Employer insurance cancellations ahead
While the administration and supporters have been dismissing the loss of insurance by folks buying their own policies as just a "small percentage" of the market, and call what they purchased "junk policies," the howling from folks losing employer paid plans is yet to begin. Just wait until they learn what is in store for them. The politicians (ALL Democrats) who wrote, passed and signed Obamacare haven't seen anything yet.
FTA: "Dozens of times (that we know of) over his campaign to pass ObamaCare and to win re-election, President Obama lied to the American people about being able to keep the health insurance they like. But that lie has only been replaced with another: the lie that these cancellations will be limited to the 5% of Americans in the individual marketplace -- when the truth is that these cancellations have only just begun.
Over at National Review, in a piece appropriately titled "Lying About Lies," Michael Tanner reports that the same ObamaCare formula currently wiping out the individual market is about to rain hell on the employer-based market. The result will be that tens of millions of policies will be wiped out.
This is a secret that is and always has been hiding in plain sight.
As far back as last March, the media dutifully reported that the CBO reported that these cancellations were coming. So the media knew Obama was lying during the campaign but never said a word to spread this truth -- oh, except to call Mitt Romney a liar for telling the truth.
All these Democrats and members of the elite media now pretending they don't or didn't know. Please.
Just as the media knew Obama was lying about people in the individual market being able to keep their insurance, the media also know that the same apocalypse looms for the employer-based market. It is not conservatives making this estimate, it is the Congressional Budget Office.
But the same conditions that are causing the cancellation of individual policies will eventually result in the cancellation of millions of employment-based policies as well. The only reason that hasnt happened yet is that the employer mandate was postponed for a year, so employer plans dont yet have to be ACA-compliant. But they will. Even the Congressional Budget Office estimates that as many as 20 million workers will lose their current employer-sponsored plans. Combine that with those losing individual plans, and more than 30 million Americans cannot keep their current insurance."
FTA: "In order to buy time, Obama, Democrats, and the media are trying to con the American people into believing that the rolling ObamaCare catastrophe is compartmentalized to just 5% of the population. This conspiracy of silence is all about trying to contain through a lie of omission what is a legitimate reason for the public to panic as soon as they realize that they are next.
Obama is not sorry for lying. And the media are not sorry for covering up that lie for three years.
The phase we are in now is nothing more than a 2.0 version of that exact same lie."
