What's the President's Plan for the Newly Uninsured?
December 12, 2013
What we know is this: on January 1, millions of Americans are scheduled to lose the health insurance plans they liked and wanted to keep. Nowhere near that many have managed to enroll in Obamacare.
Because Washington said those plans would be illegal on January 1, health care providers followed the law and took steps to cancel millions of plans on schedule.
But President Obama and Secretary Sebelius haven't been ready with a functioning alternative, and certainly not an affordable alternative, for the millions of Americans who will be without coverage on January 1 because of Obamacare.
No one wants to see a situation where fewer Americans have coverage. But forcing an un-ready law and unwanted alternatives on the American people, might just have unintended consequences.
So what's the President's plan?
The American people are tired of waiting for clarity from an Administration that keeps waiting until the last minute to change its mind and announce the next big delay.
