Breaking News at CNN: Senate Democrats Voted to Kill Other Health Plans -- Three Years Ago

by Randy Hall, News...busters

It's always interesting when people in the “mainstream” press catch up to something conservatives and Republicans have known for a long time.

That was the case when Chris Frates, an investigative correspondent at the Cable News Network, reported on Friday that "Senate Democrats voted unanimously three years ago to support the ObamaCare rule that is largely responsible for some of the health insurance cancellation letters that are going out.”

“In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule,” Frates wrote,“warning that it would result in cancelled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.”

At that time, Chuck Grassley -- a Republican senator from Iowa -- stated:

"The District of Columbia is an island surrounded by reality. Only in the District of Columbia could you get away with telling the people if you like what you have, you can keep it, and then pass regulations six months later that do just the opposite and figure that people are going to ignore it.

"The administration's own regulations prove this is not the case. Under the grandfathering regulation, according to the White House's own economic impact analysis, as many as 69 percent of businesses will lose their grandfathered status by 2013 and be forced to buy government-approved plans...."

“On a party-line vote, Democrats killed the resolution" since the Democrats had control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives at that time, the reporter noted,“which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election.”....

Obama lied, my policy died. The Kenyan cow pie has come to town stinking up the place.
