NYT: Obama Wrong About People Being Able To Keep Existing Health Coverage. No, Really?

Obama-Liar-LiarHey, Times.  The word is “LIED”.  Try using the correct words when talking about Obama.

Remember all those promises President Obama made assuring Americans that they’d be able to keep their current healthcare plans under reform legislation he was championing?

Well, the New York Times reported Sunday that could come at a huge additional cost to many that may be impractical.

Much more surprising is the Times pointed out that this wasn’t what Obama promised.

Although none of the following will shock those intelligent enough to see through the bait and switch as it was occurring, those in the media that aided and abetted this scam should be deeply ashamed:

 

As the Obama administration begins to enact the new national health care law, the country’s biggest insurers are promoting affordable plans with reduced premiums that require participants to use a narrower selection of doctors or hospitals.

The plans, being tested in places like San Diego, New York and Chicago, are likely to appeal especially to small businesses that already provide insurance to their employees, but are concerned about the ever-spiraling cost of coverage.

But large employers, as well, are starting to show some interest, and insurers and consultants expect that, over time, businesses of all sizes will gravitate toward these plans in an effort to cut costs.

The tradeoff, they say, is that more Americans will be asked to pay higher prices for the privilege of choosing or keeping their own doctors if they are outside the new networks. That could come as a surprise to many who remember the repeated assurances from President Obama and other officials that consumers would retain a variety of health-care choices.
