Rep. Cartwright: People Losing Insurance Under ObamaCare ‘A Good Thing’

‘I think you’re dealing in large part in semantics there’

Cartwright: People Losing Their Insurance Under Obamacare ‘A Good Thing’ (Washington Free Beacon)

Rep. Matt Cartwright (D., Penn.) called the possibility of more Americans losing their insurance policies under Obamacare “a good thing” in an interview on MSNBC Live Friday.

A member of the “strike team” sent by the White House to promote the law, Cartwright continued the talking point that those losing their insurance would ultimately benefit from that happening.

“They have immense deductibles,” he said. “They have annual and lifetime caps. There’s so many people out there with what I call phony insurance policies, and the fact that they’re going to lose those policies, sooner or later, I think is a good thing. Because what we’re up to here is we are strengthening the health care system in this country.”
