hoyer1On Tuesday, House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer admitted to reporters they knew many Americans would lose their health insurance coverage despite the promises made by President Obama, the National Review Online reported.

“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” he told a reporter from the National Review.

Hoyer also spun Obama’s lies to the American public.

“I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with – ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do,’” he said.

The NRO added:

Hoyer noted that people losing access to their current plans are mostly in the individual market, which is a small segment of the overall market. He also argued that requiring those plans to follow new mandates and regulations was important for ensuring those plans included “adequate coverage so the public would not have to be on the hook for serious illnesses or other illnesses.”

So far, approximately 1.5 million Americans have lost their coverage due to Obamacare, and millions more stand to lose their current coverage.

Meanwhile, Howard Portnoy says, the White House website continues to spread the lie that “If you like your plan you can keep it and you don’t have to change a thing due to the health care law.”
