Obama Changes “If You Like Your Plan…” Messaging

I wonder how this would have played prior to the 2012 elections? (Real Clear Politics has the video)

(Fox News) The president told about 200 of his campaign supporters and health care activists Monday that the administration had promised Americans they could keep their current coverage — as long as their plans hadn’t changed since ObamaCare was signed into law.

“If you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law’s passed,” Obama said. “So we wrote into the Affordable Care Act you are grandfathered in on that plan. But if the insurance company changes it, then what we’re saying is they have got to change it to a higher standard. They’ve got to make it better.”

Really? That’s “what we said”? Let’s go to the video tape

Did anyone hear any qualifiers? I did hear “If you like your plan and doctor, you won’t have to do a thing. You can keep your plan.” People aren’t receiving change notifications, they are receiving pure cancellation notices because the insurance companies are required to make big changes to the plans because of Obama’s POS signature legislation. He and his people…OK…mostly his people because he’s too lazy to be involved in any actual work…intentionally crafted rules which blew out the grandfathering of plans. They new back in 2010 this would happen.

The Lonely Conservative calls Obama a pathological liar.

Scared Monkeys notes that Obama is doubling down on his lies.

Newsbusters notes how Obama told Senator Kyle in 2010 that you could keep your not so good Acme plan.
