I Take No Pleasure in Saying I Told You So

According to Investors Business Daily:

Internal administration documents reveal that up to 51% of employers may have to relinquish their current health care coverage because of ObamaCare.

Small firms will be even likelier to lose existing plans.

The "midrange estimate is that 66% of small employer plans and 45% of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfathered status by the end of 2013," according to the document.
What?!  You mean you're not likely to keep your current plan?  But that's not what Obama promised!

Where have I seen that before?   Maybe here, or here, or here, or here, or here, or here, here, here, and there's probably more but isn't that enough?

What was that Joe Wilson said, again?

(H/T:  Memeorandum)

And Joe apologized. I bet that left a nasty taste in his mouth. This government is despicable.

I wonder if word will ever get to the Ph.D. who told me gleefully just two weeks ago that we now have "universal health care."

It is very sad, as many people are still believing that they'll be covered without extra expense. :-(

Think about it, we can't afford Medicare. We don't pay hardly any of the expenses incurred by Medicaid. Most of the cost that you have seen in your insurance plans has been to pick up the short fall from the government programs. Doctors have had their fees cut consistently for the last 20 years (and are sick of it). Hospitals are doing fair, but their is little slack for them if money is tight. The fact is that Obamacare will be a catastrophe. Unfortunately we will not see it immediately, only after five years or so. In short, we are in trouble and the passage of this bill is the beginning of the end or our society.

Oh WOW, a politician has lied to us--who would have ever thought this could happen? Of course the same employers could drop or change the coverage of their employees even if the reforms had not been passed.
The only people who have secure healthcare insurance are the members of Congress, and other government employees.
