An Untimely End
"If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what."
~ President Barack Obama
To use one of the president's favorite lines, "let me be clear"--he lied.
Just in time for the midterm elections, news arrives that more than a dozen additional healthcare policies are facing cancellation. It seems the plans are not in compliance with "Obamacare." Hundreds of thousands of people will be deprived of their preferred health insurance and forced into full-on Obamacare.
Sixty days notice is required for these mass cancellations, so the notifications must be made by November 1. This is federal law, so there's no way to weasel around the date requirement--although no doubt much effort was put into trying.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 4. Don't forget to vote!
