WASHINGTON (AP) --President Barack Obama says he's sorry Americans are losing health insurance plans he said they could keep.

Obama is apologizing to Americans who have found themselves in that situation based on assurances they got from him. He tells NBC News that the administration will do everything it can to help people who are in a difficult situation because of the cancellations.

Obama for years told Americans that under his health care law, if they liked their health insurance, they would be able to keep it.

But millions are receiving cancellation notices in the mail. The White House in recent days has clarified that people can keep their plans as long as insurance companies haven't changed the plans since the law was enacted.

At least the man said he is sorry. ALL politicians lie! This is not new. He was ignorant to make such a "promise." I do not like nor do I promise anything. When it is broken~and many are~the fall out is usually painful. I realize the other comments are from those that do not like the man, but he is the president. Obviously more people wanted to give him a second term than those that wanted Romney for our leader. Also, I believe the health care insurance industry did more damage by dropping people cause they CAN! HMO's caused many upsets when they came about. And they still do. The many dedicated physicians I know just want to care for their patience, but they have had to become business men to deal with the health insurance. There will be many more bumps along the way with this issue. Nothing starts out "perfect."

He's sorry? Not as sorry as we are that he ever got elected.

This is just plain sick. He lied, he knows he lied, his cabinet lies, his advisors lie, and all his appointees lie. Where will this end. We are an embarrassment in all parts of the world. In front of our eyes he is (through all his flunkies)undermining the entire U.S. economy, printing worthless money, continually borrowing money, constantly pushing our debt limit higher and higher. And to top it off, he is pushing the coupe-de gras....the unaffordable: "Affordable Health Care Act", which our country cannot afford, nor our citizens. But, as Nancy Pilosi said: Just sign it, you can read it later.......about 4 years ago and almost 300 changes and an ever increasing size currently at 2,700 pages. Too many health insurance companies had to close because they offered 'cafeteria health plans' and would not force coverage people didn't want or need. Sorry just does not cut it, from any president, elected/appointed official, or supporter. They all need to be fined/jailed/and lose all privileges and benefits from their office. And that would only be a small effort compared to the damage they have inflicted.
