How many times have we heard Obama mention the fact that if you want to keep your Doctors you can, period. If you want to keep the same insurance policy you can, period. What’s amazing is he told us this with a straight face. Its like playing poker, if you bluff a lot you keep the players at the table in wonderment.
What has happened with the insurance companies that they are forced to cancel policies and they are sending out cancellation letters left and right is the HHS headed by Kathleen Sebelius was supposed to have Grandfathered in the old health care regulations even though they didn’t meet the new health care requirements. It has been recently projected that about 14 million people will lose their health care because of these tighter regulations set forth by Sebelius, and you know she wouldn’t have done this without the approval of Obama, oh that’s right, Obama never knows anything.
The following is from investigating reporting of Fox News, “of this should come no shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date — the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example — the policy would not be grandfathered.”
NBC News also got in the act: Deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
I believe what has happened here is the Obama people realized early on that the young people were not going to enroll in Obama Care as was expected. So they narrowed the regulations to the insurance companies which put them in an unaffordable predicament of not being able to meet the Government requirements of the Obama Care law. This is forcing the insurance companies to cancel policies and guess what? The people who are canceled are now forced into the Obama Care exchanges to make up for the young people who are not enrolling.
“That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Yet President Obama, who had promised in 2009, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
“This says that when they made the promise, they knew half the people in this market outright couldn’t keep what they had and then they wrote the rules so that others couldn’t make it either,” said Robert Laszewski, of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, a consultant who works for health industry firms. Laszewski estimates that 80 percent of those in the individual market will not be able to keep their current policies and will have to buy insurance that meets requirements of the new law, which generally requires a richer package of benefits than most policies today.
This is the devious Obama Administration we are dealing with. In a way the breaking down of the software system is a God send to give the American people the time to understand what these socialists are doing to our country. You must understand, this is for real, this is hard ball, we as a people are in trouble, we must all wake up and not give in to the socialistic revolution Obama and his cult have started.
