Thanks, Obama! 7 Million Americans to Lose Medical Insurance As a Result of Obamacare

Obama shush finger to mouthDuring the health care debate Mr. Obama had said individuals would be able to keep their plans.

Critics pointed out that forcing businesses to increase coverage by government edict would only result in more businesses opting out and choosing not to provide health benefits at all.  Obama denied this.

Now the Congressional Budget Office admits it’s true — and seven million Americans and their families will soon be without health care because of Obama’s arrogant lies.

President Obama’s health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.

CBO said that this year’s tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they’ll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.

But the non-partisan agency also expects fewer people to have to pay individual penalties to the IRS than it earlier projects, because of a better method for calculating incomes that found more people will be exempt.

Overall, the new health provisions are expected to cost the government $1.165 trillion over the next decade — the same as last year’s projection.
