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.

Charlotte DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has caused some headaches for President Obama this week. First, she falsely claimed the Israeli ambassador told her Republicans are "dangerous" for Israel, and then she dishonestly claimed that Philip Klein, that the journalist who had accurately reported her statement, had "deliberately" misquoted her.
