We knew this was coming—because it’s been happening to Americans for awhile. The president finally admitted that you can’t necessarily keep your doctor under Obamacare.
In an interview with WebMD (Check the “Access to Care” portion at 1:00 in), he said:
For the average person, many folks who don’t have health insurance initially, they’re going to have to make some choices. And they might end up having to switch doctors, in part because they’re saving money.
When he was first pitching Obamacare, President Obama’s promise that you could keep your doctor went hand in hand with “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it”—which PolitiFact voted 2013’s “Lie of the Year.”
Watch the president saying you’ll be able to keep your plan and your doctor:

I know we have a merciful God, so please, please listen to our pleas and get us that Republican House and Senate and Obama out of the WH.
I would say the report is about right, you cannot keep your own doctor if he is not with Obama Care, I could not, in the NHS see a private Doctor and be treated by the NHS, but I could see a NHS Doctor, on a Private basis if I paid and still be treated by the NHS,
Ray, as we both know, when a country takes on a healthcare program to cover everyone, the quality of care goes down, the choices dwindle, and when you have a serious health situation like you just experienced, sub-standard care is like a slap in the face. The problem is that there aren't enough people who actually pay into the healthcare system. Taxpayers are paying for those who are poor, illegal immigrants, the slackards who simply are milking the system and not working, well, we all get the picture.
The young Americans aren't buying into Obamacare because they know a ponzi scheme when they see one. They aren't stepping up to the plate for Obama by paying $400 a month for healthcare that they probably won't tap into for 20 years and if they are watching what is happening to their parents as they age...they get the picture....that the healthcare benefits aren't what they should be to keep them alive.
Private insurance in our country always needed to be regulated but it should've been done in such a way that they were rewarded for lower premiums, no evidence of insurability required and for not dropping coverage due to high claim experience. It would've been easy...a win/win....for the insurance companies in our country, the doctors, hospitals and patients. The taxpayers in our country FUND nearly $100 billion a year in fraud and abuse so just imagine if we cleaned that up and directed that money to the insurance companies to keep rates low. Everyone involved in healthcare needs to make money and universal healthcare simply lowers the standards....at a great cost to quality of life for the elderly.
