Yep. And as Twitchy reported, the GOP should drum that home over and over: Obama lied. Period.
It wasn’t just a bald-faced lie. It was one that was told over and over on purpose, while shamefully knowing it was untrue, as Ace of Spades points out.
is there some reason that the right are not talking about this?!?! I don't get it. This is the ballgame, people. http://t.co/IVJBtxRJij

Yes, Obama's admin wrote the regs in such a way that you couldn't keep your plan. Laszewski noted the same thing. http://t.co/z0u1gQKcDH

More from Ace of Spades:
The article then notes that while the law did in fact say, essentially, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan, the HHS wrote its regulations in contradiction to the law of the United States and not only “interpreted the provision narrowly,” as Lisa Meyer said, but actually changed its meaning to take back the protection the law afforded.
And thus, Obama didn’t just “know” he wouldn’t be able to keep his promise; he actively worked, through his inferior officers, to break that promise himself.
Shameful, but not unexpected from President Pants on Fire.
