What was wrong with the premise? “You said millions of people lost their health care,” Tester responded.

What about news reports saying as much?

“They’re wrong,” Tester said. He continued, “I think what we’ve got is we’ve got a current system that we’re moving out of that has a whole bunch of people who don’t have insurance. We’re going to try to get them insurance.”

So was President Obama wrong when he said Americans could keep their insurance if they like it? Tester didn’t say.

“Shut the door,” he told the Capitol elevator operator. “I didn’t pick that up.”
