White House: Obama bin Lyin'

AP:
"No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people," Obama said Monday, addressing the American Medical Association. "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."

He didn't let up.

"If you like what you're getting, keep it," Obama said. "Nobody is forcing you to shift."

[...]

White House officials suggest the president's rhetoric shouldn't be taken literally: What Obama really means is that government isn't about to barge in and force people to change insurance.

Well, if the government taxes employer plans to the point many employers drop them for cheaper ObamaCare, or if the government forces private insurers and providers to subsidize ObamaCare as they do Medicare, that's not technically "barging in and forcing people to change insurance."

But it's definitely not "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."
