Fed Register/Vol. 75, No. 116/Thu, June 17, 2010/ 34553: Tens of millions will lose employer-provided insuranceTopics: Political News and commentaries
For the benefit of those foolishly pinning their hopes of keeping their employer plans on Obama's 'phony' promises ... lots of luck on that (Click image to enlarge):
Top of Page 34,553 TABLE 3 -- ESTIMATES OF THE CUMULATIVE PERCENTAGE OF EMPLOYER PLANS RELINQUISHING THEIR GRANDFATHERED STATUS, 2011 - 2013, Bottom of Page 34,552:Read more here."Under this assumption, the Departments' mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013. The low-end estimates are for 49 percent and 34 percent of small and large employer plans, respectively, to have relinquished grandfather status, and the high-end estimates are 80 percent and 64 percent, respectively."
Bottom line ... keeping your plan or your doctor was never intended in the first place, the law was intentionally written to make the 'grandfathering' so difficult that you really had little to no chance of keeping what you have.
As Peter Ferrara has noted at Forbes, every one of the major promises Obama made to the American people regarding Obamacare has now been proven to be shamefully deceitful.
And as John Hinderaker aptly noted last week at Power Line in his piece titled Lies of Obamacare, Documented, it's the usual toxic stew of lies, corruption and incompetence that we have come to expect from Barack Obama. But one last point should not go unmentioned: where has the press been in all of this?
As of 2010, it was blindingly obvious -- was baldly stated by the Obama administration itself -- that under Obamacare, far from being permitted to keep your health care coverage if you like it, most Americans' policies would speedily be terminated, and all would soon cease to exist. Given the dozens of misrepresentations by Barack Obama and other members of his administration, and given the entirely dishonest basis on which Obamacare was rammed through the Democratic Congress without a single Republican vote, and given that Republicans' warnings were indisputably coming true -- was there not a news story here? How can it be that three more years went by before our one-party media thought to mention what happened back in 2010? One can only imagine how the 2012 election might have been different if the electorate had understood that Obamacare was sold on a scaffold of lies.And stunningly, those lies not only continue ... but are compounded by even more deceit and deception.
