House Democrats held a press conference on Thursday following President Obama’s press conference on Obamacare.
They refused to apologize for repeatedly lying to the American people.
Over 5 million Americans have lost their health insurance so far thanks to Obamacare.
The Weekly Standard reported:
At a press conference Thursday evening, House Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Xavier Becerra, and Jim Clyburn were asked if they would like to apologize for making the same false claim. All of them declined.
“I don’t think there’s anything for us to apologize for,” said Clyburn.
“There is nothing in the Affordable Care Act that said that your insurance company should cancel you,” said Minority Leader Pelosi.
In fact, the Affordable Care Act says that plans created after March of 2010 must be cancelled, and the law also gave the administration the authority to write regulations that forced the cancellation of some policies that existed prior to March 2010.
“Did I ever tell my constituents that if they liked their plan they could keep it?” Pelosi asked. “I would have if I’d ever met anybody who liked his or her plan. But that was not my experience.”
In fact, Pelosi said in 2009: “If you like what you have, you can keep it.” Pelosi’s website still states: “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”
It looks like the Minority leader was just caught in another blatant lie. What a shock.
UPDATE: Here’s more video of Nancy Pelosi saying “if you like what you have you can keep it” at a St. Louis fundraiser for Russ Carnahan.
