The White House Monday finally acknowledged that President Obama was incorrect when he asserted – repeatedly – that anyone who likes their health insurance can keep it. With reports rolling in of people getting notes from insurers terminating their plans, the evidence was at last undeniable.
But you wouldn’t know that from visiting the White House website, where the section titled “About the New Law” still boasts Obama’s erroneous -some would say mendacious – claim that if you like your plan, your coverage won’t be affected.
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, putting in place comprehensive reforms that improve access to affordable health coverage for everyone and protect consumers from abusive insurance company practices.
For those Americans who already have health insurance, the only changes you will see under the law are new benefits, better protections from insurance company abuses, and more value for every dollar you spend on health care. If you like your plan you can keep it and you don’t have to change a thing due to the health care law.
The White House webmaster has apparently not caught up with the administration’s grudging acknowledgement of the truth. Another Obama administration website “glitch” in need of fixing.
