Obamacare “Same Doctor, Same Plan” Promise Is A Bald Faced Lie

Obama’s guarantee that Americans would still be able to keep the same health care plan is already proving fraudulent as businesses, insurance companies and medical device manufacturers jack up prices

Obamacare Same Doctor, Same Plan Promise Is A Bald Faced Lie 260310top

President Obama’s promise that Americans would still be able to keep the same doctor and the same plan they were on before the health care bill was passed is already collapsing, with businesses, insurance companies and medical device manufacturers jacking up prices in response to Obamacare, and making it clear that the burden of the raft of new taxes imposed by the legislation will fall on Americans across the income spectrum.

Accusing critics of “fearmongering” and “over-heated rhetoric.” Obama mockingly said birds were still chirping after he signed the legislation and that armageddon had not arrived during a speech yesterday in Iowa.

“After I signed the bill I looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or some cracks opening up in the earth – turned out it was a nice day,” quipped Obama.

Obama said “the cynics and naysayers would have to confront the reality,” and that the reform “isn’t a government takeover of our health care system,” claiming that “if Americans like their doctor they’ll be keeping their doctor, you like your plan, you’ll be keeping your plan.”

Obama promised that 6 months from now Americans would still have the “same doctor, same plan”.

Watch the clip below.

However, millions of Americans will lose their doctor and their current plan once businesses, insurance companies, and medical devices manufacturers inevitably raise their prices as a result of Obamacare, which is already happening.

As Business Insider highlights, “Remember the part in the ObamaCare pitch when they said if you like your current healthcare, it won’t change? Turns out it might.”

“Companies are already announcing that their healthcare premium costs are going through the roof. Some are responding by firing people. Some are cutting benefits. And some are presumably eating it.”

As the Wall Street Journal reports, within one day of Obama signing the bill, companies were already warning about higher health costs.

Caterpillar, the world’s largest construction machinery manufacturer, warned even before the bill was passed that new costs under Obamacare to cover its employees would amount to no less than $100 million dollars just within the first year.

Medical device maker Medtronic also cautioned that new taxes imposed by the bill would force the company to lay off thousands of workers to cover the costs.

Zoll, the leading manufacturer of heart defibrillators, also stated that Obamacare will completely eviscerate its profits, forcing it to lay off thousands of employees.

So under Obamacare, not only will tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of Americans not get to keep their health care plan, they won’t even get to keep their jobs as a result of the bill.

Now Verizon is warning its employees that they are unlikely to be able to keep their current health care plan as a consequence of the legislation.

“In an email titled “President Obama Signs Health Care Legislation” sent to all employees Tuesday night, the telecom giant warned that “we expect that Verizon’s costs will increase in the short term.” While executive vice president for human resources Marc Reed wrote that “it is difficult at this point to gauge the precise impact of this legislation,” and that ObamaCare does reflect some of the company’s policy priorities, the message to workers was clear: Expect changes for the worse to your health benefits as the direct result of this bill, and maybe as soon as this year,” reports WSJ.

Verizon also warned that the burden of the 40% tax on high-end health plans under Obamacare “will simply be spread to all workers,” illustrating once again that taxes introduced under the guise of punishing the rich merely hit everyone in the pocket, while elitist Washington insiders like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Obama himself will be completely exempt from their own bill as a result of a loophole.

“Businesses around the country are making the same calculations as Verizon and no doubt sending out similar messages. It’s only a small measure of the destruction that will be churned out by the rewrite of health, tax, labor and welfare laws that is ObamaCare, and only the vanguard of much worse to come,” concludes the WSJ report.

So there you have it – Obama’s guarantee that Americans will be able to keep the “same doctor, same plan” is a bald-faced lie. Soaring costs across the board as a result of the plethora of new taxes mandated by Obamacare will simply be passed on to every American, amounting to gargantuan health care costs in the region of $15,000 a year for middle class families.

And if you refuse to pay it – Obamacare ensures there’ll be a willing army of heavily armed IRS agents ready to convince you otherwise.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
