Top Democrat says those aren't 'cancellation notices,' they're 'transitions' into Obamacare
Washington Examiner ^ | October 30, 2013 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 10/30/2013 7:52:20 AM PDT by Biggirl

Insurance companies aren't sending out cancellation letters, they're helping people "transition" into Obamacare, according to a top Democrat.

"If [the companies] changed [the insurance plans] then they have to notify the people who have to have the opportunity to have another policy," said House Ways and Means Committee ranking member Sander Levin, D-Mich.

Do liberals sit around and think up ways to insult our intelligence???

So, these are not cancellation notices, they are notices that you your life is now complete as you “transition” into Obamacare??? Really?????

Does anybody with an IQ above 50 actually believe this explanation, this pile of horse blank being shovel ready and shoveled out to us????

Hey Sander Levin, I hope the people of Michigan fire you. Wait... in your world, you wouldn't be fired, you would just be given the opportunity to seek employment elsewhere, and the voters would be assisting you in making a smooth transition. MORON!

I think we should flood the government with Obamacare cancellation notices from We the People.

LOL.

And when you are fired from your job because of the bad economy, you are actually just being transition into a new and exciting world of exploration for new and as yet undiscovered entrepreneurial opportunities.

Levin is a first class PARTY ABOVE COUNTRY progressive fascist. It is not an “Opportunity”. That implies choice. People are being FORCED into the exchanges. People who have never used force or fraud themselves against anyone, are having FORCE initiated against them by the Government of the United States.

“How is “FREEDOM OF CHOICE” increased by the Federal Government decreeing that it ALONE has the mandatory authority to force us to buy what we do not want, under penalty of a Federal Fine?”

“Is Obamacare, therefore, in violation of US Anti-Trust Law?”

So when the pResident said “If you like your plan, you can keep it” he really meant to say “If you like your plan, we will force your company to ‘transition’ you to something you like less”

I think the fact they named this monstrosity, 'affordable', serves as proof that they do. That and the 800 number should leave very little doubt that they're not absolutely yukking it up over their wittiness.

This is just the arrogance of liberal tyrants. Only THEY can know what is best for you.

To do that, you must surrender all self-choice and control over your life to them.

It is the will of the collective. It has been repeated over and over again in this world’s history, and it has always ended in devolution or disappearance of that collective.

It has to be a transition, because having one’s health insurance cancelled would be doubleplus ungood.

Next year we all will be forced into larger homes with commensurately larger property taxes, maintenance/utility expenditures and insurance premiums, no matter our need for said larger home or our ability to pay these added costs.

Liberals use words very well in their war against liberty.

Example: pro-abortion = pro-choice
I’ve had libs get very angry with me when I said the correct word. Same with “illegal alien”.

Now you're catching on Comrade! And what a glorious transformational society we will become! If anyone stands in the way of the regime, they will be considered a counter revolutionary and be dealt with accordingly...say, a letter or visit from your friendly I.R.S agent, to 'correct' their thinking.

“Liberals use words very well in their war against liberty.”

Amen to that. The latest examples is all the “conservatives’ from “conservative organizations” now pushing Congress hard for Amnesty.

I wouldn’t mind hearing our side make use of words such as “Socialism”, “Central-Planning” and “Totalitarianism” a bit more often.

Two things. One, having one’s insurance cancelled doesn’t necessarily shift him into the exchanges, because the exchanges aren’t actually working right now. And even when a sucker eventually logs in, he’s quite likely to cut and run when he sees his rates and deductibles on the charts.

Two, lots of folks are just going to opt out, maybe pay the penalty, and find some other way of getting care.

Leaving only the low income and the ill to suck taxpayer money off of the exchange accounts. Briefly.

If an otherwise legal contract is declared illegal by the government, then the government cancelled the contract. It makes no difference what kind of feces is spread across the pages of the document, facts are facts.

Wow! How helpful!

I, too, wish to be helpful!

I am offering to help transition this fine fellow into an delightful avian-based Halloween costume with the assistance of wonderful petroleum components, and give him free, luxurious transportation on an aged wooden product that WE PERSONALLY will be happy to put our shoulders against! Huzza! Huzza!

Oooh, that’s funny. Calling Sandy Levin a top democrat. Go look up his record. In 30 years, I think only one bill of his made it to a vote and was knocked down. He offers nothing but typical rat criticism and liberal nonsense. I has the extreme misfortune to be “represented” by him for several years.
