Democrats Need to Worry About a Lot More than Just Obamacare Web Site Problems in 2014 … They Have a Trust Problem, and That Economy Thing
Hey Democrats, it is not the Obamacare web site that is the from, it is the law, the logistics and the lies …
A WAPO oped penned by Marc A. Thiessen points out the real issues that Democrats should be panicked over for the 2014 midterm election, not the disastrous roll-out or relaunch of the failed web page, Healthcare.gov. There is a reason why no one who voted for Obamacare, only Democrats and no Republicans, never read the 2000 pages of the Obamacare bill before passage. Then, Speaker of the House made the foolish comment, we have to pass the bill in order to see what’s in it. Really? Only politicians with an agenda have to put their hand into the fire to see if they get burned. Now in the wake of the Obamacare roll-out and Americans finally finding out what is being inflicted upon them, they are mad as hell. Democrats are now panicked that they are in trouble for 2014. However, the main issue here is Americans are not just angry about a broken Web site; they are angry about a broken promise.
There is a reason why Obama’s job approval ratings are averaging in the near 30′s. And it is not just about Obamacare, check out his average polling at RCP on handing the economy, it is in the 30′s.
VIDEO – Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) says at 1:03, “if you like the healthcare plan you have, you can keep it”.
- 5.5 million. That is how many people the administration needs to sign up in just 23 days because Obamacare drove them out of their health-care plans. That’s some 240,000 sign-ups every single day, just to break even. Getting that many enrolled in a few weeks would be extraordinarily difficult even if the Web site were working perfectly, which it isn’t.
- 50 million. That is how many Americans will be surprised to find their employer-based health plans dropped or substantially changed next year because of Obamacare. Some will see their plans canceled; others will lose their doctors and see premiums or deductibles rise dramatically.
- 53. That is the percentage of Americans who now say that President Obama is not “honest or trustworthy.” Americans are not just questioning Obama’s competence, they also are questioning his integrity.
- 12. That is the number of Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2014 who are complicit in Obama’s lie. They are on record (and on YouTube) making the same false promise. Democrat Sens. Mary Landrieu (LA) ,Mark Pryor (AR) , Sen. Kay Hagan (NC) , Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (NH), Sen. Mark Begich (AK), Sen. Mark Warner (VA) all in one way or another are on record of making promises that you can keep your heathcare plan if you like it.
- 7. That is the number of states with vulnerable Democratic-held senate seats that also have Republican governors. Why is this important? Because Obamacare premiums are set to skyrocket next year. No wonder the president moved next year’s Obamacare sign-up date to 11 days after Election Day. The flaw in his plan is that the nation’s governors will know the new rates before Election Day. In blue states, Democratic governors may keep the secret, but in red states, such as Alaska, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, New Mexico and South Dakota, Republican governors won’t.
You can fix a web site, maybe … fixing trust, that’s near impossible.
Oh, and by the way, even though Barack Obama has claimed victory and they have met their goals of November 30 … the site still does not work!
Finally Barack Obama Has Support for Obamacare from a Segment of the US Population … Hookers at Nevada’s Moonlight Bunny Ranch
WTF … HOOKERS FOR OBAMACARE!!!
What a ringing endorsement of Obamacare, CBS-Las Vegas reports that the prostitutes at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch are all for Obamacare. The prostitutes, sorry,independent contractors are now eligible for health insurance under Obamacare. It would appear in the past that most all insurance companies were not willing to take the risk of insuring a whore. Oh sorry, independent sex contractor. Imagine that, it is nearly impossible for prostitutes to get health insurance before because of their profession. Wow, really? Because legalized prostitutes never get STD’s, do they? So let’s understand this, we have cancer patients losing their insurance plans, losing their doctors and hospitals so that prostitutes can get insurance? Thanks Obama!!!
Maybe Barack Obama can do a photo-op at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch.
President Barack Obama has at least one segment of America behind his health care law: the legalized prostitutes at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch.
The girls who work at the Bunny Ranch tell KRNV-TV that it was nearly impossible for them to get health insurance before because of their profession.
