House Dems refuse to apologize for Obamacare broken promises

Arrogant House Democrats refused to apologize Thursday for parroting their leader’s repeated lie that Americans can keep their health insurance plans if they liked them.

After President Obama’s Thursday press conference, four Democratic House leaders held their own press conference and basically told millions of Americans who have lost their health insurance thanks to Obamacare they had nothing to apologize for.

According to Yahoo News, “Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, the top four House Democrats — Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Assistant Leader James Clyburn, Whip Steny Hoyer and House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra — were asked if they would apologize to any constituents who felt misled by Democrats. Each declined.”

“I don’t think there’s anything for us to apologize for,” Clyburn said.

“What do I hear from folks about home? I’m getting lots of thank you’s, lots of thank you’s,” Becerra said about his “second most uninsured” district in the nation.

“I agree with Mr. Hoyer,” Pelosi told reporters. “What the president said in regard to the Affordable Care Act is absolutely so. There is nothing in the Affordable Care Act that said your insurance company should cancel you.”

“Did I ever tell my constituents that if they liked their plan they could keep it? I would have if I’d ever met anybody who liked his or her plan. But that was not my experience, Pelosi added.”

Well, as a matter of fact, the Weekly Standard reported:

Pelosi said in 2009 ‘If you like what you have, you can keep it.’ Pelosi’s website still states: ‘Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.’”

    I am fed up with so called political leaders who refuse to be truthful and who simply spin every set of facts to suit their own political agenda. The Obama administration is turning us into a second rate power and the Iranians are laughing at us as Kerry begs them for tiny concessions.

    Why did Pelosi get elected. Send her a@# home.

    Obama 2009 – “That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”
    – President Obama, speech to the American Medical Association, June 15, 2009 (as the health-care law was being written.)

    “And if you like your insurance plan, you will keep it. No one will be able to take that away from you. It hasn’t happened yet. It won’t happen in the future.”
    – Obama, remarks in Portland, April 1, 2010, after the health-care law was signed into law.

    Aug. 24, 2009, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), a doctor, made this point: “On the stump, the president regularly tells Americans that ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.’ But if you read the bill, that just isn’t so. For starters, within five years, every health-care plan will have to meet a new federal definition for coverage — one that your current plan might not match, even if you like it.”

    If you want to know the TRUTH ask a Republican. But be careful, the Truth in the eyes of democrats, is Racist.
