The President knew that 7 in 10 people who bought individual health insurance policies would not be able to keep their policies when he said, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan, …If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
According to this report the President flat out lied to millions of policyholders.
I suspect that with Mr. Obama, the means do justify the ends. That is a very dangerous disposition for a president.
“So what if I lied? We instituted a nationwide healthcare system. And really, what are you going to do about it anyway? Forward!”

President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
