Yesterday CNN's Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash reported that the White House has until Friday to come up with some kind of solution to get people's insurance plans back before Congressional Democrats in both the House and the Senate move to push legislation restoring insurance plans.
President Obama promised Obamacare would bring more competition to health insurance markets. He lied.
After all of the reports of failed attempts at signing up for Obamacare, it shouldn’t really be a shock to find that most Americans who plan to get insurance through the new system haven’t even been to an exchange website.
President Obama showcased his‘consumer friendly’ HealthCare.gov website in a 2010 how-to titled ‘Not Your Ordinary Website Demo.’
And yet the president shamelessly promised time and again on the campaign trail and elsewhere that, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
The Obama Administration changed a "grandfathering" provision that would have allowed most Americans to keep their insurance and, as a result, estimated that 40% to 67% of all members of the individual health insurance market would lose their plans.
This is a classic example of what might properly be described as “moving the goalposts.”
I suppose this is one way to get misinformed and naïve young people to sign up for Obamacare – which, by the way, is the only way to get the damn thing to work.
These are the stories of those left behind by Obamacare. They won't see their premiums fall. Instead, their insurance will double in price.
In his press conference today, the White House press secretary Jay Carney said he would sign up for insurance under Obamacare- but only if he found himself without coverage.
