Sen. Hagan runs from Obamacare question on canceled plans

February 25, 2014 | Joe Schoffstall - 862 Comments

On Monday, Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) repeatedly refused to answer a simple question on when she knew people wouldn’t be able to keep their current plans under Obamacare.

Sen. Hagan promised on at least 24 separate occasions people in North Carolina would be able to keep their current health care plan — once Obamacare went into effect — if they wished to do so.

However, she dodged the question at her press conference after she made it official she’d be running for re-election.

One reporter asks, “Much has been made about if you like you health care plan you can keep it, but what we’re still not sure about is, when exactly did you learn that wasn’t the case? Because you were on a lot of committees that helped write the bill. Was there a specific time frame — a day, a month, a week — that you can narrow it to when you learned that wasn’t going to be the case?”

Hagan avoids the question. Instead, she talks about a bill she is sponsoring that will allow people to keep their plans.

WATCH:

After the press conference, she was once again pressed in the parking lot. This time, she walked away from the reporter without answering the question.
