Health plans began discontinuing coverage for some of the 12 million Americans who buy individual policies on the private market that don't meet Obamacare requirements for more comprehensive care. It seems to me it should be the multi-million dollar health insurance industry that should be doing the apologizing. The ones that denied care because it effected their bottom-line, the ones that kicked people off of health plans when they got sick, the ones that refused to insurance children with pre-exiting conditions, the ones that under-insured people, so they had to go into financial ruin and declare bankruptcy to pay for medical bills that weren't covered by insurance. They should be the ones apologizing to the American people!! Why should President Obama apologize because these assholes cancelling individual policy holders.

But you'll trust these "unelected" insurance company CEOs with your healthcare decisions? Why don't you ask them why your premiums are so high?
