Here's the number of people who've lost their coverage due to the ACA.

The GOP has been reiterating 5 million Americans will lose their healthcare coverage thanks to Obamacare, based on a figure of 4.7 million.

Turns out, the actual number is 10,000 in 18 counties. In a nation of 300 million+ and over 3,000 counties.

Of the 4.7 million the GOP has claimed will lose coverage, half can renew their 2013 plans thanks to an adjustment made by the Obama administration, another 1.5 million have access to tax credits and Medicaid, and everybody else will have access to an affordable plan where they live -- except for 10,000 people.

That's not good information for those 10,000 people, and adjustments should be made to provide some options for those people. And all behemoths like the ACA have some collateral damage, but again, something should be done to provide these folks options.

But a plan designed to insure 30 million people over ten years and bend the cost curve of health coverage has a much smaller imprint (about 500 times smaller) than many of the detractors of the ACA.

10,000. Those are the people whose cancellation notices truly left them in the cold under the ACA. 99% otherwise have ample options.

I had a very similar result. However, my plan was a little more than half the price of your old plan, and turned into a higher % rate increase than yours. I also received NO subsidization. Went from 350 a month to 560. Best part is the coverage isn't as good. Thanks, Obama. We're gonna be uninsured now. I'm not paying more for less. I'll pay the tax, and file bankruptcy if we have misfortune healthwise.

Sadly that WAS as civil a response as I could muster to this nonsense. I have little tolerance for people who try to twist words/phrases/etc to an agenda. It's language rape.

You've lost your plan, yes. You are still eligible for coverage that will be comparable, and thanks to the mandate, you are legally compelled to acquire it against a financial penalty if you don't.

LOOK at the word I bolded. Now let's go back to the home eviction example. If I get thrown out of my home I am still ELIGIBLE to buy a different one. That doesn't mean I'm not homeless at the moment.

By not making this clear you are LYING to push your partisan agenda. And that type of nonsense is just one reason that you are a piece of shit.