“Having this profession, we aren’t exactly offered group health insurance,” Taylor Lee said. “It’s hard because I do have a pre-existing condition so I really support Obamacare. I’m excited.”
Caressa Kisses said that insurance providers equated them to illegal prostitutes who have sexually transmitted diseases.
“We’re independent contractors. We have to get our own insurance but this is truly a blessing,” Kisses told KRNV. “I hope they work the kinks out and that affordable health care happens for all because it is really needed.”
The interesting part of this is that Obamacare forcing the owner of the Moonlight Bunny Ranch to purchase insurance for the non-prostitutes at his businesses and cost him about $250,000 a year. Look for the prices to increase next year on Champagne and Pampered parties.
George Will Says on Fox News Sunday: “All Hell is Going to Break Loose’ When Employers Dump Plans Due to Obamacare
The Obamacare web site is not the problem, Obamacare is America’s problem …
On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor George Will discussed the the self-serving administration’s status report on Obamacare that stated its functionality was still months away. Even though they [Obama minions] declared victory on Sunday that they had met their goals. However, as the liberal MSM focuses on the Healthcare.gov relaunch, George Will points out the the worse is yet to come … even more ominous, with potentially much larger implications, he sees on the 2014 horizon when employers start dumping employees on to Obamacare, Medicare and Medicare and “All’ Hell is going to break loose.”
VIDEO: Fox News via NRO/YouTube
“100 million people get their insurance from Medicare and Medicaid, 171 million get it from their employers,” Will said. “Watch the employers. Because if they start dumping people into Medicare and into Medicaid, and the doctors then say, ‘The burdens are too high, and the reimbursement is too low, we’re not seeing Medicaid patients,’ then all hell is going to break loose.”
Full discussion of Obamacare between Fox News Sunday panel can be read HERE of Fox News senior political analyst, Brit Hume; former Democratic congresswoman, Jane Harman; syndicated columnist, George Will; and former Democratic senator, Evan Bayh.
WALLACE: An ad from Organizing for Action, the advocacy group for President Obama, pitching family talks about Obamacare this holiday season.
And it’s time now for our Sunday group: Fox News senior political analyst, Brit Hume; former Democratic congresswoman, Jane Harman; syndicated columnist, George Will; and former Democratic senator, Evan Bayh.
Well, as of midnight, I was going to say we have a new and improved, but I guess it’s an old and improved Healthcare.gov Web site that the administration is touting made dramatic progress. White House officials emphasize, though, the focus should not be on the deadline, it should be on the continuing process of getting it better and better.
Having said that, Brit, don’t they have a lot riding on how this goes, the next few weeks?
BRIT HUME, FOX NEWS SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST: Of course. I think the website is a little better. We were on it yesterday, just to see what, you know, might be out there, what might be available. The site works better. You can get through and check plans.
CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley: Sen. Feinstein (D-CA) & Rep. Rogers (R-MI) Both Say America Is Less Safe From Terrorism Today Than It Has Been in Recent Years … What Happened to Obama’s Claim “Al-Qaeda is on the run”
Looks like Americans were told another lie, I thought President Barack Hussein Obama told us that Al-Qaeda was on the run and on the road to defeat?
This Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, were in complete bipartisan agreement that the United States is less safe from terrorism today than it has been in recent years. Remember when Barack Obama ran on the reelection sound byte that “Al-Qaeda was on the run and on the path to defeat”. Hmm, too bad this president is all about campaigning to win an election and not about leading to defend America against its enemies.
Americans shouldn’t feel safer today than they did before the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees said Sunday.
The country now faces a larger number of threats from splintered terrorist groups and more complex weapons than when the U.S. began combat operations in Afghanistan in 2001, the lawmakers said on CNN’s State of the Union. At the same time, the nation’s spy programs–which can help foil terrorist plots–are under heavy scrutiny that could ultimately lessen their effectiveness.
“The threat is higher today and we’re probably less safe,” Rep. Mike Rogers (R., Mich.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said.
His counterpart in the Senate agreed.
“I think terror is up world-wide,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.). “There are new bombs, very big bombs…and more groups than ever.”
Sen. Feinstein said advanced weapons make it easier to bring a bomb onto an airplane and make it harder to track possible threats.
