Has this been posted yet? NBC, of all sources. Much more at the link, I would rate it at a notch or two this side of "scathing."

President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.

Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”

None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date -- the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example -- the policy would not be grandfathered.

Last night on CNN Wolf the idiot blitzer was even giving the anointed one a case of the ass over this. I was shocked.

Really, he lied

There was an NBC article about this, that really gave them some shit. Then for some reason, It got pulled, and when it reappeared, it was edited.

Here it is

I'm glad (and a bit surprised) to see that they're actually focusing on a part of the actual problem, rather than just bitching about how bad the website is.

My link appears to still have "pre-glitch" content (the "none of this should come as a shock" paragraph).

ETA: Apparently NBC edited it back in? Weird.

Of course he did, and so it everyone else. Even the brain dead zombies who voted for him knew it, they just chose not to believe it.

and shared it with everyone

You know, it has been said before but I'll say it again... I have no idea how Jay Carney sleeps at night, with the amount of lies that little fucker is forced cover and weasel out of to cover his boss' ass. I am glad that even the liberal media is covering this story, this is a big deal and even the "low-informed" and people who "aren't political" need to know about it. Hopefully people can wake up and realize they are being screwed but I am not holding my breath.

Edit: I read the Yahoo article (actually written by a Yahoo "reporter") on it this morning and this was the last two paragraphs after Carney's statement:

"Actually, what the president said back in 2009 was "[the Affordable Care Act] is for people who aren’t happy with their current plan. If you like what you’re getting, keep it. Nobody is forcing you to shift."

Only now, some who like their plans are being forced, including Laszewski. According to NBC News, he has a so-called "Cadillac plan" — "the best health insurance policy you can buy," he said — but recently received notice in the mail that it was being canceled."

I love that they actually call that little weasel out.

Sticker shock is an understatement. If I were to use the exchange, my monthly payment goes from $120/mo to $728/mo.

Anyone with an IQ over 45 knew that...which is why this is news to obama voters.

lol lets see:

- AHA requires coverage of shit that isnt in several plans...obvious fucking result. Some plans will be cancelled.
- Insure a bunch of freeloaders, add a bunch of unnecessary shit to everyone's plans, and manage it with a huge fucking bureaucracy... obvious fucking result costs increase.

Everyone knew this, which is why we've been try to repeal this shit and calling the incompetent retard in office a liar.

His health insurance plan, paid for by the American tax payer covers things like sleep aids and he doesn't have to pay a dime out of pocket for them either.

Just drink the fool aid and move on

This "2 million" number floating around is hogwash. It's more than that.

A lying fucking liar who continually fucking lies told another fucking lie?

Say it isn't so!

A shame they couldn't have figured this out last year....
Of course, they knew then, they were on his side.
Now things are different, so their paths have diverged.
Obama will sail off into the sunset in January 2017.
The media needs to preserve their ability to lie to us.
They begin to tell the truth just a little too late...
...so they can more convincingly lie again later for Hillary.

Yea, but think about how much fun it could be to go out and lie your ass off every day. Or making stuff up and passing it off as fact.

the hilda-beast is waiting in the wings to 'fix' this and all other problems with owe-bama care. Obviously fascist fuck sticks like her have very different ideas of what constitutes a fix. May unlimited fuck be upon all of them.

Really? The Scumbag in Chief is a fucking liar? No way!

I want a no frills policy. High deductible (3-5k), no coverage for sniffles and minor shit, no maternity, no BS. Just protection from major medical catastrophe at a price I can afford and/or want to pay. And there are (were) companies willing and able to provide that. Now, they can't sell it and I can't purchase it, essentially forcing me to go without, thanks to the fucking government do gooders and busy bodies. Do me a favor, stop trying to help, just leave me the fuck alone and stop fucking with my shit.

FBHO and fuck the socialists and closet communists running this pathetic government. And fuck the FSA, too.

I wonder how many will forget this by the time the elections roll around in a year.
