…[M]any of the New York policies being canceled meet and often exceed the [Obamacare] standards, brokers say. The rationale for disqualifying those policies, said Larry Levitt, a health policy expert at the Kaiser Family Foundation, was to prevent associations from selling insurance to healthy members who are needed to keep the new health exchanges financially viable.
Siphoning those people, Mr. Levitt said, would leave the pool of health exchange customers “smaller and disproportionately sicker,” and would drive up rates.
Contemplate that for a moment. I can’t think of a clearer and more succinct example of the callous and manipulative mindset behind Obamacare and social engineering in general. People are pawns to be moved around on a large board. We needed these people here, so liberty and choice can be jettisoned for them.
We said they could keep their plans? Tough. We said later that the plans that were cancelled as a result of Obamacare were only the “junk,” substandard ones? Well, guess what: we lied. Tough again.
It’s for the greater good, after all. As the august Nancy Pelosi would say, embrace the suck.
