Someone earlier posted a picture of the White House website that explained in detail that you will get to keep your insurance. Yeah! Someone forgot to take that down.

Well I guess this one did it and good. Today, Obama publicly apologized. Although I wish he would have said much much more... Isn't it about time that he owns up to this one? Considering that he knew since 2010 that people would lose their coverage.

But wait a minute, I was giving him credit, but something is missing here... He never actually admitted to WHY Americans lost their insurance.


"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 at the White House.

"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."


Im sorry, but that wasn't a real apology. He needs to go on all networks and stand before the American people and say I am truly sorry I mislead you, in other words, I lied to you, and for that I am truly sorry. But he cant do that because he has balls the size of BBs.
Obama’s comments come 10 days after NBC News’ Lisa Myers reported that the administration has known since the summer of 2010 that millions of Americans could lose their insurance under the law. Obama has made repeated assurances that “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan” with Obamacare.

Your embed option sucks ATS... if you can't figure it out without trying and failing after reading up, then it needs to be fixed.

He just had a meeting with the Dems that are up for re election. Sounds to me like he is preparing to soften the blow for them.

Fact remains though, they voted for the damn thing, so suffer the consequences!!!


Unintended Consequence

This is an unintended consequence. The Health Insurance Corporations have been selling useless paper for decades. Policies with high deductibles, high co-pays, coverage caps, and exclusions that rendered the policies worthless. Those policies were just a ticket to get in the door at the hospitals and clinics that 'announced' the ticket holder as having money to burn. Owning one of those polices basically stated that you had insurance coverage that would actually pay for very little, however you could afford to pay the bill out-of-pocket, because you had money to pay a premium for worthless paper each month.

It is regrettable that some have been notified that you have been paying for a sub-standard Health Insurance product. I sincerely hope that you will go to the Health Insurance Exchange and find a policy that meets the minimum standards set by the ACA at an affordable price.

President Obama apologized for this unintended consequence. Health Insurance is still purchased on a free market exchange. The policies provided on these exchanges are regulated to meet minimum coverage standards. The President has no control over what measures the Health Insurance Executives take to continue to express their opposition to actually having to pay your health care expenses, rather than counting your monthly premium payment as pure profit.

The Health Insurance Executives could have upgraded your policy to meet minimum standards at no additional charge, but they didn't. The Health Insurance Executives chose to send cancellation letters instead.

Well, its a decent start.
Maybe he can now start apologizing for all the other crap that he has brought down on the American People.


really?.....bush didn't even apologize for faking facts about Iraq...and it cost thousands of American lives...but, this president has to apologize for trying to get milllions of people healthcare.

tell me..would you lie to get your son cancer treatment???...

screw this...Obama should step up to the plate...and look right into the camera, and say... i'm trying to get you healthcare that you can count on, intstead of losing your ass if you have some type of illness, and your insurance company says "sorry, we don't cover that".....

and what if he had private conversations with the insurance CEO's at that time, and they said, they would be fine with it, and told him they would not drop people...

They all want war, again didn't you see the effort just a couple months ago by the current administration? It's all part of the agenda and anyone who says otherwise is an "extremist" according to them.


Yeah but obama and kerry whimped out (luckly)

Mccain would have ignored everyone and plowed ahead anyway.

Maybe it just delayed things? Who knows.

All im saying is i doubt thinks would be much diffrent if the sheep had voted the otherway and obama lost and im dam sure ATS would not be singing the praise of president Mccain. Eitherway you were stuffed.


war isn't just about weapons or fighting enemies yourself, try to remember that when making democrats seem more innocent, do you not remember syria, lybia, egypt, etc? democrats have always preferred deception, subversion and infiltration of opponents ranks, they are the same monster as republicans, but they just play the good guys on the surface. the good guy-bad guy routine always is effective in wearing down a persons defenses and making them act just as desired, in a way which they find useful, it's why the cycle continues as it always has regardless of form or name.
both parties originated from the same single party after all yet both look like the federalists which their predecessors originally opposed back then.

OMG, you are so very right! I remember hearing about this meeting. Maybe the Dems told him to to stop the bull or that he will forever tarnish the party?

