Obummer knew, as the words left his lying, fraudulent carny act....." if you have a healthcare plan and you like it, you can keep it, period! No one can take it away".
Now making front page headlines, the light is cast upon this huckster, this used car, snakeoil salesman, this liar, this fraud, this hypocrite. Current estimates project anywhere from 16 to possibly as many as 35 million Americans may have their policies cancelled regardless of whether or not they are happy with them and NOT with more affordable ones. He knew....period!
Take note, this isn't from Fox News.
White House knew millions couldn't keep health plans
By Lisa Myers and Hannah Rappleye, NBC News | CNBC – 8 hours ago
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.
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."
The FFN virus is spreading. All network news is corporate owned. The fact is that if you have a plan that is up to standard you keep it. If you have a substandard plan you have to upgrade.
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.
Yet President Obama, who had 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."
"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," said Robert Laszewski, of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, a consultant who works for health industry firms. Laszewski estimates that 80 percent of those in the individual market will not be able to keep their current policies and will have to buy insurance that meets requirements of the new law, which generally requires a richer package of benefits than most policies today.
All of this was known about Obama before the last election and he still won by a wide margin. You know what, today if he ran again he would win!!! Snake oil salesman he is, just seems people fall for his BS. Over half the population are really too stupid to even be allowed to vote, and as a result this is what we get.
