Remember When The White House Wanted You To Snitch On Anyone Saying You Would Lose Your Healthcare Under Obamacare?

One of the things they wanted you to report was anyone speaking the truth about Obamacare forcing you off your insurance. This is right from the White House blog page:
UPDATE: As part of our effort to push back on the misinformation about health insurance reform, we've launched It's full of videos and tools you can use to share the facts with your friends and family. Check it out.

Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, "facts are stubborn things."

Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to "uncover" the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions.

In this video, Linda Douglass, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office, addresses one example that makes it look like the President intends to "eliminate" private coverage, when the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them. He has even proposed eight consumer protections relating specifically to the health insurance industry.
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to

Here are the complete videos that Linda refers to. First from the AARP:

36 Times Obama Said You Could Keep Your Health Care Plan


Barack Obama: 'What We Said Was, You Could Keep' Your Health Care Plan, If - Organizing for America

11/4/13 - During an appearance in front of supporters at Monday evening's Organizing for America summit in Washington, D.C., President Obama addressed the critics who are latching on to promises he made over the course of several years about the impact of the Affordable Care Act on those who already have health insurance. "If you like your plan, you can keep it," Obama said again and again, sometime adding the word "period" at the end.

Now that some Americans are receiving termination notices from insurance companies who are canceling plans that don't measure up to standards dictated by Obamacare, the administration and its allies have been forced to qualify those promises. Obama delivered his most direct remarks on the issue Monday night in an attempt to defend his previous statements and explain the present situation.

"While virtually every insurer is offering new, better plans and competing for these folks' business," Obama said of the people who are losing their current insurance, "I realize that can be scary for people if you just get some notice like that."

"If you had or have one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law," the president said, "and you really like that plan, what we said was, you could keep it... if it hasn't changed since the law's passed."

He explained that those people are "grandfathered in" under the Affordable Care Act. "But if the insurance company changes it, then what we're saying is they've got to change it to a higher standard. They've got to make it better. They've got to improve the quality of the plan that they're selling."

"The bottom line is that we are making the insurance market better for everybody," Obama declared.

Essentially, what President Obama is now saying is that when he promised people they could keep their existing health plans, the missing caveat was: "but if not, the Affordable Care Act will make sure you get a better one." 

Here's a compilation of what he REALLY said!  He is such a LIAR!  TO ANYONE THAT VOTED FOR THIS LIE, VOTE THEM OUT! Even MSNBC is pointing out his blatant lies!



Senator Mike Enzi predicts loss of health care plans in 2010-Dems voted against his plan to allow Americans to keep their plans!

Published on Nov 1, 2013

Henry Ford said that customers could have his Model T in any color they wanted as long as it was black. Sounds similar to what the president has promised with health care. If you like your current plan you can keep it, as long as it's a model we choose. I pointed out three years ago that the Administration had started us down this path, which is why I offered a resolution that would have given people the honest choice to keep their plans. Despite several warnings, everyone in the majority party in the Senate voted against it. We have a bill that would give them another chance to keep their promise. They need to support us this time.

Obamacare Grandfather Rule Exposed - Dana Loesch vs. Richard Fowler - The Kelly File - 11-1-13

Published on Nov 1, 2013
Back in 2010, Democrats like Senator Mary Landrieu voted against proposed legislation from Republicans that would have prevented loss of healthcare coverage. FNC's Megyn Kelly hosts this spirited debate between Radio Talk Show host, Dana Loesch against Democratic Strategist, Richard Fowler.
September 29, 2010 -Senator Enzi introduces his Senate Joint Resolution 39 warning America that they will lose their current coverage under this law...All Republicans voted to protect Americans and their 'grandfathered' plans and ALL Democrats votes AGAINST protecting Americans current healthcare plans.  

It is worth taking the time to see how the Republicans continued to try to warn American's while the Democrats played political games and it will cost us dearly!

