In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.

“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,” Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley said at the time.

“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,” the Iowa Republican said.

On a party line vote, Democrats killed the resolution, which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year.

"You'll like this policy that doubles your premiums better anyway, your other plan was icky and gross, yuk!"

"Er, Obamacare didn't cause insurance companies to cancel your policy! The insurance companies realized no one would buy those scammy products anyway so they pulled them on you!"

"Help me here people, i'm looking for a lie that will fool sentient beings? Lil' help here?"

By the way, the lies are working on the Facebook crowd, the, "this more expensive policy is better" meme is a hit.

If I were a Republican in Congress, I would inform the party leadership that while I will support the outright repeal of Obamacare, I will not support the delay or weakening of any part of it. After all, the Democrats made it clear that anyone who wants to delay a part of it is a terrorist, so let them live with that declaration.

I would also file suit to demand that some portions the administration has announced unilateral, illegal delays on, take effect and be enforced as written.

I agree. You got Max "Architect Train Wreck" Baucus out talking about delaying the "penalty" (George Will pointed out it's unconstitutional if it's a penalty, it's a Tax, heh, heh). Why let them delay it only to put it in place later, makes no sense for a republican to go along with that, so my guess is they go along with it.

I've read there's a school of thought that the delay in penalty would cause the law to implode quicker because the sick would still sign up but the healthy would put it off because there's no reason not to. I don't know if i'd trust that the administration just wouldn't pay the bad apple insurance companies off for how ever many months.

I predict that Baracky's calculated gamble to "transform America" will fail miserably.

Reminds me of a giant game of Whack-A-Mole whereby a backroom deal gets made to resolve the negative result of one unintended consequence, only for a negative result of another unintended consequence to pop up. This is all so amusing.
