300,000 lose health ins, to gain better ins..

Take Me To Post Comment Form


The reason the policies were cancelled-is that the policies fall short of what the Affordable Care Act requires starting Jan. 1. Most are ending policies sold after the law passed in March 2010. At least a few are cancelling plans sold to people with pre-existing medical conditions.

By all accounts, the new policies will offer consumers better coverage, in some cases, for comparable cost -- especially after the inclusion of federal subsidies for those who qualify. The law requires policies sold in the individual market to cover 10 “essential” benefits, such as prescription drugs, mental health treatment and maternity care. In addition, insurers cannot reject people with medical problems or charge them higher prices. The policies must also cap consumers’ annual expenses at levels lower than many plans sold before the new rules.

Great Blog PN. None of this anti-ACA bloviating doesn't amount to squat. There is no way to stop ACA unless it is repealed, and that cannot happen unless the soon to implode GoP attains majorities in BOTH legislative branches. All that is taking place here is a wheelbarrow full of whining frustrated Conservatives. That's IT! They cannot win at the polls. The Republicans have lost the last 5 out of 6 National popular votes. Their majority of Tea Partiers in the house were gerrymandered into office. Americans want compromise not MORE GRIDLOCK.

The argument that should be taking place is what faction of the Republicans is going to win control of the Party: the Moderate Right or the Extreme Right???

funny if it's so great why are all the dems in the senate calling for it to be delayed till after the election? once it kicks in, people will be really upset when they realize the ACA isn't all good. there is more bad stuff in it that will cost everyone in the future. if you are older you really need to read it for yourself. for one you have to carry maternity insurance. it also allows for a board not made up of doctors to decide if medical care is worth spending money on you at your age. or in other words, if you get cancer at 80 years old they can decide it's not worth spending money at that age. and just let you die.

I'll be honest and say...that when and if they get all the kinks and glitches out ACA may turn out to be a bad thing, or a good thing. At this point it seems to have many glitches. So, I do not really know and only time will tell. I do know that end of life care is THE most expensive time for medical care unless one has a catastrophic illness or condition earlier in life. At this point I can only state that both of my adult sons are already covered thru their employment and have not heard of any changes coming that affect them. Me and my wife are retired Federal Employees under BCBS and we haven't seen anything affecting our coverage...yet.

Jimmy, has Ann Colter, Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity ever said anything against anyone like Pitt’s did against the white couple?

Funkentelecky commented on Friday, Oct 18, 2013 at 20:27 PM

Leonard Pitts lacks common sense in regards to race and individual freedom for all Americans. Jimmy, when you find a black person that doesn’t even care that a white couple has been murdered and raped and shows no empathy whatsoever; he or she is a racist and hates white people. Pitts doesn’t tell it like it is he hates white people, and feels an entitlement that it’s ok for blacks to do anything they want to whites because whites enslaved us. “The ends justify the means.”
BTW, don’t cut yourself short because I feel that you and Chief should be in the dialogue too because you have experiences and pertinent information to add to the subject as well. Us brothers don’t own the subject, we just may have a little more experience in regards to dealing with each other (blacks).
