Krauthammer’s Take: Cancellation of Health Plans ‘Almost a Parody’ of Liberalism

by Sterling Beard

The cancellation of health-insurance policies is the first blow to Obamacare after the launch of the glitch-ridden federal health exchange, Charles Krauthammer said Monday night.

Speaking during a panel appearance on Special Report, Krauthammer criticized the minimum coverage requirements for plans, deriding those rules for causing the cancellations. “You have a plan, you like the plan, you want the plan, but [the government calls] it substandard because some expert in Washington had written a regulation which it doesn’t meet or fit, and we’re going to cancel it on you,” he said.

“I mean, it’s almost a parody of the definition of a liberal,” Krauthammer said, “which is: somebody who doesn’t care what you do as long as it’s mandatory.”
