ObamaCare forcing new wave of health insurance cancellations right before election

More bad news for Democrats this election. Jim Angle of Fox News reports:

 More than a dozen states plan to cancel health care policies not in compliance with ObamaCare in the coming weeks, affecting thousands of people just before the midterm elections.

"It looks like several hundred thousand people across the country will receive notices in the coming days and weeks," said Jim Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

The policies are being canceled because states that initially granted a reprieve at the request of President Obama are no longer willing to do so.

In coming weeks, 13 states and the District of Columbia plan to cancel such policies, which generally fall out of compliance with the Affordable Care Act because they don’t offer the level of coverage the law requires.

Virginia will be hardest hit, with 250,000 policies expected to be canceled.

In Virginia, incumbent Democrat Sen. Mark Warner hoods such a commanding lead over Republican Ed Gillespie, 51 to 39, that even this bad news seems unlikely to oust him.  Even though, according to a Watson Center Poll:

• Voters say the economy and health care are the top issues, followed by the budgetDescription: http://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/icon1.png deficit and immigration and border security.

If the new wave of cancellations receives national publicity, however, it could affect Democrat incumbents who voted for Obamacare, and reopen that wound. In many close races, every vote counts.
