Sen. Hagan, like other Democrats, on the health care hot seat
Sacramento Bee

Republicans working to eject Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., from her Senate seat say she was dishonest when she said that people could keep their health care plans.

On Wednesday, Hagan responded by saying that it was the insurance companies who weren’t being upfront.

“It wasn’t clear – and it’s very disappointing – that for the last three years insurance companies continued to sell plans that didn’t meet the basic standards of the law and didn’t tell consumers that those plans would be canceled,” Hagan spokeswoman Sadie Weiner said in a statement.
