Then, the infamous Obamacare website woman's identity was revealed...and we learned that she never gave permission for the White House to use her photo, she was never paid for its use, she hasn't signed-up for Obamacare...and she's not a U.S. citizen.
Obama has always insisted he would keep the Obamacare promise -- except for this one time in 2010 when he told the truth. What do you call 8-9 million people losing health care coverage they like, in a nation of 300 million? (Actually, probably more like15 millionat the low end, several tens of millions at the high end.)
A rounding error?
REP. ERIC CANTOR (R-VA): "…Because I don’t think you can answer the question in the positive to say that people will be able to maintain their coverage, people will be able to see the doctors they want, in the kind of bill that you are proposing..."
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: "Since you asked me a question, let me respond. The 8 to 9 million people you refer to that might have to change their coverage — keep in mind out of the 300 million Americans that we are talking about — would be folks who the CBO, the Congressional Budget Office, estimates would find the deal in the exchange better — would be a better deal. So, yes, they would change coverage because they got more choice and competition."
In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd (video above), the president was asked -- more than once -- if he still had confidence in HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius (whose department was responsible for the ill-fated Obamacare enrollment roll-out). To no one's surprise, Mr. Obama dodged the questions.

Anyone want to venture a guess why Sebelius didn't get a rousing vote of confidence from her boss? Anyone want to venture a guess what fate probably awaits Sebelius?
