Report: Obama administration knew millions wouldn't be able to keep insurance (he lied)
Yahoo! News ^ | 10/28/13 | Mike Krumboltz, Yahoo News

Before the Affordable Care Act became law in 2010, President Obama promised Americans they could keep their healthcare plan if they liked it. But already hundreds of thousands of citizens are receiving notification that their plans are being cancelled because they don't comply with the new law, and, according to NBC News, the Obama administration has known for at least three years the cancellations were coming.

While campaigning for health care reform in 2009, Obama went out of his way to make one thing perfectly clear: if you like your current health care plan, you will be able to keep it.

On June 15, 2009, Obama said this: "We will keep this promise to the American people. If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. Period.”

In 2012, he echoed that sentiment, saying, "“If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”

However, many are finding that not to be the case. More than 300,000 cancellation notices have been sent out in Florida, according to Kaiser Health News, and another 180,000 in California. In New Jersey, the number of cancellations tops 800,000, the Star-Ledger reports.

According to NBC News, approximately 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million Americans who buy their health insurance individually should expect to receive a cancellation letter over the next year "because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law."

So if that’s the case, then Obama lied. Is that a crime? When can the impeachment proceedings commence?

RE :”Obamacare has defenders still?”

Things are moving fast and it is running out of defenders even on Morning Joe.

But keep in mind that first two weeks of Obamacare the shutdown and debt limit stories drama eclipsed it and a few polls even showed Obamacare gaining popularity in that period.

That was because the shutdown gave Dems the line they repeated over and over : Republicans are fighting and shutting down the government to KEEP Americans from getting health care.(Ironically the shutdown didnt affect Obamacare)

Now with the shutdown over the story has flipped 180 degrees.
