President Obama sold the Affordable Care Act aka Obama Care to the American people based on four promises. To gain public support for his landmark new entitlement, lacking bi-partisan support and whose content was unknown, the President pledged:
1) If you like your current insurance you can keep it.
2) If you like your doctor you can keep him or her.
3) The ten-year cost of Obama Care will be less than $1 trillion.
4) Obama Care will not add one dime to the deficit.
All four of these promises have been broken according to the administration’s own experts (See: Health and Human Services, Estimated Financial Effects of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” as Amended and Congressional Budget Office-Joint Committee on Taxation, Estimates for the Insurance Coverage Provisions of the Affordable Care Act Updated for the Recent Supreme Court Decision). His fifth promise – universal health
care coverage – has long been forgotten. Government studies find there
will be thirty million uninsured after a decade of Obama Care.
