Editor’s Note – Despite the failures of the roll-out of the Healthcare.gov website, the millions who lost their plans already, the sticker shock, and the abysmal number of signups (all six on day one), the Democrats never, ever take responsibility for anything. Anything negative that is; remember how Obama and the team ‘spiked the football’ so often after SEAL Team VI took out Osama bin Laden?
The only thing we heard more often than that “gutsy call” on bin Laden was that you could keep your insurance policy if you liked it, along with your doctor and hospital. We were told so many things to sell that abomination called the PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) but we must remind those who support the bill still that it was a unilaterally approved bill (Democrats Only) and it does not live up to any of the hype. It is a total FRAUD!
In reality, this was “fraud in the inducement“, a felonious act:
Fraud in the inducement n. the use of deceit or trick to cause someone to act to his/her disadvantage, such as signing an agreement or deeding away real property. The heart of this type of fraud is misleading the other party as to the facts upon which he/she will base his/her decision to act.
Daily we see that the sycophants, surrogates and Obama himself continue the fraud in the inducement for his signature achievement. But, we must remember and drive the point home; this fraud was shoved down our throats solely by the Democrats. Not one single Republican ever voted for any of it, but now we see many Democrats actually separating themselves as much as possible because it is a ball-and-chain to many who are up for reelection.
CNN is now reporting on the facts, and even Bill Maher is actually calling out Debbie Wasserman-Schulz on it. But that does not stop the “growing chorus of claims that the Republicans sabotaged it”, watch the video from Fox News’ Meghan Kelly on this hypocrisy then read about the rule and the unanimous vote by Democrats that is directly responsible for all the cancellations:
CNN: Democrats Voted Unanimously for Rule that Led to Insurance Cancellations
By John Nolte of Breitbart
CNN reports that in September of 2010, in an attempt to let people keep their insurance plans, Senate Republicans tried to block the grandfather rule that is currently resulting in millions of Americans having their insurance policies cancelled. Democrats, including many who are facing re-election next year, unanimously voted to support the rule. The result, as we have seen, is two million already losing the insurance plan Obama repeatedly promised they could keep.
In its report, CNN points out that the whole point of the GOP efforts was to protect millions from losing their insurance. So what we have here is yet more proof that the GOP has been warning for years about this avoidable catastrophe, while the media and Democrats covered their ears and screamed happy talk.
In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it. …
On a party line vote, Democrats killed the resolution, which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year.
The bad news for Democrats is that every single Senate Democrat facing a tough 2014 reelection — Mary Landrieu, Jeanne Shaheen, Mark Pryor, Kay Hagan and Mark Begich — is now on record voting for a rule that will not only result in up to 20 million losing insurance they were happy with, but doing so after being warned that this would happen.
