Finding out what’s in it: “Let me be clear, there is no option to keep my current plan.”
We were promised that under the ACA, we would be able to keep our present insurance plan if we liked it, and we could keep our own doctor, according to President Obama. This is absolutely not true. My current insurance plan is very affordable and has no deductible. This plan has been found to be noncompliant under the new federally mandated insurance law. So my insurance is going to cost nearly 50 percent more and will now have a $1,200 deductible.
The businessman who wrote this has a Democratic congressman who has repeatedly voted for Obamacare.
