Shortly after the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010, I knew, as an insurance agent, that any health insurance plan written after that date would be subject to cancellation in 2014.
Furthermore, if my customers made any changes to their plans after that date, they would no longer be considered “grandfathered” and their plans could also be canceled.
I knew, the insurance companies knew, and it is inconceivable that President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid didn’t know. They were the ones who wrote the bill!
Every time I heard President Obama or Nancy Pelosi say, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan, period,” I knew it wasn’t true.
They are now trying to qualify what they promised over and over again, but words do mean something and the word “period” means “period.”
The vulnerable Democrats in Congress are trying to distance themselves from this disastrous law like rats fleeing a sinking ship, but they voted for this bill in 2010, and they have continued to support it until now.
Remember, every Republican voted against the Affordable Care Act. This bill was written by and passed by a Democratic Congress and no matter how they try to spin the facts, the record stands.
