There were just stories last week where the 8 million supposedly signed up ofor BO Care is actually much much much lower. SOrry, but I don't by this tripe for one second.

Mr Peter File, For some strange reason my memory of current events is always hazier than that of the past. I do not remember any warning about insurance companies dropping policies. But I do remember the warnings about the euro. And everyone debating the pros and cons for a long time. Eventually most of Europe decided the pros outweighed the cons and adopted the currency. However notable holdouts like the United Kingdom did not, because they decided the cons outweighed the pros.

Kree Health insurance companies changing their policies so that they could increase their profits was just a unforeseen action
Pretty sure there was a lot of people who predicted it, was saying it would make sense to a business and were told they're wrong when they were campaigning against it... Just because the senior leadership ignored it doesn`t mean people didn`t predict it.
It`s like when the Brit`s pointed out all the problems with the Euro along lines of, while the going is good it will be ok-ish, but when the going get`s bad you`re going to be locked inside a burning house. People now saying they didn`t predict the problems of the Euro, Bullpoo, the federalists ignored the warnings of others, in the French quest to create a European super power to oppose the yanks, including an alternative base currency

MeGrendel, that is incorrect. People could keep their original healthcare policies. The insurance companies made adjustments to the policies. The policies were now different policies. These new policies did not meet the minimum requirements and could not be offered to customers.
While, Obamas statement was incorrect in practice, it was correct in fact. Health insurance companies changing their policies so that they could increase their profits was just a unforeseen action. Although in retrospect it should have been anticipated. There really should be more people reviewing laws before they get voted on, to make sure the wording matches the intent. Or more importantly, that the law can't be completely twisted around for some horrible purpose or another.

Clearly we should scrap Obamacare for the GOP version which is..................Oh yea they don't have a solution. That`s just lying-ass Democrat propaganda. Republicans have proposed a number of solutions including tax-free medical savings accounts, buying insurance across state lines, and malpractice tort reform. You may not agree with these proposals, but to say that the Republicans have offered no solutions is just a big fat Democrat lie.
