Here is his new excuse for his "you can keep your health insurance" promise being broken. It is -- wait for it, you will never guess -- insurance companies' fault.
"One of the things health reform was designed to do was to help not only the uninsured but also the under-insured," Obama said. "And there are a number of Americans, fewer than 5 percent of Americans, who've got cut-rate plans that don't offer real financial protection in the event of a serious illness or an accident.
"Remember, before the Affordable Care Act, these bad apple insurers had free rein every single year to limit the care that you received or used minor pre-existing conditions to jack up your premiums or bill you into bankruptcy."
This is absurd. Kaiser Permanente cut zillions of policies. Are they a bad apple? My policy was cut by Blue Cross / Blue Shield of Arizona. Are they some fly-by-night cut-rate insurer?
