    IBDeditorials.com: ...Jul 15, 2009 ... "Right there on Page 16 is a provision making individual private medical insurance illegal."

    If you believed Obama when he said you could keep your private plan, then It's congress that's telling us the truth but under the deepest of obfuscation:

    "Under the Orwellian header of "Protecting The Choice To Keep Current Coverage," the "Limitation On New Enrollment" section of the bill clearly states:

    "Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day" of the year the legislation becomes law.

    So we can all keep our coverage, just as promised — with, of course, exceptions: Those who currently have private individual coverage won't be able to change it. Nor will those who leave a company to work for themselves be free to buy individual plans from private carriers."
