It was a promise made by President Barack Obama that first surfaced in the selling of his sweeping health care initiative and eventually required a public apology and new rules to fix after the measure became law.
"If you like the plan you have, you can keep it. If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too," Obama promised in a 2009 weekly address and numerous other times throughout his first term.
The declaration underwent its first revision in early November 2013.
"If you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really like that plan, what we said was you could keep it if it hasn't changed since the law was passed," Obama said in a speech to supporters of the Affordable Care Act.

Along with if you like your 40 hr a week job you can keep your 40 hr a week job!
the repubs should use this as a sledge-hammer
The Democrat/Liberals are the apotheosis of the lie. Obama is their greatest triumph as not only does he tell lies as Bill Clinton did, but his very personage is a lie. Not a natural born citizen or a bastard child of a Communist party functionary? Is he the super genius that the llib/commies make him out to be or just a fraud with bad grades? Did he get into Harvard because of his brilliance or did he get in because of a 20 million grant from Saudi Arabia? The list is endless.
If you like your president you can keep your president........WON’T
Can’t keep your doctor.
Can’t keep your insurance.
“Affordable Care” isn’t affordable.
Millions will sign up and be grateful... they didn’t sign up and aren’t grateful.
It was all a lie, every little bit.
Yeah, the same regime that keeps telling us they’ve added jobs to the economy. That their NSA aren’t spying for political reasons and that there isn’t a smidgeon of corruption in the IRS targeting scandal.
They must really think everyone is as stupid and deluded as they are. I’d rather have Jimmy Carter in charge than these idiots and anyone who can top Carter in incompetence is quite amazing.
Every time I heard this lie of keeping dr or ins. I thought WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TO TELL ME WHAT I CAN AND CAN’T KEEP YOU POS !!!!!!
(with all due respect to excrement)