Not Voting1

There could be changes to this list. John Kerry's seat was initially in this section, but after he left to become the Secretary of State it gave Scott Brown a decent shot at the seat. The seat was moved to vulnerable... until Brown bowed out of the special election being held in 2013. Iowa's Tom Harkin was leaning safe until he opted for retirement. The retirement of Max Baucus also shifted his seat into "vulnerable" territory.

Vulnerable Democratic Seats

Alaska – Mark Begich won by 1-point in 2008 after Republican Ted Stevens was convicted of minor crimes just days before the general election. The conviction was later thrown out when it was later discovered that the prosecution had hidden key evidence that would have likely led to a non-guilty verdict. Without the prosecutorial misconduct, the US Senate outcome would have likely been different. Begich provided the 60th vote for Obamacare.

Arkansas – Mark Pryor didn’t face opposition in 2008, which was odd given the conservative tilt of the state. This will be his first time facing the voters since voting for Obamacare supporting most of the Obama agenda since. Democrat Blanche Lincoln lost by 21-points in 2010 after facing the voters for the first time and the GOP is hoping to repeat that performance against Pryor.

Colorado – Mark Udall won with 53% of the vote in his first contest and would be the favorite to win re-election. But there are a number of candidates who could make the race competitive for Republicans.

Iowa – Tom Harkin won by a healthy 26-point margin in 2008, but he decided not to seek re-election in 2014. Republicans have a fairly wide pool of candidates for a possible takeover.

Louisiana – Mary Landrieu has won election to the US Senate by an average of just 3 points in three elections. She remains one of the few Democratic senators in the south and – along with Pryor – will face voters for the first time since voting for Obamacare. Her blue-dog claims may be less convincing this time. So far, Congressman Bill Cassidy has has declared his candidacy for the GOP side.

Michigan - The retirement hits keep coming for the Democrats as sure bet Carl Levin announced he would also retire in 2014. Both the GOP and Democratic fields are wide open and each side has recent victories to brag about. President Obama and Debbie Stabenow both won the state in 2010, but the Governor's mansion any many statewide races flipped to the Republicans previously

Minnesota – “Comedian” Al Franken won by the slimmest of margins in a highly controversial outcome in 2008. Minnesota has trended blue, but Obama did not run away with the state in 2012, having picked up just 52% of the vote. So far, the GOP hasn't had much luck finding a candidate. Former Governor Tim Pawlenty and US Senator Norm Coleman have passed on a run.

Montana - Mac Baucus announced he was retiring after his current term expires in this red state. Now it is up to the Republicans to find a candidate who can put the state in the win column. Former Democratic Governor Brian Schweitzer would be the best hope for Democrats. Mitt Romney carried the state by double digits in 2012.

New Hampshire – Jeanne Shaheen is one for two in this US Senate race but won't be going up for round three against John E. Sununu. Sununu won by 5 points in 2002, while Shaheen won by 7 in 2008. New Hampshire is very unpredictable electorally. So far, there is no clear frontrunner to challenge Shaheen.

North Carolina – Kay Hagan enjoyed upset victories in 2008 along with Democrat Governor Bev Purdue and President Obama. Obama lost the state in 2012 and Purdue didn’t even try to run for re-election given her unpopularity (Subsequently won handily by the GOP ticket). Polls show Hagan is upside down in job approval and she will see no shortage of potential opponents.

South Dakota – Tim Johnson is another “moderate” Democrat in a heavily Republican state who announced is retirement rather than face the voters after voting for Obamacare. Former GOP Governor Mike Rounds announced his candidacy and the state’s lone congresswoman Kristi Noem, who just won re-election state-wide by 15 points, is considering a run. The Democrats best (and perhaps only) chance at keeping the seat rests with former congresswoman Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, who lost to Noem by just over 2 points n 2010.

West Virginia – Jay Rockefeller has decided not to run for re-election, giving the GOP a decent chance at finally winning a Senate seat in supposed-to-be-really-conservative West Virginia. Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito is running for the Republicans and very early polls have given her a healthy lead against potential Democratic opponents.
