Это на все ту же тему, реформы здравоохранения, проводимой Обамой.

Обычно, очень лояльная к Обаме Los Angeles Times разразилась статьей.

If there were problems, the president predicted, they would be “glitches.”

And he said, “If you like the plan you have, you can keep it.”

Such claims have come back to haunt the president and his allies less than a month into the launch of the online insurance marketplaces at the heart of his healthcare legislation. With the federal website hobbled by bad design and thousands of policyholders receiving cancellation notices, Obama’s promises are not being met — prompting charges of deception from some Republicans and concessions from some allies that elements of the law were oversold.

The fallout is only the latest chapter in this White House’s three-year struggle to sell the public on the Affordable Care Act, which could come to define the president’s legacy. Since signing it into law, the president has variously defended it, promoted it, simplified it and hyped it.
