"If you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan."
-- Barack Obama --
He knew it was a lie all along:
Administration: 51% Of Companies’ Health Plans Won’t Pass MusterThis deceit is what it took to get ObamaCare passed. What was so great about it again?
By Sean Higgins and David Hogberg, Investor's Business Daily
Internal White House documents reveal that 51% of employers may have to relinquish their current health care coverage by 2013 due to ObamaCare. That numbers soars to 66% for small-business employers.
The documents — product of a joint project of the Labor Department, the Health and Human Services Department and the IRS — examine the effects new regulations would have on existing, or “grandfathered,” employer-based health care plans.
Draft copies of the documents were reportedly leaked to House Republicans earlier in the week. Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., posted them on his Web site Friday afternoon. (View the full report here.)
According to the report, by 2013 51% of all employers — 66% of small employers (3-99 employees) and 45% of large employers — would have to relinquish current coverage. In a worst-case scenario, 69% of firms would lose their grandfathered status.
This could pose a serious threat to President Obama’s claim that if you like your coverage, you’d get to keep it. [link]
