Earlier today Pres. Obama held a press conference to announce that those people losing their insurance plans due to Unaffordable Care Act regulations will be able to “extend” or buy back into their previously cancelled plans. From ABCnews.com:
“The bottom line is insurers can extend current plans, that would otherwise be canceled, into 2014,” the president said in a hastily announced statement in the White House briefing room. ” And Americans whose plans have been canceled can choose to re-enroll in the same kind of plan.”
Hmmm, allowing people to keep their plans into 2014….I wonder if that has anything to do with those mid-term elections? Naw, couldn’t be.
Why not allow people to keep their plans as long as they like?
The president didn’t make any reported comments about the mess he just dropped in the lap of insurance companies, who may now have to re-enroll millions of people back into insurance plans from which they were just recently dropped.
In addressing the lie he repeatedly told about people being able to keep their insurance plans if they like it, Obama eeked out this laughable defense:
“There is no doubt that the way I put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate.”
That make’s Clinton’s “It depends on what the meaning of the word is, is” to shame.
