  •  He didn't fudge enough (1+ / 0-)

    Politicians always have to be very careful not to be too specific.  They need to hedge and fudge and be vague.  This is a perfect example of why.  

    This is a media issue if there ever was one.  The substance is not the point, it's only a matter of parsing what Obama said years ago.  It's like arguing over the definition of "sexual relations."  

    But I agree - let them keep their crap insurance for now - they will eventually realize that they are getting a bum deal.   One of the good things about the ACA is that medical insurance is now a major public policy issue.  Abuses won't be happening in the dark anymore.
