Wasserman Schultz: 'Nothing' Obama or I Said About Obamacare Is Untrue

On Tuesday, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Tuesday blustered that “nothing” she or President Barack Obama said about ObamaCare before it was passed by Congress and later brought to fruition “was not true.”

Wasserman Schultz was responding to host Chris Jansing, who mentioned Obama’s promise that American could “keep their plans” and added, “It has infuriated a lot of the 3 percent or so of Americans who actually can’t do that and, frankly, has upset a lot of the other people who felt misled…Did the president, congresswoman, knowingly oversimplify this and provide an opening, frankly, for opponents of the ACA?”

Wasserman Schultz decided to deflect the blame to insurance companies by saying they “chose to change the plan that they were making available to people that they already insured in the individual market…At the end of the day, most of those people who are having their plans transitioned will have better benefits for lower costs. All they have to do is go on the exchange and shop around, which arguably needs to be easier than it is now. So, no, there was nothing about what President Obama or that I or any other Democrat supporting the Affordable Care Act said that was not true.”
