President Obama's lie about keeping your health insurance plans is now an "incorrect promise," according to the New York Times.

"If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” Obama said on multiple occasions since 2008, promising Americans that they could keep their health insurance in spite of Obamacare.

He made the same promise about being able to keep your doctor and he promised that the average family would see a $2,500 decrease in health insurance costs.

According to the Times, Obama "seeks to follow through on last week’s acknowledgment about his incorrect promise on health care coverage" as he struggles to find a way to sway critics.

The article containing the "incorrect promise" terminology was published in the national news section of the newspaper, not the editorial section, which is famous for its unerring support of Obama.

The Times was widely mocked after a Nov. 2 editorial told readers that Obama "clearly misspoke" when he pledged to Americans that they could keep their health care plans.
