Minority leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters yesterday that she never told constituents they could keep their insurance it they liked it.
The Weekly Standard reported:
“Did I ever tell my constituents that if they liked their plan they could keep it?” Pelosi asked. “I would have if I’d ever met anybody who liked his or her plan. But that was not my experience.”
In fact, Pelosi said in 2009: “If you like what you have, you can keep it.” Pelosi’s website still states: “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”

And, Speaker Pelosi also made the same promise when she was in St. Louis campaigning for former Rep. Russ Carnahan back in 2009. Pelosi told the the St. Louis crowd with Obamacare,
“If you like what you have you can keep it.”
