You’re an idiot, it really is that simple. Barack Insane Obama believes that you are a complete imbecile who cannot under any circumstance be trusted to make the correct decisions and therefore must knowingly and willfully lie to you to get you to make what he considers the correct decisions. Yes, Barack Insane Obama has known all along that he was lying to you about Obamanationcare. But it’s ok, it was a lie told to you in your best interests. You are just to fucking stupid to know what is in your best interests, therefore it was necessary for Barack Insane Obama to lie to you, because like a cow to the slaughter, you required a bit of the ole electric cattle prod to encourage you to do what must be done.
The law is supposed to work this way. Of course he knew.
But he didn’t want you to know. So he and his deputies lied and lied and lied.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date — the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example — the policy would not be grandfathered.
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”…
“This says that when they made the promise, they knew half the people in this market outright couldn’t keep what they had and then they wrote the rules so that others couldn’t make it either,” said Robert Laszewski, of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, a consultant who works for health industry firms.
So they carved out a phony “grandfather” provision to take some political heat off of themselves while the law was being debated in Congress, then basically eviscerated it after the law passed to quietly maximize the number of people who got soaked. Laszewski himself is suddenly staring at a 66 percent premium increase and higher out-of-pocket costs now that his own plan got canceled. Remember when John Roberts was torn to shreds by righties for calling the mandate a tax? The mandate might not be a tax, but the provisions about which plans are and aren’t legal under the law effectively is. It’s a direct hit on middle-class wealth in the name of subsidizing the sick. But rather than sell it that way, as a de facto tax to provide welfare for the needy, and risk a political backlash, Obama chose to lie his ass off in falsely reassuring people they could keep their plan if they liked it. You’re welcome, America.
Are you getting that loud and clear yet? Barack Insane Obama knowingly and with a forethought of malice lied to the American people, He knew all along that 75 percent of the 14 million American’s who purchase their own healthcare insurance were going to lose their healthcare insurance. Under Stalin, tens of millions of Soviet Citizens found themselves in gulags, the vast majority of them, even as they were dying from the viciously brutal conditions died muttering, if only Comrade Stalin knew, he would save us.
Like the Obama faithful, those poor Soviet Citizens simply could not bring themselves to understand or accept that not only would Stalin not have saved them if he knew, he after all, did know, but it was Comrade Stalin himself who was responsible for their being in those gulags. The Obama faithful (those who drank the Obama Zombie virus contaminated kool-aid), like those doomed Soviet citizens will go to their deaths believing that it was someone else who was responsible for Obama lying to them. The evil Republicans forced Obama at gun point to lie about the damage that Obamanationcare would do to the American economy and to the United States Constitution. Remember, these Obama zombies are the exact same fools who think that taxing the rich 100 percent will solve all of our economic problems.
Now take a moment and think about the implications of Barack Insane Obama lying right from the start about Obamanationcare. If Barack Insane Obama was willing to lie about Obamanationcare, which did not actually place him in a danger of legal prosecution, what would he do when facing legal prosecution over executive decisions that he had issued that he fully knew were illegal? How many willful and with a forethought of malice lies did he tell regarding “Operation Fast and Furious”? How many willful and with a forethought of malice lies did he tell regarding the Stand down order that got Ambassador Christopher Stevens killed in Benghazi Libya?
How many other scandals are the Obamanation Administration Schutzstaffel and their Fifth Column Treasonous Media Co-conspirators hiding from you right this very second? Of course the Obama Zombie virus kool-aid drinkers will vehemently deny that Comrade Obama knew anything, or took part in any way shape or form. No amount of documentation or indisputable evidence will convince them otherwise, they have invested their very souls in Barack Insane Obama, they would gladly douse themselves in gasoline, then carry a full 5 gallon gas can in each hand as they walk bare ass naked through the gates of Hell, then admit that they were deceived by Barack Insane Obama. It will always be someone elses fault, just like 6 years later, the economy is still George W Bush’s fault.
