“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.… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

My Texas named company is strong arming us into the High Deductible BC/BS plan by raising the HMO costs by A LOT.

Time to secede Texas and take the Red states with us. Let the lefty a$$holes starve and freeze to death.

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”… Read more »
