Dropped insurance coverage was no good anyway

Barack ObamaInsuranceMiningAffordable Care Act (Obamacare)Metal and Mineral

These "insurance" plans that are being canceled because of Obamacare are no better than scam insurance policies ("Obama 'sorry' for health insurance cancellations," Nov. 7). As these stories are examined more closely by journalists, we are seeing a pattern of people who were duped into buying policies with no hospitalization or $300 maximums. In effect, freeloader policies that, in the event of catastrophic illness or accident, are costly to everyone.

To argue that these people had their insurance policies taken away is like arguing President Barack Obama cost your 6-year-old his future job in the coal mine by forcing him to go to school.
