Millions of health insurance plans have been cancelled after ObamaCare went into effect, and President Obama backed away Monday from his previous oft-repeated statement that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”
But he may want to glance at his own website, WhiteHouse.gov, which still states: “For Americans with insurance coverage who like what they have, they can keep it. Nothing in this act or anywhere in the bill forces anyone to change the insurance they have, period.”
That appears in a section of the WhiteHouse.gov website labeled “health reform details.” The exact same language also appears in the Department of Health and Human Services’ online description of the law.
But that web description is very different from what Obama said Monday to top backers of Organizing for Action, his permanent campaign arm.
