U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, on Friday defended President Barack Obamas decision to allow health insurers to issue plans for one more year that do not meet the standards set out by the Affordable Care Act, as a transitional move.
What the presidents done is said no one for a year, no insurance company, needs to cancel its coverage because of the Affordable Care Act, Warren said, speaking to reporters after an Associated Industries of Massachusetts breakfast at the Westin Hotel in Waltham. Theyre trying to make the transition work. Theyre trying to do everything they can to make it work and get people into the system.
However, asked whether individuals should be able to keep their current insurance plans indefinitely if they do not meet the minimum standards laid out by the Affordable Care Act, Warren did not say yes or no, but implied that she agreed with the changes required by the new law. I think what were looking for is to get people coverage that means something, Warren said. We do not sell cars with three wheels. We sell cars that travel on our highways and that have some basic standards of safety. And thats what were talking about with insurance, making sure that if people are paying for insurance, theyre getting some insurance.
Warrens statement echoed Obamas comments in a speech on health care he gave in Boston last month, in which the president referred to the plans that were cancelled as cut rate plans that dont offer real financial protection in the event of serious illness or accident.

Heap big lie.
If you see Axelgrease, Gibbs, and Plouffy lining up in the Squaw Warren camp, expect her to try for the Third Obama Term.
white squaw speak w/ forked tongue.
Notice they want to call it the Affordable BS Act now.
President Warren will make sure the ACA becomes everything it can be.
Of course. She is channeling her inner Geronimo.
Massistan is one of the few states where a Senator could do this, even if she was up for election.
So she's defending illegal actions, by an illegal alien, to support an illegal "law", designed to destroy America.
Warren, Franken ... Dewey, Cheatem and Howe.
The left side of the senate is a joke.
Governments are indeed chiefed by the double-tongues.
Someone post/send that ignorant ....woman....a picture of a 3 wheel car...
Obama Didn't Build That Alone - He Had Help....
Does Senator Pocahontas Warren realize yet that her State of Massachusetts, Romneycare does not meet the standards either, and pretty soon her constituents will be ready to scalp her.
One liar vouching for another liar.
Is that really true? MA RomneyRatCare does not meet the ObammyCrapCare standards?
Dang, if so, those libs im MA are in for a big surprise.
It's called "blowing to the galleries."
Obamacare states that we pay for gender change operations, abortions, Contraception, and pre-existing conditions, I do not believe Romneycare covers these things. If not then they too face loss of Insurance.
