DC insurance commissioner fired for criticizing Obamacare fix (VIDEO)
Last week, President Barack Obama announced a change to his signature health care law to allow people to keep their health insurance plans that do not meet the Affordable Care Act's new standards.
Critics argue that this "fix" to Obamacare means that fewer people will purchase health insurance through the state or federal exchanges, which could cause prices to go up. One of the critics is Washington, DC Insurance Commissioner William P. White.
However, when White released a statement criticizing the president's fix, he was fired by Mayor Vincent Gray. RT's Sam Sacks shows how the DC government decided against "If you like your health insurance commissioner, you can keep it."
