"Friendly reminder from CNN: Senate Democrats killed a 2010 GOP proposal to let more people keep their plans" In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obamas promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.
The District of Columbia is an island surrounded by reality. Only in the District of Columbia could you get away with telling the people if you like what you have you can keep it, and then pass regulations six months later that do just the opposite and figure that people are going to ignore it. But common sense is eventually going to prevail in this town and common sense is going to have to prevail on this piece of legislation as well, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley said at the time.
The administrations own regulations prove this is not the case. Under the grandfathering regulation, according to the White Houses own economic impact analysis, as many as 69 percent of businesses will lose their grandfathered status by 2013 and be forced to buy government-approved plans, the Iowa Republican said.
On a party line vote, Democrats killed the resolution, which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year

Repeal — and not replace — Obamacare.
She’s just pissed off she couldn’t get dental coverage ... so NO one can.
OMG... I have never seen Kay Hagen before.....NC can do WAY better.....she looks like a WITCH!!
Whoaaaa Kay— and Sebelius are Halloween ready in looks 24/7, 365 days plus leap year.
End it. Don’t mend it.
The grandfather clause was the one that was supposed to let us keep our insurance but it was weakened after passage by HHS regulations . I doubt they were trying to block that.
Its the mandates in the bill (the key part of the bill) that is causing this, requiring maternity coverage (for all adults), drug addiction treatment and mental illness, no lifetime caps, preexisting illnesses....
Those affordable policies with reasonable deductibles didnt have all of those so they are banned.
Its long overdue to see Obama being attacked from most sides.
I see the text post above says that, but that doesn’t look right.
The O/Care debacle looks like the House check-kiting scandal.
Dems--even in safe seats--were tossed out by angry constituents.
Democrats Scramble to Distance Themselves from Obamacare (RATS want a refund)
Breitbart | 10/30/13 | Wynton Hall / FR Posted November 01 by Libloather
**SNIP** Other Democrats now say they agree with Republicans that a delay of the individual mandate may be the only way to salvage the disaster and save face. "I think the administration is going to have to look at it [delay of the individual mandate]. and I'd encourage them to do so," said Rep. Gene Green (D-TX).
Five Democrats have now asked for the Obama Administration to seek a refund from the contractors responsible for the Obamacare website fiasco. Reps. Ron Barber (D-AZ), William Enyart (D-IL), Pete Gallego (D-TX), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and Filemon Vela (D-TX) wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder urging the reimbursement effort.
Delaying the mandate wont get those young invincibles to sign up to pay for it and make it work . It hurts Obamacare but buys some Dems some time
