Obama's healthcare speech today
Building on the last post see the video below. I agree with everything he said. He's right that those who complain about people not being able to keep the plan they like aren't telling you the whole story. Obama accurately explained that if that is the case then it is because the plan they have fails to meet Obamacare's minimum standards. And that insurance companies in that case must help you find a plan that does. And that in the minority of cases where premiums and deductibles go up that there may well be subsidies to help you pay for it. So it's true that the naysayers leave all of that out in misrepresenting the issue. But it's also true that Obama didn't explain all this up front and made a misleading statement in the last post. Nevertheless, go Obamacare!
