Obama admin. knew millions could not keep their health insurance

By Lisa Myers and Hannah Rappleye

President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.

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...

All by design and it has nothing to do with healthcare. These goons don’t care about anything but “total power and control.” They want to decide who lives and who dies just like Hitler, wanna bet?

I suppose it’s a surprise to the MSM that Obama lied to everybody, but it’s not to anybody in this forum. They had to pass that monstrosity before anyone read it because it would be obvious from the text they were lying.

PMSNBC is running for the bunkers! People have seen nothing yet. Wait till tax time next year when those who have employer provided Healthcare, that currently think they’ll be unaffected, find out they get taxed on the cost of their plan!

So NBC admits it.

They will now proceed to explain why it doesn’t really matter, why it’s really Best for You, why it was a Well Meaning error committed with only the Best of Intentions.

‘Cuz ya know Bammi’s a great guy and he would NEEeeever do anything to hurt ya.

CBS last night on Benghazi and now NBC on 0bama lies on 0bamacare.

It would be nice to think 0bummer is losing the enemedia but I doubt it.

They knew that 40-67% would lose their policies.

The media knew this too, I bet.

Yesterday, CBS’s 60 Minutes exposes much on Benghazi, and today NBCNews hits Obamacare and the lie about keeping one’s coverage if they liked it.

Are the MSM finally turning?

Nahhhhh. Occasional random acts of journalism don’t make them reliable or middle-of-the-road. They still have an agenda.

At least with the Obama administration, there are enough crises and disasterous policies to keep the newsies busy running in circles. One crisis trumps another in news coverage, so none really get much attention.

Obfuscation under the guise of being news.

This has not been a new revelation, over a year ago I got a letter saying my plan was getting canceled.
The media purposely refused to report on this and every other lie just to make sure Obama wasn't damaged through the 2012 election.
This is nothing short of economic treason.

Its called “salesmanship”.

Its called “telling you what you need to hear to get you to do what they want you to do”.

Because once the pony is out the barn door, there is no getting it back in.

Video of the obamists talking in front of friendly audiences show them admitting quite openly that the intent from the beginning is to put an end to private health care. The video is out there, but the alphabet networks never showed it.

“Wait till tax time next year when those who have employer provided Healthcare, that currently think they’ll be unaffected, find out they get taxed on the cost of their plan!”

That would be interesting and they might like to, but it would be difficult. There are probably nearly as many retired folks receiving health insurance from the companies they worked for as there are employes. What are they going to do? Send them a W2?

***********
The cascade of negative stories (Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Obamacare rollout, Snowden, etc.) is piling up to the point they they have breeched the MSM containment wall. The media can no longer can’t hide all the crises and their own credibility is in shambles. The MSM may be getting tired of trying to defend the indefensible.

You made me go there to check it out. 99% of the comments are strongly negative! most against Obama himself. Gotta love that.

Was shocked to read one comment: “Where’s Lee Harvey Oswald when you need him?” Wonder if that guy is at his front door answering to the secret service right now.

Funny thing is that NBC knew back in 2009 too, but they failed to live up to the Constitutional exception they have. They let the American people down.

A 1099. That started last Jan. 1st. Speaking of retired folks, they get a 3.8% tax on passive income.
