Pelosi: Founding Fathers Wanted ObamaCare Because of Job-Lock, or Something

Pelosi: "Founding Fathers Wanted ObamaCare Because of Job-Lock, or Something

Yes, she really said that.
Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi emerged into the sunlight April 1 to applaud a rush of sign-ups for Obamacare, and immediately described it as the long-sought goal of Gen. George Washington and the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1787.
“It is really so heart warming for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to healthcare,” she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico.
“There are those critics, bumps in the road, but they’ve only been turbulence. They have not been an obstacle to the American people having healthier life that our that our founders wanted for them,” she said.
Those founders wanted “life — a healthier life — liberty and the freedom to pursue their happiness, not [be] job-locked, but having benefits that having health-care policies that are portable, they could be self-employed, be a photographer — they could start their own business, they could change jobs, they could reach their aspirations,” she declared.

Thank You DC and Zip.

And for all of that, Pelosi is either the Best, or more likely the reflected image SF's pile of Other People's Money saw in the mirror to send to DC.

Then again she may be one of her District's political medicine success stories.

At first I thought Obamacare was a great idea, now I don't have to stay in a job I hate because I'm tied to my health insurance, or so called 'job-lock'. Boy was I totally mistaken, as the old adage goes 'look before you leap'. If you decide to change jobs between March 31 and November 14 you are essentially screwed when it comes to purchasing health insurance. Turns out the only way you can get insurance outside the 'open enrollment period' is to have a Qualifying Life Event or QLE. While losing your job IS a QLE, leaving your job voluntarily is NOT. I don't know very many people who change jobs without quitting their previous one first. It appears that the only way you can change jobs now and expect to get health insurance at your next employer is to GET FIRED FROM YOUR PREVIOUS JOB. If you simply find a better job and wish to switch better do it after November 15 or before March 31st or you won't be able to get health insurance. On top of that you will only be covered from January on even if you sign up in November. So change jobs under Obamacare after March 31 and you won't be able to have health insurance until JANUARY OF THE NEXT YEAR! That is 10 MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR I won't have coverage because I wanted a better job. I suppose they are also going to impose a penalty at tax time because I didn't have coverage during that period as well. And this is supposed to ENCOURAGE people to change jobs or start small businesses? Sounds to me like it will only DISCOURAGE those practices. Now if you don't mind destroying your professional reputation by getting fired just so you can qualify for health insurance at your next position, by all means go right ahead. Personally I have spent too many years building that reputation, Thanks Obamacare, now I can only change jobs between November and March, traditionally the WORST TIME OF YEAR to find work (unless your a Mall Santa) well done.
