"Bad apple" insurers have canceled health care policies and President Obama is upset about it. That is the claim from the White House as thousands of Americans have begun to lose coverage recently. According to a report from late Wednesday (Oct. 30), it is those insurance companies that he is blaming and not the new health care law that he has helped to put in place.
The president has had to address a lot of harsh criticism about the plan recently, especially because the web site to get people signed up for new plans has not worked well. This has just fueled the fire that the other side of the aisle is stoking, especially as so many Americans get left without health care or a remedy for getting dropped by their original policy carriers.
Weighing in on the situation and all the canceled policies, President Obama stated, "Just shop around in the new marketplace. You're going to get a better deal. Remember, before the Affordable Care Act, these bad-apple insurers had free rein every single year to limit the care that you received, or used minor pre-existing conditions to jack up your premiums, or bill you into bankruptcy."
He has coined a new term in regard to the companies and it has become quite buzzworthy on the internet. With so many people becoming disappointed or disheartened by what the Affordable Care Act is doing, President Obama has seen his popularity numbers drop even further. It is the same for his approval ratings, so he really needs to make sure the health care reform gets done.
