You want to keep your current health care plan? Good luck with that!

How many times during the health care debate did we hear Obama say if you like your current health care plan, you will be able to keep it?  Well, like so many things in ObamaCare now that it has passed, turns out to be a big fat lie. 
Investors Business Daily: Internal administration documents reveal that up to 51% of employers may have to relinquish their current health care coverage because of ObamaCare.
Small firms will be even likelier to lose existing plans.
The "midrange estimate is that 66% of small employer plans and 45% of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfathered status by the end of 2013," according to the document.
In the worst-case scenario, 69% of employers — 80% of smaller firms — would lose that status, exposing them to far more provisions under the new health law.
The 83-page document, a joint project of the departments of Health and Human Services, Labor and the IRS, examines the effects that ObamaCare's regulations would have on existing, or "grandfathered," employer-based health care plans. [MORE]
Anyone who took the time to actually check what was in ObamaCare knew that the chances of keeping your current plan were slim to none. ObamaCare was not designed to fix the problems of our current healthcare system; instead ObamaCare was designed to bring about its demise. The whole goal of ObamaCare is to leave the single payer health care system as the only viable option once ObamaCare is done wrecking havoc on the current system.

Here is the link to the 83-page document. Check out page 36, it will show you how “grandfathered” plans will react to ObamaCare.

Eventually, the only way to obtain quality care will be to pay for it personally. barack hussein obama campaigned as the champion of the little guy, but all obamacare will do is widen the gap between rich and poor.

Empowering free enterprise tends to widen the playing field but socialists and communists can't accept that. Meanwhile, they use our own tax money to bribe us into accepting more government control.

It's insane.

Obamacare is all about ensuring Democrat rule forever. The model is the British NHS system. That is the third largest organization in the world after the Indian railways and the Chinese army. The NHS is unionized and a solid block vote for the socialist Labor party. That's what the Democrats want; a massive bureaucracy that will vote en masse for the party that created it.
