Fifty-four percent of Californians expect to lose their coverage, according to an August poll.


I hope that this 54% is part of the 61% of stupid Californians who voted for Obama and his "you can keep your health plan" lies......
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

It's a 20% gain toward the single payer plan, that's all.  The communists will have to work that much less. :smokin:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Yeah, they are......................and did you hear that surfer dude being interviewed, saying he'll never work and will just surf on the taxpayer's dime, just because he can.

Obama has created a welfare mess we'll never climb out of.

Obama is trying to switch this country from Private industry handling our insurance needs to the government and then they can fully control every single aspect of our lives.... everything!  People are STUPID to think this is a good thing.

No mention of West Virginia, where only ONE insurer remains in the healthcare exchange?

Highmark to be alone on W.Va. exchange
September 12, 2013 12:21 am
By Bill Toland / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


It happened again this week, this time in West Virginia. A major for-profit health insurer, Coventry in this case, pulled out of that state's nascent health care marketplace, meaning Pittsburgh-based Highmark Inc.'s West Virginia branch will be the only insurer selling subsidized health policies on the exchange when it opens for business Oct. 1.

West Virginia's Coventry pullout was the latest in a series of similar announcements.

In the spring, UnitedHealth Group said it would offer plans in only a dozen state exchanges; previously it had said it would sell policies on as many as 25 exchanges. Cigna is offering plans in just five states, according to Kaiser Health News. Aetna has pulled out of at least five exchanges, after having originally proposed plans in 14 states, according to Kaiser.

The exchanges, a principal feature of the 2010 health care overhaul known as the Affordable Care Act, are meant to be online marketplaces where the uninsured can shop for a variety of policies from a variety of insurers. And while that will be the case in some states -- Pennsylvania, for example -- in others, the Blue Cross Blue Shield insurers are the only game in town.  ...
