Sean Higgins, a senior writer for the Washington Examiner, points out that CNN’s Stephanie Cutter, who served as President Obama’s deputy campaign manager in 2012, had echoed Obama’s false claim that Obamacare would protect those people who wanted to keep their health insurance plans. Cutter was a member of Obama’s “truth team.” On CNN’s “Crossfire,” Cutter, one of the liberal co-hosts, failed to come completely clean on the November 8 program: “…let’s talk about the President’s apology. He’s sorry because some Americans are losing their insurance plans, and their new plans are costing more. And he did promise that if you liked your plan, you can keep it, but the way the law has unfolded doesn’t live up to that promise. And admittedly I’ve used that line, too, and there’s no doubt the administration oversold it.”
