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.
No I am talking about the grandfathered plans. It is my understanding that all health insurance plans were grandfathered in. As you pointed out above if the insurance companies made any changes they lost that status. The minimum standard plans I believe are for any plan sold 2012 or 2013, could be wrong on that.
