Bernstein on an accurate statement about losing health coverage

I have a few recent posts on Obamacare's claim that if you like your insurance you can keep it. Bernstein weighs in with what that statement should have been, given the reality:

"If you're one of the 95 percent of insured Americans with health coverage through your job or the government, then your plan won't change. If you're purchasing a plan in the individual market, and that plan remains unchanged, you'll also be able to keep it. But if you're non-group plan changes for the worse, it won't be offered once the new law kicks in."

There are of course good reasons for replacing inadequate coverage, as Obama and Bernstein attest. But this should have been stated up front per something like the above.
