Carney Takes The Long Route To Admitting Obama’s ‘You Can Keep Your Plan’ Promise Isn’t True

0 Shares

From today’s White House press briefing: Fox News’ Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Jay Carney if he still maintained that the President’s infamous promise – that Americans who liked their health plans could keep them under Obamacare – is still true today.

Here’s Carney’s long admission:

Carney: “Well, well, let’s – let’s just be clear. What – what the President said, and everybody said all along is that – there are gonna be changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act that create minimum standards of coverage. Minimum services that every insurance plan has to provide…so that an individual shopping for insurance, ah, when he or she purchases that insurance, knows that maternity care is covered; preventive services are covered; that mental health services are covered; that the insurance policy you buy doesn’t have an annual limit, or a lifetime limit; that there re out-of-pocket expenses capped at a maximum level both annually and for a lifetime, so – it’s true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don’t meet those minimum standards and therefore, ah, do not qualify for the Affordable Care Act; there are some that can be grandfathered if people wanna keep insurance that’s substandard.”

    He could have been much more concise with a simple “No.”.

  • TexRancher

    When did you finally learn this, Carney? We knew it the minute Kenya Boy opened his mouth. What took you so long?

    • Harold Olsen

      Like many liberals/progressives, he lacks the ability of independent thought. He can only repeat what he is told to say. Obviously, he can’t even do that very well. That’s something he has in common with Obama. Even reading his teleprompter, Obama mispronounces words a three-year old could pronounce

    Obama and Carney all can go to he// ..I do not like or want any part of Obama care

  • hippybiker

    The jig is up. The Jig lied. So what else is new. How can you tell when O-Bozo is lying? His D**k sucker is open.

  • Patrick John Harnish

    Obama Lies like a rug! so does the buffoon “Carney”

  • Mole Johnson

    Wait a minute … is he saying Barak lied to us? (rolls eyes)

    • Motov

      Obozo lies? That must explain why Febreze came out with their industrial strength formula, used in a specially modified pressure washer for whenever Obozo gives a speech.

  • steve

    liar liar pants on fire.

  • Al Chemist

    There has never been a spokesperson who has had to tell bigger lies and lie more for their boss than Jay Carney. That takes a special type of person: one with zero self-respect.

    • Warrior

      Oh, I believe “gibbs” was every bit as adept as this clown.

  • steve

    something I heard this weekend that was an eye opener. Valerie jared lives in the white house 24/7 . has her own suite and eats diner with the golden boy and his family every night. they make no decisions without her knowledge. so the question is; who wears the pants in the family?

    • Warrior

      Actually, axelweed and rahmfather still hold very high positions of decision makers in this collection of “progressive misfits”.

  • Warrior

    The heat is causing the oblama pot to start boiling. Turns out now, mr. gumby actually knows “nothing” about “anything” taking place in the gubmint. Hmmm, I sense a “false flag” event coming soon. VERY SOON!

  • Don Berry

    Funny…our health plan is staying exactly the same next year. So somebody’s lying…

    • Barakolips

      ??????????????…………..?

    • CWA

      Yes, Don, you are lying again.

      • Don Berry

        Yeah you wish I was lying. You wish that 10% of the bs that comes from your side of the fence was true.

  • James Reitz

    Carney is Obama’s mouthpiece when Obama screws up but the fact is Obama and Carney have no clue. I know Obama sees polls and when 70% of the population refused to accept his signature healthcare law he should of took note. But his pigheadedness and stupidity make him the idiot of the year.

  • rbrooks

    my health care is not changing. my premiums are staying the same.

    • MECOLE

      Not all health plans will change right away. You are one of the lucky ones.

      • rbrooks

        not all health plans will change. some will change and the premiums will be less. some will change and the premiums be higher.

        • Motov

          “…..premiums will be less**”

          **(than Obozo’s vacation trips on Air Force 1)

          You forgot the asterisks,….

        • Gary

          The problem is, no one can escape math. Forcing insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions and 40 million unisured and expecting costs overall to go down is just fantasy. Whether you are liberal or conservative, you can’t escape the basic arithmetic of the problem. Healthy people with previous low-cost insurance will see there costs go up. You need to listen to Dave Ramsey’s simple explanation from his radio show last week on the subject.

