    Our ruling

    Jarrett said it was a "fact" that "nothing in Obamacare forces people out of their health plans."

    Saying there’s "nothing" in the law that forces people out of their health plans is a pretty extreme claim -- one that implies that insurers who pull the plug on non-Obamacare-compliant plans are acting in some sort of government-free vacuum. Even if it’s technically true that the insurer pulls the plug on a plan, the insurer will only be doing this because the law itself and its implementing regulations have created a context in which, sooner or later, old-fashioned plans will inevitably pass into oblivion -- as the law always intended. We rate the statement False.

    Losing a plan is not the same as losing coverage

    Depends on your definition of coverage. Most media outlets( CBS, ABC, NBC ) are equating "lose your plan" with "losing coverage".

    Do you think the story is a lie? The woman gave her name and the city where she lives so its easy to enough to track her down. When you do you can tell her what a great thing Obamacare is and that she must be mistaken, that Barrack Obama himself promised it would she would be looked after.

    There is no hope.

    Forget it...Not worth the points.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I think it's only half the story

    And Obama didn't force any insurer to cover her doctors, or force her doctors to refuse to accept her coverage
