Obama’s health law finally gets real for America – Yahoo Finance
By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
WASHINGTON AP — Now is when Americans start figuring out that President Barack Obama’s health care law goes beyond political talk, and really does affect them and people they know. With a cranky federal website complicating access to new coverage and some consumers being notified their existing plans are going away, the potential for winners and losers is creating anxiety and confusion.
… The Obama administration insists nobody will lose coverage as a result of cancellation notices going out to millions of people. At least 3.5 million Americans have been issued cancellations, but the exact number is unclear. Associated Press checks find that data is unavailable in a half the states.
Mainly they are people who buy directly from an insurer, instead of having workplace coverage. Officials say these consumers aren’t getting “canceled” but “transitioned” or “migrated” to better plans because their current coverage doesn’t meet minimum standards. They won’t have to go uninsured, and some could save a lot if they qualify for the law’s tax credits.

“Now is when Americans start figuring out that President Barack Obama’s health care law goes beyond political talk, and really does affect them and people they know.”….. NOW!? The GOP has been WARNING them for YEARS!!!! If only the mainstream news media would have reported this mess objectively MILLIONS of Americans wouldn’t be in this mess! Even in this very article, the AP continues covering for the ACA’s downfalls. “They’ll be migrated to better plans” better plans that cost them MORE. The news media has demolished any integrity it had left and destroyed its own profession, good riddance, the news has become the place I go to see what’s not true, great job you sellouts. The mainstream news seems to be feeding us propaganda, covering for the President’s failures day after day, misleading the public into voting for their own downfall. Don’t believe me? This article is full of examples. Consumers losing their plans “… aren’t getting canceled but transitioned or migrated to better plans” Really? How about mentioning they are MORE expensive plans? What about the fact that they CHOSE their previous plans, now someone else is FORCING another on them. And STOP with this whole affordable SPIN, “many will qualify for subsidies making it affordable.” Well how about those whose new OBAMA APPROVED plan will cost them more and make more than $45k for an individual, $65k for a couple and $94k for a family of four? Their new plans will cost them more and they will get NO SUBSIDIES. Wealth Redistribution hits the middle class, this is what the GOP warned you about when Democrats pretended they’d stop at the rich.
