Everybody Remembers The Promise

OBAMA PROMISE: “If you have health insurance and you like it, and you have a doctor that you like, then you can keep it. Period. And I won’t sign a bill that somehow would make it tougher for people to keep their health insurance. … We certainly would not be signing a bill that somehow prevented somebody from getting, from keeping insurance that they’ve already got or allow private insurers to sign up new folks if they’re providing good service.” (President Obama, Conference Call With Liberal Bloggers, 7/20/09)

  • OBAMA: “If you like your current plan, you will be able to keep it. Let me repeat that: if you like your plan, you'll be able to keep it.” (President Obama, 7/21/09)
  • OBAMA: “… nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have. Let me repeat this: nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have.” (President Obama, Remarks To A Joint Session Of Congress (As Prepared), 9/9/09)

SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “In fact, one of our core principles is that if you like the health care you have, you can keep it.” (Sen. Reid, Congressional Record, S.8642, 8/3/09)
