Obamacare author says it will cause most employers to stop offering insurance

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people… If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

A video of Obama making this promise more than 20 different times can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCUpJDzyRnY

However, just now – four years after Obama signed Obamacare, and more than a year after the 2012 election, the New York Times is reporting that one of the authors of Obamacare is saying that it will cause most employers to stop offering insurance. The New York Times reports:

Why Employers Will Stop Offering Health Insurance

March 26, 2014

Here’s a prediction: By 2025, “fewer than 20 percent of workers in the private sector will receive traditional employer-sponsored health insurance.” The source of this claim? Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, in his just-published book, “Reinventing American Health Care.”

Dr. Emanuel is an accomplished oncologist, medical ethicist and academic (and contributing opinion writer to The New York Times). And, of course, he’s no stranger to politics: He helped craft the Affordable Care Act as a health policy adviser to the Obama administration, when his brother, Rahm, now the mayor of Chicago, was chief of staff.

… he argues, the so-called Cadillac tax on especially generous health plans, set to take effect in 2018, will help pave the way by discouraging companies from offering those plans.

This is typical of the sneaky, underhanded, lying Obama and his entire administration. In order to get a law passed, and in order to get elected, Obama lies about what he will do in the future. Then in the future, only after the legislation has passed, and only after Obama has won the election, do we find out the truth.

It’s also typical of the biased, Obama supporting, mainstream media, which refused to analyze the Obamacare legislation to discover this information on their own.  If the New York Times had done its job properly, they would have had their legal experts read and analyze the Obamacare legislation four years ago, and would have reported at that time that it would cause most employers to stop offering insurance. But the New York Times did not do its job. Instead, they allowed Obama to go unchallenged in his repeated lies that people could keep their insurance. And now that the New York Times is finally reporting this information, it’s too late for anyone to do anything about it – Obamacare has already passed, and Obama has already run in as many elections as he is allowed.

    I really do not care WHAT Obama says…I would not trust his words if he told me that the sky was blue and the grass was green.
    He is like the little boy that cried wolf to many times, and the only people that trust his words are the brainwashed Liberals that have no rhyme or reasoning.
