THAT’S A MIGHTY BIG ‘IF’ MR. PRESIDENT - President Obama now says he never promised voters they could keep their health insurance plans, “period.” Talking to top backers of his permanent campaign arm, Organizing for Action, at a Washington meeting Monday night, the president made a new claim: “What we said was, ‘You could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed.’” The president gave voice to an excuse that had so far only been offered by spokesmen: That the “if you like it” claim was trumped by a less-publicized promise to ban barebones insurance policies. “If we had allowed these old plans [to continue]… then we would have broken an even more important promise — making sure that Americans gain access to health care that doesn’t leave them one illness away from financial ruin.” Obama’s promise priorities are expected to result in the cancellation of some 3.5 million Americans’ policies.

OBAMACARE STUCK IN THE SWAMP - Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., is solidifying her place as the leading Democratic voice against ObamaCare provisions that banned millions of existing health insurance policies. She took to the Senate floor Monday blasting the president and the cancellations that have occurred as a result of his new entitlement program. Landrieu read a constituent’s cancellation notice from the floor charging, “This letter should never have gone out.” Landrieu has offered legislation requiring insurers to sell coverage that would otherwise be banned, so individuals will not lose their current policies.
