Oof: MyCancellation.com

The ladies over at Independent Women’s Voice have launched a Tumblr-style website dedicated to showcasing victims of the president’s most infamous Obamacare lie.  You can’t necessarily keep your plan, and the White House knew as much all along.  David Freddoso marvels at just one of the growing roster of examples:

As Erika noted on Saturday, the Associated Press published a brutal story about middle class sticker shock, highlighting a Pennsylvania couple in the lede. The Griffins received a cancellation letter that broke four (!) of Obama’s pledges in one fell swoop:  They’ll pay much more for arguably worse care, while being unable to keep their long-time doctors, due to being thrown off of their current coverage.  The tales of dropped or altered coverage and increasing costs are just beginning — within both the individual and employer-based markets.  Democrats are already freaking out about another round of ugly headlines that appear to be conveniently scheduled for…October 2014:

Senate Democrats facing reelection next year aren’t just fretting about a balky website and President Barack Obama’s misleading campaign statements on health care. Now they’ve begun worrying about another deadline a year away. According to an Affordable Care Act timetable established by administration officials, early next October insurance companies will announce their new menu of health care plans for the ACA marketplaces — plans that may be more varied and numerous than those offered this year, but that almost certainly will come with higher prices. The likely price hikes will hit the individual and small-business insurance markets only weeks before Election Day on Nov. 4, 2014. “What genius came up with that timetable?” asked one key Democrat, who declined to be quoted by name because he is involved in private White House talks. Democratic senators and their political advisers have been lobbying the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services to push back the next “open season” date until after the election, to no avail.

The same ‘geniuses’ who voted to remake one-sixth of the US economy against the wishes of most Americans, repeatedly issued high-profile promises they had no intention of keeping, rolled-out an embarrassment of a website that they knew wasn’t functional, and rejected numerous (and desperately needed) Republican offers to delay implementation.  That’s who.

Well yeah but… teaparty still racist for being against this. Let’s not forget what’s important here.

I’ve been thinking about going into the pitchfork and torch business. With tar and feathers as a sideline.

brutal. and bravo for whoever is behind this.

I’m still being told by lefty Huffer commenters that ALL the plans being canceled are just junk plans. These geniuses have no clue about the shitstorm brewing.

It’s The Law A Trap!

You would think that the Dems would be trying to counter this by pointing out the millions of people with pre-existing conditions or non-existent coverage that can now be covered. Affordably.

Problem is, many with pre-existing are also seeing their policies dropped & the the majority of non-existents didn’t want coverage.

Couldn’t see that coming. Oh, wait….

“The tales of dropped or altered coverage and increasing costs are just beginning — within both the individual and employer-based markets.”

..ordinarily not a fan of Huge Hewitt-less, the guy was en fuego last week with his one-on-one with the assshole L. A. Times columnist who thought he had debunked the story of a lady fropped by her health care provider.

Hugh’s absolutely spot on in this case: that clown and his ilk are going to be busy with this debunking cottage industry they’ve created.

Hope they all die and go to hell with a hard-on.

fropped == dropped , of course.

Obviously, Jeffery is a member of the privileged race and needs to pay a just little bit more.

Buck up, Jeff. Esmeralda and her 9 kids say “gracias, gringo”

“My mind’s made up, don’t confuse me with facts.
And certainly don’t confuse me with more facts. Or with MORE facts. Or with MORE and MORE facts. Or with MORE and MORE and MORE facts.
“Or facts in a house, or facts with a mouse, or facts here, or facts there, or facts ANYWHERE.”

I’m confused. They’re now cancelling the obamascare exchange plans?

NOMOBO on November 4, 2013 at 1:09 PM

Let this be a clarion call for all voters. Elections have consequences. Does anyone really think that if Republicans were in charge of the Senate back in 2009/2010 that this monstrosity would’ve seen the light of day?
Yes, sometimes holding your nose and voting AGAINST someone is the right thing to do. If I were in CA or NV, I’d vote for Mumbles the Monster over Puglosi or Dingy Harry.

When are we going to see the speech from Obama with all these people in the background instead of the usual astro turf?

A waiver is needed to move this timetable out of the election cycle.
