Skip to comments.WhiteHouse.Gov Article from 2009: “If you Like Your Insurance Plan you will be Able to Keep” It

In a beyond-hypocritical and beyond-ironic article from 2009 entitled Facts Are Stubborn Things, WhiteHouse.gov declared that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them. Of course, we all know now that these stubborn facts were bald-faced lies since the very beginning.
The article, which is still up on the site at the moment, goes into a tirade against "the internet" for spreading misinformation to voters. The piece, written by White House Director of New Media Macon Phillips, blares that these internet people are lying when they have stated that people might lose their insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
Facts Are Stubborn Things begins by snarling, Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, facts are stubborn things. Republicans and chain e-mailers, Phillips writes, are trying to make it look like the President intends to eliminate private coverage, when the reality couldnt be further from the truth.
Phillips then confidently declares: For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them. Well, that sentence has been noted on the record. And the President, sir, is a liar.

I think, even given the little we knew about it in 2009 (and of course, given “O’s” abysmal track record on wholesale and unprincipled mendacity where his agenda was concerned...) you HAD to know that you couldn’t keep your plan!
If you like your plan you can keep it and you dont have to change a thing due to the health care law.