CROWLEY: The big question that’s always asked, are we safer now than we were a year ago, two years ago? In general?
FEINSTEIN: I don’t think so. I think terror is up worldwide, the statistics indicate that, the fatalities are way up. The numbers are way up. There are new bombs, very big bombs, trucks being reinforced for those bombs. There are bombs that go through magnatometers. The bomb maker is still alive. There are more groups that ever and there’s huge malevolence out there.
CROWLEY: So congressman, I have to say, that is not the answer I expected. I expected to hear, oh, we’re safer. Do you agree?
ROGERS: Oh, I absolutely agree that we’re not safer today for the same very reasons.
So the pressure on our intelligence services to get it right to prevent an attack are enormous. And it’s getting more difficult because we see the al Qaeda as we knew it before is metastasizing to something different, more affiliates than we’ve ever had before, meaning more groups that operated independently of al Qaeda have now joined al Qaeda around the world, all of them have at least some aspiration to commit an act of violence in the United States or against western targets all around the world.
They’ve now switched to this notion that maybe smaller events are okay. So if you have more smaller events than bigger events, they think that might still lead to their objectives and their goals. That makes it exponentially harder for our intelligence services to stop an event like that.
CROWLEY: Because essentially one person can do a small event.
CROWLEY: So, one of the things that the senator said was that there is more hatred out there, more – and why is that? (read more HERE)
How’s that post Iraq looking these days? How’s that claim of the defeat of terrorism looking today? How’s that talking with the Taliban in Afghanistan, the very enemy we looked to defeat, for a troop withdrawal looking these days? How is Libya looking? How about Syria? This is what happens when you put a community agitator, presidential novice in the White House.
Welcome to Obama in Wonderland: Even Though Obamacare Website Not Working Properly, White House Declares Victory Anyway, “We Have Met The Goal”
Welcome to Obamacare in Wonderland, where up is down and right is wrong …
Has the bar ever been set so low for anything that would affect so many American’s lives? Even though the Obamacare web site still has numerous problems and unresolved issues like data being transmitted to insurance companies and crucial system issues involving payments to insurance companies, not to mention security issues … Barack Obama and his minions have declared “VICTORY” and stated that they have met their goals. Of course they have, and you can keep your insurance if you like it also.
The Obama administration claimed victory Sunday for making HealthCare.gov workable for the vast majority of users, a standard that will be tested as millions of people flood the site in the next three weeks.
Sunday marked the passage of the administration’s self-imposed deadline for fixing the broken ObamaCare enrollment website, which serves consumers in 36 states.
The agency that oversees HealthCare.gov said “we believe we have met the goal” of making the system navigable for most people, but cautioned that more problems may lie ahead.
“Dramatic progress has been made,” the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) stated in a report released Sunday morning. “[But] there is more work to be done to continue to improve and enhance the website.”
The mixed message highlights the challenge facing the Obama administration as it seeks to ensure that millions can sign up for individual health plans online by the end of March.
Oh but wait, here is a ringing endorsement that they have met their goals … David Plouffe, President Obama’s former campaign manager said Sunday said on ABC’s “This Week” that it may be years until 2017 before ObamaCare is working “really well.” 2017???!!!??? Hey, wait until 3017, I bet it will be doing gangbusters by then! But wait, I thought Barack Obama declared “Mission Accomplished?”
“This program was designed to be implemented by the states. And in most of the states that are running their exchanges it’s going quite well,” Plouffe told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “You talked about Medicaid expansion. I think it’s just a fact, and it may take until 2017 when this president leaves office, you’re going to see almost every state in this country running their own exchanges eventually and expanding Medicaid. And I think it’ll work really well then.”
They just don’t get it do they, or they just don’t want to admit it. The Healthcare.gov website are the least of their issues. It’s the fact that 5+ million people have lost their healthcare and are peeved. Obama’s promise of keeping their good insurance was a lie. Now Americans are faced with losing their insurance, their hospitals and their doctors. The disaster is just beginning for Obamacare and the pain it is going to inflict upon Americans.
“You see the interest out there … people want healthcare,” Plouffe said. “They’re going to be able to get healthcare.”
