Democrats are desperately engaged in damage control mode after Obamacare was revealed to be little more than a scam cooked up with mega-insurance corporations to fleece the American people at gunpoint and it was discovered millions of Americans will lose their coverage.
Democratic National Committee boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz was trotted out on Tuesday to muddy the waters and empathically state that Obama was not lying when he said Americans would be allowed to keep their existing healthcare plans.
She insisted that only three percent of Americans would be screwed out of their plans. It remains to be seen if anybody will actually believe the Florida Democrat. She made the claim on MSNBC.
“Bottom line: of the 189 million Americans with private health insurance coverage, I estimate that if Obamacare is fully implemented, at least 129 million (68 percent) will not be able to keep their previous health care plan either because they already have lost or will lose that coverage by the end of 2014,” health care economist Christopher Conover told The Daily Caller on Monday.
“The problem is that he said it at least 24 times, most of which occurred after his own rule-writers had estimated that 49-80 percent of small employer plans would have lost their grandfather status by 2013, along with 34-64 percent of large employer plans. The same rule estimated that each year 40 to 67 percent of non-group plans not already grandfathered would lose their grandfather status. Given how extensively presidential statements — especially to a joint session of Congress — are vetted and fact-checked, it is pretty inconceivable that President Obama was not aware that he was engaged in some degree of truth-twisting.”
Ms. Wasserman Schultz would like reality to go away and stop spoiling the scam, but it won’t. Here’s the latest desperate move by the Obamanoids:
