Obama: "I Am Sorry" Americans Will Lose Their Existing Health Plan Because Of Obamacare

Tyler Durden's picture


Remember all those YouTube clips (the same medium used to nearly justify World War III) that caught the president lying again and again with promises and assurances everyone would be able to keep their existing insurance plan under Obamacare even though he knew full they wouldn't, until a week ago, thanks to what is left of the non-brownnosing media, as much was revealed to the general public? Well, it's time to come clean, and once again via clip. Moments ago, in an interview with NBC, the charming and very photogenic president said he was "sorry."

"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," Obama told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House. "We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this."

Surely a good start to make sure "they know they are heard" is for nobody to lose their job over this fiasco, even those who claim full responsibility for the "debacle."

As for apologies, perhaps it would be more prudent to wait until 2014 when the true costs of this latest welfare Ponzi scheme are revealed for all to see and experience: then it will be a daily tirade of non-stop apologies. So let's just chalk today down to a general rehearsal.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

There, there, Obama. All is forgiven. Just please tell Mr. Chairwoman to keep pushing that Nasdaq to its old time highs. Because who knows - without the daily distraction from the economic collapse this country finds itself in, an apology just may no longer be sufficient...

What Barry didn't say >>>>>>>

a)   I knew this was going to happen and decided to fuck the sheeple in the ass anyway.

b)   I've always known why absolutely none of the Red Team voted for my communist manifesto but since Soros bought me a Peace Prize and the media too I could give a fuck about the sheeple.

c)   Yeah, I knew all about it and I'm still President. So fuck off!

d)   It's Bush's fault. Let's talk about immigration reform, or as Hillary likes to call it, The next great fleecing of America.

e)  Why do you think we call them sheeple?

Shall we now move on to the other promise that "The average US family will save about $2500 pa in pemiums". I recommend that the Repugs just let ACA be because it will implode all by itself with a net  result of FEWER Americans insured, MUCH higher costs for all which will be unaffordable to many and more enrolled in Medicare/Medicaid. Guess who will pay for the latter?

Paul Krugman is proposing that the government provide full time, full benefit jobs to those of working age that don't already have such government jobs, which would not only reduce unemployment, but resolve this ObamaCare fiasco, since tens of millions more than the present 23 million government workers would then have Mercedes health care plams & gold plated benefits & pensions, too.

The best part is that it can be financed by using platinum trillion dollar coins, minted & deposited monthly.

Krugman doesn't get paid the big bucks, have his own op/ed on the NYT, a professorship at Princeton and win prizes for nothing, don't ya' know.

thats what you get though when you make the president of your country a guy named barack obama.  i mean wtf?  what kind of fucking name is that for the president of theunited states?  third world name, third world president, now third world country.  you get what you pay for.

Obama and his empty speech:


In 2011, when S&P downgraded the credit rating of the U.S. for the first time in our country’s history, President Obama gave another speech. It was a good speech, as far as speeches go—he is an outstanding speaker. But that speech was all President Obama did. Therefore the national debt grew bigger, and the cost to insure it against default rose from an average of 25 basis points to 55 points.

Soon after the barbaric assassination of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three of his subordinates inside our diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, carried out on the symbolic date of September 11 by certified Islamic terrorists, President Obama gave another speech. It was another good speech, but speeches alone do not prevent terrorism. The subsequent 2013 terrorist attack during the Boston Marathon was followed by one more presidential speech. “Homegrown extremists. This is the future of terrorism,” the president proclaimed. All we needed to do was close down Guantanamo and make a slight change in how we used drone airplanes.

A few months ago, when the terrorist government of Syria killed some 1,300 people with chemical weapons, President Obama gave several speeches. But speech-making is all he did, and that allowed Putin’s KGB, now installed in the Kremlin, to take over the handling of our policy toward Syria. A few days ago, when Obamacare’s website collapsed, the president reacted with one more speech, assuring the country that Obamacare “is working just fine. In some cases, actually, it’s exceeding expectations.” The Washington Post‘s Ezra Klein said the speech was almost identical to one he could have given if the launch’s rollout had gone smoothly. He was right. It was just another glasnost speech.

