Americans are losing their insurance because of Obamacare

Americans are losing the insurance they wanted to keep and are being forced to pay more for less as a result of Obamacare.

In the meantime, the White House site still makes the claim "If you like your plan you can keep it and you don't have to change a thing due to the health care law." This turned out to be a big lie by the Obama administration.

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to the president, tweeted, "FACT: Nothing in Obamacare forces people out of their health plans. No change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans." This is just another fairy tale.

NBC News' website ran a story saying that the Obama administration knew three years in advance that there would be millions who would not be permitted to keep their insurance.

Millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare. It now has been estimated 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a "cancellation" letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don't meet the standards mandated by the new health care law.

The only solution out of this mess called Obamacare is to totally repeal it and throw it out as one of the worst laws passed in the past half century. Obamacare is not for America.
