David Axelrod offered a slightly different promise about Obamacare than has the president: While that president has repeatedly said, “If you like your plan, you can keep it,” Axelrod on Monday told MSNBC that “most” will be able to stick with their plan.
“Most people are going to keep their own plan,” Axelrod said in a discussion with Senator Tom Coburn (R., Okla.). “The majority of people in this country — the vast majority of people in this country — are keeping their plan.”
Axelrod’s rephrased guarantee comes as reports of millions of Americans losing their healthcare plans are rolling in. Last week, Senator Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) announced he would introduce the “If You Like Your Health Plan, You Can Keep it Act,” which would allow people to keep their current plan regardless of the mandates of Obamacare.
