Kay Hagan Takes Insurance Industry $$$$ And Then Blames Them For Her ObamaCare Lie

Kay Hagan evidently doesn’t think she should be blamed for saying if you like your health insurance, you can keep it at least 22 times. Instead, Hagan is trying to shift the blame for a problem that she and her Democrat colleagues caused. Take a look at what her spokeswoman told The News & Observer:

“It wasn’t clear – and it’s very disappointing – that for the last three years insurance companies continued to sell plans that didn’t meet the basic standards of the law and didn’t tell consumers that those plans would be canceled,” Hagan spokeswoman Sadie Weiner said in a statement.

The first-term Democrat has declined to respond to questions about when she knew that policies would be canceled. She was a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, one of two Senate committees that drafted versions of the health care law in 2009.

So the insurance companies should be blamed for her lie? Hmm, well that hasn’t stopped Hagan from taking $326,348 in contributions to her campaign committee and leadership PAC from the insurance industry over the course of her U.S. Senate career.
