The Republican lawsuit targets reinsurance that helps insurance companies provide universal coverage without accounting for pre-existing conditions.
RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 11 -- The North Carolina Republican Party issued the following news release:
The Department of Health and Human Services has released updated Obamacare enrollment data (http://aspe.hhs.gov/health/reports/2013/MarketPlaceEnrollment/Dec2013/ib_2013dec_enrollment.pdf), and it shows that only 9,000 North Carolinians enrolled from October 1 to November 30.
The 8,970 enrollment figure pales in comparison to the over 473,000 North Carolinians who were impacted by cancellation notices informing them they would lose their current health insurance plans because they do not meet regulatory requirements in Obamacare.
The notices came despite Kay Hagan promising North Carolinians at least two dozen times (http://www.ncgop.org/kay-hagan-made-the-false-obamacare-promise-at-least-22-times/) that if they liked their health insurance plans they would be able to keep them under Obamacare.
"The results of Obamacare are in: only 9,000 North Carolinians have actually enrolled while nearly half a million are set to lose their current health insurance plans, and yet Kay Hagan still proudly supports this unmitigated disaster," said North Carolina Republican Party spokesman Daniel Keylin. "Kay Hagan touted herself as one of the architects of the Obamacare legislation, and then deliberately misled the public at least two dozen times by falsely promising that if they liked their plans they could keep them. To this day, Kay Hagan refuses to apologize to the millions of Americans who have lost their health care plans and are being burdened with skyrocketing premiums because of her failed record."
