Okay, the part you are missing is they were FORCED to change their plans to comply with the Obamacare laws. Obamacare says your plan now must cover X,Y and Z. If your current plan didn't provide things like maternity coverage then they were forced to change.
I am not disagreeing it's a boon for insurance companies but I really don't give a ****. The problem is the impact it is having on the individual. Most individual policy holders will not receive subsidies ...that is a myth that they will.
So you are off base on your thinking. They didn't use Obamacare as an excuse to change.....there were forced to eliminate plans because they didn't meet the Obamacare criteria.
In other words, Dirk, the Democrats know what's best for you better than you do.
