Next Obamacare Broken Promise – “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

According to TIME magazine, the next Obamacare broken promise is

“No matter how we reform health care,” Obama said in 2009, “we will keep this promise: if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period.”

Take note that he once again used “Period.” as in nothing more to say.

This is an even bigger deal than:

“If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. Period.”

As TIME noted regarding the promise that people will be able to keep their doctors:

It’s not that simple. In order to participate in health-insurance exchanges, insurers needed to find a way to tamp down the high costs of premiums. As a result, many will narrow their networks, shrinking the range of doctors that are available to patients under their plan, experts say.

Just wait until the fury over this erupts when people are forced to give up their doctors.  Insurance is a product, an intangible thing whereas people tend to have long-lasting relationships with their doctors who they have come to trust with their lives and their health.
