If you read the Affordable Care Act when it was passed, you knew that it was dishonest for President Obama to claim that if you like your plan, you can keep your plan, as he didand continues to doon countless occasions. And we now know that the administration knew this all along. It turns out that in an obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register, administration officials predicted massive disruption of the private insurance market.
Mid-range estimate: 51% of employer-sponsored plans will get canceled
But Carneys dismissal of the medias concerns was wrong, on several fronts. Contrary to the reporting of NBC, the administrations commentary in the Federal Register did not only refer to the individual market, but also the market for employer-sponsored health insurance.
Section 1251 of the Affordable Care Act contains whats called a grandfather provision that, in theory, allows people to keep their existing plans if they like them. But subsequent regulations from the Obama administration interpreted that provision so narrowly as to prevent most plans from gaining this protection.
The Departments mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013, wrote the administration on page 34552. All in all, more than half of employer-sponsored plans will lose their grandfather status and get canceled. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 156 million Americansmore than half the populationwas covered by employer-sponsored insurance in 2013.
Another 25 million people, according to the CBO, have nongroup and other forms of insurance; that is to say, they participate in the market for individually-purchased insurance. In this market, the administration projected that 40 to 67 percent of individually-purchased plans would lose their Obamacare-sanctioned grandfather status...

Let me see if I have this correct. Being black in America means not only do you not have to admit guilt or ever apologize... you can get away with whatever crimes you wish to get away with as long as you serve the communist overlords well?
In the 2000+ page Necronomicon are hundreds of citations that say “......at the Secretary's [HHS] discretion....”.
Which is roughly translated, “whatever we pull out of our keester.”
Wife just got the word that due to this, her company told her that for her to keep her insurance, premiums would be going up significantly.
93 million Americans estimated by HHS in 2010 to lose their insurance due to Obamacare?
I am still laughing over NJ Dem Pallone on Kelly File lastt night claiming over and over that Obamacare doesn't impose ANY regulations on insurance companies and what we see in cancelations is the results of a ‘free market system’
LEXINGTON AND CONCORD OR FORT SUMTER.
WHAT’S IT GOING TO BE??
The only amazing thing about this whole “debacle” (Sebelius own word) is that 50% of the populace still believe the lies of the liberals in spite of undeniable evidence that we all are being lied to.....
Obama continues his bold claim of keeping your policy even when liberal media is calling him a liar!
“Don’t confuse me with the facts. My minds made up.”
A country with this mentality is doomed..........
Democrats lie, cheat and steal all the time, yet the voters believe these fakirs every time.
Only the liberals “believed” that what Obama was saying was true.
In the first chapter of “How Evil Works”, it is explained thoroughly why people WANT TO BELIEVE LIES.
It is going to get worse -— So much worse. And Democrats don’t care.
You are not alone... 80% increase on what is purchased above and beyond the cafeteria allotment. The question begs, did said employer have the smarts to change the plans to = the qualified plan model in 2010, or will the potential conformal change skyrocket the cost even more when this hits Employer Mandate Plan(s) next year I believe...
They knew they lied and they don’t care. All they have for us is scorn.
Payback will be a bitch.
"It is going to get worse - So much worse. And Democrats dont care."
I think a certain portion of the Left honestly believed that this disaster would somehow work out (it's part of their Marxist faith). Then there are a lot of leftists that are secretly celebrating what's going on- it's payback time, after all: "Everything you have, you took from poor victims, like me... and now you're going to know first-hand what it's like to suffer. Ha ha ha"...
Democrats are going to die too under this regime. It is too bad our side has to go along for the ride.

Months ago people were telling me that the IRS rules were narrowly written and benign. I pointed out that HHS would write the final rules; I was laughed at. Now nobody’s laughing. Except Frank Pallone.
