Subject: [US-Patriots] In 2010 Senate Democrats Voted Against Americans Keeping Their Health Plans








In 2010 Senate Democrats Voted Unanimously Against A Resolution That Insured Americans Would Keep Their Health Care Plans


The Resolution And The Debate In The U.S. Senate Proves Obama And Senate Democrats Knew Millions Would Lose Their Coverage


In 2010, Senate Democrats voted unanimously against S.J Res. 39 a resolution that blocked health insurance policy cancellations by ObamaCare.


Resolution S.J. Res. 39 "Disapproves the rule submitted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) relating to status as a Grandfathered Health Plan" was proposed by Republican Senator John Mike Enzi of Wyoming and introduced in the U.S. Senate on September 21, 2010.


The resolution specifically refers to page 34538 of the Federal Register  “interim final regulations implementing the rules for group health plans and health insurance coverage in the group and individual markets under provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act regarding status as a grandfathered health plan” that led to the HHS computations on pages 34552 and 34553 of the Federal Register that stated “the Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013” and “the Departments estimate that the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 percent to 67 percent range that is estimated based on the fraction of individual policies that turn over from one year to the next.”


Attached is Senate Resolution S.J. Res. 39

 

Every Senate Democrat knew what these regulations would do to Americans' health care policies but still voted against the resolution, while every Senate Republican voted for the resolution, with the execution of Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who abstained. In other words, Republicans voted to insure Americans would keep their heath care plans as the president had promised, while the Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did not.

On September 21, 2010 Senator Enzi introduced the Resolution to the U.S. Senate.


Debate on the Resolution was held on September 29, 2010. Democrat Al Franken of Minnesota presided.


Senator Enzi opened the debate: "Mr. President, the debate today is about keeping the promise. The authors of the health care plan promised the American people that if they liked their current health care plan the could keep it. At least on 47 separate occasions President Obama promised if you like what you've got you can keep it. Unfortunately the Obama Administration has broken that promise. Earlier this year the administration published a regulation that will fundamentally change the health care plans of millions of Americans. The reality of this regulation is that if you like what you have, you can't keep it...Most businesses, the administration estimates, between 39 and 69% will not be able to keep the coverage they have...according to the administration, in small business up to 80% of the people, unless this resolution is passed, will lose the insurance they have and like."


Democrat Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa spoke out in favor of the HHS rule that would cancel millions of health care plans: "The new rule protects the consumer."


Democrat Senator Max Baucus of Montana said Senator Enzi's resolution was all about politics: "The resolution is a political stunt."


Now you know why Harkin and Baucus are not seeking reelection in 2014.


Republican Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming reminded the Senate of the president's promise: "'If you are among the hundreds of millions of Americans who already have health insurance, nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the plan or the doctor you have" and the Senator went on to say: "What a difference a year makes, on June 14th of this year the administration released a rule that violates this promise."


Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona commented: "The majority of the American people have always been against this law...More than 50% of all employees will not retain grandfather status."


Democrat Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois said: "Those who want to repeal the law want to repeal the consumer protections we put into the law...the change the Senator from Wyoming brings to the law is a bad change."

 

Iowa Republican Senator Charles Grassley said: “The District of Columbia is an island surrounded by reality. Only in the District of Columbia could you get away with telling the people if you like what you have you can keep it, and then pass regulations six months later that do just the opposite and figure that people are going to ignore it. But common sense is eventually going to prevail in this town and common sense is going to have to prevail on this piece of legislation as well.”

Grassley went on: “The administration's own regulations prove this is not the case. Under the grandfathering regulation, according to the White House's own economic impact analysis, as many as 69 percent of businesses will lose their grandfathered status by 2013 and be forced to buy government-approved plans.”

Here is the C-SPAN link to the debate: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/295721-1

When the debate was over, on a party line vote, the Democrats killed the resolution. The so-called Republican extremists, anarchists, hostage takers and Jihadists voted to save Americans' health care plans. They were right that ObamaCare was disaster for America.


So, who are the extremists? The Republicans, who opposed ObamaCare and its draconian regulations, and tried to save millions of Americans’ health insurance plans or the Democrats, who shoved this monstrosity down the American people’s throats and then had the gall to exempt themselves from it?


                     Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu and Majority Leader Harry Reid



Now many of these Democrat hypocrites, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mark Begich of Alaska, all of whom voted for ObamaCare and against the Enzi resolution and are up for election in 2014, are saying that they didn’t know that people would lose their health care plans. What liars.


This is absolute proof of what they are. It’s time to clean house in the U.S. Senate.
