Reality begs to differ.
Via CNS News:
Pres. Obama said today that buying Obamacare health insurance through the administration’s www.healthcare.gov website is the same as buying something on Kayak.com or Amazon.com.
In a speech defending Obamacare, the issue driving the government shutdown/budget battle, Obama declared:
“[S]tarting today, you and your friends and your family and your coworkers can get covered, too. Just visit healthcare.gov, and there you can compare insurance plans, side by side, the same way you’d shop for a plane ticket on Kayak or a TV on Amazon.
“You enter some basic information, you’ll be presented with a list of quality, affordable plans that are available in your area, with clear descriptions of what each plan covers, and what it will cost. You’ll find more choices, more competition, and in many cases, lower prices — most uninsured Americans will find that they can get covered for $100 or less.”
