Told You So: 300,000 Floridians Losing Coverage

Last year at town hall meetings when I warned of the dangers of Obamacare and Floridians losing their coverage, liberal progressives called me an “extremist.”

Hate to say “I told you so,” but I hope y’all are happy with the results you’re getting from the Liar-in-Chief.

One of the largest insurance carriers in the state, Florida Blue, formerly known as Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida, just announced around 300,000 Floridians will get dumped off their insurance plans because those plans don’t comply with Obamacare – that’s 80 percent of its current individual policies. So much for “if you like your plan you can keep it.”

As of January 1, Obamacare requires all plans include “essential health benefits” like doctor visits, emergency and hospital services, maternity and newborn care; mental health and substance abuse treatment; prescription drugs; rehabilitation and devices that the therapy requires; prevention; chronic disease management; laboratory work; and pediatric services (including oral and vision care).

And it’s not just limited to Florida – policyholders across the nation are being dumped and are getting angry that they’re forced to buy plans that offer more coverage than they need. So much for your liberty and freedom.

Yep, the truth is pretty extreme. Unfortunately, here in America, as Thomas Sowell said, we have replaced what worked with what sounded good. I don’t think being told you’ve been dropped from your health insurance plan sounds good. Elections have consequences and folks are now experiencing them first hand.
