MSNBC’s Todd: Obama Relied on Insurance Companies to Fulfill His Promises

‘They put themselves in the hands of the insurance companies’

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd: Obama Made Promises He ‘Hoped Insurance Companies Would Keep’ (Mediaite)

MSNBC chief political analyst Chuck Todd told Morning Joe Tuesday morning that President Barack Obama’s claim that people would be able to keep their health insurance under the Affordable Care Act was a poor promise to have made from the start, as it relied on insurance companies’ compliance, and was made even worse by the fact that the administration knew as early as 2010 that it would not be the case.

“They put themselves in the hands of the insurance companies,” Todd said. “They were making promises that they were hoping the insurance companies were going to keep!”