    • Barakolips

      ?????????????………………

      • Vis Fac

        Yeah I second that one rbrooks is trying to compete with Carney !!!!!!!!!

        To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

        You don’t have to be a Marine to make a difference the only requirement is being truly patriotic and the willingness to back it up!!!

        • rbrooks

          well, your method is certainly make a real difference. lol.

          • Vis Fac

            And here you go again with your sophomoric “LOL”

            Your level of sophistication is only surpassed by the unimpressive level of diction you continue to display.

            You STILL haven’t answered any on my questions I directed to you two weeks ago therefore what ever you think you have to say holds no credibility

            To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

      The company I work for is keeping their healthcare coverage. Thanks to Obamacare, though, they are making it more difficult to sign up for it. The rates are going up, and, even if you had already been signed up for it, if you do not meet certain requirements, you can’t sign up or renew. Microsoft has a story on their homepage that Patty Davis, Reagans daughter, who is an Obama supporter and liberal activist is PO’d at Obama because she is now losing her healthcare plan because of Obmacare. I guess she’s posted a number of Tweets on Twitter to him regarding it. He’s even PO’ing his base.

      • rbrooks

        what is your point. the majority of americans were against mandated insurance. now the majority support that same mandated insurance.

        nothing has changed.

        • Gary

          Are you high? You make no sense.

  • Bill

    They have been lying about obamacare all along and they continue to lie
    They should not be trusted

    • Diane Ringen

      Not one thing he says can be trusted.

  • Hank

    Liar, liar, pants on fire. Obama is a lowlife arrogant Muslim!

  • Edd USN Ret.

    How can you tell when a Democrap is lying to you? Easy, His lips are moving trying to say words, phrases or even illiterate sounds. If he’s a Liberral, Muslim loving JA it is even easier cause he can not look you in the eye when conversing with anyone, even another BH LIberal.

  • gunnerv1

    Want to be able to tell when Mr. Carney is lying? If his lips are moving, he’s lying!

    • Harold Olsen

      That’s true of any liberal/progressive. And I’m not just talking about politicians. I know a lot of Obama supporters who claim that he has kept every promise he has ever made and has never lied about anything. They go so far as to claim Obama’s presidency is the most honest in the history of this country.

      • gunnerv1

        Yeah, I know all about Liberals, I married into a Family of them, the running joke is, ‘what’s the point of voting, we just cancel each other out’. BUT, she now see’s the error of her way and is really pissed about Obama and all of his crap. Its only taken me 15 years to get her out of the ‘Dark Side’. ‘Fair Winds and Smooth Sailing’ Thanks my friend

        • rbrooks

          so it took you 15 years to bring her down to your level.

          • gunnerv1

            No, it took me fifteen years to get her to open her eyes and realize that her Liberal Party had been ‘Spoon Feeding’ her Bullshi*. She no longer belongs in the ‘Teachers Union’ (local) and this is a ‘Right to Work’ State.

      • Motov

        What kind of drugs are they on? How come we aren’t allowed ?

  • Robert Brennan

    The pale side of Obama. Obama lies and his puppet spreads the lies.

  • jdn

    Carney can’t help himself , sometimes it ain’t easy being an Obamaton . He will be replaced if he ever goes into meltdown from the constant load of BS he has to spew .

    • Barakolips

      Lol!

  • Barakolips

    After he got through sputtering, he basically said Obama was lying!

    • Motov

      His hair hides the lobotomy scars well,……

  • CWA

    “6 out of 10 will pay less than $100 a month…” Why in the HELL didn’t someone in the room call that SOB a LIAR?

  • Libertarian58

    I’ve never heard anything but lies come from this fools mouth.

  • Liz

    If anyone believes one word uttered by O’Bama, Carney or any representative from this Administration I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them!!!!!!

  • Harold Olsen

    Of course Obama lied. His lips were moving, weren’t they?

    • Motov

      With the fresh scent of BS.

  • Jeff Noncent

    well I was thinking that the president care fail because this nation was not found by a communist law, and it was a miracles that the president care fail it proof that this nation is still a christian nation, now we the people need to be praying that the president will be impeached, and be gone from the white house

    • rbrooks

      a good old tent revival. that will do it.

  • Diane Ringen

    Hey, even Oprah doesn’t trust him.
