CNN: Obama to say canceled plans can be kept for a year

President Obama announced Thursday that we can make a plan and can keep existing health insurance policies for a year and companies and consumers can use this for health care law.

According to CNN Reports Insurance companies must also apprise consumers of what those policies inadequacy, and as a result they have best choice under the Obamacare law said on this report.

The president is answering to criticism from lawmakers and Americans who have received cancelation notices since the law came on line last month.

Administration officials have said policies have been canceled because they do not follow with new demands appointed by Obamacare.

The White House said Obama will make a statement on the low-priced Care Act at 11:35 a.m.

Obama and Obamacare have come under sharp attack from lawmakers and people who have lost their insurance since the new law came on line last month.

A misfunctioning health care website has also drawn heavy criticism.

Obama’s announcement comes a day after the administration announced that only 26,794 people have been able to enter in Obamacare because of the balky website.

President Obama isn’t just facing lower approval ratings — people are starting to question his honesty and trustworthiness.A Quinnipiac Poll this week said that “for the first time” a majority of Americans — 52% to 44% — say that Obama is not honest and trustworthy.

“His previous lowest marks on honesty were May 30, when 49% of voters said he was honest and 47% said he wasn’t,” Quinnipiac reported.If people don’t trust Obama, it’s going to be very hard for him to upgrade his approval rating — now down to 39%, according to that same poll.

It also makes it harder for Obama to get anything through Congress, whether it’s an immigration bill or changes to the health care law.And the health care law appears to be the root of Obama’s current problem.

His ratings have fallen since the beginning of October and a rollout of the health care law that has featured an infamously malfunctioning web site.Voters are also on Obama for his long-ago pledge that people who like their existing insurance policies could keep them. Many Americans have received cancellation notices, though administration officials said that many of the affected policies do not meet new federal quality standards.

White House officials, noting that Congress has an even lower approval rating, said voters are upset with all of Washington.

“There is no question that the disfunction in Washington that the American people have seen is taking its toll on everyone,” said Obama spokesman Jay Carney.

Carney said the president is working to fix problems with the health care law, and other challenges facing Americans.

“We need to focus here on getting the work done that the American people sent us to do,” he said. “And that means working together to fix problems when they arise, not to try to score political points, and it means taking ownership and responsibility for problems that happen on your watch” Said Carney.
