When you write "Gaystapo" you undermine whatever comment you wish to promote and allow others to brand all republicans or conservatives as accepting your comments. Don't make it harder than it is.
Glad it worked out for you. Too bad others didn't have a choice to keep their perfectly fine major med plans. I thought Dems liked "choice?" Regardless, once the employer mandate kicks in, you will see tens of millions forced to get a new policy because most of those aren't grandfathered. Regardless, it was/is just plain dumb for the government to create a system that forces people from their existing carrier. Far easier to have set up a single pool for those w/ pre-ex and subsidize those few people rather than disrupt the entire insurance marketplace and increase taxes on a few to pay for "affordable" health insurance. It's like using a sledgehammer to pound in a nail to hang a painting. But that's the government style.
The only way your mother in law could be dropped is if she was in an HMO or Medicare Advantage plan, both of which are not Medicare and regular health insurance. All regular medicare supplements are "guaranteed renewable." They can't be cancelled.
Let's change nickname to what it really is "Obamasurance" not "Obamacare." The law is not about health care. Everyone arguing whether the law is good or bad are missing the point. Whenever the government gets more involved in personal lives, then more of one's personal life is devoted to the government. It is that simple. For one who pays more in taxes to fund other's insurance, it means, that one has less to save for one's future and thus means one will be more dependent on government to provide in old age. For one who is able bodied and takes money from other people via the government to buy insurance, it means that one is more dependent on government benefits. This will limit one's future earnings because of the incentive to stay below certain income levels in order to get subsidies. Systems of this type are bound to reduce growth and limit savings. Both of which are the only way we will come close to getting out of the future liabilities we face.
it is sad to see someone write the way did you do. It appears that someone has stolen your dream and you are lost in the negativities of life. Take a moment to see what opportunities are available here in America and make use of them for yourself. In doing so you will benefit many other people. That is the best way to bring people up rather than tearing people down in the hopes that others will rise. that scenario will never come to pass.

Does anyone realize that the USA is the largest manufacturer in the world. Yes folks we are still bigger than China.

You must have forgotten that MJ essentially became illegal in the 30s so that all the Mexicans could be deported (they were taking the blame for Demo policies that were exacerbating the depression). Wasn't that the reign of FDR? Now you are blaming the Repubs when in fact it was Richard Nixon, who was essentially a democrat (remember price controls, started the EPA, etc.) who made it a Schedule 1 drug. No true republican in the Barry Goldwater fashion would do that.

Mike, just own up to the fact that you (and the John Mauldins of the world) have been writing about the ills of the world for the past few years while we've been making a ton in stocks and you and your clients have lost big in gold and cash. Maybe things will turn around for you but just admit that you've blown it. The problem when people cry wolf too many times is only those who haven't read past posts believe the new ones.
Romney lost because he would not repudiate his health insurance legislation in Massachusetts. So people figured there was no point in voting for him. Had he come out strongly against his health insurance plan he would have won. End of story.
