Obama Lied, Healthcare Coverage Died
By Matthew Vadum
In an uncharacteristically media-savvy move aimed at capitalizing on current affairs,
Republicans compiled a list of 13 Democrats –including Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.)– who deceived voters by obediently repeating Obama’s lies.
Providing another ground for impeachment to pile on to the growing list of Obama’s high crimes and misdemeanors, NBC News reported that four sources “deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act” said that
“50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a ‘cancellation’ letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law.”
Many of those required to buy more expensive new policies will experience “sticker shock,” the sources said.
The administration generated an estimate in July 2010 that stated “that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them,” according to NBC.
But President Obama, who said the year before, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still promising in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
