Her policy has not changed in 15 years except for the premiums , so do you think this is just a coincidence?

She told them she would like to keep what she has and was told that's not an option.

THE FACTS: Obama said “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” It was an empty promise, made repeatedly. .

Nothing in the health care law guarantees that people can keep the health insurance they already have. Costs can rise, benefits can change and employers can drop coverage.
Insurance policies that are offered must now meet minimum standards, covering more preventive services but that doesn’t mean the status quo goes on for those who like what they’ve got now.
Mincing words again. Obama said that you could keep your insurance if you like. He did not mean that he had control over the insurance companies. Insurance companies change their plans and premiums all the time. isn't that what you love about capitalism?
