With millions of Americans preparing to lose their health insurance to be forced into a government-run exchange, a Democrat pollster has called insurance companies "a fantastic enemy."
“For the life of me, I do not understand why we as Democrats are not aggressively blaming that on the insurance companies,” Celinda Lake said on Monday during a media breakfast marking the release of the George Washington University Battleground Poll alongside Republican pollster Ed Goeas.
“We ought to say, The insurance companies are absolutely undermining this,’ and they don’t want to have policies that meet the minimum requirements and we’re not going to stand for it,” she continued. “It’s beyond me why Democrats don’t go after insurance companies for engaging in these practices. We’ve always said we’ll see what works and we’ll fix what doesn’t. Well, this is something we should fix.”
Insurance companies deserve their fair share of the blame for ObamaCare. They went along with the scheme in the hopes the government would pad their profits. But now, one can hope, they are begining to understand, they made a deal with the devil.
