ObamaCare Outrage #14: 83 million Americans will lose private health insurance

American Spectator reports on Heritage analysis of Democrat House bill:

Democrats and President Obama have denied that the creation of a new government-run health care plan would be a Trojan Horse for single-payer health care, but a new report by the Lewin Group (comissioned by the Heritage Foundation) finds that the House Democrats' health care bill would shift more 83.4 million Americans from private health care coverage to the government plan. To put that in perspective, that would mean that nearly half (48.4 percent) would lose their private health coverage. In all, the government plan would have 103.4 million members once implemented, according to the Lewin analysis. President Obama has repeated the mantra that anybody who likes their health insurance plan can keep it, but in reality about 63 percent of covered Americans get their health care through their employers, and if employers decide to drop their current health plans in favor of the government plan, workers won't have any choice but to sign up.
The ObamaCare bill is a bill that with subsidies, regulations, cost-shifting and taxes, will force most Americans into the Government-run health insurance system.

The more you look at the bill, the worse it looks.

The Lewin Group is owned by UnitedHealth Group. What do you think they would say?
