You just knew this one was coming.  How often did the president promise that if you like your current insurance policy, you can keep your insurance policy.  So often it was a mantra.  And it was false according to current Adm. plans.  From the story:

Internal administration documents reveal that up to 51% of employers may have to relinquish their current health care coverage because of ObamaCare. Small firms will be even likelier to lose existing plans. The “midrange estimate is that 66% of small employer plans and 45% of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfathered status by the end of 2013,” according to the document. In the worst-case scenario, 69% of employers — 80% of smaller firms — would lose that status, exposing them to far more provisions under the new health law. The 83-page document, a joint project of the departments of Health and Human Services, Labor and the IRS, examines the effects that ObamaCare’s regulations would have on existing, or “grandfathered,” employer-based health care plans.

With this publicity, the “plan” will probably be reconfigured to put on a better face.  Nevertheless, it reveals the hollowness of the president’s assurances and the unreliability of his word.

Revoke. Replace. Reform. Defund.
