Megyn Kelly vs. Dem. Rep. Frank Pallone: Obamacare Responsible For Dropped Plans

Megyn Kelly and Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) debate if Obamacare is responsible for canceled health insurance plans.

PALLONE: They tell them where to get insurance. Look the bottom line is, if you are selling a lousy policy at a price that’s too high, nobody is going to buy it.

KELLY: That’s not true.

PALLONE: And so they are canceling these policies because they know people won’t buy them. It’s a competitive marketplace. That’s the problem.

KELLY: But they were buying them.


PALLONE: But they won’t buy them anymore when they have a better alternative.

KELLY: There were 15 million people who bought them and said β€œI like them.”

PALLONE: They’re not going to buy them anymore when they have a better alternative.

KELLY: Thanks to you.

PALLONE: Well, I can’t go out as an insurance company and sell a lousy policy anymore at a high price.

KELLY: People like β€” why do you get to decide what’s lousy? Why can’t the American people say β€˜it’s lousy for you. For me, I like it.’

PALLONE: It’s capitalism. You can go out and buy whatever you want, but the insurance company realizes they can’t sell this lousy insurance policy anymore.

KELLY: They were selling it, sir. You are ignoring my point. They were selling it. Some 15 million Americans thought it was great. You didn’t like it, but they liked it. And then you and the president –

PALLONE: Now there are better alternatives. (transcript via Daily Caller)
