Obama: ‘If you like your plan you can keep it’ was a lie, and that’s why I’ve kept that promise

“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” – Barack Obama, June 15, 2010

“If you like your plan you can keep your plan” is fast becoming the lie of the century. With that in mind, speaking to a friendly gathering of OFA Obamacare proponents Monday, President Obama figured it might be a good time to again re-write history:

“While virtually every insurer is offering new, better plans and competing for these folks’ business,” Obama said of the people who are losing their current insurance, “I realize that can be scary for people if you just get some notice like that.”

“If you had or have one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law,” the president said, “and you really like that plan, what we said was, you could keep it… if it hasn’t changed since the law’s passed.”

“If it hasn’t changed since the law’s passed” is an addendum to the promise that Obama has previously mentioned… never.

Wait, it gets better. Obama also said that his guarantee of “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” wasn’t true, but that was for your own good, and that was part of the same promise, or something:

For more on that dizzying spin style do a quick search for “liar paradox.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger performs a much shorter and more effective version of what Obama was trying to say here.

And for the 100th time, Obama’s original selling point:


“If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period.”

Period.

Period!

Here’s a good accompanying soundtrack for Obama’s latest spin: “I’d lie for you and that’s the truth”:
