Obama Says ‘Sorry’ to Those Who Lost Health Insurance Due to Obamacare

President Obama apologized on Thursday to people who lost their health insurance due to new rules under Obamacare. During an interview with NBC, Obama apologized for promising people that they could keep their healthobama_sorry insurance if they liked it, a promise which turned out to be false.

“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” the president told NBC’s Chuck Todd.

So far millions of health insurers have dropped people from plans that don’t meet Obamacare’s requirements. Insurers are offering consumers more expensive plans to replace the plans they lost, since some of the lost plans were so-called “junk” plans, which are cheaper but don’t offer much by way of health coverage.

“We weren’t as clear as we needed to be in terms of the changes that were taking place”, added Obama.

He went on to say that aides at the White House are working hard to assure Americans and fix this issue.

“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this,” said Obama.

“I’ve assigned my team to see what we can do to close some of the holes and gaps in the law.”

It was confirmed late Thursday that Obama has a White House team working to fix the problem.

Obama did, however, note during the interview that some consumers on the individual market were not as safe as many thought they were.

“The fact of the matter is that a whole lot of people who were in this individual market, who were buying health care on their own, because they’re not gettin’ it through their employer, they might be happy with it this year, and then suddenly next year, the cost got jacked up by 15 percent to 20 percent,” Obama said.

    Read the laws before they are enacted and submit your concerns to your Congress representative. It takes an act of Congress to amend laws. It is best to perfect them before they are enacted.

      s’ann, surely you jest? please recall that empty skirt nancy pelosi said, “you have to wait until it is passed to see what is in it” they gave us nothing to read and POTUS did not read it either, or he is lying to us, which no doubt he is.

      Rob just likes to generate controversy. I would like to think that no one would be that simple as to make Obama’s outcomes a racial issue, especially when they look at Nixon and Bush. Of course he doesn’t know anything about history, and he’s a diehard racist. So, what would you expect to hear from someone who’s a racist from the start? Don’t honor his negativity because he’s part of the American racist epidemic.

        I’m not honoring anyone’s negativity, actually. Rob can cry and ***** about the situation and be as racist as he wants to be. All I’m saying is that all politicians lie. Even Obama. This shouldn’t come off as surprise to anyone.

        Nobody got upset when Bush destroyed our economy. All I’m saying.

    He really did not apologize for lying to the American public over and over and over again. Now there are reports that his administration has known for years that millions would lose their insurance.

    This Administration should consider giving The Nation something for their inconsistency and inconvenience. They need to legalize marijuana because if they don’t the republicans will promise to legalize it and win by a landslide!!

    I have been saying for the past two years this whole thing is a sham and they knew it was a sham when he proposed Obama care. It’s another pay day for the people who control this country and the world. Did you really think a politician was going to have your best interest at hand. People need to wake up and i don’t mean just black people. These are very dangerous and unscrupulous individuals and they don’t care about society it’s every man for himself. The sooner we accept this fact the quicker we can find solutions to this titanic of a country. Obama is the lying political pimp who has it made in the shade. He’s got enough black folks to buy into his b.s. that he will never have to worry about a backlash because we will protect his messed up legacy for years to come. These people who control the world are very smart and have plenty wannabes who want to join their ranks. I’m afraid Obama is one of the wannabes. Oh well let’s all put our heads in the sand like we used to when we were afraid to speak truth to power. That is something we have grown accustomed to in our American experience. We better grow a spine and soon.

        I don’t need America to tell me I’m free i live as a free man by not playing the role of victim and teaching my offspring not to accept that role for themselves. Being knowlegble America and it’s real history is not that hard of an undertaking. There are enough information outlets at your disposal there is no reason for people to be ignorant on any subject. The problem is that most people are lazy and they don’t want to take the time to enlighten themselves so they become a part of the problem with their ignorance. Ignorant people elect ignorant politicians that example is played out every day in congress. You get the government you put the effort into. You are a uninformed electorate you have uninformed government making decisions on your behalf. Face it we are suckers and the people in Washington knows it. Revolution forget about it nothing more than rhetoric and empty anger. This country is going down fast but we won’t acknowledge this reality. This coming climate change era we are about to experience will put things into perspective. I’ll be proven right very soon. Race relations won’t mean **** then.
