Obamacare website scraped clean of ‘If you like your plan, you can keep your plan’ lie
Do you remember when President Obama promised “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor
? We do! But clearly it’s a line the Obama administration wants us to forget…
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” was President Barack Obama’s signature catchphrase he used to sell the Affordable Care Act to the American people. Now Obamacare’s flagship website, healthcare.gov, no longer even addresses the issue.
Ironically, the section in question was the first public (if indirect) admission by the Obama administration that the president’s promise was less than a “guarantee.” As THE WEEKLY STANDARD first reported in July 2013, the website told consumers that they “may be able to keep your current doctor,” in contrast to the president’s unequivocal statement: “Here is a guarantee that I’ve made. If you have insurance that you like, then you will be able to keep that insurance. If you’ve got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.”
The original website contained a section entitled [sic] “Can I keep my own doctor?”, later revised to “How to keep your doctor.”
Obamacare was predicated on a lie, and it’s forcing Americans to tighten their belts while health-insurance companies’ so-called losses are backed by the full faith and credit of you, the American taxpayer.
