CBS confirms over 2 million Americans have been told they will lose their current health care plans…

And it just keeps getting deeper for the Obama administration:

CBS News has confirmed with insurance companies across the county that more than two million people will not be able to keep their existing health insurance plan. Obamacare is forcing insurance companies to drop plans that do not meet the law’s minimum standards of coverage. “CBS This Morning” national correspondent Jan Crawford reports.



At one point in the video below, after quoting the infamous mantra “if you like your health plan you can keep it” from the president, Jan Crawford in narration says “he really didn’t mean it.” OUCH.

This name sake new Law is slowly destroying the Democrat Party. And you know what…. they deserve it. Put together by Democrats and voted for by Democrats. Hell, even John McCain, and Lyndsy Graham were smart enough not to vote for this one and they are everyday Rinos.

“And it just keeps getting deeper for the Obama administration:”

Not deep enough as far as I’m concerned!

Why do you blame Obama? You did not follow the asterisk down to the fine print in clearly legible Latin.

This is what happens when you kiss the butt of the liar in chief. Down the road you find out you’ve been had and have no choice but to report on it because the American people are getting hit with the truth. It’s easy to hide what happened in Benghazi. We weren’t there. But they can’t hide insurance premiums getting cut after Obama promised they wouldn’t be, and you can’t hide the sticker shock after Obama promised our premiums would go down $2,500 a year.

Reality sets in. Yet, Obama’s approval ratings are going back up. Go figure. Are people still not blaming him? It’s those greedy insurance companies! Ugh.

“He really didn’t mean it”? That explains a lot. It doesn’t pass the laugh test, let alone the common sense test, but it does explain a lot. President Tinkerbell thinks he can wave his magic personality and everything will be … whatever. He doesn’t know what it will be, but that’s OK, because he’s the emper.. uh, president. Don’t question him; can’t you see he has to get back to his golf game?

I’ll bet he cheats at golf, too.

Lookit here – 2 million Americans, thats peanuts, that is. Think of the millions of poor American and millions of illegal immigrants and all their children who now can get O’care: that’s success! Those 2 million without: well, you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs (ancient saying by Stalin).

Right, (I’d better say /sarc on/ here) it’s cool, because we were rich and they were poor and that was because of our greedy-capitalist ways, not because of their drug-lord government (Mexico) or welfare-nanny-obstructionist-socialist gummint (US).

We deserve to be (/sarc still on here/) punished for the sin of working hard and making (barely) enough money to enjoy our lives a little. We’re so eeee-vil. Unlike the millionaire obama and his billionaire-bailout-buddies and his own-the-whole-world-haha-puppetmaster soros.

/sarc off/ Thaks, colliemum, for the message in your sarcasm. You’re absolutely right: obama regime: heart of stone, brain of over-cooked pudding, intentions fit to pave the road to he!!.

Spot on with the /sarc on/ !

This is the way to use one of the Alinsky rules on those progs: sarcasm, thick sarcasm, because the lefties have a sense-of-humour bypass and never get irony.

Thank you.

One of my college proffs once told his speech class, “Ideologues have no sense of humor.” That certainly applies to Leftists. So grim. How anyone could be attracted to such a humorless worldview is beyond me.

We need to keep running ads on this disaster of Obamacare all the way to the 2014 elections and get those who voted for Obamacare voted out. The American people need a complete takeover of the House and senate by people who will vote to repeal Obamacare or defund it. Everyone who is not a partisan lefty hack can see the disaster it is. Even the unions see what a mess it is. The elderly are being shafted, the healthy young are being shafted, the middle class is being shafted, this is a winning issue. NO tinkering around the edges, complete repeal. We need to push this theme as a united front. Obamacare has got to go.

Let me explain how this government contracting stuff works. First, the contractor is a company that may/may not be savvy in the area it is contracting work to perform. Though it is required to show past performance (past experience), it can lie and fudge this at times, and some companies often do. In private sector terms, it’s called “padding your resume”. Second, the company submits a proposal to the federal government, along with other interested companies, to obtain the work, and it may/may not have the staff already on board to fulfill the contract requirements. Third, it sends out resume requests to fill the positions necessary to fulfill the contract based solely on the HOPE that the company will actually win the contract. (It may petition subcontractors as well to help out) Fourth, if it wins, HR begins the process of interviewing for the positions to fulfill the contract requirements.… Read more »

Oh really, no, I didn’t know that…well that makes it even more interesting doesn’t it? Where does conflict of interest come into play?

There’s a lot of under-the-table favors done in the federal contracts industry too. They constantly push the limits of ethics. Local federal contractors here are under investigation all the time where I live.

This is akin to me being forced to sell my home,which I have very comfortably lived in for 35 years and being forced to buy one with a swimming pool , an air strip, and a bowling alley in the basement. The trouble is, I can’t swim, I don’t fly, & I hate bowling!

Meanwhile over at the House Ways and Means Committee, Marilyn Tavenner who oversaw the new health-insurance exchanges, has testified she was unaware of the CBS story.

It’s not just Obama who knows nothing. It’s the entire cabinet evidently. More important, she couldn’t provide basic stats on how many people have enrolled in an Obamacare health exchange or the numbers of Americans who have lost their existing healthcare plans that CBS documented.

How long will Americans stand for the I don’t know White House?

On a side note, my 89 year old mother received her cancellation letter from Aetna. Her policy didn’t cover treatment by Obstetricians and Pediatricians. She doesn’t need such coverage, but that’s what happens when a one-size plan is MANDATED by the government for all Americans.

This doesn’t include the millions that can keep their plan, but will have big increases in their premium and deductible.

We can’t. “That would be racist”, and do you REALLY think the likes of liberals Boehner, McCain and McConnell would ever lead that charge?

When the crook is caught red handed on a home video surveillance camera with a bag of valuables in one hand and a flashlight in the other, it’s hard to argue that he didn’t do it.

ObooHoo is the crook. He was caught on video declaring over and over and over again that Americans would be able to keep their current health care. Even his defense attorneys in the media who got their journalism degrees from Cracker Jack U have to acknowledge and concede that he is a liar at some point!

…enter Hillary introduction….

Other sites say it is 10+ Million.

This administration is corrupt, partisan, lawless, coercive, dishonest and ruthless and has been from day one.

They should be removed from the top down.

Maybe this is the plan to get people into the exchanges. If their goal is to sign up 7 mil the first year, cancelling 10+ mil policies outside of obamacare will send most of them into the exchanges.

I wonder when the 2 million people who have lost their healthcare plans will be determined to be racist, and angry just due to the fact they hate having a black president? Guarantee they will somehow spin it like that.

I have an image in my head – pretty funny, really – of the sycophant Obama supporter coming to the slow realization (they cannot think very fast, after all) that Obamacare isn’t what they thought, and they were going to be either uninsured and paying fines, or paying many times their previous cost for worse coverage. (*snicker*). It’s like a tragic comedy.

So, where is the ire from the media? MSNBC this morning had Chris Matthews and a bunch of other idiots crying about how their own personal health insurance was going to be going up dramatically. CBS, NBC… they’re all reporting on this but where’s the ire? Where’s the anger?
Why does Obama still have his job? Come on America… you were blatantly lied to!

Obamacare is like a tradesman going to the dealership to get a stripped down van with shelves and ladder racks, only to be forced to buy a conversion van with all the trim.

Paying more for something you don’t need, and can’t use.
