What. A. Worm.
Obama adviser David Axelrod’s tweet is about as desperate and pitiful as it gets, but it’s a question that is easily answered:

And what would the White House and Axelrod’s response have been a few months ago if insurance companies sent their customers letters informing them that Obama’s “if you like your plan you can keep your plan, period” promise was a lie?
.@davidaxelrod You know what I bet they didn't say? "YOU CAN KEEP IT. PERIOD."

If they were “junk policies,” how come so many people are furious because they’re losing them and being forced into more expensive options?
@davidaxelrod Mine was not junk! Worked perfectly for me and my family.

Also, @davidaxelrod, why is it only asswipes like you calling the cancelled plans junk and not the people who had them?

@davidaxelrod Junk policy=one consumers want, Obama doesn't want them to have. Soviet style thinking: whatever not mandatory is forbidden.

Criticism of Axelrod was swift, massive and necessary:
@davidaxelrod You did this. You and your pals. And everyone knows it. Time to admit failure, not point fingers.

@davidaxelrod I wonder how many people you knew would lose their long standing policies before Obama signed ACA

@davidaxelrod great to see you geniuses getting this message out there. On twitter. Months too late after the lunatic narrative has been set

.@davidaxelrod You dumb bastards are trying to blame this on anything but the culprit which is YOU.

@davidaxelrod obamacare = junk policy
— Bizarro Sirota (@bizzaro_sirota) November 8, 2013
@davidaxelrod Your attitude and that of the administration towards those whose plans have been canceled is totally callous.
— David Williams (@saylesclark) November 8, 2013
@davidaxelrod You mean "junk policies" like the ones that didn't make 80 year old men buy maternity coverage?

@davidaxelrod Says the guy who knew the President was lying to the American people about his shitty ACA law and applauded him for it

@davidaxelrod Want to know how many times President Obama told Americans they would have to switch? 0.

The only way David Axelrod will have a positive effect on the number of insured Americans is if he can figure out a way to turn BS into health insurance.
