"If you like your health care plan, you can keep it. Period." That lie becomes more bold every day as documents trickle out that the President knew very well that his oft quoted promise was shrieked simply to deceive.
Today, reports about internal White House discussions on employer health care plans estimated that "half to two-thirds of small businesses would have policies canceled or be compelled to send workers onto the ObamaCare exchanges."
There are approximately 157 million people with employer-based insurance in our nation. If half of them lost their coverage, that would total 78.5 million. And that would be the low-estimate by the White House. If two-thirds lost their insurance, it would be 103.6 million people, or about a third of the entire population of the United States.
Approximately five million people have had their insurance cancelled already thanks to the Affordable Care Act. These numbers dwarf the amount of people that have successfully signed up for new coverage, which is a scant 100,000.
To put that into perspective, if one hundred million people lost their insurance because of ObamaCare, that would mean for every one person who gained insurance because of it, 1,000 people lost theirs.
But hey, the President said the Affordable Care Act was more than just the website. Remember, it's also millions losing coverage and being lied to repeatedly.
And a lucky few have also had their identities stolen. If this is not a case against what the government should be able to control, I don't know what is.
