They Got You, America! Rep Steny Hoyer concedes Democrats knew “Some” People would “Lose” Their Health Insurance

Controversy has erupted as hundreds of thousands of Americans have reportedly received cancellation notices from their insurers since Obamacare went into effect earlier this month. This seemingly runs contrary to a promise the president made in 2009 when he declared that “If you like your healthcare plan, you’ll be able to keep your healthcare plan, period.”

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) conceded that Democrats and President Obama should have been “more precise” when making the initial promise that if Americans like their current healthcare coverage, they would be able to keep it under the Affordable Care Act.

“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” Hoyer said in response to a question from National Review.

They didn’t read the bill but they knew you were going to lose your healthcare insurance without telling you about it!

Hoyer told another reporter that the Democratic promises were not “misleading,” per se, and that “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough.” He added that it “should have been caveated with – ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”
