Latest policy shift delays individual mandate for those whose plans were canceled
The administration, clearly in panic mode, has a new scheme in the works, as Obama’s signature health care overhaul is exposed as a series of lies, security breaches and malfunctions.
The latest incarnation of the debacle is the offer of an exemption of Obamacare to the millions of people who lost their own insurance — the one Obama repeatedly promised we could all keep. This was exposed as a blatant lie after millions of people received notification from their insurance companies informing them their current policies did not meet coverage requirements of the so-called Affordable Care Act, and could no longer be offered.
Under the new dodge, Obama is urging insurers to expand offers of bare-bones health insurance plans to cover catastrophic care. This strategy will also allow people to self-determine if they are in a hardship situation.
The Obamacare mandate requires everyone to have health insurance or face a tax penalty. These latest exemptions are certain to intensify the confusion for consumers.
Instead of continuing exemptions, waivers and delays, Obama should provide all Americans relief from his failed socialist experiment. Forcing citizens to purchase a product they don’t want — one dictated by the federal government — or face sanctions from the Internal Revenue Service, violates basic principles of freedom.
U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), summed the situation up with these words, “The sad reality is that when the law takes effect [on] January 1, more Americans will be without coverage under Obamacare than one year ago.”
No wonder this latest poll shows 53% of Americans would like to see Obamacare repealed, while 67% want it delayed. Overall, by a 54-38 percent margin, people wish the health care law had never passed and the 2009 system were still in place.
