"We will keep this promise to the American people. 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."
-- Barack Obama, June 15, 2009
Promise broken. Period.
I love my current plan. But it won't exist on January 1. Matt Walsh requested stories from his listeners about their experiences. He's published a few of them on his blog. Keep in mind that "a few" is a relative term. He didn't publish mine, because I didn't send it in. Don't read the blog unless you want to hear innumerable anecdotes from people who also had to give up their plans. Some of the "pain" is self-inflicted, but most of it isn't. Most of it is from people who have to give up plans that they like because that unqualified sales pitch was a lie.
