In an interview with Laural Porter about the disastrous roll-out of ObamaCare, Congressman Kurt Schrader was asked explicitly about the President’s line, “if you like your health care plan you can keep it,” which millions of Americans are learning is not true.
Interestingly, this was Schrader’s response:
“I think the President was grossly misleading to the American public…So I think the president saying you could stay with it and not being honest that a lot of these policies were going to get cancelled was grossly misleading to the American public and is causing added stress and added strife as we go through a really difficult time with health care.” — Congressman Kurt Schrader [watch here]
But it wasn’t just the President who was “grossly misleading.” On Kurt Schrader’s OWN WEBSITE, he carries the President’s water and parrots his false rhetoric:
“If you are insured and are happy with your current coverage, nothing changes. You will still benefit from all the efforts to drive down the overall costs of health care. The ACA has many tools in place to help develop a more efficient health care delivery system focused on quality of care, not quantity of care.” [LINK]
But wait, there’s more! In 2010 Kurt Schrader posted a summary of the health care law where he said:
“Individuals and families are required to have health care and pay a part of their premiums and co-pays unless they are very poor and qualify for Medicaid as outlined above. If individuals like their current plan they may keep that plan for as long as they would like under the final proposal. These grandfathered plans will have most of the same consumer protections added as in the newer qualified plans.”
“After being a loyal ObamaCare foot soldier for years, Kurt Schrader is blatantly misleading voters in the face of changing political winds and the law’s botched rollout. Maybe next time Schrader will read his own website before such an obvious attempt to deceive voters.”– Alleigh Marré, NRCC Spokeswoman
