AWFUL! O-Care Architect Ezekiel Emanuel Blames Insurance Companies for Cancelled Plans
These people are shameless.
Obamacare architect and former White House adviser, Ezekiel Emanual, had the gall today to blame insurance companies for cancelled insurance plans due to Obamacare.
More than two million Americans have already lost their health care coverage due to Obamacare.
Obama officials in 2010 knew that up to 93 million Americans would be unable to keep their health insurance plans under Obamacare. That means roughly one of three Americans will lose their insurance thanks to Obamacare.
Emanuel was a guest on FOX News Sunday.
FOX News reported:
The architect of the Affordable Care Act insisted on “Fox News Sunday” that President Obama isn’t to blame for the rocky rollout of ObamaCare and deflected charges that the administration misled Americans about being able to keep their current health plans.
Ezekiel Emanuel, a bioethicist, was part of the president’s health care reform team for two years and is the brother of former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
“We grandfathered in plans,” Emanuel said.
Host Chris Wallace pressed Emanuel to defend the growing number of cancellation notices sent to people whose plans changed after the law was implemented, but Emanuel could not.
Instead, he blamed much of the problems on insurance companies and not the new law.
“The law does not say ‘Sears drop coverage!’ Sears decides what’s good for Sears,” Emanuel said. “The insurance decides how to make money. When the private companies decide to drop an individual, you blame Obama. He isn’t responsible for that.”
