At Townhall, Katie Pavlich has the perfect alternate headline: “Jay Carney Berates Insurance Companies For Complying With Obamacare.”

From the WaPo:

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday that President Obama did not mislead the American people when he said the anybody who liked his or her health insurance plan could keep it after the health-care law’s implementation.

“No,” Carney said at Tuesday’s White house briefing when asked directly whether Obama misled. “The president was clear about a basic fact: If you had insurance that you liked on the individual market and you wanted to keep that insurance through 2010, ’11, ’12, ’13, and in perpetuity if you wanted it and it was available, you could. You were grandfathered in.”
[…]
“So again, in all of these cases, what is absolutely true is that if you had a plan before the Affordable Care Act that you liked on the individual market, and your insurance company didn’t take that away from you and offer you instead something else that you then purchased, but they provided you the same plan this whole time, you can keep it. And that’s true.”

Calculations guesstimating “40 to 67 percent” of individuals might lose their current polices upon implementation of Obamacare appear in the ACA regulations. But nice try, Jay.

By the way, this “Reality Check” is still up on the White House website:

Uh huh.
