Louisiana Congressman Charles Boustany Says Obama Apology “Doesn’t Cut It”
President Barack Obama has apologized to the American public for those who are losing their health insurance plans because of "Obamacare".
The President is pledging to fix the problem. While touting the Affordable Care Act the President repeatably said, "If you like your plan, you can keep it".
Many people are now facing the fact that their health insurance plans are not acceptable under Obamacare, and because of that the President has had to apologize.
3rd District Congressman Charles Boustany says the President's blanket apology, "doesn't cut it."
Boustany had this to say to day in a press release,
"It's a sad day in America when the leader of our nation must issue an apology for overpromising way beyond his Administration's capability to deliver. In Louisiana, nearly 93,000 citizens will not be able to keep their current health insurance coverage due to Obamacare. Mr. President, 'I'm sorry' will not allow for Americans to keep the health insurance plans they like. 'I'm sorry' will not replace Americans lost medical coverage. 'I'm sorry' will not pay their medical bills. Sorry doesn't cut it. Prove your sincerity by keeping your promise, Mr. President. Halt the implementation of Obamacare by restoring the affordable coverage many Americans want to keep."
The President has promised that he will work to fill some of the gaps in the system that have turned into cancellation letters to millions of Americans.
Louisiana Congressman John Fleming says to Obama, "Spare us the apology." He says, "Mr. President, Louisianians want to hear that the time has come to stop this failed experiment in socialism."
Fleming, in a press release, had this to say about the apology,
" Mr. President, let’s start with the obvious: Louisianians want to know what you’re going to do to stop your disastrous health care law. We found out this week that nearly 93,000 Louisianians will not be able to keep their current health insurance under Obamacare. They don’t want to hear that you 'regret' this is happening, they want you to do something. They don’t care that you’re 'sorry they are finding themselves in this situation.' They were forced into this situation by your law and by the regulations your administration has written to implement Obamacare. You can’t spin this anymore. Louisiana wants to hear that the time has come to stop this failed experiment in socialism, and work with Republicans on real health care reform that will lower costs and not put government in the middle of the doctor-patient relationship."
Congressman Fleming chairs the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs and is a member of the House Armed Services Committee.
