Axelrod Admits Obama’s ‘You Can Keep Your Insurance’ Promise Isn’t True
Their lies are finally starting to get exposed.
Check it out:
Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” David Axelrod, a senior advisor to the President Obama during his first term, admitted that only a “vast majority” of Americans can keep their health insurance plan if they like it. This is the first admission (I am aware of) from a top administration official that President Obama’s relentlessly-repeated solemn promise to the American people that “If you like your insurance plan, you will keep it,” was and is not true.
Here is Axelrod on “Morning Joe” admitting Obama’s promise was phony and attempting to spin his way out of it:
AXELROD: Most people are going to keep their plan, Senator [Coburn], and you know that. The head of Blue Cross in Florida was on television yesterday and said there’s a small number of people being transferred to plans that have a higher quality. Most of them will be subsidized and end up paying less for those plans.
SENATOR TOM COBURN: And double the deductibles
AXELROD: The majority of people in this country — the vast majority — are keeping their plan.”
Though the news coverage is still not accurate (more on that below), the story of middle class Americans losing the health insurance they were happy with and promised they could keep, is finally starting to break through in the mainstream media.
