Pelosi says to be ‘optimistic’ about higher premiums under Obamacare

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi held a press conference Thursday on Capitol Hill where she urged people to be “optimistic” about Obamacare, even if health insurance premiums do increase.

“You just see,” Pelosi said. “I mean be optimistic about it.  It is a very, very exciting enterprise,” as reported by CNS News.

When asked by a reporter about the advertised claim that Obamacare would lower health  insurance premiums for everyone, Pelosi said that they will go up for people who did not have insurance, and thus had no premium, who will now be forced to buy insurance.

Pelosi, the most unpopular leader in Congress, continued:

“I don’t remember saying that everybody in the country would have a lower premium, because everybody in the country doesn’t have health insurance. So how could it be lower?  But the fact is, the value of what you get for the cost that you pay is a reduction in cost to you.”

Except she did say as much during an appearance on “Meet the Press” last July, where she promised that “everybody will have lower rates, better quality care and better access” with Obamacare.
