Pelosi: I’ve never met anyone who liked their insurance plan

posted at 3:21 pm on November 15, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via John McCormack, you should watch all of this but at least skip to 4:50 for Pelosi’s part. What she thought she was accomplishing here, I have no idea. We’ve spent the past two weeks watching a Category Five political sh*tstorm descend on the White House, fueled by story after story in the media about people who are irate over having their coverage dropped. The problem’s severe enough that the president of the United States had to hold a presser yesterday at which he proposed a “fix” that’ll actually make his signature policy initiative less sustainable economically, just to stop Democratic incumbents in Congress from abandoning him entirely. And standing in the middle of all this is Pelosi, musing aloud that for all the angst among voters about mass cancellations, she personally has … never met a soul who liked their coverage. Not one. Which, she says, is why she herself never made the “if you like your plan” promise — a lie, as it turns out, per McCormack’s post. But see, this is why I grudgingly have more respect for her than for The One. She’s completely committed to the boondoggle she foisted on America, to the point where she’s willing to tell a room full of reporters with a straight face something that would have produced a good three or four days’ worth of “out of touch” coverage if a Republican had said it. She’s like DeNiro at the end of “Cape Fear,” staring at Nick Nolte as the water keeps rising. You might beat her but you’ll never break her.

Case in point: Here’s what her office is circulating this afternoon.

The only meaningful difference between Upton’s plan and the “Landrieu-lite” plan being pushed by the House Democratic leadership is that Upton’s bill lets insurers sell un-canceled plans to new customers too, not just to those whose coverage has been dropped. The Democratic bill will thus mitigate the effects of adverse selection somewhat, but it too keeps the “broken market” in place by allowing the sale of “sub-standard” policies just like Upton’s proposal does. That’s the big takeaway here — every proposal on the table, from Upton’s to Obama’s to Landrieu’s to “Landrieu-lite,” is a rebuke to the core redistributive idea of ObamaCare, i.e. forcing healthy people into more expensive coverage to subsidize the sick. Democrats wanted cancellations by the millions; the more “young healthies” who are gouged, the more sustainable the law is. The fact that Pelosi’s office is now circulating a side-by-side “keep your plan” comparison between Republican and Democratic is the height of dishonesty insofar as it suggests they ever hoped people would keep their plans in the first place. She’s never met a person who liked their old plan. Why would she care which side has the better idea to keep those old plans intact? But that’s Nancy for you. She’s going down fighting. No apologies.

Do try to watch the whole thing if you have time, though. They’re still selling this as something they’re doing for healthy people rather than at their expense.

Lol on this. I’m looking at the default image of the Steny Hoyer video, and you see the uber-leftist James Clyburn standing back but with an eagle eye on Steny, and you get the sense that Clyburn is controlling Hoyer, that the super leftist Clyburn is the driving, even if usually hidden, power behind the Democratic party.

If Clyburn remains in charge, there is no way they are repealing Obamacare. Clyburn was a key player in fashioning Obamacare. At some point I expect the bulk of the Dems to say “you know what, we’ve had enough of Clyburn & Obamacare!”

More choice, with a high quality public health insurance option competing with private insurers

She probably didn’t know. No one seems to know what’s said and done in their name in Washington. It’s the single most incompetent bunch of losers I’ve ever heard of.

Since Ms. Pelosi suggests she doesn’t like her health care insurance plan… she should give it up… and sign up for Obamacare.

As a matter of fact, Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, and the every single Democrat in the political class should have been the FIRST in line to sign up for Obamacare in order to demonstrate to the nation that Obamacare is the best insurance system possible and lives up to all their pronouncements about its benefits for the American people.

Why didn’t they?

thatsafactjack on November 15, 2013 at 3:44 PM

From Michael Cannon:

Set aside the president’s disregard for the U.S. Constitution, the separation of powers, and the rule of law generally. Here’s how his fix alters – where it leaves – his once-categorical “if you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan” promise:

If your insurer hasn’t already cancelled your plan prior to October 1, 2013, and

If you had coverage in effect on October 1, 2013, and

If your insurer wants to invest in re-issuing your already-cancelled plan for just one more year, and

If your state’s insurance commissioner wants to let your insurer re-issue that plan, and

If your insurer and your commissioner can get your old plan re-approved by January 1, and

If your insurer informs you how lousy your old plan was and how awesome ObamaCare plans are, even though they may charge you more for less coverage, and

If your insurance commissioner does not mind approving products that are clearly illegal under federal law, and

If you and your insurer don’t mind engaging in an economic transaction that is clearly illegal under federal law, and

If you trust me when I promise not to prosecute any of you for your clear violations of federal law,

Then you can keep your plan, for one more year.