“So, if the website is working … people will tell their siblings or they’ll talk their brothers, or sisters or their friends, say I went on, it was pretty easy, I got healthcare. I’m happy with the plan. So, this is going to be something that person to person is going to get fixed or not. And I think what you’re beginning to see is the interest is spiking, because the interest is out there. People just need an easy experience and it hasn’t been easy,” he added.
Plouffe said the administration has gone through a “tough patch” with the botched rollout of ObamaCare, adding that the government shutdown also affected Americans’
The eager liberal media was all but ready to hold Obama’s minions hands to the fire and have an objective, tough and fair discussion about the train wreck called Obamacare. Sure they were. Then a funny thing happened, as opined by Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com, Meet the Depressed had a fair and balanced discussion. David Brinkley is shaking his head in embarrassing disgust and shame. The MSM could not wait to gush over Obama and that the website worked better. Um, worked better than what, a crash a minute? So the water-carrying media are all to joyful to say that the Obama administration came thru on their promise to get the website back up and working better … too bad they can’t say the same about Obama’s promises to the American people that they can keep their healthcare insurance if they like it.
Meanwhile, “Meet the Press” had an Obamacare “Reality Check” segment this morning featuring Ezekiel Emanuel and Ezra Klein. David Gregory planned to have somebody on the panel more to the right of those two in order to provide some balance, but Nancy Pelosi was unable to make it.
Remember when President Barack Obama spoke of the job recovery that was under way … Neither do most Americans!
During Barack Obama first State of the Union Address in 2009 he stated the following: “It’s an agenda that begins with jobs. As soon… As soon as I took office.” Instead he focused 100% on passing Obamacare against the will of the people.
According to the most recent CNN poll, not only is Barack Obama struggling with low job approval numbers and trust issues on Onamacare, with regards to the #1 issue facing Americas today, the economy, 59% things are going badly, only a mere 24% believe the economic recovery is under way. Exactly how long has Obama been making that promise? And instead of making jobs the number one issue, he goes out of his way to destroy jobs with over-regulation and his healthcare and energy agenda. Obamacare has caused business to fire individuals or reduce the jobs from full-time to part-time. An his energy policies are doing their best to destroy the coal industry in the United States.
Americans views on the state of the nation are turning increasingly sour, according to a new national poll.
And a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that less than a quarter of the public says that economic conditions are improving, while nearly four in ten say the nation’s economy is getting worse.
Forty-one percent of those questioned in the poll say things are going well in the country today, down nine percentage points from April, and the lowest that number has been in CNN polling since February 2012.Fifty-nine percent say things are going badly, up nine points from April.
Besides an obvious partisan divide, which contributes to a urban-rural gap, the survey also indicates a difference of opinion between younger and older Americans.
So its not just Obamacare that Americans are dissatisfied with Barack Obama. It is coming from all directions and at some point it will reach the point of no return, if it already hasn’t.
Yea, imagine if we actually did what Obama promised and did oil exploration in the US and made dependency on Middle East oil a thing of the past. Imagine if we regulated less and allowed the American industrial machine to take off. Imagine if we allowed for increases in nuclear, clean coal, oil, natural gas and the dreaded fracking
Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach: A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.
The very small business jobs that Obama is touting are the very one’s that Obamacare is destroying.
But we have never measured progress by these yardsticks alone. We measure progress by the success of our people. By the jobs they can find and the quality of life those jobs offer. By the prospects of a small business owner who dreams of turning a good idea into a thriving enterprise. By the opportunities for a better life that we pass on to our children.
This recession has also compounded the burdens that America’s families have been dealing with for decades – the burden of working harder and longer for less; of being unable to save enough to retire or help kids with college. [Save enough? How are Americans supposed to save with the increase in energy costs, the price at the pump and high premium costs of Obamacare? Let along college ids can't get jobs.]
The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act. That’s right – the Recovery Act, also known as the Stimulus Bill. Economists on the left and the right say that this bill has helped saved jobs and avert disaster. But you don’t have to take their word for it. [Yea, how did that "Hopey-Changey" stimulus waste of tax payers money work out for you America?]
