REP. NANCY PELOSI (D-CA): They're saying he said one thing and not the other. The president said, 'if you like your plan, you can keep it.' For 95% of the American people who have health insurance, that is the case. For a small number in the private market, they will do better because of the Patient's Bill of Rights that is built into our legislation -- no preexisting conditions, no lifetime limits, no copay, all the rest of that for certain people. So, they will do better. That's 95% of people who have health insurance, have it through their employer, through Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Administration. So, we're just talking about 5% -- significant, but nonetheless largely will do better.
