I never thought I would see a story like this from the likes of NBC News. But now even liberals are catching on to what us radical terrorist racist bigoted extremist right-wing tea partiers have been telling you for years about Obamacare.
In short, the Obama Administration has known “for at least three years” that Obamacare would cause millions to lose their health insurance plans. Yet…
Yet President Obama, who had promised in 2009, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
And millions losing their plans is not a bug, it’s a feature, courtesy of Obama and Obamacare:
None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date -- the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example -- the policy would not be grandfathered.
This means one of two things – Obama willfully told us a Big Lie about Obamacare supposedly letting us keep our health insurance plans, or he is so clueless and detached that he did not know what his own signature law and his own administration was doing. If he was that clueless and really cares about the situation, he will soon come out and insist that Obamacare be administered so that his promise will be somehow, in a fashion, kept. If.
But, for now, the Big Lie technique is the modus operandi:
FACT: Nothing in #Obamacare forces people out of their health plans. No change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans.

This idea was getting resoundingly mocked last night on Twitter, even among lefty journos I know. The thing about lies is they have to be at least plausible. The only people buying this are people who know nothing about what Obamacare actually does; now that includes a lot of low-info voters . . . but not a lot of people covering the law.
And one reason I am including this post in my Downfall series is that it now appears even the “Mainstream” News Media – even NBC! – is getting tired of drinking and dispensing Obama’s kool-aid. Instead of continually assisting Obama in his cover-ups and spin, they are beginning to commit actual journalism. Should that continue and increase, it will not be good for the future of the Obama Regime.
Downfall is an ongoing series anticipating and tracking what I expect will be the self-destruction of Obama.
