    Remember the NBC article (posted here on CU)? NBC took it down but then was forced to repost it after being nabbed by bloggers. This blog post explains why it was taken down in the first place.



    Professional Propaganda – Why NBC, The White House, Valerie Jarrett, and Democrats are Twitchy About Millions of Cancelled Insurance Plans…..


    ......So NBC, carrying water for the administration, took down their article and replaced it with another one with a paragraph removed. But various blogs, including us, caught them. Backlash ensued. They were busted – so they replaced the replacement and reinstated the original.

    But the key aspect is inside the paragraph they removed and the *risk* to the White House which is evident within it. Here’s what they took out, then put back in when caught:

    …”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”….

    You can immediately see the sunlight risk. The Obama Administration, through the HHS, were actually the people who structured the regulations which has led to cancellations of millions of policies. Weaselzippers accurately puts it this way:


    [Obamacare] the law doesn’t actually dictate the cancellation of the policies, the cancellations are dictated by the HHS regulations, narrowing the law.

    Regulations are completely and utterly within the power and control of HHS, Obama and the executive branch. What that means is they could change it if they wanted to, and that it was completely their choice to do this, despite Obama lying about it.

    They dictated these cancellations because they want to drive people into the exchanges, because it is the only possible way to monetarily sustain the system, or it would collapse under its own weight.


    So while Obama is lying to people, he is completely dictating the cancellations through his administration.

    This is the twisted nature of the President we have.

    I love it when they get embarassed when caught. Good work exposing the lies. I think it's gettng to the point that perhaps one day even the low information voter will catch on--when i costs them more for insurance. They might not care about Benghazi, but do care if their premiums rocket up in price.

    It all doesn't matter people. In the end, the grabbers are going to vote Democrat no matter what. The majority of Democrat voters aren't the ones getting hurt here. Sure some are but most aren't. Most are going to be the ones who are going to benefit from this. Most are going to get subsidized healthcare and with parents having to carry kids until they're 26, a lot are not going to feel the sticker shock until after Obama is out of office and the Dems have re-took control of the House and solidified the Senate.