That is why jobs must be our number one focus in 2010, and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight.[What was his #1 focus, jobs or Obamacare?]
You don’t need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. It’s the worry you wake up with and the source of sleepless nights. It’s the job you thought you’d retire from but now have lost, the business you built your dreams upon that’s now hanging by a thread, the college acceptance letter your child had to put back in the envelope.
The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere. [Hmm, doesn't it sound like Barack is talking about the affects of Obamacare on families and businesses?]

Another day and another Obamacare delay …
If this train wreck was an injured animal we would have to do the humane thing and put it out of its misery. The Obamacare debacle continues, Obama administration announces that online enrollment for small businesses in Obamacare will be delayed by a year. Of course they did it in a Thanksgiving Day eve news dump so to lessen the media coverage and hoping Americans will be too busy eating turkey, mashed potatoes and shopping on Black Friday.
Of course this was another convenient delay until after the 2014 midterm elections. What galls me to no end is that uninsured, unaffordable healthcare is a real problem in America that needed to be addressed and Obama simply has made it a political game.
Yup, just one more year delay in online small business enrollment, that will fix it.
The Obama administration today announced a one year delay of online enrollment for small businesses looking to purchase health coverage through federal Obamacare exchanges, another high-profile setback for HealthCare.gov.
It’s the second delay for online small business enrollment, which the administration had said would begin this month.
The White House is trying to get the troubled enrollment website on track for individuals and families seeking coverage, which is a higher priority. It set this Saturday, Nov. 30, as a target date for getting HealthCare.gov working for the “vast majority” of users.
The delay of the small business exchanges comes as little surprise, as the administration had said earlier this week it would offer alternative ways for small businesses to enroll. Still, it undercuts the White House message that it’s beginning to turn around the disastrous rollout of the health care law.

Hmm … Mark Halperin Says Obamacare Contains “Death Panels” … Where Have We Heard that Before, Sarah Palin? (VIDEO)
AMERICANS LIED TO AGAIN BY BARACK OBAMA ON DEATH PANELS …
More at TPM, one of the Beltway’s best-known pundits gave credence this week to perhaps the fringiest of all Obamacare conspiracy theories … death panels. But is it really a conspiracy theory? Didn’t Barack Obama also tell us that if you liked your healthcare plan, you could keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! Didn’t Obama tell us we could keep our doctor and hospital as well? Didn’t Obama promise us that premiums would go down? ALL WERE LIES THAT OBAMA KNEW WERE LIES!!! So what would make anyone think now that the “death” panels, i.e. end of life healthcare rationing were not true as well? Barack Obama hardly has a track record of telling the truth. What was Obama and his minions going to do in getting this bogus law passed and prior to the 2012 presidential, tell the truth that bureaucrats would kill off grandma as they waged a war on the GOP that Republicans wanted to push her off the cliff? Hardly. Obamacare was passed on the intentional deceit of the White House and all that dare get in its way are say anything bad were attacked. How’s that “Hopey-Changey” death panels working out for you America?
“We do need to do some of that in this country, because we can’t afford to spend so much on end-of-life care. A very high percentage of our healthcare spending is for a very small number of people at the last stages of their life,” he said Monday.
“I’m not saying the system shouldn’t allow that, but there’s too much cost. There’re judgments have to be made.”
MALZBERG, HOST: A lot of people said you weren’t going to be able to keep your health care, but also they focused on the death panels, which will be coming, call them what you will, rationing, is part of it…
HALPERIN: No, I agree, and that’s going to be a huge issue, and that’s something else on which the president was not fully forthcoming and straightforward.
MALZBERG: So, you believe there will be rationing, a.k.a. death panels?
HALPERIN: It’s built into the plan. It’s not like a guess or like a judgment. That’s going to be part of how costs are controlled.
Remember when Sarah Palin said there were death panels in Obamacare 4 years ago and was vilified? Now suddenly Democrats are admitting that Sarah Palin was right. Oh how that must pain liberals and Democrats. Suddenly 22 Dems and counting are agreeing with Sarahcuda. Think about that America, the woman that Democrats love to hate was right on “DEATH PANELS”. Just curious, is ‘Palin Derangement Syndrome (PDS), covered under Obamacare?
