“I think the president was grossly misleading to the American public,” Representative Kurt Schrader (D., Ore.) said of President Obama’s claim that Americans could keep their preferred health-care plans. He didn’t mince his words when it came to Jay Carney either, accusing the White House press secretary of “double talk” on the issue.
“I think the president saying you could stay with it and not being honest that a lot of these policies were going to get canceled was grossly misleading to the American public and is causing added stress and added strife as we go through a really difficult time with health care,” he said on a local public-affairs program.
While Schrader said some people on the individual market do change their plans from year to year, “a lot of Oregonians have stayed with the same policy for a number of years and are shocked that their policy got canceled.”
