Where are all of the people that insisted that it won't change things for those that already have insurance?
Everything that is happening now was easily predicted back when the law was being discussed and formed, even before it was passed. Just like most things with this administration, I was hoping to be wrong, but I'm not.

Losing the Grandfather safety net is a big part of the reason for cancellations.
The story that came out in 2010:
The Department of Health and Human Services released preliminary regulations in June. They state that plans would lose their grandfathered status if coinsurance and copayments increase more than a specified amount, for example. According to HHS estimates:
_ 40 percent to 67 percent of individual policies will lose grandfathered status by 2011;
_ 34 percent to 64 percent of large employer group plans (100 or more employees) will lose their grandfathered status by 2013: and _ 49 percent to 80 percent of small employer group plans (three to 99 employees) will lose their grandfathered status by 2013.

And folks thought I was nuts by hoping the republicans would hold out, but also knowing what would happen if they did. And by the time the battle for the budget comes around, I think more will more than willing to support the republicans in some way to defund or whatever needs to be done concerning the obamacare bullshit. ...
..."President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it...." NBC News
He didn't lie, he expressed his opinion in a manner, which is inconsistent with current mainstream understanding.
