Obama had a sit down with the ever annoying Chuck Todd where he apologized and said he was sorry but ONLY 5% are losing their policies. Barack Hussein Obullshitter.

“Obama told NBC News”

It will be uncomfortable for Obama’s lapdog, that POS Brian Williams, to report this story as until now he hasn’t mentioned that there any issues with O’care.

He didn’t apologize for lying though did he.... He is just a perpetual lying sack o s%*@.

No, just said a random 'sorry' - like a little kid that isn't sorry but mom(Jarrett) says 'say you're sorry'.....'I'm sorry'
Not even a 'I was wrong....' 'changes needed....'

Damn right. The this entire ACA thing was never intended to ‘work’. It was designed to help destroy America by the total disaster that will be unleashed when 50 million, (pick a number), formerly covered Americans lose their healthcare plans. The ACA is just one part, (there are more than a few in place right now, working...working...working), of the globalist’s, and their current front-man Obama, overall master plan to plunge America into a total nightmarish hell. My old can feels that that time is very close.....

Zactly.

An apology is one part contrition of conscience and part acting to ensure there is a thoughtful change of action to remedy.

This is important.......he DID NOT SAY, “I am sorry for the situation I put them in”

He DID say, “I am sorry THEY are finding THEMSELVES in this situation, based on assurances they got from me”

Yes, I gave the assurances but THEY THEMSELVES got into this situation for misunderstanding my assurances. He isn’t sorry for giving false information, he is sorry for THEIR situation.

Pure bullsh$t.

If he REALLY was sorry, he’d get my insurance provider to reverse the 100% premium increase set to take place the first of the year on the policy I wanted to keep! Too late, the damage has been done.

This is actually in response to McAuliffe almost losing Virginia. It was NOT supposed to be close. The Shutdown was going to be Valerie J’s crowning political achievement. You better believe the War Room in the White House Basement was running full throttle Tuesday night, with deep analysis over the past several days.

They can see what’s coming next November if they don’t do something.

The media, of course, knows this and is cheering them on to do something also.

Generally when you’ve injured someone, not only is an apology in order, but it’s incumbent upon you to make good the injury.

I wonder if the insurance companies weren’t all for this. They’ll make millions more but obama will take the heat.

Or obama knew this so he could get to single payer. If that’s the case, the insurance companies just helped him put themselves out of business.

I watch and hear the pundits lamenting over and over that Obama misled....at some point I must ask....let’s just all agree he lied and move on.

You come and find a favored dish broken on the floor. Son says he did nothing. Later is discovered video showng him knocking it over in a rage.

We spend days talking about this? Mother says “maybe he didn’t realize...”; Father says “he did have a cold, hearing wasn’t all there....”.

I mean come on, people are making careers out of discussing Obama’s lies when us boobs out here in la-la land with children breaking dishes and lying about it all the time are ready to move freaking on.

The signs are there folks, I mean this. Ken Cuchinelli should have won that race....sign the Dems are so desperate, they spent some 32 million is it?.. to win that race.

Dems march up to White House....allegedly Dems up for election but seriously....this is was it is folks.

The political class might not understand, the chattering class wants to keep talking but yon readers know what’s going to happen.

We’re not buying their stupid plan.

I don’t know how but the people of this country are going to reject this. THAT’s what happens when you lie.

Lying I a fine sport; I admire liars. I don’t even think liars are necessarily sinners. The angler fish is a creature born with a lie sticking out of his head to look like a worm to attract passing fish.

It’s the BELIEVERS of liars that will be culled from the planet. All good liars are doing is surviving with the fittest. The passing fish believing it is a worm dangling from the angler fish head....they don’t live to have children, pass their genes.

Obama is a born liar. I think that’s actually an occupation in Kenya . He’s good at it.

But overdoing the lying has consequences. We will, yon country class read my words:
-have nothing to do with Obamacare....don’t know how but it just ain’t going to happen.

That’s cause of the lie they thought they could get away with.

-never believe another word coming out of Obama’s mouth.

Cause out here in la-la land we got kids lying to us all the time and we figure things out.

A law binding us all in the most important thing in our life, our health and the health of those we love was passed based on a lie. This would never have happened if Obama had lied like he did.

Of course the pubs aren’t going to do anything about it, maybe raise that fact somewhere during the time they should be doing their job?

But the people of this country are going to rise up mightily against this.

They ought to thank me for telling them this in advance.

LIKE if you enjoyed this post....no wait...that’s Facebook, right?

Here’s more;
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/11/obama-tells-americans-losing-coverage-im-sorry/

“I regret very much that what we intended to do, which is to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want them, as opposed to because they’re forced into it.”

Now who would ever have to be forced to buy a better plan? Incoherent.

Senate Democrats supported rule that led to insurance cancellations
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/10/31/senate-democrats-supported-rule-that-lead-to-insurance-cancellations/

In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.

Under the grandfathering regulation, according to the White House's own economic impact analysis, as many as 69 percent of businesses will lose their grandfathered status by 2013 and be forced to buy government-approved plans,” the Iowa Republican(Chuck Grassley) said.

The rule essentially prevents insurance companies from keeping their grandfathered status if they make changes to their plans. In practice, insurance companies are loath to leave their plans unchanged so grandfathered plans are disappearing, and people are being forced to change their plans to meet Obamacare’s more robust coverage requirements.
