93 Million Risk Cancellation

Oct. 31, 2013

Forbes' Avik Roy reveals that, “[I]n an obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register, administration officials predicted massive disruption of the private insurance market.” In other words, even more evidence exists that Obama knew you couldn’t keep your health plan. Roy ran the numbers and determined that “51 percent of the employer-based market plus 53.5 percent of the non-group market (the middle of the administration’s range) amounts to 93 million Americans” likely to lose their plans. Yet this week Jay Carney insisted that it’s just “5 percent of the population” that will be affected, and Obama claimed that only “a fraction of Americans with higher incomes … will pay more on the front end for better insurance…”

He knew. Too much evidence and discussion back when it was being debated (if you can call it a debate).

Even if you give him the benefit if a doubt, you then have to label him ABSOLUTELY FECKLESS.

We all knew that this was going to happen. Obama Care is not about healthcare, It is about redistribution and control and the destruction of the greatest healthcare system in the world. Why do you think people come here from all over the world for care? (they can't get it anywhere else as good or as fast)

What difference at this point does it make? It's the law of the land. With the exception of the executive, legislative staff and unions. Oh, and some other financial supporters of The Party!
