What Changed, Kyrsten?

| November 16 2013

Kyrsten Sinema just released a statement on her vote yesterday and said this…

“We promised that individuals who like their plans would be able to keep them and this bill keeps that promise.”

That’s different than what she said just the day before …

“Arizonans were told that if they like their plans, they would be able to keep them.”

It seems like she has finally taken responsibility for spreading this falsehood. She can try to subtly rewrite history and hope you don’t notice, but she sold Arizonans a bill of goods and it’s time she took responsibility.

NRCC COMMENT: “Now that Kyrsten Sinema has finally admitted that she spread the same lie that President Obama did, maybe she’ll join him in apologizing to all those she deceived.”

I may be off in thinking this through ... I'm not knowledgeable in the ways of civil courts and litigation, damages, injured, affected victims, etc., but it seems to me that if a consumer is knowingly deceived by a facilitator (the salesperson or agent) through promotions, statements and claims expressed or implied in written form or made verbally,  especially as regards forms of coercion and manipulation to buy a product of excessive cost with features not relevant to the prospective consumer, and judged to have been deceitful in their purpose and intent in the sale of the product that harms or has affected the consumer adversely prior to acceptance or sale of the product, I would think that the seller and/or "middleman", provider, facilitator, wholesaler, or navigator would be held liable for restitution and punitive damages.

How far off am I?

@rofomoreno You are right that to take action, the plaintiff must have standing. Thinking of suing Sinema?
