Skip to comments.Second wave of health plan cancellations looms (50-100 million right before fall 2014 elections)

A new and independent analysis of ObamaCare warns of a ticking time bomb, predicting a second wave of 50 million to 100 million insurance policy cancellations next fall -- right before the mid-term elections.
The next round of cancellations and premium hikes is expected to hit employees, particularly of small businesses. While the administration has tried to downplay the cancellation notices hitting policyholders on the individual market by noting they represent a relatively small fraction of the population, the swath of people who will be affected by the shake-up in employer-sponsored coverage will be much broader.
An analysis by the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, shows the administration anticipates half to two-thirds of small businesses would have policies canceled or be compelled to send workers onto the ObamaCare exchanges. They predict up to 100 million small and large business policies could be cancelled next year.

Time for another postponement.
D*mn Republicans. Can’t they ever get anything right? If they don’t fix this before the next election, Mary Landrieu will be blaming them for failing to help fix the problem. They better wake up or suffer the consequences.
Wanna bet the insurance companies delay this until after the election, in exchange for more candy from the regime?
Mary Landrieu was aiming for two years, but the powers that be slapped it down. Hope and change might be more like "hope FOR change." I think it's going to hurt in 2014, and I'm usually pessimistic about electoral politics. Way to go, Dem lemmings--follow O right off the cliff.
Just looked this up out of curiosity. In TODAY’S dollars it cost 400 million dollars to build the Titanic, the same as the Obamacare website. Three observations:
1) At least the Titanic made it 3/4 of the way
2) If the Titanic were Obamacare it would have sunk when they broke the champane bottle on the hull.
3) If we had global warming back then the Titanic wouldn’t have sunk at all
What Obama really needs to do is go after guns again. That will get him and his lib senators out of this utopian clusterf*ck.
Maybe he can have a sit-down with CBS and explain Fast & Furious, or have a chat with David Letterman about Ben Ghazi?
Love the pic!
A good graphic with that mutant from Total Recall would be good. Big bam bam with a little bam bam coming out of his chest
All the Republicans have to do for campaign ads is run over and over again 0bama saying “if you like blah blah blah”
This “wave” would be happening right now if not for Obama’s illegal decree delaying implementation for large corporations.
Where is Congress? Why are they allowing this usurpation of Congressional authority? Where is the Speaker of the House? Why isn’t he demanding Obama obey the law?
Don’t postpone anything. Let it hit people and hit em where it hurts. They voted for this.
Think anybody will have the balls to ask Carney point blank about this? Even better, how about this question the next time obama has a press conference, assuming he ever has one again?
HM—where did you get that? Is it a bumper sticker?
And not a single republican voted for the bill. ONLY DEMOCRATS! Needs to be in every ad!
Obama lied. People will die.
I just met with my insurance agent at lunch, my plan and all my “Consultants” are forced into Obummercare, I have no choice as no plan is exempt after 1-1-14. I have a 4000.00 deduct now and pay $1200.00 a month, New program is 6,000 and is $2200.00 a month. I am blessed and can handle this but SH T is about to hit the fan. My agent said every program he works with from 2 to 50 employees are seeing these increases. The amount of money being drained from the economy is going to tank it.
People will not put up with this and they will take it out on Dems. This is going to be repealed I guarantee it.
$6,000 deductible and 1,000.00 more per month. Sorry
Absolutely! This is what the stupid Democrat voter supported by voting for Obama and his Democrats. I wish I could see their faces when the cancellation letters arrive and they discover that any new policies will cost three times as much with huge deductibles and with much less coverage.
Unfortunately, many of those who didn't vote for the Clown-In-Chief are going to suffer also. So, just let the suffering begin! I will laugh at the miserable Democrat voters when they start whining. They are starting to whine even now!
ye shall reap what you sow. did you vote democrat?
how’s that CHANGE working out for ya?
It was pointed-out at the time that the bipartisanship was in the opposition to the bill.
You are indeed blessed if you can handle this outrage. Good luck to you.
I love it! That’s great timing.
Let’s not forget that the GOP leadership wanted to give a delay so it wouldn’t hurt the democrats before the election.......
I have no choice and I owe it to my people, this is why I know this will be repealed.
NO ONE WILL ACCEPT THIS.
I am praying for you Mesta, I am sorry I have lost contact with you,I have been out of the loop for some time.
I am encouraged you have some options now and pray you find solutions for you and your daughter.
# of Astronauts from Oregon: 3
# of Obamacare enrollees from Oregon: 0
AND the opposition party will fight on the behalf of true Americans to repeal the whole cr@p sammich.
Third, offer piecemeal legislation on exactly “what” people were complaining about their health care and/or coverage plan.
Are you kidding, postponement? Are we that stupid to NOT see that 0bummer will simply assign us a plan that meets the “law” requirements? Of course this is the chaos he was hoping for.
Although they are required by law to give a certain amount of notice before termination, the heavy hand of Valer...I mean obama, ‘convinced’ these companies that it was better to violate the law than get what would be coming to them.
I wouldn't count on those cancellation notices going out before the ‘14 elections.
Costs much less to put the Falcon 9 into space.
Probably because Obama has dirt on every single one of them.
Have no fear...
The Great Lord Obama will simply do away this requirement until AFTER the 2014 elections, with a wave of his magic wand.
And the Mainstream media will cheer him breathlessly for it, out of fear of losing their jobs if they don’t.
