Aides debated Obama’s “if you like it, you can keep it” insurance lie
Breitbart – 11/3/2013
. . . the White House knew that they were lying, but decided that the lie was necessary to push through Obama’s signature legislation. Jim Margolis, who advised Obama on media in 2008 and 2012, said, “With 20/20 hindsight, maybe this should have been parsed more carefully,” before quickly stating, “The president’s statement seems fair.” Speechwriter Jon Favreau said, “Simplification and ease of explanation were a premium, and that was true throughout the process.”
Ezekiel Emanuel, a former White House Obamacare advisor, said, “We thought we could fulfill the promise with this grandfathering clause.” With somewhere between 7 and 11 million Americans slated to lose their insurance before being forced into other insurance, that obviously wasn’t the case.
