“If You Like Your Plan, You Can Keep It!”

And now, the truth:

Well, part of it anyway. 2,000,000 people who obviously “didn’t like their plan” since they don’t get to keep it under Prince Barry’s Health Care Diktat is actually a low-ball estimate. It’s more likely to be around 16,000,000.

No, you don’t get to keep your plan, and that is exactly what the lying swine, president Zero, intended all along.

Because without you kicked off the plan you liked and forced to purchase an ObamaCare plan with three times the premium and twice the deductible for coverage you neither want nor need, there would never be enough funds to cover the free riders. It’s basic math. If you have a group of high risk, high cost individuals who need to have insurance pay for their expenses, then you have to have a large group of people buying an expensive policy that they’ll never use if the math is to add up.

And Ogabe and the Democrat Socialists knew this all along. Only you obviously can’t sell anything that way, so they lied, lied, lied, lied and then lied some more, knowing full well all the time that they were lying through their teeth while the “media”, who also knew they were lying (or are dumber than a particularly daft fencepost), kept their mouths shut to protect their Democrat Socialist masters and their almighty deity, Barry the Lightbringer.

How, apart from being sentient and knowing math, do we know that this was the plan all along? Remember the selling point about existing plans being “grandfathered” into ObamaCare, an actual part of the written legislation that was “passed” way back when? Well, Ogabe had his darling Frau Kathleen Mengele’s agency add a regulation that specified that if said plans had had their co-pays or deductibles “significantly” changed (the definition of “significant” being entirely up to Frau Mengele’s agency), then they couldn’t be grandfathered.

Which meant, of course, any and all existing plans as said plans would simply bankrupt the insurance companies under the new coverage mandates if left unchanged.

Of course we knew this all along as well, so why are we bothering talking about it?

Because if we didn’t, nobody would.

Will anybody listen? We don’t have much hope. They didn’t listen when we spent years and years warning as many people as we could about just exactly what would happen but, at least, now that everything has happened precisely as we said it would, we DO get the satisfaction of saying “why of course. We told you so years ago when you wouldn’t listen.”

And nobody will ever be able to come to us and say “but, if you knew because you grew up under it, why didn’t you warn us?”

We did. Repeatedly. And we were far from alone in doing so. America didn’t listen.

Now enjoy it. Good and hard.

Thatisall.

    Poppycock!

    The ACA was a BRILLIANT plan! EVERYTHING that has gone wrong was due to the Republicans intransigence and obstructionism! Sure, they’re so incompetent that they couldn’t organize a circle-jerk in a San Francisco bathhouse, but they are FULLY capable of fouling up every last ONE of President Obama’s (Peace Be Upon Him) brilliant plans!

    They’re just evil like that.

    The people losing their insurance right now are the people under the individual mandate. Remember that the employer mandate was delayed. When that kicks back in then there’s going to be tens of millions losing their insurance that’s currently provided by their companies. But that will be after November 2014.

    50% of the American people are like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football. Stoopid fuckers keep thinking that electing the same semen slurping cock sockets will change things.

    LC Light29ID – The Imperial Asshole @ #:
    I was one of the voices crying in the wilderness since ’09 about this. I told family and friends that folks would be losing hours at work. I told them that we would be losing our employer health care. And the almost uniform reaction was that I was over-reacting, and that those things would never happen. When I had to drop the employer health care last year because they dropped my plan, and the other one cost more than the catastrophic annual family cap for Tricare, I actually said “Told you so!” to my mother, who simply changed the subject very, very quickly. I vented pretty hard after the election last year, and this last month has been one unending bout of schadenfreude, just rather too heavy on the schaden, and much, much too light on the freude.

    The POS plan they left us with at work (which I’m not signing up for again, and I’m not allowed by law to sign up for the HDI/HSA because of the Tricare coverage) went (for a family) from an employee share of the premiums of $3K and a max out of pocket of $5K to premiums of $4.5K and max o-o-p of $10K. I don’t know how anyone can “afford” that.

    Sebelius is now blaming Verizon.

    Sebelius also made sure to note, “I was not involved in the design of the website.”

    And just as she claimed, “I would suggest the website has never crashed,” the website crashed.

    While Sebelius was saying, “It is functional, but at a very slow speed and very low reliability, and has continued to function,” CNN showed a split screen of her and a live picture of the website, which had a sign clearly saying, “The system is down at the moment.”

    Sebelius backtracked under grilling by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., claiming, “I’m not pointing fingers at Verizon,” and “[W]e own the website.”

    One congressman who lost his health-care insurance confronted Sibelius in a fiery exchange.

    Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., showed the letter canceling the insurance policy covering him and his family, then pointedly asked Sebelius, “Why aren’t you losing your insurance?”

    She replied she already had insurance.

    “I would urge you to be like the American people,” Gardner said.

    A loud round of applause broke out and continued until the hearing was gaveled back to order.

    “Why won’t you go into this exchange?” Gardner demanded of Sebelius.

    Gardner tweeted: “My ins. cancelled thx to Obamacare. Sebelius refuses to admit to a bait & switch. Millions will lose ins. they were told they could keep.”

    The problems are already starting in my practice.

    In the last week I’ve had five patients tell me that they’ve been given cancellation notices by their insurance companies and are now required to buy policies that are more expensive, have less coverage and higher premiums. I’ve also had patients who are looking at what’s going to happen to their “Cadillac” plans down the road.

    There are a hell of a lot of angry people out there.

    Gov’t document: Health site poses security risk
    By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
    http://bigstory.ap.org/article/govt-…-security-risk

    WASHINGTON (AP) — An internal government memo obtained by The Associated Press shows administration officials were concerned that a lack of testing posed a “high” security risk for President Barack Obama’s new health insurance website.

    The Sept. 27 memo to Medicare chief Marylin Tavenner said a website contractor wasn’t able to test all the security controls in one complete version of the system.

    Insufficient testing “exposed a level of uncertainty that can be deemed as a high risk,” the memo said.
