    Yep, take away millions of people’s health insurance because that will ensure your popularity.

    Another procedural kink the PPACA Law is working and the fallout from the American people will be heard when people get thrown off healthcare.

    Obama made Millions of people GET kicked off of their already liked healthcare. (Remember hearing if you liked your plan you can keep your plan?) A lot of them had no choice but to go to Obamacare. So, no real gain there. In the meantime tens of millions of people that it was SUPPOSED to help…are still without healthcare.

    @PianoGuy, Thjose plans did not meet a reasonable minimum standarsd, Who knew your corporate healthcare masters would provide crappy service?

    Millions were NOT kicked off but millios who were totally without healthcare are now served. Millions of dollars wasted in emergency room care are NOT being wasted.

    The table of contents on the PPACA looks really good. The actual contents of the PPACA – not so much.

    Roberts is the one who upheld the ACA by calling it a tax. Now he’s supposed to be the one cutting it, hardly.

    The penalties on the irresponsibly uninsured need to kick in but the Democrats keep extending the grace period. This defeats the purpose of the law.

    Except those preexisting plans were grandfathered in. Insurance companies weren’t forced to cancel those plans, they chose to.

    The Republicans will rue the day they get their wish.

    “Those plans did not meet a reasonable minimum standard,” The minimum standard should be what meets your standard not the government’s standard. I corrected your typo’s, you’re welcome.

    When the activist judges know their appointment is essentially for life, why serve the needs and interests of the people instead of your party?
    .
    Just like the ruling on the individual mandate, this decision will be a political calculation by the CONservatives on the bench. Of course the chumming around by scalia and thomas with the kochs won’t have anything to do with the ruling, nope none at all. {snerk}

    I’m starting to realize that the lie of the century was not “If you like your plan you can keep it” but instead all the foam and fervor of the right-wing CONS, not even CONservatives, just CONS as in con-men who are still lying about it. It was NOT the PPACA that forced the insurance companies to cancel all of those plans, it was the sole choice of the insurance companies themselves.
    Let’s look at some of the plans that got cancelled.
    One woman found that when she broke her arm, her premiums for the year were in excess of the maximum benefit of her plan, not just for the broken arm, but in total. Read that again, her total premium was in excess of her maximum benefit for the year.
    Or the plan that was written where it was non-renewable, the plan ceased after one year. However the plan was written in such a way that the customer was automatically re-enrolled in a 100% new plan so they thought their coverage was ongoing. So when they had a medical condition in month 11, in what they thought was the first month of the new year of the same plan, it was actually month one of a new plan. Same agent, same company, pre-existing condition, NO COVERAGE!!!!!!!!! Now wasn’t that convenient?
    These are just two examples of plans that were cheap so people liked them, until of course they found out what a scam they really were. These were NOT health insurance plans, they were insurance company profit with no expense plans.
    THESE were the types of “insurance” that was supposed to be killed off and real plans, regardless of how little coverage or how high deductibles were still allowed, as long as they really provided insurance. But the insurance companies used the PPACA as a scapegoat to cancel less profitable plans and screw the consumer even harder.
    .
    So please give up the lie. Those of us honest enough to seek, research and find the truth know what a lie this is. But it’s convenient for the partisan meme so the lie lives strong.

    It was a calculated partisan maneuver. And given the successes of the republiCONs in CONgress, I’d say (IN)Justice Robert’s calculations worked out pretty well for his party.

    @ODon

    That’s why they are FINALLY trying to come up with a “replace” provision. Except what is being reported is all the wrong stuff that will ensure it is a failure. Typical right-wing nonsense.

    To late. The Gruber LIE may come to an end. Then the pain to our economy might start to heal.
