Senator John Thune (R-S.D.), Member of the Senate Finance Committee, today questioned Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about the disastrous rollout of healthcare.gov and the administration’s broken promise to the American people that they could keep the health care they have and like, period.
“You’ve been misleading the American people and the president has, over and over and over again,” said Thune about the president’s promise that if you like the health care plan you have, you can keep it. “It wasn’t like there were asterisks or footnotes. … this is a dishonest mistake.”Video of Thune’s statement and questions at today’s committee hearing can be viewed here and downloaded for use here.
