How could this be true? b.o. told us "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan". Your esteemed leader would never lie would he?
So which is it, can you "keep your plan" or did obamacare outlaw it?

BTW, I thought you were a big union supporter, most unions came out very much against obamacare.

I'm not arguing that point. But if you pay up more in premiums to play 'catchup' for not having previously had insurance.....

Thanks to Obamacare 6 million people lost their health insurance. That's a lot of people who didn't like so-called junk policies.

Again, all you offer is blather unsupported by any facts or specifics.

we are not talking about policies that covered what you think they do. there were scads of-what I call scam policies- that took your money but did not insure what you thought they did. those were unfortunately legal; obama care made them illegal; trump is making them legal again.

So, to protect the people who did not look at what they were buying, the rest of the populace were screwed over. Yeah, that sounds like a good solid reason to create the PPACA and mandate the purchase of a private product.

If we are to continue adding laws to protect the few from their own stupidity, then perhaps we need a series of tests before people are allowed on the road, in the grocery store, and internet....

You are either severely uninformed or intentionally obtuse. Either way, you are the perfect example of what is wrong in this country in that people of your mind set, still vote.

As to policies that YOU call scam, what gives you the right to decide what people can or cannot purchase with their own money? The thing about a Free Market is that people are permitted to voluntarily engage in a financial transaction if both parties agree. But progressives have a problem with that as it takes them out of the loop and does not permit them to control other peoples lives.

So you "know" what people think catastrophic health care plans cover and don't. Oh wait, you don't know but since we are servants to Federal bureaucrats under Obamacare we ought to just pay up when post metapausal women are forced to purchase birth control and pregnancy coverage.

Oh but wait, Obamacare allows lower cost restricted coverage catastrophic health insurance policies for people under 30 or older in cases of hardship. The Obamacare bureaucrats aren't opposed to the idea of catastrophic type health insurance, the problem is letting people decide for themselves when that type of policy is appropriate.

Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber bragged about how Obamacare was engineered to dupe the stupid American public into being forced to buy coverage they would never use but Obamacare supporters stubbornly continue to prove him right. It's one thing to fall victim to a scam like Obamacare it's another to insist the scammers be allowed to continue the fraud using the force of law.

There is nothing "junk" about an insurance policy that let's me keep my house if I get cancer or some other catastrophic medical condition. Such policies are inexpensive and should be used as part of one's own medical needs. If appropriate.

If you prefer a more comprehensive medical insurance, it should be your right to buy one. But it's not your right to make others pay for it.

Do you have any links to support your allegations? I was happy with my catastrophic plan, which is probably what you would call a junk policy. Many people were happy with their plans that were eliminated under Obamacare.
