Obama: Majority can keep plans
Oh now we hear a change of tune!
Check it out:
President Obama on Wednesday downgraded his longstanding promise that people can keep their healthcare policies if they like them and said instead that “the vast majority” could.
While insisting in a speech at Boston’s Faneuil Hall that relatively few would be forced off their plans, he accused his opponents of “grossly misleading” the public.
“For the vast majority of people who have health insurance that works, you can keep it,” Obama said. “For the fewer than 5 percent of Americans who buy insurance on your own, you will be getting a better deal.”
Hundreds of thousands of people have received letters notifying them that their plans will be canceled by the end of the year.
This has created a growing political problem for the White House, which is already being heavily criticized by friends and foes alike for the many failures of the ObamaCare enrollment website, which is still not working a month after its launch.
