Barack Obama Offers One Year “Fix” to Obamacare Until After the 2014 Midterm Elections Are Over … Insurers Will Be Able to Keep Currrent Substandard Policies For a Year
Barack Obama once again playing political games with Americans and America … All he did was trade one lie for another!!!
WHAT A FIASCO ... Today, President Barack Obama presents a one year
joke fix to his disastrous Obamacare. As reported at the WSJ, Obama was forced to announce because of poor poll numbers and pressure from Democrats up for election in 2014 that insurers will be able to continue health-insurance coverage next year for current policyholders that otherwise would be canceled under Obamacare. Hmm, but I thought their insurance plans were such “bad apples” and “substandard? They were junk plans, they were terrible and Barack Obama and the Democrats were going to ride in on their white horses and safe the ignorant masses from themselves. Obamacare was forcing people from their terrible policies because they were so bad for Americans. You mean now they are okay? What planet is this guy from? Just what turnip truck did he just fall off of? Exactly how is it that Barack Obama is allowed to change a law all by himself? We are still a Federal Constitutional Republic, are we not? So after Obama set new standards forcing insurance companies to change their policies and discontinue other
All Obama effectively did was kick the can down the road and create more uncertainty for America. Now they are supposed to change everything because Obama said so. The insurance companies had to prepare for the regulations inflicted upon them by Obamacare and had to act accordingly. Now Obama says, oops, my bad. Who operates like this? But guess what happens next year as well … the “employer mandate” kicks in as well and more individuals will be tossed off their plans as businesses will stop covering their employees.
President Barack Obama said Thursday that insurers will be able to continue health-insurance coverage next year for current policyholders that otherwise would be canceled under the new health-care law.
The change marks a significant policy retreat by the president, one that he hopes will quell an intensifying protest over his faulty promise that Americans can keep their insurance plans under the new law.
Mr. Obama’s announcement came on the eve of a House vote on a Republican bill to alter the law, which was gaining traction among Democrats, particularly after the administration’s release Wednesday of low enrollment figures for the first month of the federal government’s problem-prone online insurance marketplace.
With millions of Americans set to lose their current health insurance, Mr. Obama said he understands that getting a cancellation notice is upsetting, “particularly after assurances they heard from me that if they had a plan that they liked they could keep it.” He added: “To those Americans, I hear you loud and clear. I said that I would do everything we can to fix this problem. And today I’m offering an idea that will help do it.”
He said that while Americans who received cancellation letters can renew those insurance plans next year, they should examine other options available on state and federal insurance marketplaces since they may be cheaper and offer more coverage.
“This fix won’t solve every problem for every person, but it will help a lot of people,” Mr. Obama said.
But as The Heritage Foundation discusses, Obama’s fix is just as flawed as his lie of promising to keep your plan if you like it. Now, Obama says it is okay for individuals to keep plans that may not cover “pre-existing” conditions, one of the main requirements of Obamacare. And what happens to those who have already had their insurance canceled? It is not like they can get their old policies back at the same price. What a cluster.
There’s one problem—the President’s promise that his new “plan” can allow people to keep their plans is just as flawed and false as his original “like your plan/keep it” pledge. The law itself is clear: Obamacare’s new benefit mandates—the requirement to cover all individuals with pre-existing conditions, the new “essential benefits,” and mandates increasing the percentage of health costs insurance plans must cover—all take effect on January 1, 2014.
The fix truly is in … Obama did this today to shift blame elsewhere and try and save the political butts of Democrats. This had nothing to do with helping the American people and healthcare.
