President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years....

Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

The so-called purpose was to get 16 more millions insured, but it looks like there will be 16 more people uninsured, instead. Only those on Medicaid will come out ahead, and most of them are probably illegals.

  and most of them are probably illegals.

Which is why they removed the function to prove you are eligible to sign up and added the ability to register to vote.

The White House knew all along: Most Americans with individual health insurance plans will get cancellation notices under Obamacare

and remember this administration has placed a cap on how much profit a private insurance company is allowed to make.
