BOOM! Justice Depart files court briefing admitting Obamacare will end MOST employer health plans


After promising Americans that they could keep their health insurance plans, President Obama now erroneously claims that only 5% of Americans will lose their plans under Obamacare.  However, the Justice Department just filed a brief in court saying that up to 80% of employer-provided health insurance plans will lose their grandfathered status be forcibly cancelled under Obamacare’s regulations. 
from NRO:
According to the administration’s numbers, nearly 80 million additional Americans, “a majority” of those on employer-sponsored health plans, may also be out of luck.
“It is projected that more group health plans will transition to the requirements under the regulations as time goes on,” DOJ lawyers wrote in response to court challenge to the law’s requirement that insurance plans provide coverage of contraception. “Defendants have estimated that a majority of group health plans will have lost their grandfather status by the end 2013.”
The DOJ cites the June 17, 2010, edition of the Federal Register, which acknowledges that within the first year of Obamacare’s employer mandate, the insurance plans offered by many employers will be canceled because their policies will not be grandfathered under the administration’s regulations. ”The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small-employer plans and 45 percent of large-employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,” the Register says. “The low-end estimates are for 49 percent and 34 percent of small and large-employer plans, respectively, to have relinquished grandfather status, and the high-end estimates are 80 percent and 64 percent, respectively.”

This is President Obama’s own Department of Justice, using the Obama administration’s own numbers.  

President Obama continues to lie to the American people on a daily basis. He knows that Obamacare’s central function is to push people onto new government-run plans. This is by design. It is how Obamacare works.

The bottom line is this: you will not be able to keep your health plan…period.  You can keep whatever plan Obama says you can keep until he says you can’t.
