    Besides that, the link is to the "Kaiser foundation." Like we are supposed to believe that they are "non partisan." How do they even get to have a non-profit in whic their company can benefit from their supposed non partisan studies? Give me a break, its like taking climate change "data" from Oil companies

    Kaiser was just giving the insurers getting out. BCBS said why...what reason why they were leaving. It said so right there is SD's OP article.

    Uncertainty and Trump's threat he was not going to subsidize ACA.

    Trump still has not learned his BIG Mouth has consequences. Moron.
    Thanks from MaryAnne

    The courts have ruled that the payments are illegal, are you encouraging the President to break the law?

    doesn't matter, the right won't hear and acknowledge the facts. THey want ACA to be bad, because that is what they were told to believe. And of course, its never a republicans fault

    There were insurers pulling out of the market before Donald J Trump won the presidency. What was their reason?

    Money. Insurers are profit driven which makes the ACA a crazy idea if you don't like them basing health on profit. Crazier to defend it.

    Georgia is rethinking their fucking stupid refusal to accept medicaid expansion.

    They probably saw the republicans were taking over and knew they were going to fuck everything up.

    Blue Cross pulls back on Georgia coverage

    Citing federal uncertainty, Blue Cross Blue Shield will not offer individual health insurance coverage in metro Atlanta in 2018, the company said Monday. And it came perilously close to withdrawing entirely from Georgia’s individual market, documents show, but decided to stay in the state after intense negotiations.
    In 96 of the state’s 159 counties, Blue Cross is currently the only company keeping the Obamacare health insurance exchange market alive. It currently covers the entire state but is about to pull back, leaving the Georgia exchange with a patchwork of companies that blankets the state.

    That doesn’t help Marc Morton, a Cobb County resident whose wife and daughter have pre-existing conditions and get their insurance from Blue Cross on the exchange. “My wife was in panic,” he said. “I looked at it and I thought, well this is just something that has to be overcome somehow.”

    Blue Cross was clear about its reasons.
    Remove that federal uncertainty and maybe they would not be pulling out.
    Thanks from HayJenn
