VA Dem Criticizes “Anecdotal Evidence” Of Higher Premiums

Virginia Democrat John Foust has fallen back on his oft criticized communication skills, this time putting foot in mouth as he claimed that premium increases under ObamaCare are just “anecdotal evidence.” It will take a long time to tell the few hundred thousand anecdotes of Virginians who will see significant premium increases next year.

FOUST: “Well the only thing I would say to that is, uh, you know, is, uh, it is a concern to costs, we acknowledge that. But you can point, uh, to anecdotal evidence of higher costs for some people, but what we don’t hear coming from the Republicans and the people who want to kill ObamaCare is all the stories we hear when we go around about people who are getting healthcare for the first time in their lives because of ObamaCare.”
