Barack Obama Apologizes For Americans Losing Their Health Care … But Not for Lying Over and Over to Them that They Could Keep Their Healthcare When He Knew
Now He’s Sorry?
Brenda Lee sings ‘I’m Sorry’ for Barack Obama … “I’m sorry, so sorry. That I was such a fool”
President Barack Obama was forced into saying he was sorry for some Americans losing their current healthcare plans because of Obamacare. Some? Some? Really, just some, how about 4.2 million and counting! Hmm, wasn’t it just the other day that Obama and his minions were saying, “what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed?” As Legal Insurrection opines, So today Obama is sorry” for making the promises he previously denied making. HUH, more lack of credibility or sincerity from an individual watching his presidency fall apart. Obviously, Obama has been told that his current set of spin is not working, his poll numbers are plummeting and Democrats facing elections are freaking out. But no where in his apology did Obama say he was sorry for purposely lying to “We the People”.
President Obama said Thursday that he is “sorry” that some Americans are losing their current health insurance plans as a result of the Affordable Care Act, despite his promise that no one would have to give up a health plan they liked.
“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.
“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.”
Obama’s comments come 10 days after NBC News’ Lisa Myers reported that the administration has known since the summer of 2010 that millions of Americans could lose their insurance under the law.
Obama has made repeated assurances that “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan” with Obamacare.
Obama’s definition of “some”
YIKES, the liberal MSM is not buying Obama’s apology either as the WAPO writes, watch Obama, kinda, sorta apologize. They point out that unlike the Obamacare web site that is riddled with glitches and moronic code writing, something that was not intended to be a disaster … the elimination of individuals insurance plans was intended as it “is a feature, not a bug” of Obamacare.
President Obama is offering an apology to Americans who have received insurance cancellation notices–sort of.
What Obama isn’t offering is an apology for the cancellation notices themselves. Eliminating certain health plans from the market — ones that the White House thinks are too skimpy — is a feature, not a bug, of the Affordable Care Act. You can read more about that here in our FAQ on why about 7 million to 12 million health plans are being terminated under the Affordable Care Act.
HA, maybe The Lonely Conservative states is best … “Obama’s Really Sorry For That Law He Rammed Down Our Throats.”
