In an interview with WebMD, President Obama admitted that yet another of the promises used to sell Obamacare to the American public turns out to be a lie.
The president made a stunning admission today during his widely-anticipated interview with WebMD — namely, some Americans might have to switch doctors under the “Affordable” Care Act.
From the interview, Obama says:
“For the average person, many folks who don’t have health insurance initially, they’re going to have to make some choices. And they might end up having to switch doctors, in part because they’re saving money.”
This, of course, is in stark contrast to the unequivocal promise Obama made prior to the Unaffordable Care Act’s passage: “First, no matter what you’ve heard, if you like your doctor — or health care plan — you can keep it.”
In related Obamacare news, the individual mandate was delayed for many “hardship” cases until 2016. One example of such hardship is if your policy was cancelled because it didn’t conform to Obamacare’s standards, and that you deem other insurance options to be unaffordable. In other words, you can be exempted from the Obamacare mandate due to a hardship created by Obamacare.
It’s been nearly impossible to track all of the delays and exemptions to this horrible law, it has got to be embarrassing for the administration to continue to change key elements of the law by whim on an ad hoc basis. It’s a complete Keystone Cops operation. But more importantly, the massive uncertainty being created throws millions of people’s attempts to plan and arrange their lives into chaos, and creates a terrible climate for entrepreneurs to attempt to grow the economy.
