Obama's rhetoric is that, under his plan, if you like the private
healthcare plan you currently have, you can keep it. Under the
proposed legislation, however, if the plan your employer has
does not comply with the specifics mandated by the law, the
employer will have to drop the private plan within 5 years, and
its employees will have to be enrolled in the
government-mandated program.

On June 24, House Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price [R-GA] questioned White House Economic Adviser Christine Romer about Obama's claim, and the claim of the Democratic House leadership that "...if you like the healthcare plan you have, you can keep it." That is a false assertion. If the plan you are under, that provides adequate, affordable healthcare, but it doesn't comply with the specifics mandated by the Obama healthcare reform act (that, as of June 19 did not have an official name), you or your employer (depending on whether your coverage is individual or group) will only be able to keep it for five years. According to the draft legislation, at the end of 5 years you will have to be enrolled in the government plan.
