“You can keep your plan and your doctor if you like what you have.”

What he didn’t say: “If your employer doesn’t mind paying extra for you to have it.” Another lie–and for you libs out there in la la land, that means a deliberate falsehood–not “anything that pisses me off!”–coming to fruition, albeit sooner than I bet Obama would have liked:

Fortune-Documents reveal AT&T, Verizon, others, thought about dropping employer-sponsored benefits

I’m SHOCKED! SHOCKED, I tell you!  That the administration couldn’t foresee that making the penalties cheaper than the coverage would push employers to drop coverage!?!  The only quibble I have with the Fortune piece is their intro:

Internal documents recently reviewed by Fortune, originally requested by Congress, show what the bill’s critics predicted, and what its champions dreaded: many large companies are examining a course that was heretofore unthinkable, dumping the health care coverage they provide to their workers in exchange for paying penalty fees to the government.

Of course it wasn’t “unthinkable”…they planned it all along…they always knew it. Like the leftists said in meetings they subsequently disavowed: “This isn’t a Trojan horse–it’s right out there for everyone to see. This is the first step toward single payer.”  Now, they may not have wanted it to come to light this soon, but they knew it–you can bet your bottom dollar they knew it.

There’s going to be a bloodbath over this healthcare bill before it’s done–politically speaking, for you hyperventilating lefties out there–and I wouldn’t want to have a (D) after my name when the reckonin’ comes….
