Hank: Obama lied. You can’t keep your plan if you like it.
Talking point: The president broke his promise and now millions have lost their insurance plans. Cite a friend or somebody you know who got a cancellation notice. If you don’t know anybody, pretend you do or use Edie Sundby.
Killer stat: More than 4.2 million of those people have received notices that their plans have been canceled or they will need to pay substantially higher premiums. That’s not change you can believe in. And it’s a lie. And be ready with an unimpeachable source for this number: The Associated Press.
Emily’s Rebuttal: This is just another example of corporate greed.
Those plans were terrible anyway — high deductibles, no hospital coverage, dropped you if you got sick, etc. It wasn’t insurance if you actually needed it. Cite an example from a family member here who’s gotten screwed by an insurer. Shouldn’t be hard to find.
