129,000,000 people will lose their healthcare under the Affordable Care Act?
"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period."
"If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, period". -Barack Obama
Obama has said these things time and time again, and it's all a big lie. Then tonight he comes out and said publicly that what he really meant was, as long as your plan doesn't change under the ACA.
Sixty-Eight percent of privately-insured Americans may not be able to keep their current health coverage once Obamacare is fully implemented, despite the president’s repeated promises that anyone who wanted to keep their plan would be able to do so, according to a Duke University health expert.
An analysis by healthcare economist Christopher Conover at the Center for Health Policy & Inequalities Research at Duke University found that an estimated 129 million people could lose their previous health coverage due to a combination of factors including the cancellations of existing plans as well as changes and “improvements” to existing coverage that will be required under the new healthcare law, The Daily Caller reported.
“Bottom line: of the 189 million Americans with private health insurance coverage, I estimate that if Obamacare is fully implemented, at least 129 million (68 percent) will not be able to keep their previous health care plan either because they already have lost or will lose that coverage by the end of 2014,” said Christopher Conover.
This is Nixonian and if Nixon was forced to resign over Watergate, then Obama should be forced to resign over Obamacare. Lies upon lies upon lies and in a 49 state analysis of the country, there will be a 41% increase in costs for healthcare.
Does this piss anyone else off? This is personal for people. How can he still have any favorability?
