Throughout President Obama’s campaign for Obamacare, he repeatedly said Americans could keep their health care plan. White House press secretary Jay Carney was forced to admit Monday that statement wasn’t entirely true.

Once again, Fox News’ Ed Henry has attempted to hold Carney’s feet to the fire, asking direct questions about President Obama’s marketing of Obamacare.

“The president, when he was trying to get the law passed, repeatedly said, if you currently have health insurance you will be able to keep your plan,” Henry said. “This morning David Axelrod was pressed on that point and said, the majority – the vast majority – will be able to keep their plans. He no longer works at the White House. From that podium, will you admit that when president said, if you have a plan, you’ll get to keep it, that that was not true?”

Carney said that the president had said all along that there were going to be changes brought about that would create changes to the minimum standards. But after rambling on, he finally admitted the truth.

“So it’s true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that do not meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the Affordable Care Act,” Carney said.
