  •  These are annual policies (3+ / 0-)

    with no guarantee of renewal -- so the 2011 and 2012 issuances were totally done "while knowing that they'd be unable to extend them." I'm sure the companies didn't tell their policy-holders that, which would have meant admitting that the coverage wasn't up to ACA standards, but they knew. Many of those same companies are selling policies through the exchanges, so they knew full well what the ACA required. Or maybe they were banking on either the Supreme Court or the House GOP gutting the law.

    I have no sympathy at all for the companies. I have some sympathy for the people who actually do have decent coverage now, and who have checked out the exchange and KNOW that they would pay more for less coverage. I'm guessing that's a tiny minority of the millions who are being used as an excuse to repeal the law entirely.