Does that seem like a fix? It certainly doesn’t seem likely to work.

An epic clusterfark.

Sayeth a woman that hasn’t ever had to spend much time thinking about her own health coverage.

Happy Nomad on November 15, 2013 at 3:50 PM

Nancy Pelosi is just insane. No doubt about it. When they started this health care push back in 2009, about 85 percent of Americans were satisfied with their coverage. That was the whole reason they used the “keep your plan” lie.

TarheelBen on November 15, 2013 at 3:52 PM

Well, her delusion is understandable because a) she’s in a very safe district, b) she knows the media won’t call her out like they would a GOPer for remarks so asinine, and c) she’s certifiable.

Now, do people like to gripe about insurance? Yep. But, you know what they hate worse? Being forced to pay more for things they don’t need/want, all the while possibly losing their doctor and/or network in the process. That’s what these delusional Dems do not understand…why in the hell would anyone be grateful for that crap sandwich?

Indeed, but to LIV’s, they won’t see that level of detail – all they’ll see is that Obama benevolently came out and said they could, in fact, keep their policies, and the GOP helped the Dems pass a bill that said they could.

If they remain angry, it will no longer be 100% against Obama and the Dems – it will be towards the evil insurance companies, and if they *are* angry with DC, the GOP now gets to own part of it.

Not seeing any political advantage for GOP, no improvement for citizens, and no advancement towards doing away with ACA once and for all. Obama/Dems, on the other hand, get to redirect some/most of the wrath towards the insurance companies, get more time with less pressure to get the website/exchanges working, with more backdoor subsidies to get more people in it and somewhat happy with it, and if it does blow up in their faces again in the future, they get to pull the GOP into the path of the incoming shitstorm alongside them.

I guess we’ll see. Let’s not pretend that gutting the funding mechanism means it can’t be funded. SS’s funding mechanism (among others) has been gutted for quite awhile – still being funded!

Effectively the GOP has removed the biggest threat to the Dems for 2014 in order to let it blow up again right after?

Look there’s a *reason* the Dems have been freaking out for the last couple of weeks. There’s a *reason* a number of them joined Republicans today on that vote, and a *reason* a number of them in the Senate are jumping on a similar bandwagon, and a *reason* many in the MSM are also freaking out lately.

Simple question – if *they* think this Upton bill and similar actions are the right course of action for *them* to take right *now* when they are *freaking out* and frightened for their political lives – why do *you* think it’s a good thing for *us*?

Clyburn. They send you a declarations page with your insurance policy. Read it. We all know you idiots don’t read bills, but it’s not just a paper weight.
Becerra. Am I supposed to feel guilty for other people’s choices in life, living in Kalifornia??? First. Who isn’t aware that to live there, you gave to make at least $100k a year? And, second. Who’s policies have made it so that your idiot constituents, yes, they are stupid for voting a rat like you into office. You will not give them a hand up, just a hand out and keep them dumb and poor, anyway, who has shed jobs so that 90 million are no longer working in this country? There’s been a rat in the White House five years now. Go smoke that one and stop making excuses.
If you don’t work hard, you don’t get sh!t. You don’t get an education, at least finish high school, have or are a baby momma, yeah, you will live on the plantation forever.
Stop blaming everyone else.

“never met a soul who liked their coverage”

Yo Cupcakes…… I LOVE MY COVERAGE….. 15 or 20 years ago I decided not to buy into the ….fear mongering propaganda that gets shoveled at you every day……. insurance BS…… long story short….. I invested what would of been monthly premiums in myself and my family instead of giving it away to the insurance mafia….. sure some things have happened and some dollars have been expended on health care costs….. but by my figuring …. I’m up about 1.5 million….. do I love being self insured… You Bet ya !!!!

The GOP is stupid to offer anything at this point. No matter it is, it will get blamed. Better to wait for the public (70%) to demand action.
