Earlier this week, Sebelius testified, the following "caveat" was added to the growing list of ACA lies - this one regarding employer-based coverage:

“If you had or have one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law,” Obama said to OFA volunteers and supporters in Washington D.C.“And you really like that plan, what we said was, you could keep it… IF it hasn’t changed since the law’s passed.”

So what kind of numbers are we looking at here when it comes to losing health insurance? 93 million people will lose their plans either in the individual market or through their employer. That's quite the caveat.

So not only are people with individual plans who don't meet Humpty's criteria being forced into another plan, but now those with employer-based plans.

I realize the left views the vast majority of Americans as mindless, low-info fools, but HumptyCare is giving these "fools" a pretty quick education in the consequences of their "thrill-up-the-leg" support for democrats. If this keeps up it WILL hurt them in the mid-terms.

Some just don't realize that this system has nothing to do to change the way care is administered it is a shift from one insurance carrier to the other. The cost of care will still keep going up and every year your policy will change and be cancelled and then you will need to go to the "marketplace" and choose your very expensive plan. It wont be long and your premium will be more than your mortgage payment and you wont be allowed to cancel or change, its a trap sprung on you and you fell for it by the lure of cheaper payments.

the only ones getting "rich" off the ACA are the lawyers, accountants and the POTUS and the Congress. The insurance companies are raising their rates as they always do because the costs keep going up. The cost of labor, supplies, utilities, taxes, etc. Of course, since the Doctors have the temerity to want to make a living, they are condemned. Perhaps those who are so excited about "free" healthcare should really look and see who is paying for their "free" healthcare and their subsidies. yeah, those of us who are working and paying taxes, just like always. the only thing Obama has done has increased the number of people receiving "free" stuff from the rest of us.

I've said it before, the old adage, "liberalism (in this case progressive liberalism) ALWAYS results in the exact opposite of it's stated intent".

A DEMOCRAT plan was pitched to lower premiums, increase competition, provide coverage to millions who couldn't previously afford it. The end result is proving to increase premiums by forcing those who can't afford it into a limited set of plans that offer few alternatives.

Mission Accomplished!
