Skip to comments.Lawmakers push to keep Obama's health care pledge (Joe Donnelly's son loses coverage)

Little more than a week after millions of consumers received health care cancellation notices, lawmakers in both parties are pushing legislation to redeem President Barack Obama's long-ago pledge that anyone liking their coverage will be allowed to keep it under the nation's controversial new law.
The result is a stern new challenge for the White House as it struggles to fix website woes for the signup portal for those seeking to enroll under the law, and simultaneously copes with angry consumers who rightly or wrongly blame "Obamacare" for cancellation letters mailed by insurers.
Democratic officials said top administration aides got a close-up view of the cancellation controversy last week, when Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said at a closed-door meeting of the party's rank and file that his son had received notice his coverage was being terminated. . . .

Joe Donnelly’s NSA file will put a stop to this kind of talk.
“...lawmakers in both parties are pushing legislation to redeem President Barack Obama’s long-ago pledge that anyone liking their coverage will be allowed to keep it...”
Republicans shouldn’t touch this steaming pile of feces with anyone else’s 10’ pole!
Young Mr. Donnelly needs to take it up with Kathleen Sebilius. Some get insurance and some lose insurance. That’s life under the lefty boot heel.
Young Mr. Donnelly needs to run for public office. Problem solved.
I wonder if the young mr. donnolly is smacking his father around for voting for this obomination?
Rumor is his son is gay so most likely an Obama voter himself.
so the republicans are going to try and save obamacare instead of sinking it...
""A promise was made that if you like your health plan, you can keep it - and I will do everything I can to see that the promise is kept," said Landrieu, who is gearing up for what is expected to be a challenging re-election campaign next year."
It's the law of the land, Sen. Landrieu, get over it.
“Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said at a closed-door meeting of the party’s rank and file that his son had received notice his coverage was being terminated. . . .”
Sucks to be your son, but, there are winners and losers in Socialism, too...it’s for the collective good, right?
Maybe you can get your kid a government job...while you still have one yourself!
The guy seems like a fairly conservative (D), but, he owns this mess along with every senator who voted for it.
..or as the RATS have said, he needs to “get over it”.
In 2010, the “Dishonorable” Sen. Landrieu had the opportunity to vote for a bill sponsored by Mike Enzi-R that was identical to the one she’s come up with.
Hazard a guess as to how she (and the rest of her suddenly surprised and irate Rat colleagues) voted?
