So many people, including news organizations, political groups and in fact anyone with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo as it existed before the ACA, have been blaming President Obama for “lying” about being able to keep their insurance plans , especially since the rash of cancellation letters forthcoming from the insurance companies. Well, guess what? We have evidence that completely proves Obama’s statements about being able to keep your health insurance if you wanted to were true!
