Friday Night News Dump: White House says 51 percent of company health plans won't meet Obamacare guidelines

Obama Lied - Again! You Cannot Keep Your Current Health Care

We can always count on this Administration to dump the bad news on a Friday night when most people aren't paying attention.  Here we go again.

From Sean Higgins and David Hogberg at Investors Busienss Daily (as cited in the Washinton Examiner)

Internal White House documents reveal that 51% of employers may have to relinquish their current health care coverage by 2013 due to ObamaCare. That numbers soars to 66% for small-business employers.

The documents — product of a joint project of the Labor Department, the Health and Human Services Department and the IRS — examine the effects new regulations would have on existing, or “grandfathered,” employer-based health care plans.

Draft copies of the documents were reportedly leaked to House Republicans earlier in the week. Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., posted them on his Web site Friday afternoon.  (View the full report here.)

Shock of shocks, even the Associated Press covered this story, I can't believe they didn't ignore it: The dishonesty that was used to sell the health care overhaul:

Over and over in the health care debate, President Barack Obama said people who like their current coverage would be able to keep it.

But an early draft of an administration regulation estimates that many employers will be forced to make changes to their health plans under the new law. In just three years, a majority of workers — 51 percent — will be in plans subject to new federal requirements, according to the draft.

Is anyone surprised to learn that Obama and the Democrats outright LIED to the American people, and continue to do so, in order to "sell" ObamaCare?  By hook or crook, each and every one of us will be forced into government rationed health care unless the Democrats are tossed from power this November, and we elect good Conservative candidates hell bent on repealing this obamanation of a law.

Remember in November!
