Oh Well: Dem Senator Says Son Lost His Health Insurance Due to ObamaCare

Posted by on Nov 04, 2013 at 8:15 pm

Excuse me while I search for some sympathy. OK, can’t find any.

Democratic officials said top administration aides got a close-up view of the cancellation controversy last week, when Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said at a closed-door meeting of the party’s rank and file that his son had received notice his coverage was being terminated.

In response, these officials said White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough referred to a speech Obama had made earlier in the week saying some of those losing coverage would qualify under Medicaid, some would receive federal subsidies for individual coverage, and others would have options in the so-called exchanges the law set up to allow individuals to shop for insurance. Donnelly’s office declined several requests for comment. The officials who described the incident did so on condition of anonymity, saying they were not authorized to discuss a private meeting.

Perhaps Donnelly’s feeling betrayed, and perhaps a sense of shame for the D after his name. Too damn bad. Your party owns this.

    Coming from the state he represents I would love to tell him too bad! But it does me no good since we will likely be in the same boat when the employer mandate goes into effect next year.

    Donnelly isn’t looking for sympathy. He’s preparing another short-list of exemptions for congressional family members.
