    Well there goes about 40% of the people Barry said will get a delay before his big lie becomes reality.
    Btw……sadly the 25 million who are being cancelled are just the tip of the iceberg.
    Wait until next year when companies start notifying ove 170 Million employees that they can’t keep their health insurance.
    You think that 10% increase this year hurts! next year you will be lucky if it’s not double.
    Hope y’all have an extra 4-6 hundred bucks to blow each month!

    Well that’s a misleading illustration. If his plan covered everything like the drawing shows, than the insurance company is arbitrarily canceling his policy.

    His plan is covering everything HE NEEDS covered, as opposed to Obama’s plan which covers his arms a little more, and maybe his mind. And don’t forget it also covers his ovaries.

    Insurance companies aren’t arbitrarily canceling policies. They are required by law to drop policies that do not carry those things that the PPACA requires. It is also why insurance companies have raised rates on individual policies on some individuals. In some states companies are no longer issuing individual policies. It’s just some of the pass it then read it things that are coming back to bite people.

    “Haven’t you noticed?Obama and all the other usual Democrat suspects have stopped calling it Obamacare and started calling it the Affordable Care Act.”

    Probably because Affordable Care Act is its real name.

    His plan was canceled because it covered about as much as a butt-floss bikini. Thank you very much, Lisa, for not depicting his gown according to how little his plan actually covered. It wouldn’t have been pretty.

    I know that you libs will cry and foam at the mouth saying things like he isn’t American for paying for others because they have pre-existing conditions or that somehow males need abortion and birth coverage.

    What’s funny, is that you think insurance companies issue “abortion and birth coverage” to men.

    If your son’s gamble on going without insurance goes wrong, who would pay for it?

    “Probably because Affordable Care Act is its real name.”

    Actually, Jase, that isn’t quite right either. It’s

    “Public Law 111–148 111th Congress
    An Act Entitled The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”

    SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE; TABLE OF CONTENTS.
    (a) SHORT TITLE.—This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’’.

    The toon has it backward. If his plan is cancelled, it’s because it covered too little. The new plans require a lot more coverage.

    Early on, Michael, I tried using “Affordable Care Act” at the Government Printing Office site and that site did not recognize that as the name. I understand the ellipsis of the act and its acceptability in normal usage. I use it myself in normal conversation. I also use it in normal searches for information on the internet; however, what I posted was copied and pasted from the act itself. The “real name”. Call it the proper name if you like.

    A $12,000 deductible? Are you serious? That’s a combination of a joke and an outrage. Gosh, my deductible here in Ontario is exactly $0.00.

    At a state level, California really does lead the nation in idiotic decisions by its politicians.

    The concept is very strange to a Canadian. I know about deductibles because the insurance we have for our dog has a $50.00 deductible. That is, the first $50.00 we have to pay ourselves, then the insurance kicks in. So if church is right, then the “bronze” plan he’s talking about would require the insured person to pay the first $12,000, and only after that would the insurance kick in. As I said, a combination of a joke and an outrage.

    It’s called a “deduction without representation”. Americans love it.

    If a person with a “bronze” plan goes to the hospital but can’t afford the $12,000 deductible, who’s going to pay for that?

    First off, where do you get a $12,000 deductible? Most Bronze plans have about a $3,000 deductible & a $6,250 cap on out of pocket costs.

    If Debt Free’s son, World B., falls off his skateboard & breaks his arm, the bill could easily hit $20,000.

    Whatever is unpaid, is paid by higher costs hospital costs. We both know there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.

    Whether Debt takes my words at face value or not, I sincerely hope his son is fine during his insurance gap. My issue is that our health care system clearly has serious problems that need to be fixed. If nothing else, Obamacare is shaking up the industry.
