Dianne Feinstein stops defending NSA spying long enough to support you keeping your health plan

Just a few short days ago, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said you could keep you healthcare plan up until the bill was passed. (See video) She seemed confused, but OK, on that point. I guess she should have read the bill before she passed it or at least read it in the three years since it has been passed. I guess attempting to ban guns, butt kissing Obama's NSA and dodging debates with her political opponents has kept Feinstein too busy.

Via Politico:
It’s not just red-state Democrats who want to take aggressive steps to mend controversial provisions in Obamacare.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that she will co-sponsor a bill by Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) to require insurance companies to continue offering their existing health care plans — a way to make good on President Barack Obama’s promise that consumers can keep their current coverage if they like it.
“This bill provides a simple fix to a complex problem,” Feinstein said in a statement Tuesday, calling Landrieu’s proposal a “commonsense fix” and urged Congress to pass it “quickly.”
Actually, I doubt Landrieu's bill as stated above would even be constitutional. How can the federal government "require" anyone to sell something they don't want to sell? I could be wrong though. I still think it's unconstitutional to make someone buy a private product or pay a penalty tax. (May John Roberts burn in Hell someday)
