Selling Obamacare to the American people relied on President Obama’s ability to convince Americans that “If they liked their Doctor, they could keep their doctor.” And Barack Obama sold this line over and over again.
But today we learned the painful truth via CBS News White House corespondent Mark Knoller:
Pres Obama concedes ObamaCare enrollees “might have to switch doctors,” but he says the trade-off is they’re “gonna save money.”

President Obama first broke the news in an interview with WebMD.
The Washington Free Beacon Reports:
“For the average person, many folks who don’t have health insurance initially, they’re going to have to make some choices.” “They might end up having to switch doctors, in part because they’re saving money. But that’s true if your employer suddenly decides we think this network’s going to give a better deal.”
Today, just 38% of Americans support Obamacare, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls. But with this latest round of bad news, expect that number to dive even lower.
