Worse than I remembered

Obamacare Sickens American Workers | National Review Online: "“If you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period,” Obama infamously claimed while peddling the so-called Affordable Care Act (ACA)."

This is worse than I remembered the quote being. I remember him saying that if you liked your current health care plan "nothing in this bill will take it away from you," or something to that effect. I thought it was something that allowed him some wiggle room that would let him say later to people who had been dropped by their insurers or companies or whose policies had been changed by their insurers or employers that is wasn't the ACA that was responsible, at least not directly. But he really did make a flat categorical statement. It will be fascinating to see how he attempts to wiggle out of it--that is if he is ever asked by the press about it--that is if he ever has a press conference again.
