    sloppy journalism.  No one can deny that there has been a lot of it surrounding these so-called "sticker shock" stories.  And, lots of people have been doing a great job debunking them.  And I think, yes, it is important to call it out - especially when it appears on the front page of a major newspaper such as the Washington Post (especially when they bury on page A15 a story about all the people losing food stamps!!!)  

    But, also, too I will share my two cents on the whole alleged dishonesty of the "if you like your insurance, you can keep it" statement:    embedded in that statement is the (IMHO quite reasonable) assumption that no one actually likes or wants crap/junk not really insurance insurance policies that will actually leave them up shit's creek with no paddle in case of serious illness or accident.  So, really, perhaps, the President was giving people too much credit by making that statement.
