Obama: Actually you may not get to keep your insurance and your doctor after all

The president has repeatedly stated that if you like your doctor and you like your insurance plan, you will be able to keep it.

Today he clarified.

When asked by Jake Tapper how he can keep that promise if employers opt to offer a public plan to its employees, Obama replied:

“When I say if you have your plan and you like it,…or you have a doctor and you like your doctor, that you don’t have to change plans, what I’m saying is the government is not going to make you change plans under health reform,”

So in other words, if your employer opts for a public plan (and why wouldn’t they if it is cheaper?)  all bets are off.

    • If a public option is passed (God help us) then all members of Congress and all federal employees should be required to enroll.

      • That is a good idea but it would never happen. Congress is an elitist institution which thinks that it is entitled to things that are better then the rest of us peons.