Mr.Transparency didn't count on people actually reading the bill to see whats in it or following up on what regulations were to be developed for it.

Obama is the president, as president he is over the "regulators". The regulators write the regulations that make the "law" work. HHS reports to him.

Page 34,560...everyone will eventually lose private health insurance as we know it, if the "law" stays in force:



Ahhh, we have a wandering gnome in our midst from HuffPo.

Well, I will assume you don't like bailing out "big biz"...yes?

Read it and weep:


"Risk adjustment and reinsurance both require profitable health plans to share risk with unprofitable ones. As exchange insurers take on thousands of new patients of unknown risk, the provisions prevent any one plan from collapsing right out of the gate based on dumb luck.

All the money for reinsurance and risk adjustment comes from insurers, but the risk corridor is different. At the corridor's center is the point at which a health insurance plan breaks even after paying for patients' care and allowable administrative costs.

If an exchange plan's performance varies in either direction by more than 3 percent, it either collects a subsidy from federal taxpayers via the Department of Health and Human Services to recoup part (50 to 80 percent) of further losses, or it has to kick back a similar share of the excess profit.

Ideally, the money kicked back by profitable health plans can cover the subsidies for plans that lose. But unlike with the other two R's, there is no legal requirement that the numbers balance or limit on what can be paid.

So imagine that we do enter a “death spiral” situation in which a large number of exchange health plans lose big and very few turn sizable profits. This could result from a delay of the individual mandate (reducing incentive to sign up); or from the current open enrollment period being extended (during which the uninsured can literally sign up for insurance on the way to the hospital); or from lack of interest among the healthy uninsured; or from faulty websites deterring all but the most desperate from enrolling."

Better get busy signing up the young & healthy who don't want or need health insurance and strip mining their meager earnings to make this puppy work.

They're young (remember?) just starting out in their lives, practically zero assets and on the bottom of the pay scale...and now you're going to ream them for "health insurance"?

Good luck wif dat ;-)

The Dim Senators are scared shitless over the blow back from this.  They know what's coming.

If Harry Reid would allow a vote, the whole damn thing would go down in flames,

But that would be democracy.

They called me. The RNC. After Christie won and Cuccinelli lost.

They had the nerve to call me.

I told them 3 words into their scripted manifesto: screw you, just like you did Cuccinelli. Take me off your list. And then hung up.

I'm done. War with the base? I'm about to shake hands with a 99%'er. We're all in the same boat but we've been told to hate each other. Middle class? What middle class? Say that and you're "oppressing" those that use SNAP cards for food.

School vouchers? You're oppressing (fill in the blank group here) for your privilege life style. Home school b/c you don't want to learn about the communist manifesto or Mao's red book at age 5? What kind of parent are you?????

Don't want to give the big banks or the big corporations a tax break? Must be a liberal.

Like I said - there's nobody for small business and middle class. We've become the United States of Corporate Oligarchies. Its them vs. the base.

What does that even mean? It's okay that he lied, because he's going to hear the complaints of the people he lied to? How is he going to "deal" with folks who have had their insurance canceled because of the mandates in his law? I would love to see a poll "Do you believe anything Obama says?"

That might actually mean something if we had real journalists who would doggedly follow up on it and make him explain exactly what he's going to do. But all the sycophant MSM has it's collective nose so far up Oblamer's ass, he knows he can get away scott free on that claim.

What really pisses me off is the way they make it sound like this is just a tiny portion of the population and these people don't really matter in the grand scheme of things.

Well, they do matter, they're gonna get desperate and telling them how insignificant they are seems to be really poor management of the whole deal.

And it isn't like the problem is not going to grow.  They're just dealing with the self-employed first.
