CBS: Obama Admin. Knew in 2010 That Millions Would Lose Health Plans



What's worthy of mention here isn't the information, which we already know, but rather that CBS, normally sycophantic to Obama, is finally doing some serious reporting on Obamacare.

quote:

Sharyl Attkisson uncovered another Obama administration falsehood about ObamaCare on Tuesday's CBS This Morning, spotlighting a 2010 document from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services which "estimated ObamaCare would collectively reduce the number of people with employer-sponsored health coverage by about 14 million". This is contrary to the White House's "repeated assurances that nothing will change for those insured through work".

Attkisson featured the cases of two small business owners who had to discontinue the health insurance plans for their employees, including a New Hampshire woman who "remains an avid ObamaCare supporter", despite the problems with HealthCare.gov

Anchor Norah O'Donnell teased the correspondent's report by trumpeting how "employees [are] losing their current company health benefits because of the Affordable Care Act – Sharyl Attkisson investigates what the government knew was coming." Minutes later, co-anchor Charlie Rose introduced the segment by noting that "CBS News is learning another promise by the government isn't holding up. Some of those who get their insurance through work are losing their coverage."

The CBS journalist continued that "the government estimated all along that millions of workers will be dropped from their employee insurance under the Affordable Care Act. And for some, it's already happening."

Sharyl Attkisson will get another screaming phone call from the WH like she did reporting F&F. Or will they spy on her computers or remove her from the press pool? She will certainly not be invited to Obama's closed door pow wow with the press.

I hope Sharyl has learned enough spy trade craft to keep her safe...

I wish these right wing zealots would stop with the phony scandals, already.

I mean, they've already established that everybody knew this would happen. Nobody believed POTUS when he said the opposite.

Isn't universal healthcare coverage worth a little (tiny, really) incorrect promise or misstatement?

Which is why the police around the nation are now stocked up with weapons and armory used in wars. Dear Leader is never to be questioned as He is the Truth.

I would worry about my health insurance if I was her. Things can happen to a now known enemy of the Messiah, just an accident waiting to happen. She just bumped Lara Logan off the front page for a day or two. I keep wondering as to when will the pimps at the NBCs stop blowing smoke up peoples asses, but there seems to be no limitation to the networks or the characters in front of the cameras with them.

Obama blamed a video for the deaths in Benghazi and that video maker is still in jail. People need to wake the frick up to what Obama is and it ain't good.

Its perfectly acceptable for an administration to lie and mislead to implement their agenda--as long as it's for a good cause. I mean... What could possibly go wrong?

And Bush stole the 2000 election?

Obama lied his way to a second term with the help of an obedient media.

Obama won the first go with the aid and assistance of the most vocally compliant media ever known to mankind. In 4.5 years it has not wavered one iota with nothing more that the recent wanderings off the scent trail of dog shite.


ETA these two can expect to be not at any of the holiday gatherings that should be on tap in the next few weeks. No one else wants to be in the dissenter file of the Messiah.
