Carney forced to admit WH knew Americans could not keep healthcare plans

President Obama has repeatedly promised that Americans could keep their health care plan when Obamacare takes effect, but White House press secretary Jay Carney was forced to admit Monday that the statement isn’t entirely true.

Once again, Fox News’ Ed Henry held Carney’s feet to the fire, asking direct questions about Obama’s marketing of the Affordable Care Act.

“The president, when he was trying to get the law passed, repeatedly said, if you currently have health insurance, you will be able to keep your plan,” Henry said. “This morning David Axelrod was pressed on that point and said the majority – the vast majority – will be able to keep their plans. He no longer works at the White House. From that podium, will you admit that when president said, ‘If you have a plan, you’ll get to keep it,’ that that was not true?”

Carney said the president had maintained all along that the law would bring changes to the minimum standards of health care. But after rambling on, he finally admitted the truth.

“So it’s true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that do not meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the Affordable Care Act,” Carney said.

    Yes, this is going to blow up in their faces in a very substantial way. The goal needs to be absolute non-cooperation now.

    For those of you who may not understand what Carney is saying, let me interpret it for you. he starts by saying “we lied to the public, bullshit, bullshit, we are still lying to the public, bullshit, bullshit. and what the president said was bullshit, bullshit, and he is a lying crook, bullshit, and that is what we have said all along, bullshit. That’s what I got out of that briefing anyways.
