On her MSNBC show Sunday, Melissa Harris-Perry suggested that Democrats get a little more unapologetic about the consequences of Obamacare, one of which was millions of canceled insurance plans in spite of President Obama’s “you can keep it if you like it” Lie of the Year.
Harris-Perry suggested that Dems should tell the millions who were lied to and forced to shop for different health plans, in many cases being forced to spend more money, to “just deal with it”:

Winning strategy for the Dems?
Don’t expect too many Dems up for election or re-election this year to embrace that suggestion, but many Republicans probably hope they do.
