maybe im wrong, but werent those plans canceled cuz they were so awful and pointlessly expensive? didnt the insurance companies have 3 years to make their plans up to par? so wouldnt it be the fault of the insurance companies that those people are losing insurance?
Some of them were, there were some substandard plans as well as plans that should have long been discontinued.
It is the insurance companies, they caught one of them jacking up prices under the guise to out price their competitors. They did this because they figured the first people to sign up would be the sick and higher prices would deter these sick people from signing up with them. They basically were trying to push sick people off on the competition.
That's just one of the schemes they had time to concoct. There are quite a few others.
People getting too wrapped up in politics. The damn law isn't even in full effect and won't be for at least another month. Effectiveness of the law won't be able to be quantified until at least 2016-2017 after the entire law has been in effect more than a year.
