Now, if you had one of these substandard plans before the Affordable Care Act became law, and you really like that plan, you were able to keep it. That's what I said when I was running for office. That was part of the promise we made. But ever since the law was passed, if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel the substandard plans, what we said under the law is that you have got to replace them with quality, comprehensive coverage because that, too, was a central premise of the Affordable Care Act from the very beginning...
So if you're getting one of these letters [canceling your insurance policy], just shop around in the new marketplace. That's what it's for...
For the fewer than 5% of Americans who buy insurance on your own, you will be getting a better deal. So anyone peddling the motion that insurers are canceling people's plan without mentioning that almost all the insurers are encouraging people to join better plans with the same carrier and stronger benefits and stronger protections, while others will be able to get better plans with new carriers through the marketplace, and then many will get new help to pay for these better plans and make them actually cheaper--if you leave that stuff out, you're being grossly misleading, to say the least.
There is no one, not a single soul, who has been more grossly misleading than this President.
He's got a huge set of brass ones to get out in front of America and make these claims.
A huge set.
I can honestly say at this point in my life that there is no one who disgusts me more than this man.
