Jonathan Karl: Is the President's "If You Like Your Doctor You Can Keep Your Doctor" Promise Still Operative?
Comically Evasive Mouthpiece Jay Carney: [600 Meandering Words]

You can read Carney's response at Weekly Standard.
I wish they had not chosen to divide it into paragraphs; more accurate would have been to have just presented a Wall of Words.

Carney's answer is this, in short: You will have the option of picking a new plan which may include your doctor... if you pay for "more comprehensive coverage," which will have "broader networks." So if you can get past the sticker shock of the Bronze Plan, and past the even greater sticker shock of the Silver Plan, and finally check out the comprehensive coverage of the Gold Plan, which is fantastically expensive, sure, you can find a network that includes your doctor.

Sure.

Incidentally, Jay Carney uses the bullying tactic he's used with Jonathan Karl before. The tactic consists of suggesting all the other reporters are mad at Jonathan Karl for asking dumb questions, so why don't you just shut up?

He's done this before, telling Karl something like "you can hear sighs of exasperation from the other reporters because they get this," in explaining another, get this, Obama lie.

Now he says "Jon, I think everyone here understands how private insurance works," again attempting to rally Liberal Reporter Peer Pressure to get Karl to stop asking impertinent, irrelevant questions like "Did the president lie to the American public?"
