Carney Takes The Long Route To Admitting Obama’s ‘You Can Keep Your Plan’ Promise Isn’t True

October 28, 2013 by  

From today’s White House press briefing: Fox News’ Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Jay Carney if he still maintained that the President’s infamous promise – that Americans who liked their health plans could keep them under Obamacare – is still true today.

Here’s Carney’s long admission:

Carney: “Well, well, let’s – let’s just be clear. What – what the President said, and everybody said all along is that – there are gonna be changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act that create minimum standards of coverage. Minimum services that every insurance plan has to provide…so that an individual shopping for insurance, ah, when he or she purchases that insurance, knows that maternity care is covered; preventive services are covered; that mental health services are covered; that the insurance policy you buy doesn’t have an annual limit, or a lifetime limit; that there re out-of-pocket expenses capped at a maximum level both annually and for a lifetime, so – it’s true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don’t meet those minimum standards and therefore, ah, do not qualify for the Affordable Care Act; there are some that can be grandfathered if people wanna keep insurance that’s substandard.”
