ObamaCare Lies And Cancellation Estimates Grow By The Day

[ooyala code=”03eWpzZzqOrmxNNmZI1ra-8_rEAzyYyo” player_id=”undefined”]

Amid new reports the White House made a political calculation to lie to the American people,  President Obama is adding layers to the ObamaCare lies. Speaking to a group of supporters, the president claimed, “Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.”

In full crisis mode, President Obama doubled-down on more ObamaCare lies to cover for his broken promise regarding his repeated statements that, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period. End of story.”

That is simply untrue, and a new Wall Street Journal report claims a debate between White House policy officials and the Obama political team ensued over the what is now the statement at the center of the president’s broken promise.

According to the WSJ, White House policy experts told the president and his political advisors that he could not make that statement without knowingly lying to the American people. However, in the middle of an embattled reelection effort, the policy advisors simply lost the argument, and the decision was made to lie about millions of Americans being able to keep their policies and doctors.

New studies coming out daily are getting closer to the estimates in our PPD study, and a new study by healthcare economist Christopher Conover at the Center for Health Policy & Inequalities Research at Duke University, found that an estimated 129 million people could lose their previous health coverage due to a combination of factors including the cancellations of existing plans as well as changes and “improvements” to existing coverage that will be required under ObamaCare.

“Bottom line: of the 189 million Americans with private health insurance coverage, I estimate that if Obamacare is fully implemented, at least 129 million (68 percent) will not be able to keep their previous health care plan either because they already have lost or will lose that coverage by the end of 2014,” Conover said.

People’s Pundit Daily first reported after releasing our study that 145 million Americans would lose their health care plans, and Conover is the latest to release numbers that are getting closer to our figures. While Conover estimates “at least 129 million,” PPD stands by our figure, which we were actually hoping to be wrong.

Sadly, that doesn’t appear to be the case.
