    Millions of Americans are getting letters from their insurance providers informing them that their present plan is being cancelled because it cannot be offered any longer due to the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

    For many of these people, this has been a shocking event because they were confidently assured by their President that this would not happen.

    But it is happening. And people are demanding answers as to how it came to this.

    The answer is simple. And infuriating. It came to this because the biggest hurdle to ObamaCare's passing was the fact that most people who already had health insurance were happy with what they had. And keeping these people from realizing what the new law was going to do became a key part of the Democratic Party's strategy.

    They're losing their healthcare from their employers because their employers are greedy and choose to cut off their employees. That decision has nothing to do with the President.

    You might want to go research this and inform yourself. Even labor unions are complaining about this.

    Breitbart is off the radar if they think that the Democrats would ever apologize for anything that they did wrong and Obama could care less about any harm that he had done to anyone. Leftists are heartless and Democrats are on a power drive. Look at that Mormon Harry Reid and that communion-denied Catholic Nancy Pelosi and tell me how the Democrats would ever even have remorse for what they have done.

    A communion denied Catholic, interesting concept. Since communion in the Catholic church is meaningless, so is the evil that pretend to act against. How does evil enforce standards of righteousness?

    It has everything to do with the president.
    True, greed plays a role.

    Our president has proven that because (in his mind) we have not sufficiently shared our abundance (in his eyes) with our fellow citizens less fortunate than ourselves - both domestic and foreign - he has taken it upon himself to force the issue.

    Remember what he said to Joe the Plumber about redistributing the wealth?

    Don't get me wrong, I can't/won't couldn't/wouldn't vote for anyone who is pro-choice.

    You obviously know zilch about the cost to employers to provide health care insurance to their employees, or what this abortion of a "health care program" does to overall health care costs. The most laughable thing about this legislation is that it was call the "Patient Protection and Affordable" Care Act. It protects nothing but the Great Pretender's reputation -- and the tarnish on that is already building up -- and it most assuredly is not affordable.

    The ACA requires pre-existing condition coverage, which you can get as the insured now, with most companies, but you will pay a lot more, because it is already a known fact you are a health risk with a pre-existing condition. You will have medical expenses the company will have to pay for on your behalf, and they need to balance out those payouts on the front end with higher premiums. Otherwise, they would go broke charging everyone the same thing. It is both sad and laughable the Great Pretender thinks he did such a great thing forcing pre-existing condition coverage on the insurance industry, but what he did was guarantee costs would skyrocket.

    The ACA raises "level of care" standards while eliminating payments for multiple lab tests, without addressing in any way, shape or form the issue of malpractice, which is the real cost problem in U.S. health care today. Without those multiple tests, doctors are going to be unable to develop a thorough overview of any given patient so as to make an accurate diagnosis. While there are some diagnoses that are easy, and don't require multiple tests, others are not so easy. With lawsuit-happy patients, particularly of the type that have not previously had health care and are eagerly awaiting the opportunity for their doctor to make a mistake so they can sue, malpractice filings will soar, most of them just as frivolous as most are now, and malpractice insurance premiums will rise at a rate making the ACA's increased premiums look like chump change. The result will be fewer doctors, fewer hospitals, higher medical costs, and second rate care -- just like Europe.

    But then, that's what the Great Pretender wants, right? For us to be Europe?

    Bottom line, FTW, you ain't got a clue, so you probably shouldn't offer an ignorant opinion.
