CNN: Democrats Voted Unanimously for Rule that Led to Insurance Cancellations

that in September of 2010, in an attempt to let 
people keep their insurance plans, Senate 
Republicans tried to block the grandfather rule 
that is currently resulting in millions of 
Americans having their insurance policies 
cancelled. Democrats, including many who are 
facing re-election next year, unanimously voted 
to support the rule. The result, as we have seen, 
is two million already losing the insurance plan 
Obama repeatedly promised they could keep.

In its report, CNN points out that the whole 
point of the GOP efforts was to protect millions 
from losing their insurance. So what we have here 
is yet more proof that the GOP has been warning 
for years about this avoidable catastrophe, while 
the media and Democrats covered their ears and screamed happy talk.

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. 

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

The bad news for Democrats is that every single 
Senate Democrat facing a tough 2014 reelection -- 
Mary Landrieu, Jeanne Shaheen, Mark Pryor, Kay 
Hagan and Mark Begich -- is now on record voting 
for a rule that will not only result in up to 20 
million losing insurance they were happy with, 
but doing so after being warned that this would happen.
