Obama:"Now, if you had one of these substandard plans before the affordable care act became law and you really liked that plan, you were able to keep it..............but........ what we said under the law is, you’ve got to replace them with quality, comprehensive coverage, because that, too, was a central premise of the Affordable Care Act from the very beginning. And today, that promise means that every plan in the marketplace covers a core set of minimum benefits like maternity care and preventative care and prescription drug benefits and hospitalization, and they can’t use allergies or pregnancy or a sports injury or the fact that you’re a woman to charge you more. They can’t do that anymore. They can’t do that anymore. If you couldn’t afford coverage because your child had asthma, well, he’s now covered. If you are one of the 45 million Americans with a mental illness, you’re now covered.

I just figured out what that speech reminded me of, with the "substandard plan" vs. "Quality Comprehensive Coverage". It reminds me after me and my sisters would finish trick or treating when we were kids and we would start to barter, "hey, you wanna trade your disgusting Clark Bar for this super cool box of fruity Dots?"
