    ‘Then there’s arm, leg, private parts,,’
    “That’s what the plan covers?’
    ‘Ah, no …’

    I guess instead of Goldschlager, I’ll have to cut back to Copperschlager…

    Yup. I lose mine at the start of the year. The one I can get has 200% of the deductible of the current one.

    The vast, vast majority of “cancelled policies” are the choice of the insurance company, which is hoping to get the ACA repealed so they can resume profiteering.

    They have also been caught trying to trick people into signing up for more expensive policies before the cutoff date. There may be some legal action coming to let people out of these deceptive contracts, but don’t count on it.

    My silver policy will cost about $270 a month, which is a fraction of what the thieves wanted for a catastrophic coverage four years ago. I’ve gone with no coverage since and have put off a lot of things that I needed.

    Please Antiquetracman, there are a lot of variations on this theme and we shouldn’t generalize. There’s no question but that President Obama mis-spoke when he said “if you like your plan you can keep it” but many people who had substandard plans were perfectly happy simply because they hadn’t encountered the limitations yet. I’ve worked with AIDS patients whose policies had a lifetime cap of $100K, which didn’t last long with repeated hospitalization. Treating women with HIV, the first opportunistic infection was vaginal cadidiasis, but that’s endemic, and the insurers called it a pre-existing condition and refused to pay for treatment. In spite of these and related abuses, people were happy with their policies until they encountered problems, and so they are legitimately upset when they are asked to pay for policies that provide fair coverage. As for the free ride — we were paying for the poorest people anyway, just less efficiently. I do wish there were more opportunities to discuss the problems of healthcare financing than in the comments of a comic strip. Maybe Brewster can resolve this — he has a nice, simple mind.

    I’m almost afraid to ask but what is a “KWINK”?

    Can a teleprompter mispeak? 29 times on video? Period? There was no mispeak. Its was all lies to win an election. But, hey, you just keep that HopenChange alive.

    Considering the rest of his igno-rant, probably something teafarty.
