FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Saturday, March 1, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. - The struggling re-election campaign of Sen. Kay Hagan is now offering its third different answer to journalists asking the same question: when did Sen. Hagan know that her Obamacare promise was false?
Answer #1: No answer.
For months, Sen. Hagan and her campaign refused to even answer the question or offer a response, despite her repeating the “if you like your health plan you can keep it” promise more than 20 times. To date, almost 500,000 North Carolinians have received cancellation notices as a result of Obamacare.
Answer #2: She Knew When Insurance Companies Started Offering “Disingenuous” Plans
Last fall, Hagan spokeswoman Sadie Wiener told the Greensboro News & Record that Sen. Hagan knew people would be getting cancellation letters when she found out that insurance companies were offering what she called “disingenuous” plans that would not be permitted under the Affordable Care Act.
Answer #3: She Knew When People Started Getting Cancellation Notices Last Fall
On Friday evening, the Hagan campaign told WTVD in Raleigh that she knew last fall that her Obamacare promise was false, as their office began receiving reports of citizens receiving cancellation notices.
“The Hagan campaign continues to mislead the media and the citizens of North Carolina, and it’s time for them to give a straight answer to a very simple question,” said Tillis spokesman Jordan Shaw. “Did she know her promise was false when plans were being offered, or did she know when plans were being cancelled? North Carolinians deserve the truth.”
