Jay Carney had the audacity to say the other day that only a “small sliver” of people were having their plans cancelled. That refrain was immediately picked up by the Democratic surrogates. Apparently caring about individuals like Edie Sundby doesn’t mean much to them, as long as they get you to comply with draconian measures.
So we thought we’d show you the “small sliver” affected so far. Expect this to increase…

Just a couple of notes:
-this map is looking at people from the individual and small business market, it doesn’t include those with employer plans, many of those are also being affected and/or having to pay more. So there are many more who may be forced into higher rates or whose plans may yet be affected.
-Maryland alone reported today 73,000, so that number for VA, MD, DC has to be increased.
