    If you want to keep your plan....

     

    ...well #$%$. Just another of the great liar's lies.

    From the Wash Times...

    President Obama's health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.

    CBO said that this year's tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they'll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.

    • forget about it. You won't be able to keep it. Obama says so.

    • Yes, marginal tax rates will be too low, and affordable care will be more affordable. Whutta revoltin' development, as Chester Riley used to say:

      Fewer People with Employment-Based Coverage
      In 2022, by CBO and JCT’s estimate, 7 million fewer
      people will have employment-based health insurance as a
      result of the Affordable Care Act; in August, that figure
      was estimated to be about 4 million people. The
      revision is the net effect of several considerations, with
      the largest factor being the reduction in marginal tax
      rates, which reduces the tax benefits associated with
      health insurance provided by employers. The increased
      movement out of employment-based coverage also
      reflects revisions to CBO’s projections of income over
      time and higher projections of employment-based coverage
      in the absence of the Affordable Care Act.
