Barack Hussein Obama promised in 2009,
“if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,”
was still saying in 2012,
“If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
It’s really amazing that NBC News, bastion of false narratives and lies to protect the Liar-in-Chief, is now reporting that the Obama administration knew millions could not keep their health insurance.
Imagine that, one more huge lie by the man who told the American people he would be having the most transparent government in history. And they have this all in writing, to this day, on the White House website.
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.
Government should be transparent. Government should be participatory. Government should be collaborative.
So much for all that nonsense, we find out daily what liars Obama and his entire political party, well beyond his administration, are. And RINOs from the GOP participate in this charade by going along not because they like him but because they too believe in lying to the America people.
NBC News decided to actually do some reporting on the failed Obamacare, the false promises made and how they are now becoming apparent to anyone with an individual healthcare policy.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
Yes, 14 million heath insurance consumers are receiving notices of cancellation. What they have to look forward to is a more expensive alternative on some healthcare exchange if they ever work properly. Fixing at least 5 million lines of code from software of 500 million lines of code may never happen completely – this mess will probably never work or function properly. Not to worry, it’s the law.
Originally the law said your policy would be “grandfathered” in even though it did not meet the qualifications of Obamacare. But HHS made some changes to that by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date — the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example — the policy would not be grandfathered (March 23, 2010).
Because of normal turnover within the insurance market millions would then lose their policies – “40 to 67 percent” – according to a July 2010 estimate buried deep in the bowels of the Affordable Care Act.
Robert Laszewski, of Health Policy and Strategy Associates states:
“This says that when they made the promise, they knew half the people in this market outright couldn’t keep what they had and then they wrote the rules so that others couldn’t make it either.”
Of course the regime argues that everyone will receive better coverage, more affordable coverage and it will be a sunny day across the heartland. One caveat to the “nothing will change” scenario is that coverage “can continue until 2014.” Check your calendar, that’s coming in two months.
The Affordable Care Act requires insurance companies, private businesses, to offer more coverage, more benefits but the costs are so staggering people can’t afford it. Individuals with minimum coverage that don’t want more are now required by the government to have more. Yes, Big Brother, the tyrants in the regime are telling you what to purchase.
Mr. Obama failed to mention that minimum requirements exist and those things will be added on and will cost you more money. Don’t have more money? Too bad, get a penalty under the law or get the insurance. Eat less, scrape up that dough. Can’t afford the out of pocket costs afterwards? That’s your problem.
Keep in mind – while you’re required to buy the insurance at higher costs or get a government plan your elected officials have voted to keep their Cadillac plans provided for them. Yes, they don’t have to get the Obamacare plan, only you do.
This is how tyranny’s operate.
