Obama's Promises Unravel on Obama Care

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.
