Obama apology for Obamacare lies
President Obama is apologizing for telling so many ObamaCare lies regarding Americans being able to keep their health insurance. But will it suffice?
I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me. We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and that we’re going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this,” Obama told Chuck Todd on NBC News.
Though the president is hoping this “sort-of” apology will keep him in the good graces of the American people, it cannot undo the damage or mitigate the facts. While he told Todd that they tried to keep that promise, the story doesn’t comport with the proven meeting that transpired at the White House in 2010, in which they made a political decision to lie about Americans being able to keep their health care.
Furthermore, as reported by our PPD study, Health and Human Services methodically increased Essential Health Benefit Standards with the specific intention of throwing people off of their private health insurance plans. As a result, over 140 million Americans will lose their health insurance and be dumped into the ObamaCare exchanges, generally paying a far higher cost for lower coverage.
Despite the apology, Denny Mueller, one American who just learned that he will be cancelled under ObamaCare, said “we don’t want ObamaCare.” Mueller, who gave an interview to Fox News said he was paying a little over $300 monthly for his health plan, but now will be forced to pay $530.80 for a Blue Care plan under ObamaCare.
He said, “I can’t afford that. I am 60-years old.” Senator Bill Nelson D-FL, offered to help Mueller find a policy and what he referred to as “correct information,” by referring him to a government website providing information regarding ObamaCare.
He faxed Senator Nelson the information he found on the site, as well as the quotes he received from the ObamaCare website, to which he received no response. “I don’t want to be dependent on the government,” he told Martha McCallum. Mr. Mueller cannot afford the new plan, so he will pay the fine rather be on “the government dole,” receiving substandard care.
When asked about whether or not he bought the president’s comments and apology, there was no question in his mind. “I don’t think the man’s ever told the truth. I don’t think he was ever telling the truth,” Mueller said.
This will not be the last story we will here, as 140 million Americans will receive the same or similar cancellations.
