If You Like Your Plan: Part #4,287

One of the most pernicious claims made by President Obama (and his surrogates) has been the promise that "if you like your current insurance, you can keep it." No rational person ever actually bought that, but it made a great sound-bite (or 3,000). As we all know, with each passing year we're been offered fewer and fewer choices, and very few people have been able to actually keep their plans.

Folks in the Tar Heel State have even fewer choices coming up in November:

"Most in N.C. will have one Obamacare option in 2017"

And to no one's real surprise, that carrier is ... Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Yes, that Blue Cross:

"The N.C. Department of Insurance announced Monday it will broaden its investigation into Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, citing “disagreements” with the insurer."

Looks like that particular endeavor is about to hit the trash bin of history.
