Remember Obama telling you that you’ll get to keep the plan you already have?
“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”
He lied, what else is new?
Obamacare puts employers with grandfathered plans in a box. If they make changes to their plans to control increasing costs, they will lose their grandfathered status. Alternatively, if they keep grandfathered status by not making changes, their plans will eventually become unaffordable, forcing them to give them up. Either way, their employees will eventually lose their current coverage.
You can keep your health plan only if the insurance companies don’t make a single change to it. But come on. Of course they are going to make changes, however subtle, to keep costs down or to evolve with technology. This concept of grandfathering plans was never meant to preserve those plans but instead be used as an Obama lie to say he was not going to take your plans away.
