Good morning, turns out Senator Shaheen also knew Americans weren’t going to keep their insurance after supporting a rule in 2010 that led to insurance cancellations. In response, the RNC has launched robocalls and targeted Facebook posts against Senator Shaheen and ten other Democrats urging their constituents to call and ask why they supported Obama’s lie.
CNN: Senate Democrats supported rule that led to insurance cancellations.
Senate Democrats voted unanimously three years ago to support the Obamacare rule that is largely responsible for some of the health insurance cancellation letters that are going out. In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.
RNC Launches Robocalls, Facebook Posts On ObamaCare Lie
WASHINGTON – Today the Republican National Committee (RNC) is launching robocalls and targeted Facebook posts urging Americans to call their representatives and ask why they supported President Obama’s lie that people could keep their healthcare plans under ObamaCare.
The RNC is targeting eleven Democrats who support ObamaCare, including nine U.S. Senators who voted in 2010 to make it more difficult for Americans to keep their insurance. The effort includes Senators Mark Warner (VA), Mark Begich (AK), Dick Durbin (IL), Kay Hagan (NC), Mary Landrieu (LA), Jeff Merkley (OR), Mark Pryor (AR), Jeanne Shaheen (NH), and Mark Udall (CO), as well as Representatives Bruce Braley (IA) and Gary Peters (MI).
“We now know the President’s repeated promise that Americans could keep their insurance plans if they liked them was a blatant lie,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “In 2010 President Obama and the Democrats were warned about this very issue and deliberately chose to make it more difficult for Americans to keep their insurance. Americans should call their representatives and ask why they supported the ObamaCare lie.”
