Top Dem admits ObamaCare could have been 'more precise' about people losing health plans
Published October 29, 2013 FoxNews.com
A top Democratic official conceded Tuesday that the health care overhaul should have been "more precise" in acknowledging the possibility that some Americans would lose their current insurance plans -- even as the White House defended its past statements on the law.
The admission from House Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer comes after a 2010 document emerged that predicted millions might be dropped by their providers.
The document helped explain why thousands are already getting cancellation notices and being guided toward new plans. It also gave new meaning to Nancy Pelosi's infamous remark, shortly before the complex legislation was approved in March 2010, that "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."
Hoyer said Tuesday that officials knew some health plans would not qualify under the new ObamaCare regulations. He said the overall message to the public was accurate -- just not precise enough.

More precise HA they intended to deceive. Let the outraged deceived roar.
Could have been honest.
“Mistakes were made”?
These guys wouldn’t recognize the truth if it whacked them in the PP.
Democrats didn’t know. No one told them.
Actually, “accuracy” is the quality of being as close to the real or actual value as possible; in this case, the real value is the absolute truth.
“Precision” is the ability to recreate or repeat a level of accuracy multiple times.
So, if we take Old Steny at his word, then Obama is both a liar, and a chronic liar, as he was neither accurate, nor, according by Hoyer, precise enough.
Sign zee papers.
On a related note, I’m thoroughly enjoying the Obamacare threads over at DU where anyone pissed at the administration over this fiasco is accused of being a right-wing troll.
"Look, we needed to do this but you would never have agreed if we told you the truth, so we had to lie. But it's really for your own good. You'll understand and thank us for it later."
Does anyone really think that the timing here is incidental? That all this crappola is suddenly being splashed on the front pages and blaring from the TV sets now? With the midterms exactly one year away and the nationals a good three years away?
This is a classic exercise in damage control. They get the bad news out and have plenty of time to talk it to death, minimize the negative impacts, and by the time the elections roll around in the future, it's all "old news".
we couldn’t know how precise it was until we voted for it.
Every Democrat needs to be voted out of office— The party should be punished for slavishly following Obama. Same with the MSM—No one should by their Propaganda Papers or watch their TV news. No one should buy from the people who sponsor their lies. Boycott the Party and MSM of Lies and Anti-Americanism.
Do we have to be “more precise” doing our taxes?
“They get the bad news out “
I do think this is worse news than they wanted to admit to.
Did they want to insult their believers this badly?? ok of necessity they did — thought the believers would not notice as much as they have noticed . . .
so let us help the former deluded believers REMEMBER come a month or a year from now. Makes great theatre too!
Wish I were better at utube etc. I have an imagination about costumes for ObamaScare == this 31 Oct is a great opportunity to use satire and humor to place o Scare in its place. Too bad I do not have the media or video skills to launch it.
More precise than “nobody”? That’s crazy and silly.
It was a lie, not an imprecise statement.
This is nothing short of a lie. If this was any corporation there would be people already in jail.
Those people are evil. Plain and simple.
Satan is the Father of lies. And lying runs rampant in the Democ-RAT party.
I agree with you.
but: [paraphrasing] ours was to do or die, not to reason why; charge of the Light Brigade . . .
For this time, let them fall on their own swords of hubris for this o scare monstrosity; we do reason why and we will not die for o care lies.
