Obama Lied, Your Insurance Plan Died

Is America in an abusive relationship with this administration?  The President and his Democrat cohorts continually lie and cheat the American people, yet we still take them back.

Safe to say, when NBC is outing the President as an out-and-out liar, things have to be pretty bad.

Obama (2009):  “If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan.  Period.  No one will take it away.  No matter what.”

Via NBC News:

President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.

You were lied to repeatedly for years.  Republicans told you that you were being lied to repeatedly for years.  And yet you took him back.

And it gets worse…

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.”

None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, 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.

Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”

That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.

NBC goes on to point out that aside from the 2009 quote above, the President was still making the claim that you could keep your insurance as late as last year when he said, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”

The President originally assured people that nobody would take their insurance away.  But somebody did take it away.

He did.

Period.
