As asked during the Watergate days of Richard Nixon--"what did they know and when did they know it"? Surely President Obama and his administration are being blasted for this disaster caused by nsurance companies terminating policies that have been in force for months or for many, for a few years. But, how far and to how many directions should the fingers point?
Also, politically, how will the recent and growing controversy play out in the fall of 2014, when Louisiana voters go to cast ballots for the next US Senator? With the healthcare.gov site, for now, a technological and public-relations mess, with sticker-shock abound, with policy-terminations multiplying--how badly will this hurt the current US Senator Democrat Mary Landrieu? Landrieu, the only Democratic statewide official is being challenged by two republicans, Congressman Bill Cassidy and Rob Maness, a Tea Party favorite.
Perhaps even more troubling for many across the nation is whether President Obama is now to be believed for his over-thirty public statements that--if families like their doctors and their insurance policies, they can keep them under the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare. Because of those statements, many throughout the nation are claiming Obama lied. So, did he?
These are some of the issues Jeff Crouere and and Bayoubuzz Publisher discussed Tuesday morning on Crouere’s ringsidepolitics radio talk show.
