The face of Obamacare in Maryland is gubernatorial candidate and current Lt. Governor, Anthony Brown.Brown led the implementation of Obamacare in Maryland. He was the point man.
Last Thursday, WBAL TV reporter Jayne Miller questioned Brown on whether or not he knew the cancellations were coming.
He knew the cancellations were coming but didn’t want to speak for the President. I’m sure that comforts the folks who have to now search for higher cost health insurance now that they can no longer keep the plan they have. That’s the kind of truthiness I want in my next governor!
Let’s just say Brown’s answer was—to borrow his own term—substandard.
Then on WBAL’s Weekend Q&A Brown gave another substandard answer to Lisa Robinson’s question about the cancellations. According to Brown, the letters 73,000 Marylanders received from their health insurance carriers informing them their policies would be cancelled, are not cancellation letters–they are renewal notices.
He says “you can renew your plan today, well into 2014, but in 2014 you won’t be able renew your current plan.”Wait what?
