"If you like your plan you can keep it." Not.
President did promise this several times when rolling out Obamacare and it is simply not true. Regressives are right about that. For example see this article. He goes into the details of why some can no longer keep the plan they have and presumably like because per Obamacare the plans have changed and no longer meet the requirements of the program. Granted in some if not all cases the Obamacare plan that replaces what one had is better overall. And now the administration is trying to redefine what they meant by the original phrase in these terms. But the fact remains that if that's what they meant in the first place they should have stated in different terms up front, since the meaning of "if you like your plan you can keep it" is plain enough and just not true. They're pulling a Clinton: "It depends on what the meaning of 'is' is."
