Obama tried a new tack Wednesday as he fought back against criticism of his Obamacare claims.
Fact-checkers and journalists have ruled that Obama wasn’t being truthful when he claimed that people who liked their insurance could keep it. Obama during a speech in Boston sought to cast the issue Wednesday as trying to weed out “bad apple insurers” who don’t provide enough coverage.
“One of the things health reform was designed to do was to help not only the uninsured but also the under-insured,” Obama said. “And there are a number of Americans, fewer than 5 percent of Americans, who’ve got cut-rate plans that don’t offer real financial protection in the event of a serious illness or an accident.
“Remember, before the Affordable Care Act, these bad apple insurers had free rein every single year to limit the care that you received or used minor pre-existing conditions to jack up your premiums or bill you into bankruptcy.”
Obama said any such plans that existed before the health care law was passed can indeed be kept — notably excluding plans that began after the law was passed.
“That’s what I said when I was running for office. That was part of the promise we made,” Obama said. “But ever since the law was passed, if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is, you’ve got to replace them with quality, comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the Affordable Care Act from the very beginning.”
LOOK UP THE WORD “TAQUIYA”..
YOU WILL SEE WHAT OBAMA HAS BEEN DOING FROM DAY ONE…
HE IS STEALING THE COUNTRY BECAUSE YOU TAKE HIM AT FACE VALUE!
