In June 2009, Obama said. "If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what." washingtonexaminer.com/politics/2011/08/plan-keep-your-health-plan-dont-count-it And why is this a MYTH??? Obama has said in 2003: I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. pnhp.org/news/2008/june/barack_obama_on_sing.php - If he is a proponent (in favor) of single payer .. that means the destruction of private health insurance, doesn't it? FACT is Obama wants the $100 billion a year in Federal/State/Local tax payers destroyed as well as YOUR local property taxes to increase due to their destruction!
