Mainstream media waited until after 2012 election to report on Obama’s July 2010 admission that Obamacare would cause people to lose their insurance
On October 28, 2013, NBC News reported:
Obama admin. knew millions could not keep their health insurance
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”
That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Yet President Obama, who had promised in 2009, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
So the Obama administration admitted in July 2010 that Obamacare would cause people to lose their insurance.
But the mainstream media waited until after the 2012 election to report this information.
Of course to anyone who understands logic, it was obvious that Obamacare would cause people to lose their insurance. Obamacare requires all policies to cover pre-existing conditions, maternity care, treatment for heroin addiction, and several other specific things. Any policy that does not already cover these things is rendered illegal by Obamacare, so of course such policies would be canceled as a result of Obamacare. That’s just simple logic.
By waiting until after the 2012 election to report on something that the Obama administration admitted in July 2010, the mainstream media has revealed its pro-Obama bias.
