Flashback to last November: Pelosi vows Dems will “stand tall” on Obamacare in midterm elections.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) forcefully defended the Affordable Care Act on Sunday and insisted Democrats will stand by the health care law in the 2014 midterm elections.
Pelosi was asked about the growing frustration among Democrats over the botched rollout of the Obamacare website. Healthcare.gov is still not fully functional, creating tremendous difficulties for consumers shopping for plans through the new health care exchanges. Millions of Americans have also received cancellation notices because their insurance plans didn’t meet the Affordable Care Act’s standards for benefits and financial protections, despite prior assurances from President Barack Obama and other Democrats that people who liked their plans could keep them.
“I don’t think you can tell what will happen next year, but I will tell you this: Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act,” Pelosi said. “We have great candidates who are running who are concerned about our economy and are concerned that government was shut down because of a whim on the part of the Republicans, costing us $25 billion to our economy and 0.6 percent of our GDP growth.”
