Re-Rolling The Lemon
On October 1st of this year Obama rolled out his "signature piece of legislation" which we now know affectionately as Obamacare. Better name now might be Obamascare. It turned out to be one of the biggest lemons since Rambler rolled the Gremlin off of the assembly line. After 3 years and millions and upon millions of dollars of our tax dollars the system was so simple to navigate that you couldn't really even log in. The best computer minds, who were connected to Moochelle Obama, were awarded a no bid contract to produce the most expense technological lemon ever. Then Obama had the audacity to compare it against an Apple rollout? Really?
Then the other hidden surprise crept out of the Obama closet and people by the millions started to receive their cancellation notices because their old policy wasn't up to Obamascare snuff with offerings they didn't have any interest in wanting or paying for. Dr. Obama was hard at work even though he repeatedly told us that if we liked our present policies we could keep them. PERIOD!
So lets watch this video where back in 2010 Obama admitted that 8-9 million individual policy holders would lose their coverage because of Obamascare and they would just be thrilled about it because they were going to get better coverage. The fact is Obama lied all along and he knew it. In his own words captured again on video.

The deals are worse, rather than better, as those folks are now finding out. I think the Republicans might have been the only people who actually read that bill. The Democrats were following Pelosi's lead of "pass it so we can find out what's in it." It was like the Dems didn't know how to read was it? They definitely knew, at that point, that Obama was lying and then started repeating his lie knowing he was lying. That should disturb anyone but another pathological liar.
So lets go back to the lemonade stand and continue on. The website fiasco is a bit of a distraction right now from the more serious issue of the American public being bamboozled. The 8-9 million folks with individual policies are just the tip of the iceberg. Remember those mandates where the federal government is telling you what, when and where to buy a product, namely your health insurance? Those mandates are expensive in case you aren't catching on.
The American Enterprise Institute just released a research study that is letting the bigger cat out of the bag that will make that 8-9 million figure pale in comparison. The study has calculated that the people who may lose their policies for the very same "constructs in the law" that Eric Cantor mentioned upwards of 80 million folks. Now let me ask you something since you know Obama wasn't being straight with us from the get go. Why do you think Obama delayed the business mandate until after the 2014 mid-term elections? I think even Stevie Wonder can see the answer to that question. This is about to get uglier than it already is I can assure you.
It is estimated that of the 157 million Americans who presently hold employer provided health insurance policies nearly half of those people would start losing their coverage's in 2014. Do the math. If you are one of those folks you may want to toddle on down to your human resources department and start asking some fast and hard questions. You may not continue to grin about Obamacare when you do.
Another cheery reminder comes from the Manhattan Institute which made this observation, “the administration estimated that approximately 78 million Americans with employer sponsored insurance would lose their existing coverage due to the Affordable Care Act.” Notice the words "administration estimated." Of course they knew and still know. So why did Obama delay the business mandate until after the mid-term elections?
The American Enterprise Institute states that this administration anticipates one half to two thirds of smaller business policies will have to be cancelled and the workers be compelled to go onto these glorious exchanges. Can't you just wait. You're going to have to because Obama unilaterally delayed the business mandate until after the 2014 mid-term election. Oh by the way. The same study predicted up to 100 million, give or take a few, small and large business policies can face the Obamascare axe. A real comfort to you now is it?
Just an observation. It seems any fix that Obama thinks up involves throwing tax payer money at it. Why is that?
One thing should be perfectly clear at this point unless you're dumber than a box of rocks in Omaha. The projections issued by this administration itself point out vividly that they knew this was all about to come down around our ears. They knew it all along and lied to us about it all along. The Democrats wrote that law in a very naked attempt to take over 16th of this nation's economy. Face the facts now time!
A look at the Federal Register shows a mid-range estimate that 76% of small group plans and 55% of large group employer plans would be cancelled. By when you ask? According to the Federal Register by 2014. So let me ask you again. Why did Obama delay the employer mandate until after the 2014 mid-term election?
You now have your answer in case you didn't think about it before. Grab those tennie runners and beat em feet em down to your human resources manager and start finding out how much this might cost you. In fact, what I am talking about is already beginning to happen and you would know that if you are using credible news sources in your daily life.
When HHS started formulating the "grandfather rules" they knew exactly how to kill off that policy you like and wanted to keep. PERIOD. The stuff is just beginning to hit the fan and the website is the least of our worries.
