Thanks, Obamacare! CBO predicts 7 million will lose job-based health insurance

Well, no one saw this coming. The Washington Times reports that the CBO has revised its previous estimates and now predicts that Obamacare will snatch employment-based health coverage from 7 million Americans.

If you like your plan, you can keep your plan? Yeah, not so much.

B-b-but, unexpectedly!

Happy days are here again.

That was totally different.

Boy, this really puts the “affordable” in “Affordable Care Act”!

    Thanks, low-information voters! WE pay for what YOU voted for.

    It’s not about covering people. Never has been. It’s about making current system fail to usher in single-payer.

    Thanks Obama, that’s some real progress! Back alleys and coat hangers… for an appendectomy.

    Where are all the Lady Parts? Don’t they realize, without insurance, they will still have to pay for their own b/c? Idiots! That’s what happens though, when you vote with your lady parts instead of their lady smarts.

      They don’t have any lady SMARTS. Now I guess we will see the REAL war on women. The only good thing about this whole disaster will be watching their heads explode when the $hit hits the fan.

    This is what you get from people who think 7.9% was the new 4.3

      Maxx, Sadly none of those people would even understand what you just wrote.

    This is what they wanted all along…more uninsured. One step closer to single payer. Never trust what this administration says…

    gonna be way more than 7 million. just look at the rise in long term contractor positions at large companies. contractors don’t get benefits. full time employee positions are gonna get pretty scarce. but long term it may actually turn to our advantage. more and more people without insurance will be paying directly out of pocket for care, thus reintroducing the free market back into healthcare.

      This country will never benefit from Obama care…. the best plan would be to rid of it entirely!
