On Sunday, appearing on ABCâ??s This Week with fill-in host Martha Raddatz, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) admitted that Democrats knew full well that Americans would be booted from their health insurance plans as an effect of Obamacare implementation.
When asked whether Democrats were misled by President Obama about whether Americans would be able to keep their plans in the individual insurance market, Gillibrand answered: â??He shouldâ??ve just been specific. No, we all knew.â?ť
She added that the whole point of Obamacare was to â??covering things people need, like preventive care, birth control, pregnancy.â?ť The redistributive nature of Obamacare, Gillibrand stated, was the point of the program; anyone claiming ignorance, therefore, is not telling the truth.
