Leaked Gov reports shows approx. 51% of employers will be forced to offer Obama Care!
How many times did Obama promise that "if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it?" The White House is STILL saying that statement is true. The title of a blog post on the White House web site by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius on Monday repeats "Keeping the plan you like." Perhaps Sibelius should have added "but only if you are a member of a labor union."
An internal government report leaked to House Republicans last week tells the real story. (PDF of full report) On page 50 of the report the midrange assumption (could be higher) is that by 2012 51% of "small employers" and 33% of "large employers" will lose the grandfathered status protecting their current plan forcing them to accept Obama Care. Those numbers only increase with time.
But the health plans of labor unions will be exempt.
Here's the full story:
On September 9, 2009, Obama addressed a Joint Session of Congress and warned that "If you misrepresent what's in the plan, we will call you out."
Well Obama, I'm calling YOU out! And in 2012 the American people are going to THROW you out!
