Reporters are beginning to catch on, albeit a few years late. ABC’s Rick Klein noted a month ago that the idea that Americans could keep their insurance plans if they liked them under Obamacare was a promise that was “never possible to keep.” This month, Business Insider’s Josh Barro argued that “there are a lot of health plans that Americans shouldn’t be able to keep,” whether they like them or not.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper is asking tonight why President Obama kept repeating that line when it was so obviously untrue.

You’re not guaranteed to receive a cancellation notice, though reportedly more than a million have, because their policies don’t meet the minimum standards set up by the Affordable Care Act.
@andersoncooper You can keep your plan if its still offered blaming the prez is a stretch when a business decides to change what it offers.

.@aseaborne they are changing what they offer because the new law requires them to. They plans do not cover what the new law requires
