New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is still toeing the abandoned White House line regarding the lousy individual policies that have been terminated in the millions to comply with Obamacare. But she will not plead ignorance. Hey, she’s a Dartmouth alum. Quizzed whether she was misled on the issue by Obama, Gillibrand asserted:
He should’ve just been more specific. Because the point is, if you’re being offered a terrible health care plan, that the minute you get sick you’re going to have to go into bankruptcy, those plans should never be offered.
Quizzed on the issue a second time, Gillibrand blundered into the truth:
He should’ve just been specific. No, we all knew. The whole point of the plan is to cover things people need, like preventive care, birth control, pregnancy. How many women, the minute they get pregnant, might risk their coverage. How many women paid more because of their gender, because they might get pregnant. Those are the reforms.
After such knowledge, what forgiveness?
