WhiteHouse.Gov Article from 2009: "If you Like Your Insurance Plan you will be Able to Keep" It

In a beyond-hypocritical and beyond-ironic article from 2009 entitled "Facts Are Stubborn Things," declared that "if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them."  Of course, we all know now that these "stubborn facts" were bald-faced lies since the very beginning.

The article, which is still up on the site at the moment, goes into a tirade against "the internet" for spreading "misinformation" to voters.  The piece, written by White House Director of New Media Macon Phillips, blares that these internet people are lying when they have stated that people might lose their insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

"Facts Are Stubborn Things" begins by snarling, "Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, 'facts are stubborn things.'" Republicans and "chain e-mailers," Phillips writes, are trying to "make it look like the President intends to 'eliminate' private coverage, when the reality couldn’t be further from the truth."

Phillips then confidently declares: "For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them." Well, that sentence has been noted on "the record." And the President, sir, is a liar.

After lying to you with false "facts," Phillips then asks you to snitch on anyone who might think that you might lose your insurance under ObamaCare so that the White House can "track" them. He explains:
"Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to"

Here is a screenshot of the article, in case the White House decides that it needs to disappear:
