Congress wrote Obamacare and passed it, with then Speaker Nancy Pelosi leading the charge as she said that Congress had to pass it just to find out what’s in it. That makes her latest remarks all the more remarkable.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who shepherded Obamacare through the House as speaker, said Obama was “very gracious” in making that apology but that the president’s words – in the context of the law – were “absolutely” precise.

“There’s nothing in the Affordable Care Act that says that your insurance company should cancel you,” she told reporters. “That’s not what the Affordable Care Act is about. It simply didn’t happen.”

That cancellation letter that you got from your insurance company because your policy does not comply with Obamacare’s restrictions? Not real. Didn’t happen. Not her fault.

She continued that she did not make a similar statement to her constituents, noting that she “would have if I ever met anybody that liked his or her plan, but that was not my experience.”

Hm. Maybe Democrats meant the “If you like your healthcare” phrase in a different way than anyone realized. They didn’t believe anyone liked their plan, so the fact that the law jeopardizes so many millions of plans was never a problem and their promise wouldn’t be broken.

"They didn’t believe anyone liked their plan, so the fact that the law jeopardizes so many millions of plans was never a problem and their promise wouldn’t be broken."

I think you've summed up the Democrats' position.

A. Only bad insurance plans have been cancelled.
B. You don't like bad insurance plans.
Therefore:
C. If your insurance plan got cancelled, it means you didn't like it.
D. If your insurance plan did not get cancelled, it means you liked it and Obama kept his promise.

Is there a flaw in that logic somewhere? Clever people, help me out here...

She never met anybody who liked their healthcare plan?

Every Congressman gets 100% taxpayer paid, zero deductible, lifetime healthcare. They even have their own in house clinic, staffed by doctors and nurses whenever Congress is in session.

Unless you are born with a doctor as your Siamese twin, just how much better can it get?

And the unions, who got a special provision in the law that says it doesn't apply to plans that are collectively bargained for, which only applies to unions. It is no doubt just a massive coincidence that they give hundreds of millions of dollars extorted from their "members" in every election cycle, nearly exclusively to Democrats.

They are not totally happy though, because another provision of ObamaCare heavily taxes cadillac plans, probably designed to punished the rich who can afford such coverage, but many of the union plans are also gilt-edged solid gold. They've been lobbying for another special exemption for their plans. Look for that to be a new "interpretation" of the law in the near future.
