The Obamacare Lie!

What, you mean you didn't think he was lying from the start about his boondoggle of a healthcare plan? You mean you really though President Obama was sincere when he said, "if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan"? Are we ever going to learn as voters that politicians will just say what they want you to hear so they can get your vote?

Unfortunately for many who believed including some 100,000 New Jersey residents, the Obamacare promise from the Dear Great Leader is turning out to be a bald faced lie. A plan known as the B&E plan for "basic and essential" that costs members as little as $150 a month will be stopped because it doesn't meet the regulations of the Affordable Care Act which include some services that force individual health insurance plans to provide.

Welcome to the next stage of Socialism in the USA.

Read more below from National Review and then watch the Obama promise of being able to keep your healthcare plan after that:

The latest casualty of Obamacare may be a low-cost New Jersey health-care policy. Though President Obama promised “if you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period,” that will not be the case for approximately 106,000 New Jersey residents whose plans will disappear under the law.

Known as the “basic and essential,” or B&E, health-care plans, the policy costs as little as a couple hundred dollars per month and is the choice of 71 percent of New Jersey residents on the individual insurance market. It provides minimum coverage for things such as doctor’s visits and procedures that don’t involve a hospital stay. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, B&E policy holders will, under Obamacare, “be left with may be a choice among pricey, pricier and priciest” plans.

Currently, the monthly plans go for $150 for a 25-year-old male or $1,100 for a family with parents in their 40s and, as Rutgers University’s Center for State Health Policy director Joel Cantor told the Star-Ledger, it would cost three or four times more for a standard policy on the individual market.

So what happened to the B&E plans? They don’t meet the regulations imposed by the Affordable Care Act because they do not cover services that the law will force every individual health-insurance plan to provide. The Star-Ledger reports that B&E customers who don’t qualify for a federal tax credit to purchase insurance “will see price increases” in the cost of their next plan.

Oh no, this wasn't a complete lie, not at all:
