“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.”…Barack Obama
“millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.”…NBC News October 29, 2013

My mom always said two wrongs don’t make a right.
Two lies certainly don’t.
From Rush Limbaugh November 14, 2013.
“The Dictator, Joined in Progress”
“RUSH: The president’s addressing the nation, ladies and gentlemen, on how he’s gonna play dictator again and fix his health care problem. It was supposed to start exactly a half hour ago. He just started three minutes ago, opening up on the Philippines. He finished his remarks on the Philippines right as this program began. So we’re gonna JIP it. Here’s the president playing dictator.”
“OBAMA: Making sure the website is working the way it’s supposed to. It’s gotten a lot better over the last few weeks than it was on the first day, but we’re working 24/7 to get it working for the vast majority of Americans.
RUSH: Can I ask a question here? Why would anybody believe what he says after the big lie about being able to keep — (crosstalk)
OBAMA: — concerns Americans who receive letters from their insurers that they may be losing the plans they bought in the old individual market —
OBAMA: — often because they no longer meet the law’s requirements to cover basic benefits like prescription drugs or doctors visits. Now, as I indicated earlier, I completely get how upsetting this can be for a lot of Americans, particularly after assurances they heard from me that, if they had a plan that they liked, they could keep it. And to those Americans, I hear you loud and clear. I said that I would do everything we can to fix this problem, and today I’m offering an idea that will help do it. Already people who have plan that predate the Affordable Care Act can keep those plans if they haven’t changed. That was already in the law. That’s what’s called a “grandfather clause.” It was included in the law.
RUSH: Still continuing the lie, folks. (crosstalk)”
“OBAMA: Now, this fix won’t solve every problem for every person, but it’s gonna help a lot of people. Doing more will require more work with Congress. And I’ve said from the beginning I’m willing to work with Democrats and Republicans to fix problems as they arise.
RUSH: He’s lying again.”
“He’s doing two things: He’s telling the insurance companies, as a dictator would, what they can and can’t do or what they must or must not do, or what they have to and don’t have to do. He is suggesting, for purely political purposes, that if you have your plan now and you like it, you can keep it for one more year so that you don’t get any angrier at Democrats than you are now and vote against them next November.”
From US Senator Richard Burr of NC.
“Burr: President Obama’s “Fix” Will Not Work
|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEThursday, November 14, 2013||CONTACT:||Robert Reid (202) 228-1616|
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s announced proposal to grandfathered insurance plans:
“President Obama’s attempt at political damage control today did absolutely nothing to provide relief for the damage already inflicted on individuals who already had health care coverage and the entire health care industry as a result of the Affordable Care Act. If anything, the president only dug himself further into a hole by putting forth an unworkable proposal that will amount to nothing more than another broken promise.
Following the president’s announcement, both state insurance commissioners and insurers themselves rightfully expressed concerns about the feasibility of implementing the proposed change, the uncertainty it would create, and its effectiveness at addressing the underlying problems that are causing cancellation notices to be sent and premiums to skyrocket. Even many Democrats in Congress have come forward saying the president’s about-face is not adequate to reverse the train wreck that is Obamacare.
Instead of trying to shift blame and transfer ownership of this disastrous law, President Obama should accept reality and work with Congress to replace this law with commonsense, patient-centered reforms.”
