Shocking News! Obama Administration Nixed Exemption in Affordable Care Act That Allowed You to Keep Your Plan
The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date -- the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example -- the policy would not be grandfathered.And who was in charge making sure Obama's promise was an empty one? Obama's hand picked Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.“This says that when they made the promise, they knew half the people in this market outright couldn’t keep what they had and then they wrote the rules so that others couldn’t make it either,” said Robert Laszewski, of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, a consultant who works for health industry firms. So even if we pass the law, we still don't know what's in it, do we? Because Obama randomly makes changes to the, either by Presidential Whim or by making sure his hand picked cabinet issues regulations that effectively rewrite the law that Congress passed.
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.” That means the administration knew 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.
BTW has anyone checked page 2017 of the obamacare act, which obama signed? Is there a death warrant for himself/pelosi/reid and the others in there little commie circus hidden in the bill?
Did any of them bother to read what they signed??
