Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida congresswoman and chair of the Democratic National Committee, told viewers of MSNBC Tuesday that Americans were not "myzled" by President Obama when it came to being able to keep their health plans under Obamacare.

"[W]hat we're talking about is insurance companies who chose not to keep the plan they could have grandfathered, and they chose to change the plan that they were making available to people that they already insured in the individual market," she said.
