Comments on: Obama’s apology (of sorts) for his “keep your plan” promise http://blogs.reuters.com/reihan-salam/2013/11/08/obamas-apology-of-sorts-for-his-keep-your-plan-promise/ Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:10:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: AZreb http://blogs.reuters.com/reihan-salam/2013/11/08/obamas-apology-of-sorts-for-his-keep-your-plan-promise/#comment-806 Thu, 14 Nov 2013 12:26:22 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/reihan-salam/?p=470#comment-806 Robert Reich’s article in HP today states that Obama “misled” people. Here we go again – we need a new dictionary for “government speak”:

mislead – lie
least untruthful statement – lie
transparency – no definition since it doesn’t exist

Most often, his base finds a way to hide behind Obstruction or Bush43 but the truth is there for those who take the time to look.
He simply isn’t who many wanted him to be.

Car dealers and mortgage brokers are fined and/or jailed for false promises to buyers leading to services not wanted and higher fees than agreed upon.

Athletes in various sports have their careers ended and records undone for use of performance enhancing drugs.

Should politians not be held to same level of accountability where in this case Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and many others said (1) ACA is not a tax but Supreme Court found it is constitutional only because it is a tax (2) You can keep your plan PERIOD. (3) Employer sponsored plans will not be affected by ACA but my employer sponsored plan just received a letter that several ACA fees on all insured members will add 4% surcharge on premiums in 2014?

Based on the misrepresentation or plain lies to win a vote for ACA and to win an election, Obama and others should be impeached or dismissed from office using same standards that apply to others who are not politicians.

Why can’t the liberals and any Democrat simply tell the truth? Obama LIED and LIED and LIED and he KNEW he was lying and now after being caught, Democrats and their blind supporters cannot seem to admit the truth and how dare anyone call that miss-mash softball interview by NBC an apology by Obama? Can’t these people for ONCE get out of bed with Obama and at least for once in their life tell the TRUTH?

I’ve been insured there for years and love the plan. I’m 33 healthy and live in CO (one of the healthiest states in the nation). I now have the option to buy a plan on connect4healthcolorado.com. I was paying $178/month and now will be paying $270/month. I had a $3000 deductible and will now have a $3500 deductible. I had a PPO allowing me to see a specialist without a referral from a primary care physician and will now have a HMO which requires a referral. Oh and I don’t qualify for any tax credits (because I’m a party of 1 making over $40,000). President Obama, I liked my plan and won’t get to keep it. Your apology is not accepted.

My insurance company has changed my plan every year except one in the past five years.

In the case of Obama care the idea was not just a horse put together by a committee, it was a camel put together by every special interest group congress could find.

In spite of the fact most old plans where very limited by things like “no existing condition cause”, limited no drug coverage, some sort death panel (cost approval panel). Congress decided stick in mental health care and drug conciliating in the initial offering requirements. People where not really ready or use to paying to for comprehensive physical ailment coverage. Naturally there will be objections. For starting a new plan the bear minimum should be a bear minimum but without the smoke in old system like a the “no preexisting condition” causes.

Both the good (ones that will continue)and bad plans before had the “no pore existing condition” cause. Which means the plans where no good for long term illness like heart disease and asthma, etc. So the public is gullible to all lying smiling faces not just to Washington.

I pay a premium, figuring I might need it; the insurance company agrees to a payout, figuring I probably won’t. If, indeed, I do, not only the cost of my insurance, but that of others may well go up. Interestingly, if a disaster occurs in a particular part of the country, the federal government steps up to pay with our taxes. Such a deal! Especially if you think you might be hit by a meteor…
