Obamacare update: 50,000 more plan cancellations coming before November midterm elections

State-run media keeps trying to tell me “Obamacare is working.”

Who should I believe, them, or my lyin’ eyes?

Thousands of Americans will see their health plans cancelled before the November elections in a development that could boost critics of ObamaCare.

The Morning Consult, a Washington-based policy publication, reported that nearly 50,000 people will lose their current health coverage in the coming weeks.

The figure encompasses cancellations announced by insurance departments and providers in Kentucky, Alaska, Tennessee, New Mexico, North Carolina, Maine and Colorado.

The possible political consequences are clear in states like Kentucky, where Senate Minority Leader and leading ObamaCare critic Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is defending his seat against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Nearly 14,000 people in the state are set to lose their health plans, most of which are offered by Humana, the Morning Consult reported.

Remember when if you liked your health insurance, you could keep your health insurance?

Yeah, me neither.
