ObamaCare architect says you can keep your doctor… if you pay more

According to the architect of Obamacare, Dr. Zeke Emanuel, when President Obama said “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” he meant only if you want to pay more.

Emanuel appeared on Fox News Sunday and host Chris Wallace asked him if Obama’s promise was “just as false, just as misleading, as his promise about if you like your plan, you can keep your plan?”

The initial answer offered was that “the president never said you were going to have unlimited choice of any doctor in the country you want to go to.”

“It’s a simple yes or no question,” Wallace pressed. “Did he say if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor?”

“Yes. But look, if you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that,” Emanuel responded. “This is a matter of choice.”

Wallace pointed out that this means premiums will probably go up.

“No one guaranteed you that your premium wouldn’t increase,” Emanuel said. “Premiums have been going up.”

Which ignores another broken promise from the president, that his signature healthcare plan would reduce premiums by up to $2500 per year.

    Boy, are these people something else. T his guy Ezekiel Emanuel is one of the main architects of Obama Care. I understand that in his “the complete life System which say’s if you are younger then 14 years, or older than 40 we are a “drag” on the state and should be denied health care. This is the guy that was involved in Obama,s Health Care. Can this be . ????????????? This can’t be true. If it is it sounds like something Hitler would have tried.

    Nazis may have invented the technique of the BIG LIE but our modern Democrat party, led by Obama, has perfected it.

    Nazis knew you could only keep up the BIG LIE as long as you could shield the people from reality. Once that reality manifests itself the BIG LIE fails. Here is a parody video I made to illustrate (check it out – we all need a good laugh about now):
