Top 10 Broken Obamacare Promises
When everything about Obama is a lie, it can be hard to limit the list to 10.
Check it out:
Since the passage of Obamacare in 2010, many of the President’s famous promises have been routinely broken. As he so ironically threatened in 2009, “If you misrepresent what’s in this plan, we will call you out.” To that end, here are 10 promises of Obamacare that have already been broken.
1. “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.”
Millions of Americans have lost and will lose their current coverage due to Obamacare.
4.7 million reported health insurance cancellations or changes of existing policies in 32 states.
2. “[T]hat means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.”
Many Americans might not be able to keep their current doctor without paying extra.
Many plans offered on Obamacare’s exchanges have very limited provider networks.
3. “In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.”
Premiums for people purchasing coverage in the individual market have significantly increased in a majority of states.
Family premiums for those with employer-based coverage have increased by an average of $2,976 from 2009 to 2013.
