Friday, President Obama apologized to Americans whose health insurance plans are being canceled because of the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare.
"I just think the idea in general, being told what to do and not having a choice in the matter and the idea the coverage would not be as good. When you can just go out and pay what you want for the coverage that you want," said Jesse Smith, Wood County Resident.
"I don't think it really means a whole lot to me. I think he knew it was a lie when he said it and apologizing now he's jsut trying to save face with the people. He said himself on TV this was going to be affordable care and it wouldn't be anymore than my cell phone bill. My cell phone bill is $50 a month. A premium bill with pre-existing, which wasn't suppose to be a big deal either, is $700 a month," said Sherrie Hutchinson, Washington Resident.
Some insurance companies are also cancelling policies for other reasons and some may be withdrawing from states where they have fewer customers.
