The head of the Obamacare exchange is saying that at the end of the year, nearly a million Californians will lose their private health insurance:

Covered California executive director Peter Lee told the Chronicle editorial board that he expects 800,000 to 900,000 people to lose their non-grandfathered private insurance policies on Dec. 31, thanks to the Affordable Care Act. (This figure — which is higher than past numbers reported – does not include small business coverage.) “The individual market is changing dramatically,” Lee said.

As for Obama’s “if you like your plan you can keep it” promise, check out this Jay Carney-esque attempt to avoid saying it was a lie:

What about President Obama’s promise that if people liked their plan, they could keep it? “I think it was not well stated,” Lee answered. Obama’s rhetoric “may have been an inarticulate way of describing what the realities are.”

Inarticulate: If you like your plan you can keep your plan.

Articulate: Train wreck.
