White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer claimed Sunday on ABC’s This Week that millions of Americans lost insurance their insurance policies because ObamaCare had deemed them inadequate.
[I]f the president were to allow people to have those plans…or insurance companies to keep selling barebones plans…he’d be violating even more important promise to the American people, that everyone would have a guarantee to access of quality…health insurance[.]
Ex-Obama advisor Dr Ezekiel Emanuel (and University of Pennsylvania Vice Provost) said much the same thing on Sunday’s Fox News Sunday.
WALLACE: Dr. Emanuel, simple question—why does Betsy Tadder need you or President Obama telling her what insurance she needs?
EMANUEL: For two reasons: first of all, if she goes in and that insurance doesn’t cover enough…
WALLACE: But she likes her plan.
EMANUEL: But we’re cost shifting.
Plainly our Know Better Progressive Government is the only one qualified to decide. Not us, not about our insurance, not about our money.
