On Wednesday evening, the President appeared on NBC to respond to the outcry of people who have now learned that they can keep neither their doctor nor their private insurance under Obamacare. Let me remind you what the President said on Wednesday.
I am sorry they are finding themselves in this position based upon assurances they got from me.
No, Mr. President, they are not finding themselves in this position of losing their doctors and their insurance based upon your assurances. They are finding themselves in the position of losing their doctors and their insurance based on your law and your regulations implementing that law. Period.
The President went on to say,
We’ve got to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.
In fact, the President has been so moved by your outcry that he spent hours today with senior presidential advisor, Valerie Jarrett…playing golf.
