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
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).
