paraphrase by the law enforcement official, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
As reported Friday by NBC News, the suspect was carrying anti-government literature outlining an alleged conspiracy to create a single global government, possibly prepared by a group known as the "New World Order," when he opened fire on workers with the Transportation Safety Administration, killing one and injuring several others.
A source involved in the investigation said Ciancia carried a handwritten note, a "manifesto" in essence explaining the motive behind his assault. A blog post by Mark Potok, an expert on U.S. hate groups with the Southern Poverty Law Center, added new details about the “manifesto,” which he said included references to the Federal Reserve and “fiat currency.”
Sorry, he belongs to the right wing.
In truth, this person is paranoid schizophrenic. People with such affliction feel they are being attacked by the government, their freedoms being curtailed, a vast conspiracy being waged against them.
Curious, these are core components of the Tea Bagger world view.
He had anti-government, anti-one world conspiracy written statements on his person. He called out Homeland Security Chief Napalatano.
Read up before you post.
Now, what political faction views TSA searches as violations of our rights:
A) The NAACP
B) The Democratic Party
C) The Tea Baggers
D) The Whigs
As disgusting and despicable and loathsome a creature as Christie, he is still orders of magnitude a better politician than Cruz, Rubio, Santorum, Jeb Bush, Romney or Rand Paul.
Christie will demolish all of them by the third debate.
Hilary Clinton will demolish Christie in one debate. Hilary simply has decades more experience in national and world affairs than Christie.
New Jersey is a small state, with huge unsolved problems. These problems will remain unsolved in the next 2 years. Christie will have to run against his own dismal record and the stellar achievements of Clinton. That is too much for anyone.
Randy: "Stop picking on me, or I'll quit the Senate right now!" (Pouting with turned over lip). The issue is well proven plagiarism, not in dispute.
Rand Paul believes lifting statements verbatim, from others' work, is fine, so long as you put a footnote in the written text. Paul shows complete ignorance of what plagiarism is.
Act II is coming: Rand Paul's college writings will be searched. If anything is found, it will end his political career.
This is the third flameout this year: Rubio, Cruz, now Rand Paul.
By 2016 the GOP will be polishing up Gohmert as Presidential timber.
Again, you are making up 'facts' cited in your post.
There is no power given anywhere in the ACA to cancel an insurance policy.
You can keep your plan. The ACA hasn't cancelled a single policy, not one. It doesn't have the power. All it can do is keep an insurance company from offering a new plan that is substandard.
The insurance companies are cancelling these plans. I guess that's a detail that messes up the fantasy.
