WASHINGTON, D.C. (TEC News), November 15 – With the many technical issues surrounding the Obamacare system, another that rose up recently is that some Americans may lose their current health care plans because they don’t meet requirements anymore. As President Obama addressed the nation yesterday, he expressed his concern for this and promised a fix:
Obama – “I completely get how upsetting this can be for a lot of Americans. Particularly after assurances they heard from me that if they had a plan they liked they could keep it. And to those Americans, I heard you loud and clear. I said that I would do everything that we can to fix this problem and today I’m offering an idea that would do it.” (at 5:19) (OBAMA SND BITE)
Obama stated that the law was already put in place that those who had plans before Obamacare was implemented may keep them. He also said that he was going to extend the law to state that people who have plans that have changed and people who purchased plans after the new one was implemented may keep them as well.
