If you like your health-care plan, youll be able to keep your health-care plan, period, President Barack Obama told the American Medical Association in July 2009. No one will take it away, no matter what.
Those promises now have tens of thousands of Alabamians, including some who supported the presidents plan, asking what went wrong.
USA Today says about 80,000 Alabamians will have their health insurance policies canceled, while the Associated Press pegs the figure at closer to 90,000. The one certainty is that people statewide will be scrambling for new health coverage at significantly higher rates as cancellation letters arrive in mailboxes and most will be paying more before promised government subsidies.
According to the newspaper article, Alabamas limited insurance company participation Blue Cross Blue Shield and Humana is partially to blame for the increased premiums.

You trusted them.
( he cried) and the front rank died
thats a bold thing to say
The president sat, and the lines on the map moved from side to side?
The next 6 months will be interesting.
like in from one nostril to another yeah huh
deep red state. as far as Obama is concerned, they can all literally drop dead.
Obama, with the state-controlled media will simply blame it on the evil capitalist insurance companies.
I’ve already heard Obama out there whining about “bad apple” insurance companies.
I wouldn’t get too excited about him taking the blame for his own mess, yet.
Bold, or honest?
If CNN hasn't reported a mess why would he even ever know there was one
in all honesty it was a bit of a pun
The cancelling of policies has been going on all year, these are just the public ones. Wife’s policy was cancelled this last spring. The policy was replaced with a more costly one with less coverage, and that was to fit obmakare. My brother’s will be cancelled and he will be dropped, period. That notification came months ago.
26.5% of Alabama are "Holder's/Obama's people".
I wonder if these socialist Commies sleep well at night. There’s got to be something we can do
Small price to pay. you can’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs.
Yes, they do.
