White House to allow users to keep insurance under ObamaCare

The White House is going to allow people to keep their existing insurance policies in an attempt to head off a revolt among Democrats over ObamaCare. President Obama is expected to make the announcement at 11:35 a.m.

Soooo..

We can pick and choose which laws they want to enforce?

There will be a group who will push the removal of the penalty for not carrying insurance now.

Wait, why is Obama allowing the big bad insurance companies to give people back their crappy policies that ACA was supposed to protect them from?

How can you keep something that doesn't exist anymore? That's like saying you can have that glass of water that I just poured on the ground. There is no water anymore.

The only case where I can see this working is if a policy still exists because it was grandfathered, but an individual got kicked off of it because they bought into it after a 2010 or they changed their deductible or something that caused them to lose their individual grandfathered status.

How? How can you "make" this happen without repealing the whole damn law?

These fricking buffoons are acting like this is an outside problem, and only the government can fix it. The government propposed, created, and passed this clusterfrick. Only a repeal of government intervention will fix this.

Insurance companies are not going to just give back the people's policies that they were forced to cancel in the first place, without changing the law. Obamacare would have to fundamentally change in order for this to happen.

The fricking average idiot, and the liberal retards, won't understand this though. You'll have idiots like germandawg or a want or VB saying, "The president said you could keep your existing health plan. Therefore if no one gets to keep it, then it is on the insurance companies."

Mental gymnastics and a willing press will be key for this idiocy to be seen as a good thing. THE ONLY WAY OBAMACARE CAN BE FIXED IS A FULL REPEAL. Nothing less.

Additional link from the NY Post

quote:

A House Democrat with knowledge of the president’s plan said that the fix would allow insurance companies to renew plans that do not meet the higher standard of the new health care law for a year for existing policyholders, though they would be required to notify the policy holder of alternative available coverage options, as well any benefits they might lose by staying on their existing plan.


Darn, I won't have birth control or mammograms covered...

Yup. In 2 weeks the media and the left will be ignoring the 4.5 million who no longer have their old insurance coverage, nor can they get it back. They will be seen as casualties of war. I guaran-fricking-tee it.

The 4.5 million who were dropped will be ignored. They will be the Benghazi victims of Obamacare. What does it matter, anymore? The left will make an effort to push past this, and only a compliant media will let them.

Do these morons really think it's like an on-off switch? We're talking about 1/6th of the entire fricking U.S. economy. It's going to take a long arse time for the insurance companies now to get THIS debacle sorted out, not to mention all the other frick-ups and consequences from ACA.

The mental gymnastics these imbeciles have to go through to reach their conclusions and actions may be even more difficult to comprehend than the logistical hurdles of implementing their convoluted piece of shite legislation.

So will there be an admission that the creation and passing of this law was terribly mishandled?

He has to right? Considering recent events?

Oh wait...never mind.

He will say:

"If Republicans had spent more time working with us on this law instead of obstructing it, problems like this could have been avoided."

Never mind the fact that Democrats could have written the law literally any way they wanted it.

The President has lost ALL credibility.

He just destroyed what was left of healthcare in America. Independents will swing 70% away from Democrats in the next election and with a motivated GOP they will take back the Senate. Democrats will not come out to vote in the '14 midterms.

Republicans should talk about nothing but ObamaCare.
