Since these healthcare plans don't meet the minimum requirements under Obamacare, requirements that protect the insured, why would anyone want to keep those policies that don't offer those protections? The Republicans would have you believe that people actually want to be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition. I will admit that they could have done this better, but it was made clear over 2 years ago that policies would have to comply with the new law. What did you think that meant? Republicans would also have you believe that the people who got their policies cancelled were left out in the cold. The fact is that they were offered new policies that complies with the law. Some will have to pay more, some, less. All can reject those plans and go with one on the new exchange. Then there is also the fact that financial assistance is available for those who cannot afford it. Come on, folks, cut the crap.
