    Re: Florida Blue cutting 300K policies

    The OP must be totally false because President Obama personally promised everyone can keep the policies they have. Why does everyone keep lying about Obama? The OP can't be true because Obama promised this would not happen.

    Absolutely true - but I've yet to see a business that can be run more efficiently and effectively by government than by private enterprise.

    True. I'm just saying that they're obviously on the side of normal Americans and so will definitely not take the better plan.

    It's Canada's fault, John. This is what happens when you hire a bunch of Timbit chomping frogs from Montreal to do something.

Clearly, you had a cheap policy that did a reasonable job taking care of normal healthcare needs and it failed to take care of major needs. But, since most people are healthy most of the time, most people were dumb and happy about their situation, until they got really sick and they became very unhappy with their crappy situation after they were dropped and couldn't get health insurance anywhere because of the health insurance company death panels that evaluated their illness and denied them coverage due to their pre-existing condition.

    Clearly that cheap old policy cannot provide the standard of benefits required by Obamacare (which people need whether their short sighted minds realize it now or not), so the policy must be changed to specify new terms that meet the standard, and at a new rate.

    You are guaranteed coverage in the exchange, and that policy will not have a lifetime maximum, and you can't be dropped just because you have or get a serious illness. That's a much better policy.

    How is that a bad thing?
    screw those safe auto plans; good riddance.

    it's nuts that we didn't just extend medicare to cover everybody. i'm still shaking my head over the abject stupidity of not doing that.

    Those of us that can afford to will join medical groups outside the system altogether in a shared expense plan. That's where the best doctors are headed. They want no part of Obamacare.

    It's already happening.

    To be fair, you are aware that Republicans during the shutdown/debt ceiling discussions overwhelmingly in the House passed a motion to remove the Obamacare waiver for Congress, congressional staff, the White House and White House staff, and put them all into the federal exchange and Democrats in the House wanted no part of it and the Democrat Senate refused to even take up the bill?

    Some may look at it as a kind of poison pill amendment but seems the only real poison pills are being doled out to the few in America who haven't been granted a waiver from Obamacare.

    I don't disagree with your suggestion, but wouldn't such a significant change to medicare require States to approve it since they pay a big chunk of the costs too? And wouldn't that have been more open to constitutional challenge than Obamacare proved to be?