Dinesh D’Souza Tweets about Obama: “I Am Thankful This Week When I Remember That America Is Big Enough and Great Enough to Survive Grown-Up Trayvon In the White House!”
Just days before Thanksgiving Dinesh D’Souza tweets what he is thankful for and goes there …
Dinesh D’Souza tweeted, “that I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!” Oh boy, you know this is going to evoke a complete unhinged response from the LEFT. They will be calling him a vile racists and a “WHITE” Indian. In 2012, D’Souza released ’2016: Obama’s America,’ a film based on his 2010 book ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage’. Hmm, doesn’t D’Souza understand that only Obama can compare himself to Trayvon, if anybody else does they are race-baiting, racist swine.
And the LEFT did not disappoint as the social media on the LEFT went mental.
Hmm, a grown-up Trayvon Martin in the White House. Having covered the George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin murder trial and the events that led up to the case including the death and three-ring media circus, hell-bent on getting a pound of racist flesh from “white” Hispanic, George Zimmerman,” and having covered this disastrous presidency of Barack Obama, there are many things to be thankful for, I am not sure if I would have worded it quite as Dinesh D’Souza did. Although to be fair to him, it was Barack Obama who interjected himself into the Zimmerman-Martin case before he knew any of the facts of the case. But when did facts or the truth ever get in the way of Barack Obama? It was actually Obama who first made the comparisons to Trayvon, but playing the race card is perfectly okay. It was Barack Obama who said, “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” after he could not accept the jury verdict that found George Zimmerman “not guilty” in the murder of Trayvon.
However, what should have been said was the following … “I AM THANKFUL THIS WEEK WHEN I REMEMBER THAT AMERICA IS BIG ENOUGH AND GREAT ENOUGH TO SURVIVE BARACK OBAMA IN THE WHITE HOUSE”.
America better hope it is big enough and great enough to do so because Obama has caused such great division, dissension and desperation among the people. Obama has devastated the economy and the will of people. Obama has spent us into oblivion at $17 trillion and counting. And if allowed Obama is going to destroy the insurance industry as we know it and in turn further wreck the US economy forever. Let this be a lesson to America, do not ever, ever, ever elect a socialist community agitator president, I could care whether he looked like George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin or Steve Martin.

Almost 80 Million with Employer Health Care Plans Could Have Coverage Canceled … It was Clear Officials Knew the Impact of ObamaCare 3 Years Ago
This is important to be repeated over and over and over, because Barack Obama and Democrats knew it and they went forward and lied to America anyhow …
The current 5+ million Americans who have lost their insurance thanks to Obamacare is a mere pittance compared to what is expected when employers are mandated to cover employees with the rules of the not-so-affordable health care law. Experts are saying that 80 millions Americans could lose their employer healthcare plans and worse yet, Obama and Democrats were 100% aware of the carnage.
CBS News finally reporting the truth or should we say the lies of Obama and Obamacare
Almost 80 million people with employer health plans could find their coverage canceled because they are not compliant with ObamaCare, several experts predicted.
Their losses would be in addition to the millions who found their individual coverage cancelled for the same reason.
Stan Veuger of the American Enterprise Institute said that in addition to the individual cancellations, “at least half the people on employer plans would by 2014 start losing plans as well.” There are approximately 157 million employer health care policy holders.
Avik Roy of the Manhattan Institute added, “the administration estimated that approximately 78 million Americans with employer sponsored insurance would lose their existing coverage due to the Affordable Care Act.”
Last week, an analysis by the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, showed the administration anticipates half to two-thirds of small businesses would have policies canceled or be compelled to send workers onto the ObamaCare exchanges. They predicted up to 100 million small and large business policies could be canceled next year.
According to projections the administration itself issued back in July 2010, it was clear officials knew the impact of ObamaCare three years ago.
In fact, according to the Federal Register, its mid-range estimate was that by the end of 2014, 76 percent of small group plans would be cancelled, along with 55 percent of large employer plans.
The reason behind the losses is that current plans don’t meet the requirements of ObamaCare, which dictate that each plan must cover a list of essential benefits, whether people want them or not.
