RUSH: Grab sound bite number 12 real quick. This is New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and she was on Sunday’s This Week on ABC with Martha Raddatz, and here she admits that they all knew that people were gonna lose their coverage because Obamacare mandates that everybody buy everybody who wants it birth control pills. She admits it. Listen.
GILLIBRAND: (shouting) No, we all knew! The whole point of the plan is to cover things people need, like preventive care, birth control, pregnancy. How many women, the minute they get pregnant, might risk their coverage? How many women pay more because of their gender because they might get pregnant?
RUSH: So we all have to pay for that, and that put everybody’s policy in conflict with Obamacare, and that’s why your plan’s getting canceled, because you have to pay for people like Kirsten Gillibrand’s birth control pills and whoever else wants them. But the point is she says, “Oh, we all knew. We all knew these plans were gonna be canceled, and Obama knew it, too.” But the tip of the iceberg starts next year when employer-provided plans get canceled — and now we’re not talking about 8%, we’re talking 150 plus million people.
RUSH: Yeah, good old Kirsten Gillibrand. She said that Obama should have been “more specific.” How much more specific could he have been? He said, “You will not lose your doctor if you like your doctor. You won’t lose your plan if you like your plan.” I mean, it’s outright fraud. It’s a huge, huge lie, and all these Democrats are now coming along and basically confirming that they knew, and everybody else knew that what Obama was saying was not true.
