Explaining it to people? If they had done that, the legislation would never have passed because most people would have demanded that heads roll first. Instead they completely lied about what the legislation would do and what people would expect. 1. Like your plan? You can keep your plan. 2. Like your doctor? You can keep your doctor. 3. Premiums will go down. 4. Premiums will go down at an average of $2,500. 5. Deductibles will go down. 6. The healthcare.gov website will work. 7. The healthcare.gov website will be secure. 8. Emergency room visits will go down. 9. The 23 healthcare cooperatives will be the end-all, save-all, be-all. All lies. HUGE lies.
