Even Alan Colmes is having trouble defending this one. In an interview with WebMD, President Obama has finally admitted that his central Obamacare promises will be broken.

The president promised numerous times that “If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” About six million Americans have lost their healthcare because of Obamacare’s mandates, before the employer mandate has even kicked in. Once that happens, tens of millions more may lose their healthcare.

Now, the president has admitted that the doctor part of the promise is false, too.

“For the average person, many folks who don’t have health insurance initially, they’re going to have to make some choices,” Obama said during the wide-rangingĀ interview with WebMD‘s healthcare reform expert Lisa Zamosky. “And they might end up having to switch doctors, in part, because they’re saving money.”

That’s the most rose-colored, positive spin the president could put on this. Americans are more likely to lose their doctor not because they’re switching to save money, but because Obamacare has driven their doctor into retirement, or because Obamacare’s mandates have forced provider networks to shrink.

Anyone who has a chronic condition, nor has a family member with same, knows that you don't change doctors to save money. When you find a doctor who can take care of your situation, and knows you and will work with you, you will do anything to keep that doctor.

Commander Zero and Baghdad Bob Sebelius are going to kill real Americans through their persistence in enforcing this pile of manure legislation.
