Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Three million seniors losing their prescription drug coverage, thanks to ObamaCare

Didn’t President Kick#ss tell us ad nauseum last year that if you liked your coverage and your doctor, you could keep them?  Yeah, that was total bovine feces (but you already knew that).  Add this to the growing list of Pelosi’s “Things we’ll find out after passing the bill”:

More than 3 million seniors may have to switch their Medicare prescription plan next year, even if they’re perfectly happy with it, thanks to an attempt by the government to simplify their lives.

The policy change could turn into a hassle for seniors who hadn’t intended to switch plans during Medicare’s open enrollment season this fall.

And it risks undercutting President Barack Obama’s promise that people who like their health care plans can keep them.

A new analysis by a leading private research firm estimates that more than 3 million beneficiaries will see their current drug plan eliminated as Medicare tries to winnow down duplicative and confusing coverage, in order to offer consumers more meaningful choices. Instead of 40 or more plans in each state, beneficiaries would pick from 30 or so.

“As a result of this policy, there are going to be fewer plans offered in 2011,” said Bonnie Washington, a senior analyst with Avalere Health, which produced the study. “There is still going to be robust choice for beneficiaries, but those who have to change plans could experience some disruption and inconvenience.”

That’s a loss of 25% of choices…in the first year of ObamaCare!  But hey, I’m sure there won’t be any more of those plans disappearing after that, right?
