Obamacare Forcing Insurers to Drop Insured’s with Low Coverage … I Thought Obama Promised You Could Keep Your Healthcare? #YouLie
Hate to say we told you so, but we told you so. What happened to Barack Obama’s promise … if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, no one will be able to take it away from you. It hasn’t happened yet, and it won’t happen in the future. Guess what America, OBAMA LIED!!!
Forget the glitches and disastrous failure of an Obamacare website rollout as everyone in the White House, HHS and contractors point fingers at each other and play the blame game, have you noticed that more individuals have lost their insurance than enrolled in Obamacare? As Powerline calls it, “Adventures in Obamacare”. Obama and his minions knew that the promise that individuals could keep their health insurance was a lie, or was he just that ignorant? Hardly. But the low information voters hung on his every lie and reelected him.
In the category of continuing adventures, we have the cancellation of millions of individual health insurance policies as a result of Obamacare. Obamacare has consigned millions of affordable health insurance policies have been consigned to the ash heap of history. Michelle Malkin told the story in the first person last month in “Obama lied, my health plan died.” The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack updated the story this week in “Millions of Americans are losing their health plans because of Obamacare.” McCormack links to Robert Laszewski’s estimate that 16 million Americans have shared the Malkins’ fate.
The Affordable Care Act was signed by President Obama in 2010 and since then he has repeated one reassuring phrase: “If you like your insurance plan you will keep it. No one will be able to take that away from you. It hasn’t happened yet. It won’t happen in the future.”
But it is happening. The president’s health care law raises the standards for insurance policies, which many consider to be a good thing. But hundreds of thousands of Americans whose policies don’t meet the new standards are being told that their health plans are being cancelled.
