Anything more than a tweet?
From Obama's speech:
"Insurers can extend current plans that otherwise would be canceled into 2014 and Americans whose plans have been canceled can choose to re-enroll in the same kind of plan," Obama said. "This fix won't solve every problem for every person, but it's going to help a lot of people. Doing more would require work with Congress."
The WH veto threat issued yesterday:
The White House released a statement Thursday evening saying President Barack Obama would veto a bill introduced by Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich) which would allow individuals to keep their health plans that had been canceled under the Affordable Care Act.
"H.R. 3350 rolls back the progress made by allowing insurers to continue to sell new plans that deploy practices such as not offering coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, charging women more than men, and continuing yearly caps on the amount of care that enrollees receive," the statement reads. "The Administration supports policies that allow people to keep the health plans that they have. But, policies that reverse the progress made to extend quality, affordable coverage to millions of uninsured, hardworking, middle class families are not the solution."
Obama, benevolent ruler, will allow us to keep our plans for another year, can't do more as it would require Congress to make a change in the law.
Obama will veto any change in the law.
IOW, we can keep our plans ONLY IF the insurance companies break the law (ACA) by offering the plans they offered previously.
Otherwise we can do the same thing as before he gave the damned speech: buy new, more expensive/higher deductible plans with superfluous coverage.
Black man spoke with forked tongue.
