You have no Idea how many Democrats will jump ship before the beloved Healthcare.gov is up, and running. They are fleeing like scalded dogs. They know Obama is a lame duck, so he can't help them anymore. They owe him nothing, and they never liked him. He is a Chicago thug, and not that bright. Check out how loyal the Democrats are to the President in the House after Christmas when we move into the 2014 campaign cycle. You are in for an education.

While millions of Americans are watching their individual polices get canceled due to ObamaCare regulations, the new health care rules are also having a major impact on college campuses.
For decades, universities and colleges have offered students bare-bones policies. But because of the Affordable Care Act, those policies no longer cut it – and universities are forced to decide whether to offer significantly higher-cost plans or cancel coverage altogether.
The new rules affect a broad swath of American schools, especially the small ones.
At Bowie State University in Maryland, the cost of student health insurance policies went from roughly $100 a year to $1,800 a year.
The cancelled plan offered $5,000 worth of medical coverage to students for just $54 per semester. University administrators said an acceptable replacement under the Affordable Care Act would have cost $900 per semester, a 1,500 percent increase.
Students who need individual coverage are likely to find a better deal for themselves on the Maryland Health Connection insurance exchange, University spokeswoman Cassandra Robinson said.
In the end, the school decided to drop the policy for all of its 5,500 enrollees. Students were notified of the dropped coverage on the school’s website. DIFFICULT FUTURE? THAT DOESN'T BEGIN TO COVER IT.
SPECIFICALLY why are these policies being cancelled?

Or, they can just suck it up and pay more. It's for the greater good of the real poor people. This is the was it is and it's about time. We are changing the way things work.

Or go to the exchange and possibly get better and cheaper insurance.

You know why silly, they don't measure up to Odumbocare, specifically the mental health, maternity, birth control mandate part. It's nice that certain states only have 1 hospital that is participating out of the whole state. It's also nice that 6 in 10 doctors won't accept odumbocare as a form of payment. It's also nice that part of the law is that the insurance companies get federal bailouts if they don't make enough through the atrocity odumbocare.

Substandard? Not really, these people losing their policies CHOSE them specifically for what they NEEDED THEM TO COVER. I don't need maturnity, BC pills nor the mental health coverage, maybe catastrophic hospitalization, but that is also a crap shoot. It isn't and shouldn't be up to our gubmint to make those choices and force us to carry coverage we will never use. Especially since those policies were already providing COVERAGE. Now, how many have a lapse in that coverage and are losing the providers that knew their history, but somehow that is okay because the chosen one said so. Truly, the only idiots here are those of you who continue to parrot the joys of Odumbocare. LOL!!!!

Yeah, no shit. I did write that. The point being, forcing a policy to carry those coverages when someone doesn't want of need them is BS and should NOT consider a policy "substandard". DUH! Obviously it's not about getting access to healthcare for everyone, but rather forcing everyone to cover every aspect of healthcare whether they need it or not.

It's useless - this imbecile is here for the mere pleasure of arguing with anyone that will give it attention.

We've supplied links, factual data, yet this tool keeps on about all the nonsense it's been spewing, with not one supplementing link.

Ignore it - see how it started by saying "What, no libturds"?

it does not like to be ignored.
