ObamaCare: “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”
That is, of course, unless the plan you like isn’t one that ObamaCare allows.
Steven F. Hotze, a Katy-based allergist and immunologist, says the Affordable Care Act, popularly called Obamacare, forces his wellness center to pay enormous costs for its 73 employees.
Oh, wait. Sorry. That’s a clip about how ObamaCare is too expensive for small companies (and large companies). But since we’re here, wasn’t the law supposed to make health care less expensive? Gee, if only there were people out there saying that the law wasn’t going to reduce costs and even, gasp, raise them. Anyway:
The problem, said Hotze, is that the Affordable Care Act is forcing his small business to choose between either exorbitant per-employee penalties or exorbitant costs for health coverage the employees don’t want.
Right now Hotze and his employees rely on health savings accounts, but Obamacare would require them to move into government-approved plans with higher premiums and fewer options.
So, the “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” thing was yet another lie told by the Obama administration, Democrats in Congress, and repeated unblinkingly by the media.
It’s almost like all three had an agenda that wasn’t based on facts or something. Weird.
The only people who were debating ObamaCare in good faith were the conservatives who predicted every single flaw in the selling points being pushed by the left and used facts and historical data to do it. But as we all know, facts and historical data don’t mean much to “progressives.” It’s all about feelings and emotion.
ObamaCare is a disaster. I hope the American public holds the Democrat party accountable and rejects the progressive agenda like they did in 2010. Obama’s re-election doesn’t give my a lot of hope, though. But there’s always a chance.
