Ellison: Obama Showed ‘Integrity’ By Apologizing to Those Who ‘Misunderstood’ Him on Obamacare (Washington Free Beacon)

Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) did his best to spin President Obama’s debunked promise about Americans keeping their health care plans if they liked them Sunday on This Week, saying Obama showed “integrity” in apologizing to Americans who “misunderstood” him about the Affordable Care Act.

Obama made some version of the promise publicly at least 36 times while campaigning for Obamacare and then after it was passed. With millions of cancellation policies being sent around the country and public support for the law crumbling, Obama apologized last month in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd.

“He owned it,” Ellison said. “He said, look man, if you misunderstood what I was trying to say, I’m sorry about that. I think that shows integrity. He didn’t do anything to self-promote.”
