From the article that you apparently failed to read:

Quote:
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
80 from 100 = 20%. Should I have said, 20-25%?

The reason I say this is right now CNN had a woman on talking about how much her premiums went up and she never even registered.
Like I said nice try.

We don't qualify for squat. Maybe if we get a divorce we would.

So, 50-80% of 14 million on individual plans get a cancellation notice. Of that 7-11 million, "many" will pay more. You took the maximum number of an estimated range and assumed "all" from "many". And, maybe I missed your link?

That link actually says the normal turnover in any given year for individual plans is 40-67% anyway...

yeah because 80 percent of the people were perfectly fine with getting f***** by the insurance companies. So anyways how many people here on the board have received cancel lation letters their insurance premiums?

Wait, that's not the point. The President lied to the American People. Typical of the left, now you're basically saying, "so what it's for a good cause?" That seems typical. Is this where we bring Bush into the convo?

Dude, WTF are you talking about? I'm challenging the numbers supplied as a counterargument to my post. And, I'm also challenging the premise of your argument since as the link this thread is based on says 40-67% of individual plans are cancelled EVERY year regardless of Obamacare.

People seem to be saying that since the insurance industry cancels 40-67% of individual plans EVERY year, Obama is lying by saying "Obamacare doesn't prevent you from keeping your old plan".
