Feinstein: Obama Meant You Could Keep Your Plan Until Obamacare Was Enacted

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said on CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday that it was her understanding that what President Barack Obama meant when he and other administration officials said that if you like your health-care plan you can keep it, is that you would be allowed to keep the plan until Obamacare was enacted.

No, this isn't a question of semantics. She admitted that Obama's promise that you could keep your health care plan is false.

Bob Schieffer: "The president said in the beginning that one thing was that if you liked the health care program you had - you could keep it. We now know there was debate within the administration before he said that as to whether that was actually a promise that could be kept. Should the president not have made that statement?"

Sen. Dianne Feinstein: "Well, as I understand it, you can keep it up to the time - and I hope this is correct, but this is what I've been told - up to the time the bill was enacted, and after that, it's a different story.  That part of it, if true, was never made clear."

Feinstein is chairwoman of the Senate intelligence committee.