You know this party business does anger me to no end. Our representatives should vote with their heart and brains instead of following one another like a bunch of sheep. The dems voted 100% to not protect the "keep your coverage" promise. You mean to tell me that every last one of them think the same? Yeah right, huh?



Don't you know it's the American way to follow one another like sheep to the slaughter house!
I don't know why we are all surprised to see what happens when we get there!
Only in apathy has America gotten to this point and only in apathy will it
continue!

Apologies are cheap. What you do is put all of those people that lost their insurance on a special version of ObamaCare plan, at the rate that they were paying when they lost their personal insurance, and the coverage that they had, until the new plan has all the bugs out of it. Then, deal with how to get them affordable insurance using the full resources of ObamaCare.

You are mistaken, Barry Sotero Did NOT Apologize! Please correct this.


Barry said he is Sorry! People, this is Not an apology!

Saying your sorry is that, your sorry! This is much different.


I want Him to Apologize for being the lying trash he is.

The insurance companies and government are smart, in an evil kind of way that is. Its called ponerology.

Since millions could never afford to pay outrageous premiums to private companies, and business wasnt as profitable as it could be, just use the government as leverage(a crutch) to force your greed on the populace.

Who needs healthy competition when you are "too big to fail"? Supply and demand is capitalist and the bilderberger "socialists" wont have any of it. I use "socialist" in the loosest possible way but I am sure millions will take it at face value.

Whatever. I am tired of the neocons "bashing" the neoliberals. I was kinda hoping that everyone would see it as a freakin bailout for the insurance companies by now. Auto companies got one, banks got one, foreign nations get them all the time, etc.

Keep bailing out business and the hell with the people.

Oh, I love the defense of blame Bush.

The last straw of any loser progressive is to resort back to Bush.

Oh, and lieing to get my child cancer treatment is the farthest stretch I have ever heard.

And I don't need the douchebag 0bama to get me anything. Nor the Govt. Neither know what's best for me, or have any bone in their bodies that are actually doing me any favors. Maybe you truly need the Govt to protect you from yourself. That really is the saddest thing I have read. No wonder you keep pressing for this stuff. You actually need the Govt to make your choices for you.


It was a good start, but seeing as 0bama stopped short of actually saying sorry, and used his mastering of semantics to basics tell people he was sorry they misunderstood him.

Obama is a big screw up and a class A A hole. There is no denying that.


But people do seem to forget that Bush was too and why you have a militised police state and out of control NSA. He was not for small goverment, at least not where freedom and law were concerned! And his foreign policy would make the founding father throw up in there mouths.

I think most are worried people will foget that and automatically vote repulican next time, whene neither the Republicans or Democrates should get your vote. Just rember that next time your in your voteing booths.

And yes Im a Brit but what baffoon you vote in next affects us as the UK always gets dragged into US busissness in someway

I could care less what a Brit has to say about us.

Bush has been out of office for some time now.
It is the all 0bama show. Has been for years now.

0bama needs to be booted out of office, along with most of Govt.

Yes but you need to rember what HIS party and HIS administration started. Otherwise you could vote for the next republican candidate and chances are you will still be in the exactly the same mess you are in now. Republican or Democrates? Does it matter anymore surely after the last baffoon and the current baffoon you have now it shows there is no diffrence between the too? And that you need a diffrent party and a diffrent option right? Or you will just get screwed still just by politican of a diffrent name. You want a smaller freerer goverment right? I dont see the mainstram republicans wanting to cut back on the NSA, the militrised police or wanting a more isolated USA foreign policy? They seem to be in the same bed as the democrates.

Not needed. I don't poke my nose in the business of YOUR country. I guess expecting the common courtesy of the same is too much to ask.

Well aware of this.

People confuse neoliberals for progressives and neoconservatives for normal conservatives, when they are anything but that. Neoliberals and Neoconservatives are both new world globalist orientated satanic scum.

And please do with less sensationalism. Your country is suffering from the same people on a smaller degree. Everyone likes to # on america, yet its very easy to recall who attacked libya and who wanted to attack syria as well. Its also easy to recall who was the biggest imperialist before world war 2....

Cheers
