Obama apologizes for health coverage cancellations due to Obamacare

By Ashley Killough, CNN Thu November 7, 2013

(CNN) -- President Barack Obama apologized on Thursday to Americans whose insurance plans are being canceled due to the federal health law he championed even though he said repeatedly they could keep their coverage if they liked.

"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he told NBC News in an exclusive interview.

"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," he added.

Obama's comments come days after he attempted to clarify what he meant when he repeatedly assured Americans in previous years that they would be able to keep their plans under the Affordable Care Act.

Millions of people have received cancellation notices from their insurance companies in recent weeks.

Administration officials have acknowledged that insurance companies in many cases are dropping coverage that is less comprehensive than so-called Obamacare, and that Americans would be better off in the long run with new insurance.

Key elements of the health law prohibit discrimination for pre-existing conditions and require new plans cover maternity care, mental health and other areas. The program was developed to put comprehensive care within reach of millions of uninsured Americans.

About 95% of legal U.S. residents receive health insurance through private employers or the federal government, the Obama administration says.

Obama's apology comes a week after similar refrains were made by Vice President Joe Biden and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius regarding the botched Obamacare online rollout.

Sebelius on Obamacare

While the federal website problems have been a political nightmare for the administration, Republican opponents have seized more aggressively on the policy cancellations, which have become problematic for Democratic politicians as well.

CNN White House Senior Correspondent Jim Acosta asked White House Spokesman Jay Carney on Tuesday if the president could go back in time, would he still promise Americans they could keep their plans?

"Well, the president, as awesomely powerful as the office is, can't go back in time," Carney said. "And what the president is focused on is what we are all focused on which is getting this right for the American people."

"It is on us," Carney later added. "Let me be clear, I'm not - I am embracing the responsibility that the administration and that everyone involved in the market place has, to make sure that those individuals are getting the information that they need."

The administration knew that many policies would be changed by the insurance carriers. In 2010 the Health and Human Services Department estimated that 40% to 67% of individual plans would lose their grandfather status.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/07/polit...macare-apology/

My Comments: Apology not accepted. The entire administration under the Obummer knew about all the canceled policies well before they happened. In fact, they knew about that when the bill was written. They had to know because the success of the bill was dependent on the money from the renewing of those policies into ObummerCare. Even if the prez did not know the details, all his advisers did and failed to tell him to zip his lips about his promises.

And still he did not apologize to the nation for the lie. He only apologized to those loosing their policies.

On another note, this business about no employer is going to be affected by ObummerCare if they have under 50 employees is another lie because there is no health care policy in existence that is legal under "Affordable Care Act" laws. They will ALL have to be canceled and replaced with ObummerCare with higher premiums, higher deductibles and higher co pays.

All the above does not even stack up to the immensity of the destruction to the American economy by forcing, by law, hundreds upon hundreds of billions of dollars of hard working, tax paying Americans money directly into the federal treasury for the purpose of ObummerCare. Thats entirely leaving out the impact of any tax increases that are undoubtedly coming as a direct result of out of control spending in Washington DC.

We had a healthcare sign up meeting at work today. Between the company changing its policy from covering 100% to now only covering 50% and the cost of our insurance jumped 159%... it was ugly.

Several of the production folks who are barely keeping their house payed and kids fed were nearly in tears over it.

I am pretty much furious over this crap.

There is no apology, this is what the Lyin King lives by and has been taught. Morals and ethics mean absolutely nothing to this man, they are just relative terms with the truth being what you make it.

1. One’s concern with the ethics of means and ends varies inversely with one’s personal interest in the issue.
2. The judgment of the ethics of means is dependent upon the political position of those sitting in judgment.
3. In war the end justifies almost any means.
4. Judgment must be made in the context of the times in which the action occurred and not from any other chronological vantage point.
5. Concern with ethics increases with the number of means available and vice versa.
6. The less important the end to be desired, the more one can afford to engage in ethical evaluations of means.
7. Generally, success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics.
8. The morality of a means depends upon whether the means is being employed at a time of imminent defeat or imminent victory.
9. Any effective means is automatically judged by the opposition as being unethical.
10. You do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral garments.
11. Goals must be phrased in general terms like “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” “Of the Common Welfare,” “Pursuit of Happiness,” or “Bread and Peace.”

There is no apology
Thats correct.

He said, "I'm sorry people were affected"

Thats it.

Thats no apology to anyone.

That just shows a very sorry excuse of regret that he was caught.

On Nov 6, Sebelius said Obamacare will not be delayed:
Sebelius: Obamacare "delay is not an option"

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162...-not-an-option/
That same day Humana Inc said they are preparing for Obamacare delay:

Drumroll please...Obama and insurance companies to meet at dawn at forty paces with loaded weapons. Insurance companies to use fully loaded AR15's and Obama will use his piercing tongue.

It's amazing the democraps forced obamacare onto everyone. The democraps created the 35,000 pages of rules , and taxes..

And not once did they consult, hospitals, healthcare insurance providers on what could be done to lower Heath care cost, and create plans to cover more people. But obominater is going full steam ahead! A person who has accomplished nothing in business. Mr. Bindon was correct " it is big f'ing deal !!! "

Its a very, very big deal.

The passing of that bill, that was not read, was based on several lies to get votes in the senate and the house in 2009/2010.

There are many more to come.

Count on it.

fwiw..

If this were still a nation of laws, it would be easy to have the SCROTUM overturn it....It apparently was 2000 pages when passed, now 13000 and counting...What is being enforced is not a law passed by the duly prostituted government.

Q: Is it possible that The Scrotum's Chief Justice
who, if you will remember, made the FINAL DECISION
to pass OmyfreekinggodCARE for the bumster; is in
any way a homosexual?

Just askin.

You could call it the promise of royal fudge.

The inside track on that one always amazes me.

For those of you still unaware, homosexuality is
an abomination to our Creator.

It is not a genetic disorder.

It is a wrong behavior.

One can repent of a misunderstood behavior.

(Or TOSS our Creator out!)

Which CHOICE is the WISER?

You've got have one to step on it....

Here's something that occurred to me.......
OK - heading towards another showdown on debt ceilings, budgets etc.
How much you want to bet, another shutdown will occur AND under that premise, they will shutdown the Ocare website under the guise of sequester cuts......then blame the Republican for the failure of Obamacare.
Wait for it, the libtards will find a way to spin this around on conservatives and the MSM will eat it up with a spoon......and libtards will believe it.
The poo really hits the fan when the employer mandate drops....

Surely anything is possible.

As evidenced by recent history, they are surely not going to take responsibility themselves.
