Policies are changed every single year....deductibles change, formularies change, drug payment stages change. In essence, a person's previous policy no longer exists. You can't exactly keep something that doesn't exist.
My insurance policy is grandfathered. Every year I get a new policy declaration with changes from the previous year. That's the way insurance works.
This year, my insurance company increased my premium by $18 to avoid increasing my deductibles which would have caused cancellation of my policy.(Wouldn't really matter though since my insurance covers all the basics required under the ACA).
If you want to blame someone for the cancellation of grandfathered policies, blame the insurance companies. There was no reason for them to make changes that affected the Grandfathered status of those policies. NONE! Other cancellations are warranted because those policies were sub-standard in the first place.
Hey, check out the polls no one is buying this!

It's sickening to me to see unmarked cars lurking around stalking people. Why is it anyones business if a person wants to get high?
If people want to get high, they're going to do it, they have done.
The whole thing is absurd. They can't touch the big dealers; can't touch the big pharma companies but they'll round up every little guy who just wants to get high. To the cost of billions to the taxpayer, for the police, the jails, the prisons and on and on forever.

Stop being a fool.
Condemn the president and 27 Senators for KNOWINGLY lying to Americans.
This was a Major breech in public trust of the government.
Thanks to Obama and the other Dems for the first time in history of the US more people distrust the government than do.
Given this you are clucking about something insignificant in comparison.
There was no lie. "If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance". That is what the ACA says. Read it and weep.

Unfortunately, the ACA cannot force insurance companies to offer these plans forever. Republicans would be in an uproar!

It isn't like eliminating lifetime benefit caps, offering coverage to dependent children over age 26 and eliminating pre-existing condition exclusions is going to lose them money. The ACA permits insurance companies to increase out-of-pocket costs as long as they don't increase above the rate of medical inflation plus 15 percent.

If you want to blame anyone, blame the greedy insurance companies.

It's ridiculous. We're becoming a police state. However, it has much to do with the private prison industry who need a steady stream of customers that the taxpayers pay for. Why is it okay for a cop to pretend he is a drug dealer and then seize the customers cash and car? Doesn't that make them just as bad as a thief doing a car jacking?
Galt believes that cops care only about their own overtime and pensions and not at all about the prison system...

cops who conduct drug stings are criminals with badges...

Haavuud...

Now we can see how Obammie got in....

"The reasons that I have for wishing to go to Harvard are several. I feel that Harvard can give me a better background and a better liberal education than any other university. I have always wanted to go there, as I have felt that it is not just another college, but is a university with something definite to offer. Then too, I would like to go to the same college as my father. To be a “Harvard man” is an enviable distinction, and one that I sincerely hope I shall attain."

You, just like Flack, have a reading comprehension problem. AFTER serving one year of supervised probation on his CONVICTION, Radel will have the "option" of requesting that the court expunge his record.

Bush flew a F-102 trainer (not an actual "fighter jet") fitted with a side-by-side cockpit to facilitate ease of pilot training. Bush never got in the necessary flight hours to qualify for combat. Merely past time to avoid Viet Nam.
Again you showcase your ignorance.

Bush fulfilled two years of active duty and completed pilot training in June 1970. During that time and in the two years that followed, Bush flew the Convair F-102, an interceptor jet equipped with heat-seeking missiles that could shoot down enemy planes.

Reportedly the F-102 was a difficult bird to fly because it was under powered.

His commanding officers and peers regarded Bush as a competent pilot and enthusiastic Guard member. In March 1970, the Texas Air National Guard issued a press release trumpeting his performance: "Lt. Bush recently became the first Houston pilot to be trained by the 147th [Fighter Group] and to solo in the F-102.

In Bush's evaluation for the period May 1, 1971 through April 30, 1972, then-Colonel Bobby Hodges, his commanding officer, stated, "I have personally observed his participation, and without exception, his performance has been noteworthy."
