Skip to comments.Flashback: Busted liar Chad Henderson enjoyed accusing conservatives of lying
Posted on 10/05/2013 11:01:56 AM PDT by lowbridge
As Twitchy reported, the Obamacare poster boys been busted for falsely claiming that he successfully purchased health insurance for him and his father early this week. Now that hes been put on the defensive, hes trying to change his story. You might think he couldnt look much worse than he already does and youd be wrong.
Henderson, you see, has a history of lazily accusing others of lying:
Turns out hes not the poster boy for Obamacare
hes the poster boy for projection!

“local man” not so local after all.
I posted this earlier:
This is going to be thoroughly entertaining to watch.
Economics 101; A lesson for democrats/progressives.
The realization by 0bama zombies and their sycophants that economics is NOT about math, but a reflection of human nature and self interest.
This Zerocare experiment will leave them scratching their heads as their supporters choose to pay the penalty/tax since it is substantially less expensive than paying for someone else.
As the young idealists that are fundamentally selfish tout this train-wreck they themselves will act in their own interest.
I expect that very soon we will see ads from everyday people that are excited to pay for something they dont want or need.
The next phase of propagandacare will be an attempt to guilt the young into signing up.
Cue Sally Struthers, and the sad sad stories.
For the price of just one Starbucks coffee a day, you can provide care for this sad desperate crack addicted high school dropout single mother from a broken home of another sad desperate crack addicted high school dropout single mother from a broken home
And so the burning question reveals itself: “When will Chad have his own show on MSNBC?”
Chad Henderson will probably replace Carney as the Out house clown and chief liar.
Little day care worker, Chad, has a LONG history of LYING!!! What kind of MAN works at a day care center??
Able-bodied people who don't feel like working are already covered by Medicaid. Obamacare lowers rates for working people who can't get big company insurance, either because they're part-timers or contractors. At Trader Joe's, the big company health plan for part-timers actually costs more for the employees than Obamacare for the same terms:
Trader Joes is one employer known for offering generous health care benefits, even for part-timers (until now). But even those workers could end up better off under Obamacare. In an internal email published by the Washington Post, a Trader Joes exec provided some calculations for a part-time employee who earns about $24,000 per year and has been paying about $167 per month as her share of a Trader Joes policy similar to a silver plan under the ACA. If she enrolls in Obamacare, the subsidized cost would fall to about $70 per month for nearly identical coverage. And thats before a $500 annual stipend Trader Joes plan to offer part-timers to help them pay for insurance.
For companies like Trader Joe's, it costs more to provide health insurance than the premiums paid by its employees for the company health plan. What it is doing here is pushing that expense off to the Federal government. This is why Obamacare is a budget buster, not because TJ's part-time employees are worse off (which they are not), but because the huge expense of covering the rest of the insurance premium (that was previously paid by TJ) will fall on the federal budget.
Insurance companies have a business model based on an ever-changing set of probabilities and risk.
They make decisions that will both keep them in business and allow them to fulfill their contractual obligations.
Zerocare, increases those “obligations” and attempts to restrict their ability to adjust their risk by imposing higher premiums.
While most health insurers have seem to have found ways to increase those premiums, it is becoming a burden to employers since health insurance has become an expected benefit of being employed.
I can’t help but being reminded of when I was recruiting for a large company at a college “career fair”.
This was back in the early 1990’s, and I talked to hundreds of applicants. Over the course of two days I was struck by the percentage of applicants that ultimately seemed programmed to ask about “Training”.
I got to the point in which anybody that asked about “Training”, I cut them off and kinda told them to go away.
Whatever happen to being smart enough to figure things out on your own ?
We have been conditioning multiple generations to fall in line.
We are conditioning younger and younger people to “expect” certain benefits.
UPDATED: Obamacare Poster Boy Chad Henderson and His Dad Didn’t Really Buy Insurance
Confirmation of Paid Democrat Trolls?
Chad Henderson Exposes The Media (Lied to LSM about enrolling in ObamaCare)
[snip] In the medias rush to make a star out of Henderson, they failed to vet him thoroughly. Most of the press missed the fact that Henderson is a current political activist and Organizing for America volunteer. Somewhat more egregiously, they also missed the fact that Hendersons story was not true. [/snip]
I'm not sure there are limits on increased premiums. The constraint is that insurance companies must spend at least 80% of premiums on patient care. The problem here is that the federal budget covers any premium increases.

Pushed to the logical conclusion before it happens.
Single payer option ?
Are established insurers this stupid ?
Have they been gamed ?
Did they read the bill ?
Insurers are not the stupid ones. Uncle Sam covers the difference. The dumb ones are the Wall Street morons making a big stink over the GOP shut down. When this is all over, they'll be paying 50% of their income in Federal income taxes. In fact, anyone making over $100K will eventually vote in lockstep for the GOP due to crushing income tax rates. However, by then, it will be too late. Because the new programs introduced will benefit so many sub-$100K income households that they can neither be repealed nor reduced in size, and an overwhelming majority of the electorate will be voting Democratic. And all because Democratic and GOP tycoons couldn't stomach the idea of being aligned with social conservatives who are opposed to gay marriage, but whose religious views also oppose income redistribution due to their adherence to the commandment that "Thou shalt not steal", even if the government does it for you.
