    Obama should have said “If the government doesn’t like your plan you can’t keep it”.
    He could have said that but it would have been wrong. Everybody who has a substandard plan is free to keep it. They would have to pay a fine of course but if it's so important to them to have poor coverage they have that option.

      We have standards of coverage for car insurance. Why not for health insurance? The whole point is, we don't want to carry freeloaders. We can't afford it. Everybody has to pay in for at least a basic amount of coverage.

      Once again, I would prefer universal, single payer, but it's the same, basic idea.

          No, millions are getting cancellation letters, the plans they had are not available at the premiums they were paying.

            At which point, you don't have to carry car insurance. You can't choose not to get sick.

                          Wait a minute. Is that the liberal media making fun of Obama? Isn't that a violation of the Right Wing dogma?

                              So what you are coming up with something people have to buy just because they are alive. It's like a life tax. If people want to pay cash for medical care they should be able to. If people don't want insurance to cover maternity, it shouldnt have to. You don't make standards you let the market decide. If there is a market for plans with no maternity then so be it. Ummmm you know single dudes maybe lol.

                              This plan is simple lets make young people who aren't sick pay 2000 bucks a yr or more to get insurance. Never mind 80% of them won't go to the doctor that yr. Genius.

                                Some of them will go to the ER. In fact, they'll have a higher rate of going to the ER because so many of them don't have fully developed pre-frontal cortices yet and they tend to take bigger risks and make stupider decisions. Genius.

                                Why do you think they pay higher rates for car insurance?
