Insurance companies aren't sending out cancellation letters, they're helping people "transition" into Obamacare, according to a top Democrat.

"If [the companies] changed [the insurance plans] then they have to notify the people who have to have the opportunity to have another policy," said House Ways and Means Committee ranking member Sander Levin, D-Mich.

In fact, according to Levin, the "so-called cancellation notices" merely "help people transition to a new policy."

Levin cited comments made by Florida Blue CEO Patrick Geraghty, the insurance company executive who originally floated the "transitioning" talking point on Sunday's Meet the Press.

Yup.  To policies we don't want, would not buy if we weren't forced to buy them, wouldn't be offered to us if the insurance companies weren't forced to offer them, and with higher premiums, higher deductibles, and fewer benefits, including a lot fewer doctors - as reported in the NY Post:
A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan.  Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become ObamaCare providers.  Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges.

Right... Congressman Levin. Every man I know need maternity and abortion coverage (not)....  and I'm sure every woman needs a vasectomy. /s

Only a freaking Democrat is so stupid as to design a system where both sexes of all ages have to take a one-size-fits-all insurance policy and, in addition, pay for pre-existing coverage for someone else.

And the sinking of American ships by Germany prior to WWII was just a transition to world war.  No big deal. :3:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
