Defending the Indefensible
Barack Obama sent out his cohorts to try and spin Obamacare on the Sunday shows over the weekend. Unfortunately for them, it's hard to defend the indefensible. Dan Pfeiffer, David Axelrod and Ezekiel Emanuel tried their best to spin their way out of this failure. What's amazing to me is that there are still some people who are trying to defend Obamacare and not dealing in reality. Ezekiel Emanuel tried to pin the blame on insurance companies rather than Barack Obama and is precious healthcare law. Apparently people like Emanuel (the architect of Obamacare) are unaware that laws have consequences, and the private market reacting to government regulations is not the fault of private businesses. I don't believe the American public is buying this line, just as Obama tried to pin the blame on "bad apple" insurers last week.
Notice how the administration is now trying to change the original promise of "if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. Period." Dan Pfeiffer has apparently changed the goal post for this administration by telling us that if your plan "hasn't been changed or canceled," you can keep it. Are you kidding me? How about the millions of Americans who are losing their plans or seeing them change dramatically? This administration seems to want to downplay how many Americans are being effected, but the AP estimates that it is upwards of 3.5 million already, and that is without data from all 50 states. When all is said and done, a Daily Caller report estimates that 129 million Americans will lose their current health coverage. But if you ask the New York Times, they are now claiming that the president simply "misspoke" in promising you could keep your current coverage. What a joke. No wonder Americans have a hard time taking the mainstream media seriously...more.
HealthCare.gov Users Warn of Security Risk, Breach of Privacy
Tom Dougall, a lawyer from South Carolina and Steve Bucci of the Heritage Foundation, joined Sean on today’s show to discuss a breaking news story about a mix-up of information with two Obamacare enrollees. Justin Hadley from North Carolina logged on to HealthCare.gov to evaluate his insurance options after his health plan was canceled. What he discovered was an apparent security flaw that disclosed eligibility letters addressed to individuals from another state. If you were concerned about the ACA before, you should be scared to death at this point about what the government is actually doing with your private, personal information.
