Obama: ‘Many folks’ will lose their doctors under Obamacare

President Obama now says that his health law will lead the average person to switch doctors.
For the average person, Obama conceded in an interview with WebMD, many folks who dont have health insurance initially, theyre going to have to make some choices. And they might end up having to switch doctors, in part because theyre saving money.
Obamas admission stands in stark contrast to his many assurances that Obamacare would let people keep their doctors if they like them. A 2009 White House document called Health Insurance Reform Reality Check insists, If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
And in a 2009 speech to the American Medical Association, Obama made this pledge: [N]o matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what. My view is that health care reform should be guided by a simple principle: fix whats broken and build on what works.
Politifact already considers Obamas promise that Americans could keep their preferred health plans under Obamacare to be the Lie of the Year.

Could we possibly expect anyone from the "news" media to ask him why he previously said, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor"?
Why are you all laughing?.........

I guess faced with the prospect of losing the Senate is making Obama a little less forked tongue....

By now Obumba has to know that we high information voters know that he is a chronic liar. At this point I can only consider him just another freeloader occupying a country he despises, breathing our precious air but expelling pollution, living free in a beautiful home "that we the people own, raping our assets and so much more. I've had it with talk of impeachment, either do it or shut the hell up. He a parasite that will have to live with his own embarrassing legacy. I look so forward to reading in the news, "Grampa why do they call you the worst, commie bum that ever occupied the White House"? Nixon can now walk with his head high knowing Barack took him of the hook.

Somewhere in the country is the worst doctor in the U.S. - and he or she is about to get way more business.
