A group of top health insurance executives on Capitol Hill Wednesday stayed stock-still when asked whether they expected families they insure to experience a lowering of their premiums under Obamacare.
Rep. Morgan Griffith (R., Va.) extended the question, and awkward silence ensued:
REP. MORGAN GRIFFITH: Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman. Thank you all for being here. Ms. Blackburn asked you earlier for a show of hands; I’m going to do the same. If your company anticipates a reduction for the average family that you ensure of $2,500 or more, would you raise your hand? (Pause.) If your company anticipates a reduction in premium of $2,000 per average family for your subscribers, raise your hand. (Pause.) Same for $1,500. (Pause.) All right. I appreciate that.
Fox News correspondent Jim Angle reported on the story Wednesday night on Special Report, and host Bret Baier laughed about it as they closed the segment.
“Not a lot of hands moving on that $2,500 reduction,” Baier said.
“They were frozen in place,” reporter Jim Angle said.
