"Just three months after Democrats in Washington passed Obamacare on party-line vote, the administration said in a little-noticed reference in the June 17, 2010, Federal Register that about half of Americans with employer-provided insurance or individual coverage would lose their policies by the end of 2013.
On pages 34,552-53 of the Federal Register, the Obama administration offered a mid-range estimate that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013. The estimate for individual policies that would not be grandfathered was 40-67 percent.
That means that 93 million Americans are at risk of losing their insurance, according to Manhattan Institute scholar Avik Roy.
A more recent estimate from Duke University health care economist Christopher Conover says 129 million people will lose their policies by the end of 2014.
"It was Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., who let it slip that Democrats all knew Obama was not telling the truth when he repeatedly promised Obamacare will not force anyone to lose their health insurance.
ABC News Martha Raddatz asked Gillibrand on This Week recently if the president had misled her and fellow Democrats....Â when pressed, she acknowledged, No, we all knew
Yup, think lowlifes like brian pulled a fast one..
Looks like the whole thing was a conjob, by some lowlifes, like brianloser.

Hmmmmm, nothing surprises me with shorts, most of them are dis-honest trailertrash - like mzbrian.
I got it from an email from S A, I deleted it, so can't get it back..
It's weird all right..
Now here's a possibility -- he shorted against the box.. That's a neutral position, they cancel each other out. As it's taking a big hit, he starts buying. A little strange, but the only thing that makes sense..
OPKO got some big time press today and the street will now know about the company.
bozo and einhorn have some wealthy enemies, over the #$%$ they've pulled in the past. Ichan hates em for sure. So, if anybody wants to smack these losers, here's an easy way to do it.
I think those 2 clowns mad a big mistake...
and this stock is not going to make them any money, either.
