It’s the question-du-jour about the health care law known as Obamacare: Are people going to be able to keep their health insurance if they like it?
President Barack Obama has several times said yes. We’ve been skeptical of that claim (along with a few other claims from the law’s supporters.) Last year, PolitiFact in Washington, D.C., rated his statement Half True.
Obama’s statement had a reasonable point: His health care law does take pains to allow Americans to keep their health plan, especially people who get their insurance through work.
But most people have never been able to keep their insurance through thick and thin.
