TRANSCRIPT:

“Throughout America there is a real challenge of trust in government.  And now we find out that the Administration knew for three years that millions of Americans would lose their health care; they could not keep it if they liked it.  The President stood before us at the Rose Garden and said that it was just problems with the website.  But no, the problems go well beyond problems with the flawed website.  Every state throughout the country is beginning to receive letters you just saw the Leader show.  And just in California one insurer, Kaiser Permanente, sent out 160,000 [health insurance] termination letters.  That is almost half of their entire individual business.  Almost half just got terminated. The Administration knew this would happen for three years.  It is much more than a flawed website.  This needs to be delayed before it moves any further and before more people lose their health care.”
