Millions will lose employer based Health Insurance – not Grandfathered


Anyone who caught Megyn Kelly on Fox News last night, got the bad news, For those who missed it, grab a chair and sit down while I tell you about it. It was only going to be the five percenters that Obama felt sad about now wasn’t it? Now we learn that employer based health insurance will be lost by millions.  No grandfather clause for them either. And our thief in chief knew all along. Up to now it has been spun that big bad business would dump their plans because it was cheaper to take the $2000.00 penalty, when all along they simply would not be able to offer the same policy. Thus, the policies will no doubt be much more expensive, have the same high deductibles and co-payments. Best part, most of the working stiffs would not be eligible for “subsidies.”
Obama Lied – Justice Dept Filling States Most Americans Could Lose Employer Health Care Plans – Kelly

National review:

We now discover even more evidence of how brazen Obama’s lies have been.

Obama’s claim that unwelcome cancellations are confined to the individual-insurance market is another brazen lie. In the weekend column, I link to the excellent work of Powerline’s John Hinderaker, who has demonstrated that, for over three years, the Obama administration’s internal estimates have shown that most Americans who are covered by “employer plans” will also lose their coverage under Obamacare. Mind you, 156 million Americans get health coverage through their jobs.

Unable to deny that millions of Americans have lost the coverage he vowed they could keep, Obama and other Democrats are now peddling what we might call the “5 percent” con job. The president asserts that these victims, whom he feels so terribly about, nevertheless constitute a tiny, insignificant minority in the greater scheme of things (“scheme” is used advisedly).

Even this 5 percent figure is a deception. As Avik Roy points out, the individual market actually accounts for 8 percent of health-insurance consumers. Obama can’t help himself: He even minimizes his minimizations. So, if Obama were telling the truth in rationalizing that his broken promises affect only consumers in the individual-insurance market, we’d still be talking about up to 25 million Americans. While the president shrugs these victims off, 25 million exceeds the number of Americans who do not have health insurance because of poverty or preexisting conditions (as opposed to those who could, but choose not to, purchase insurance).

    Ahh, Obamacare is working exactly as it was designed. This particular cat may have escaped the bag sooner than they wanted, but it has escaped, nonetheless. I don’t see how the Obama administration can continue lying to the American people without severe consequences.

      Still this is going to a hard ship to turn around. Our only hope is that the insurance companies catch on that they are being played. In the end it’s single payer.

    A few weeks ago, I tried to tell some of my homeschool parents that their employer-based policies were not safe from what ObamaCare has done to individual policies. These hey-it’s-not-going-to-happen-to-me folks kept insisting the opposite!

    Once the employer mandate kicks in millions more will lose their healthcare insurance and that is why Obama delayed it a year. I expect him to delay it again next year to avoid this catastrophe right before the election. Once the election is over we are all going to feel the pain!

    Another, BACKFIRE. Obama is already the greatest firearms salesman in the history of mankind, now he is the greatest converter of people from liberal to conservative. Even the liberals that I know, you should hear what they are saying with anger. Wow, what a “Change”.

    The goal is single payer. It has been for a long time. I truly hope that zerocare blows up while this clown is in office. His legacy should be failure at everything.

    Weren’t the insurance companies in on this scam from the beginning? They knew they would be dumping all of their individual and group policy holders into the ObamaCare exchanges. And, whith the young healthies forced by the law to buy insurance, the pool would be bigger than ever and they could sell everyone higher cost plans with highr deductibles. ObamaCare was planned to be a big win for the insurance companies and big government.

      Indeed. As I posted earlier, every Hospital and Insurance company reads the Federal Register religiously. The is the publication that posts proposed rules for comment, then promulgates their decision. The unions as well. With government owned Hospitals, which will occur after they bankrupt them, there will be millions of unionized workers, just like the TSA,

        It will be interesting how this ends. My hunch in the end, the plan is to do in the insurance companies. It will be the big bad insurance companies that have to be done away with. Single payer here we come.
