Skip to comments.Sen Hagan Runs from Obamacare Query on canceled plans (said "Keep It" 24 times; helped write bill)
Posted on 02/26/2014 6:37:17 AM PST by Liz
Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) repeatedly promised on at least 24 separate occasions that North Carolina citizens would be able to keep their existing affordable health care plans once Obamacare went into effect (five years after Obama set it in motion).
However, on Monday, Hagan dodged the question as she announced her re-election. One reporter asks, Much has been made about 'if you like you health care plan you can keep it,' but were still not sure about when exactly you learned that wasnt the case?"
The reporter gets specific: "....you were on a lot of committees that helped write the healthcare bill. Was there a specific time frame a day, a month, a week that you can narrow it, to when you learned that 'Keeping It' wasnt going to be the case?
Hagan ignores the question, then talks about a bill she is sponsoring that will allow people to keep their plans.....she was again pressed in the parking lot but walked away without answering the question.
NOTE: Hagan's vote caused 500,000 people canceled on a population of almost 10 million. Only about 100,000 signed up for ACA (knowing the self-serving Obama admin fudges the numbers). So NC ended up w/ roughly 400k additional uninsured....thanks to Kay Hagan.
White House chief of staff Denis McDonough held an unpublicized meeting with Sen. Michael Bennet (DIMWIT-Colo), chairman of the Senate Democrats campaign arm, amid anger and anxiety that ObamaCares botched rollout could cost the party its majority next year.
In the meeting, requested by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), McDonough and Bennet discussed what the White House could do to help vulnerable Senate Democrats and talked about developing a stronger relationship with the White House.
(That cockamamie idea was quickly discarded. After all, Democrats reasoned, who would believe a ditzy story like that.....other than the brain dead MSM media.)
Democratic senators fear the White House is not sympathetic enough to their plight. After the government shutdown, they were confident they would retain the Senate, maybe even retake the House; but Dem optimism vanished as problems with the healthcare law mounted.
(The buzz is Speaker-wannabe Pelosi disconsolately went back to sucking up everything in sight.)
I know these guys are nervous as hell. I mean, all of their jobs are on the line because Obamacare is the thing making the biggest political waves lately. Its a nightmare, Denis whined.
WATTA RELIEF--DEMOCRATS COME UP WITH THE ONLY WORKABLE SOLUTION Obama recently announced the White House's 2014 Senate strategy: "Keep Obama away." The extensive midterm campaign strategy is built around one unavoidable fact: Hardly any candidates in the most competitive states want President Barack Obama anywhere near them on the campaign trail.
What a nitwit.
Found the comments, at the article, to be as I suspected. Battle Lines are being drawn. It is sad that democRATS decided to try the tactics of divide and conquer on Americans. Americans (real Americans) will be much more intelligent than the democRATS. Though the RATS may win a few battles; Americans will repell the RATS. RATS are much like cockroaches ... When the lights go on the RATS and cockroaches run just as hagan did. Typical RAT and cockroach attitude.
Every Repub attack ad needs to show the competitive Dem with their nose crammed up O’s a$$. I am sure however, that our side will find away to miss that opportunity.
Then in 2010, Hagan had the chance to help her constituents actually keep their plans....as she promised on 24 separate occasions.
On Sept 29, 2010. Sen Mike Enzi (R-Wyo) ANNOUNCED THAT OBAMACARE HAD GRANDFATHERED IN A DANGEROUS CLAUSE THAT WOULD DECIMATE EXISTING AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE PLANS. Sen Enzi offered Senators an opportunity to vote on his amendment to restore affordable plans.
Every single Democrat---INCLUDING KAY HAGAN, MARY LANDRIEU, BOB CASEY, SCHUMER, DURBIN, PRYOR---voted against the Enzi amendment....in a nauseating display of LOCKSTEPPING DEMOCRAT PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-1940's ERA EUROPE
(1) throwing you off your affordable health plans,
(2) burdening North Carolinans w/ ruinous deductibles,
(3) nationalizing 1/16 of the US economy,
(4) installing IPAB's (Death Panels),
(5) abandoning seniors and the chronically ill,and,
(6) decimating intergenerational transfers of wealth (grandma/pa's holdings go to the govt---not to you). Read on.
Ominous cogs in the Obamacare meat grinder----the inexorable forcing of Grandma/pa onto Medicaid--(like cattle herded single-file onto the narrow ramp---knowing the bolt is coming---but not able to do a thing about it).
Medicaid conveniently groups together the sick and elderly---as Obama's IPAB board of radical Boobamba worshippers sit in judgment. Boobamba's Orwellian-speak---the progressive way of saying "Obamacare keeps costs down."
The infamous "Death Panels---are alive and well----but they're not called death panels......for obvious reasons. The treacherous Obama euphemistically calls his death panel "I-PAB----Individual Payment Advisory Board." I-PAB decides what to pay and who to pay---thus rationing medical care to sick oldsters. Obamacare "allows" states to expand their Medicaid recipients pool. Under Obamacare, Washington now covers about 1/2 the cost of Medicaid enrollees.
What is I-PAB?
When you find out about IPAB, you will not believe it - but its r-e-a-l.... a new type of government agency. IPAB (Independent Payment Advisory Board) is the first agency of the fifth branch of govt.
1) It will make all important health care decisions by authorizing payment or not.
2) It is not funded by Congress and cannot have its budget reviewed or changed.
3) Its membership cannot be changed by future Presidents,
4) It cannot be repealed by Congress, except for a six month window in 2017.
5) Its decisions are not subject to judicial review.
6) It is not authorized by the Constitution, and is therefore immune to Constitutional processes.
Why is Obamacre herding seniors WITH ASSETS onto Medicaid---a program structured for the poor? Can you say redistribution of wealth? Herding the elderly with assets into Medicaid has ominous consequences that are intriguing to the left. B/c assets, perhaps a home owned free and clear, securities, annuities, investment property, can be seized to pay for govt treatment.
Thus intergenerational transfers of wealth (a longtime progressive bugaboo)----are decimated (grandma/pa's holdings go to the govt---not to you).
REMINDER: Lock-stepping Sen Kay Hagan helped lock all of this into law.
I was one of the NC citizens with a private individual policy who lost my insurance due to the ACA. In October 2013 I wrote both of my US Senators asking why I can’t keep my insurance. Senator Hagan never responded. Senator Burr gave me the GOP party line about fighting to repeal the bill.
It is clear to me the Democrat Party does not intend to make any changes to the law.
When Senator Hagan responded to the reporter she was co sponsoring legislation to allow people to keep their insurance the follow-up question should have been: “What was the bill number and will you send me a copy of the legislation as introduced, when was it formally introduced, and when will your majority leader Senator Reid bring it to the floor for a vote?” Likely the legislation she is co sponsoring hasn’t been drafted, much less introduced. More empty promises of good intentions.
Those O/Care Dems better not go swimming (cackle).
So another Democrat has been caught lying. This is news?
Republicans voted 34 times to stop Obamacare and the media went after them now the republicans have the we told you so card now they better use it in the next two elections.
Lock-stepping Obama loyalist Sen Harry Reid was the roadblock-—refused to let any bill alter O/Care.
REALITY CHECK Obama's "Keep Your Plan promise" has been cited as The Lie Of The Year." Obamacare was also going to create thousands of jobs......as health industry spox announce thousands of jobs lost based on ACA's medical devices tax.
Election year makes Harry do strange things must be fear.
Harry's just a lab specimen (genus Democrat)---something smeared on a glass slide.
I believe it's actually 1/6 th of the US economy, not 1/16!
