Many Kentuckians have found out the hard way in recent weeks that the president’s repeated Obamacare promise, “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” has been broken. But now we are learning the truth about another of the president’s broken promises: his claim that “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor” is proving false as well.
As I travel across Kentucky, I hear from many constituents who are seeing premiums increase along with higher co-pays and higher deductibles as a result of Obamacare. Adding insult to injury, these constituents are discovering that despite these higher costs, they have no guarantee that they will be able to continue using the hospital of their

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement today regarding the President’s belated response to the millions who’ve lost their health plans as a result of Obamacare:
“President Obama’s announcement doesn’t even come close to fixing the problems that so many Americans are facing right now as a result of cancelled health care plans and skyrocketing premiums. But, it does represent the clearest acknowledgment yet that his oft-repeated pledge ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it’ was false all along. What makes this admission even worse is the fact that it was prompted not by the heartbreaking stories of millions of Americans, but by the private pleadings of a handful of endangered Democrats. Americans are becoming increasingly aware of the fact Obamacare is broken beyond repair. The only ‘fix’ is full repeal followed by step-by-step, patient-centered reforms that drive down costs and that Americans actually want.”
