Republicans Not Impressed by President Obama Apology

Posted: Updated:

Republican foes of President Barack Obama's health care law appear unmoved by his apology to Americans who are losing health insurance plans that he had repeatedly said they could keep.
 
Obama told NBC that he's "sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation" based on assurances he gave.
 
Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell says, "If the president is truly sorry for breaking his promises to the American people, he'll do more than just issue a halfhearted apology on TV."
 
In the interview, Obama promised to find fixes that might allow people to keep their coverage. Officials say Obama was referring to fixes the administration could make on its own.
 
But a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner says the Ohio Republican is "highly skeptical" that Obama could take administrative action to ensure that Americans can keep their health plans. The spokesman says Obama needs to work with Congress on legislation that would let insurance companies continue to offer existing policies.   (AP)
