Josh Earnest, special assistant to the president, is calling out NBC on its scoop that 40 to 67 percent of health insurance policy holders could be receiving cancellation notices, and the president was aware of those numbers three years ago. NBC’s Lisa Myers is sticking by her reporting, which Twitchy covered earlier tonight. NBC reports that President Obama knew in 2010 that millions would lose their insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

It looks like the administration is going full speed ahead with its spin that you didn’t want to keep your lousy old policy anyway, so why fret over a broken promise?
“Better” benefits? Regardless, that’s not what President Obama promised. Cancellation of more than 10 million insurance policies was not mentioned during the campaign.
