After President Obama’s promise that Americans could keep their preferred health plan won “Lie of the Year,” the nation’s commander in chief has blatantly reneged on his own words.
“Many folks, they’re going to have to make some choices,” Obama told WebMD. “And they might have to switch doctors, in part because they’re saving money.”
Carefully trying to remove the sting and tread softly around a commitment made more than 30 times, Obama told Americans that Obamacare is good medicine.
“But that’s true if your employer suddenly decides we think this network’s going to give a better deal, we think this is going to help keep premiums lower, you’ve got to use this doctor as opposed to that one, this hospital as opposed to that one,” he said. “The good news is, in most states, people have more than one option, and what they’ll find, I think, is that their doctor or network that’s conveniently located is probably in one of those networks.”
Aside from such assumptions, Obama’s timing is bizarre, since only two weeks remain for open enrollment. But dealing straight with the American public has never been one of his strong suits, as he continues to rack up points for lying.
