And the deductible on the old policy was, I assume, zero. Funny how there's always one fact missing in these stories that prevents you from getting the whole picture. Look, for all I know the old deductible might have been zero, or it might have been $25,000, but if you're going to try to make a case, then give us all the information, not just part of it. This technique is now being used time after time to show individual situations in the worst possible light. The most common ruse is to compare an old plan to an exchange plan without factoring in the government subsidy for which the person is eligible. But of course, none of this qualifies as a "pack of lies." Just selective interpretations of the truth.
