#TBT: “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.”

June 12, 2014

If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

These are some of the promises President Obama repeatedly made to the American people as he attempted to sell his health care law to the American people. But as Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton commented, “Sadly, even those who wrote this law knew that its mandates and structure would not allow the president to keep these promises, no matter how often Mr. Obama repeated them.”

As the administration attempts to declare the debate over and hosts yet another celebration to toast former Secretary Sebelius’ “success,” this morning the Subcommittee on Health continues to hold the administration accountable for this and its many broken health care promises.
