Obama said Thursday he was “sorry” Americans are losing health insurance plans he repeatedly said they could keep, and vowed to work with those who are finding themselves in a “tough situation” as a result.
His remarks came as a bipartisan bill was introduced in the Senate to delay the implementation of the individual mandate of ObamaCare by one year, meaning Americans would avoid a $95 penalty for not having health insurance that is scheduled to kick in next year.
Referring to those who are losing their health insurance plans, Obama told NBC News, “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 we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.”
No, you assclown. They lost their health insurance because you took over the health insurance industry and turned it into a government controlled socialist nightmare. He conveniently forgot to apologize for the “if you like your plan you can keep it” lie. And that $95 penalty is a craptastic understatement. The ObamaCare penalties will exceed current premiums by hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
Again: ObamaCare will increase family premiums by $3000, increase taxes on the Middle Class, create death panels, will cost an estimated $1.8 trillion annually, and the jackboots at the IRS will come after you with a penalty tax if you don’t have health insurance. Don’t think so? Obviously, you didn’t read the ObamaCare bill.
Just a friendly reminder: The Democrats blocked a proposal that would have allowed more people to keep the plans they had.
