WASHINGTON - The fallout over President Barack Obama's signature health care law is expanding, and may people are now questioning whether he knowingly misled Americans.
Obama was heard repeatedly saying, "If you like your plan, keep your plan," but Americans are now finding out that under the Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare," they may not actually be able to keep their current health care policies.
Republicans argue that the president's claims have not been clear with 300,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield policies canceled in Florida and 160,000 Kaiser Permanente plans cut in California. Some Democrats are also saying that Obama should have chosen his words more carefully.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney say that it's not the health care law taking away individual plans, but the insurance companies.
Nearly 15 million more people who receive coverage through individual plans may see their policies changed or canceled because they fall short of the law's requirements. Those consumers can buy new, and possibly more expensive, insurance plans under the law, and may be able to apply for subsidies.
