BROOKLYN - A large number of Brooklyn residents are voicing their anger after losing their health insurance when the Affordable Care Act went into effect.
President Obama recently apologized for initially telling Americans they would be able to keep their current health insurance under the new act, which has turned out to not be true for many.
"I'm sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me," said President Obama. "We weren't as clear as we needed to be, in terms of the changes that were taking place."

Not everyone feels disdain for the president's admission, though. Some are understanding of the fact that such a large undertaking could easily lead to mistakes being made. Others question the motivations for insurance companies dropping policy holders.
