Obama Administration twists Obama's health insurance promise
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
The Obama Administration is twisting its original promise that if you like your health plan you can keep it.
The Department of Health and Human Services just sent out this tweet:

Notice the slight change from what President Obama originally promised:
If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.
Most plans that existed before Obamacare will be forced under Obamacare's new rules. Many plans have been forced out of business. Deductibles for Health Savings Accounts have been limited. Businesses are considering dropping health plans or limiting employees hours to keep from having to purchase health insurance.
So, no longer are Obama and his Health Secretary promising that you can keep your health plan. We know that's not true. But they're using very similar terminology to make it seem like they never lied to the American people.
