(NaturalNews) One of the intended - yes, you read that right, intended - consequences of Obamacare was to destroy the private health insurance industry. Just weeks after the law's official health exchange roll-out, it is well on its way to accomplishing that goal.

At first, it was just a trickle, but now it has become a tidal wave sweeping across the country: Millions of Americans who had their own private, non-employer-provided health insurance are seeing their policies canceled, despite President Obama's huge lie that, if Americans like their plan, "they can keep it."

And all by design, most likely. The reason is sinister. Read on.

First, here are some of the most recent horror stories regarding losses of coverage:

Virginia, Kentucky, Idaho

As reported by CNN:

President Obama may have promised Americans that they can keep their insurance if they like it, but that's not the case in at least three states where insurance companies are required to discontinue plans that don't meet Obamacare's new coverage standards.

Virginia, Kentucky and Idaho have told insurance companies that they must scrap insurance plans that don't meet the minimum coverage requirements laid out in the Affordable Care Act. Some states allow insurers to amend their current plans to include the new benefits, such as maternity care and prescription drug coverage, required under Obamacare.


That is translating into a loss of plans for 600,000 people - no doubt more than a few of them trusted the president when he said, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan" (even though Obama knew years ago he was lying).

California

Private health insurers in the reliably Democratic state of California, with the nation's highest population and most electoral votes, will send cancellation notices to 900,000 people.

But that was always part of the plan, as noted by Fox News:

On The Kelly File [recently], Trace Gallagher reported that in California, insurance carriers had to agree to cancel policies that did not qualify under Obamacare regulations in order to be eligible to participate in the state exchange, Covered California, and receive the federal subsidies.

"Unbelievable. That is an explicit deal to break the president's promise [about Americans keeping their health plans]. It's not even arguably accidental," Kelly responded.


Florida, California, Pennsylvania

In the Sunshine State, more than 300,000 people are going to lose their private insurance plans. Kaiser Health News reports:

Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies.

Florida Blue, for example, is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual policies in the state. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent notices to 160,000 people - about half of its individual business in the state. Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh is dropping about 20 percent of its individual market customers, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is dropping about 45 percent.


Why is this happening?

Ever heard of "single-payer?" That is the concept of dispensing healthcare funding in left-of-center and socialist countries. It is completely government-run health insurance, cutting out the private sector entirely.

And that's what Obama really wants. He said so himself during a campaign appearance before an AFL-CIO crowd; see the video here for yourself: http://www.youtube.com.

Obama, you must understand, is a Marxist. He's a control freak. He's all for Big Government making decisions for you, rather than leaving you to make such decisions for yourself (the individual liberty component of our nation's founding, by the way).

And this is what Obamacare is really designed to do - not "improve healthcare," "lower costs" or "help the uninsured."

It's all about control, as I've written before: http://www.naturalnews.com.

Once you wrap your mind around that fact, it will be much easier to understand why the law is so disruptive.

It was designed to be.
