At this point, after all we've discovered about Obamacare, the question isn't why nearly half of Americans polled by Rasmussen don't believe they will be able to keep their insurance policies as Obama promised, but rather what the hell is wrong with the other half that they actually think so?
Nearly half of voters with health insurance do not believe President Obama's promise that they will be able to keep it under the new healthcare reform law, according to a poll released Monday.
Forty-five percent of voters with healthcare insurance believe they will be forced to change coverage, including 26 percent who say it is "very likely," according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll. Meanwhile, 46 percent said it's unlikely that they will have to change coverage, including 19 percent who said it is "not at all likely."
To refresh your memory:
During the 2008 presidential campaign and while Congress drafted the reform law, Obama repeatedly said the law would not require individuals to change their coverage.
"If you like your doctor, you're going to be able to keep your doctor," Obama said at George Mason University in March, just days before he signed the reform law. "If you like your plan, keep your plan."
Yes, yes...and God didn't make little green apples and it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime. Of course, by the time people have figured out just how many lies they've been told about Obamacare, the law will already be ripping the guts out of the economy and there will be precious little to be done - unless the Supreme Court strikes it down or the GOP gets massive majorities in 2012 and repeals the monstrosity.
