CBO: Reid Bill Forces 10 Million Out of Current Health Care

CBO: Reid Bill Forces 10 Million Out of Current Health Care

You don’t hear President Barack Obama make this promise anymore, but when he was first selling his health insurance plan, Obama repeatedly promised the American people: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” Lost in the November 18th Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) version of Obamacare, was the CBOs latest confirmation that Obama’s statement is blatantly false.
Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee Ranking Member Mike Enzi (R-WY) asked the CBO to clarify their analysis of employer-based coverage changes and this week the CBO wrote back:
We estimate that between 9 million and 10 million other people who would be covered by an employment-based plan under current law would not have an offer of such coverage under the proposal.
The plain English translation of the above CBO speak is: “Under Obamacare, employers will dump 10 million of their employees out of their current coverage whether they like it or not.” No wonder Obama has stopped making his “if you like your health care you can keep it” promise.
