With the Obamacare train wreck serving as a heavy anchor dragging her approval ratings down, Sen. Kay Hagan is growing ever more desperate. Now she is attempting to shift blame for her and Obama’s repeated lies about people being able to keep their insurance plan if they like it onto the insurance companies.
“It wasn’t clear – and it’s very disappointing – that for the last three years insurance companies continued to sell plans that didn’t meet the basic standards of the law and didn’t tell consumers that those plans would be canceled,” Hagan spokeswoman Sadie Weiner said in a statement. (emphasis added)
The first-term Democrat has declined to respond to questions about when she knew that policies would be canceled.
So according to Hagan’s office, the insurance companies should have been telling their customers that their plans were going to be cancelled – at the same time Hagan and Obama were repeatedly telling the American people that if they liked their plans, they could keep their plans, period.
How could this be so?
Is Hagan’s office busted? Are they admitting that it was common knowledge among lawmakers and insurance companies three years ago that people would have to lose their plans? Is this statement proof that Hagan has been lying?
For this not to be the case, one has to believe that the insurance companies knew that people would lose their plans three years ago, but Hagan somehow did not. Or, Hagan’s office is lying now about the insurance companies knowing three years ago that people would lose their plan.
