Twitchy readers know that American is not alone. The cancellation notice avalanche is continuing; Rep. Price put that devastating effect of Obamacare into perspective recently. “Sticker shock” keeps growing as premiums double and triple, often for plans with less coverage. Twitter users are reporting that they not only can’t keep their plans; They can’t keep insurance at all now.
But, hey. Forward!
Um, why aren't Republicans running ads w/people holding their cancellation letters saying, "I liked my plan, but I can't keep it?" #easy

Are you listening, GOP? Are you listening, President Obama?
Dear, @BarackObama, something must be broken. I like my plan, but I can't keep my plan? Please download a fix.

Dear @BarackObama, Regence Blue Cross says my plan is cancelled, you say I can keep my plan. Who's right?

Please meet some Americans who want to know the answer to a simple question: They like their plans. Why can’t they keep them, as promised?

@BarackObama You said if I liked my plan I could keep it, but it is no longer available. So was that a lie or didn't you read the bill??

@BarackObama I was promised that if I like my health insurance, I could keep it. Obamacare has made my insurance illegal & I can't keep it.

@InaMaziarcz That is how I feel I like my insurance I work for and it is affordable and good what did I do to have my rates raised

Nothing. You did nothing wrong.
My health insurance offering has decreased to avoid triggering the "cadillac excise tax". What happened to if I like my plan I can keep it?

My family loses our Aetna plan 12/31 & we have a 5yr old with heart issues. I refuse to go to the exchanges. I just want to keep our plan.

Why? Because, liar.
The president lied and insurance plans died. Now Americans are faced with this:
This is Obama’s America. Citizens terrified to go to the mailbox, faced with the very real possibility that they will lose insurance for their families. Punished for providing for their families in the way in which they believe is best. They like their plans. They want to keep them.
