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.’”
