(EXAMINER) Every single Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee has voted down an amendment to ensure that this government takeover will not involuntarily force people out of the coverage they want.
This has been an central talking point of Obama’s from the beginning: “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.”
We’ve seen this time and time again. As I previously noted, Democrats also indignantly rejected any notion that ObamaCare would end up covering illegal immigrants…but then turned around and voted down every single attempt to add any kind of verification measures to the legislation.
And then I also pointed out how Obama-apologists insisted that HR 3200 wouldn’t be used to fund abortions…only to turn around and reject any and all amendments to actually ban such funding…and now this.
Actions speak louder.
This is why Democrats keep losing ground with the American people.
This is reminiscent of Obama’s campaign pledge made repeatedly in 2008 against imposing any tax increases “of any kind” on people making less than $250,000/year…which he already violated when he passed a national tax hike on cigarettes.
