President Obama had promised the year before the law was passed, and in the run-up to his reelection, that that wouldn’t be the case.
“If you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” Obama said in 2009.
On Wednesday, Johnson introduced the “If You Like Your Healthcare, You Can Keep It” Act so Americans whose insurance may be dropped by ObamaCare can keep it.
“So we’re actually going to put in a true grandfather plan that says if you have a health plan today, and you like it, you can actually keep that plan,” he said.
