Obama: 'I'm sorry' Americans are losing insurance Associated Press
By JULIE PACE 3 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP) Seeking to calm a growing furor, President Barack Obama said Thursday he's sorry Americans are losing health insurance plans he repeatedly said they could keep under his signature health care law. But the president stopped short of apologizing for making those promises in the first place.
"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he said in an interview with NBC News.
Signaling possible tweaks to the law, Obama said his administration was working to close "some of the holes and gaps" that were causing millions of Americans to get cancellation letters. Officials said he was referring to fixes the administration can make on its own, not legislative options some congressional lawmakers have proposed.

The idiot that made everything better...
Thanks for dumping my insurance, fool...
You’re an idiot, Obama. Seriously.
This is no apology.
see my tag line.
It’s akin to the rapist saying he’s sorry for raping his victim while he’s raping her.
The Media should be hung for journalistic malpractice. They are allowing him to get away with this, which is no surprise.
“Tough toenails!” is his meaning.
In a comment awhile back a FReeper said,
“Even when he’s sitting there with his mouth shut, he’s lying.”
Not quite. More like he’s sorry the victim got raped. He’s not sorry he did it, just that it happened.
Haven’t said it in a while, but the Media is the greatest threat to our beautiful Country.

No, I’m not free speech, Libtards... Notice the ‘Media’ proper, fools.
Meanwhile, I've noted the MSM attempts to minimize the debacle. "Some Americans" losing their insurance. "Less than 5%" losing their insurance.
hes sorry the victim is being raped. Hes not sorry he is doing it, just that it is happening.
“They are allowing him to get away with this, which is no surprise.”
Not entirely and it is to soon to tell if the emedia gives him a pass on what clearly, as the yahoo article clearly states, is NOT an apology for his knowingly lying to Americans.
Has the opposition party heard enough yet to start rescinding this monster, or are they content with the entire health care system collapsing and/or a second Great Recession starting this quarter?
Is it moral to wait until next November (meaning passage in March 2015) in order to make it a campaign issue?
Sorry for their losing insurance but not sorry for the lying. The “sorry” was calculated damage control concocted by his handlers who overcame his reluctance.
Here in NY, Excellus said they were dropping 200,000 folks. Seems they have had a meeting with ??? and now they won't be dropping those folks.
Hmmmmmm with a capital "H".
Mia Pope, a supposed friend of Barry Sotoero thinks if he opens his mouth he’s lying.
oh... sorry your burned was house down said the arsonist....sorry you were raped said the rapists....sorry for the murder said the killer....cry - cry - cry.....LIBERALS —
When I was little and I did something bad to someone, my mother would force me to apologize. However, she made a special point to include why I was apologizing. I do not think Obama learned this lesson.
Either way it is all by design, he won’t lose a millisecond of campaign time, Reggie, rock-n-roll Wednesday nights, vacation and golf to fix what he caused.
Agreed , this is not an apology !
This is I am sorry that I got caught screwing up 1/6th of the American economy !
Since this is his "signature legislation" , let us realize that :
it is a tax scheme, that wasn't supposed to be a tax
was encouraged and vetted by Nancy Piglousey : "You gotta Pass it to find out what's in it !!"
that instead of being read for 3 days as promised and is procedure , voted on within 1 1/2 days (hurried legislation)
And is legally : "BAIT AND SWITCH" (= fraud !)..
and this is his "signature legislation" .. for which an apology is NOT an apology .. should be grounds for stupidity by legislation or impeachment !
The fact that Dems, RHINOs , and GOPe support it tells me that "the fix is in ", and that all are conspirators in the demise of the USA for their own self-centered purposes !
Very interesting, but no real surprises from what we have all already heard. However, I suspect that Ms. Pope is going to spend a great deal of time with the IRS and other alphabet agencies as they ruin her life. Dear Leader knows how use the power of the government to attack and destroy those who dare to criticize him. He is only just barely held in check from a full on tyranny.
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 theyre forced into it.
Incoherent, just like the economic policies...being forced into a 'better' policy?
He/they just didn’t plan on it imploding right out of the starter gate.
That’s the only thing he’s sorry about. It was supposed to explode.
He’s sorry all right. LMAO.
His plan for single payer is coming along fine. He isn’t sorry.
I have a comment - if, as they claim, Obama Care will make it better for everyone, why in the hell does he think an apology is in order. He should be telling us that we should thank him.
Are those pictures real? If they are real, that dude is queer as the day is long.
This is no apology.
A TRUE apology also contains the evidence of the currently instituted ACTIONS of how retributions are being instituted to make it right with the parties that were wronged.
I’m sorry baby. I promise I won’t hit you again. Now put down the phone.
Look what you have gone and got yourself into now.
Just imagine if the Government shut-down was still in effect...and Obamacare still didn’t have funding... What would your Senator be doing? My RHINO Senator Byrd would still have his email and phones shut down due to the cost of the shut down...
He should he should have said, “I’m sorry I caused Americans to lose their insurance.”
Obama's 5% comment in the Chuck Todd interview is particularly revealing.
Just who are those 5%? They are most likely independent business owners, who are generally the least tied to government control. All these cancellations, and moving the individuals into government run exchanges are just a way of creating another government-controlled, financial entanglement for people who are trying to maintain some semblance of freedom and independence. That attitude is the true enemy of the Obama administration.
Senator Mike Enzi speaks with Megyn Kelly on his 2010 prediction on the Senate floor that the Obama administration had broken its promise that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it”.
Obama promised on Sept. 26 that people in individual market would keep their plans
Sage advice. This guy is going to try to do a rope a dope now. He hopes everyone argues over the sufficiency of his “apology”. Don’t fall for that trap. The issue is Obamacare not his apology. Follow the example of Kennedy during the missile crisis, Krushchev sent a hardline message during negotiations and Kennedy chose to ignore it and simply responded as if it had not been sent. Same here, ignore it, keep blasting away at Obamacare and this POS’s support of it, how he lied to get it passed, how he threatened those into voting for it, how he miscast its affects, and how it is financially harming many taxpayers especially the middle class. Of course the moochers will not care but we still carry the day barely in a majority so we must stand firm, defeat those 16 senators running for reelection, retake the senate, keep the house and make Oturd’s last two years miserable.
WTF???...You’re sorry you sad sack of s#%t?
Meanwhile, I’ve noted the MSM attempts to minimize the debacle. “Some Americans” losing their insurance. “Less than 5%” losing their insurance.
Did all the Sh*6 start because 10% didn’t have insurance now it looks like 30% (at least)are getting messed around.
I contend that the majority of the people being hurt
are people that
Obama WANTS to hurt.
Clown Prince nobama lies about his lies. LIAR!
Obama is just being true to his Muslim beliefs that allow and even promotes lying if it serves the person’s cause. I think this is what a Muslim calls Tikrit. The man or whatever has been a put on for show since childhood. In the USA such a character has never been encountered before and 50+or- of the people have bought into such.
After Obama’s non-apology apology Republicans should be out there screaming about the insignificant 5% of people losing their insurance. They upended the whole insurance industry for approximately 5% of Americans who DIDN’T have insurance but now the 5% losing insurance are insignificant?!
They keep calling this ‘Obamacare’.
This is just the signup to pay for insurance. When they find out what kind of coverage they will actually get, they will start calling it ZEROCARE.
He’s not sorry. He’s a liar.
would love to play this loser in hoops....opps sorry there about the elbow prez snoop dog.
This will be the same sentiment he taps into in 2016 when he condescends to appear to have apologized that so many people (will) have died; they’re all part of the means to his ends.
