Jake Tapper points out that Democrats said people could keep their doctors. He also pointed to skyrocketing health insurance premiums as a broken promise by Democrats.
CNN’s Jake Tapper noted how House Democrats repeatedly lied to the American people in their effort to pass Obamacare. Tapper made the comments in an interview with former Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) following the successful repeal of Obamacare in the House on Thursday.
“The way that [Obamacare] was sold to the American people was in many ways mendacious,” Tapper told Israel.
Tapper then proceeded to point out all the lies that Democrats told the American people.
“They were told if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, if you like you plan you can keep your plan. That’s not true.”
Tapper then mentioned to Israel that a majority of health insurance providers have already pulled out of the Obamacare exchanges, meaning that Americans have fewer options now than before the law.
“Do you think the Democrats in the way they sold this bill to the public really undermined their own credibility on the issue of health care?” Tapper asked Israel.
“Well, Jake look. Let’s stipulate that Obamacare is far from perfect, that there was some significant flaws in its execution, including a website that went down,” Israel began telling Tapper.
Tapper seemed to laugh at this comment, telling Israel he had forgotten about the debacle that was HealthCare.gov.
