    Something about keeping your doctor?? I know it's racists and Bush's fault..

    President Barack Obama famously promised, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” He later got even more specific.

    “If you are among the hundreds of millions of Americans who already have health insurance through your job, or Medicare, or Medicaid, or the VA, nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have,” Obama said.

    But as Obamacare’s rollout approaches, we have learned this is not true. Here are the ten states where consumers may like their health care plans, but they won’t be able to keep them.

    1) California:

    2) Missouri:

    3) Connecticut:

    4) Maryland:

    5) South Carolina:

    6) New York:

    7) New Jersey:

    8) Iowa:

    9) Wisconsin:

    10) Georgia:

    This cannot be true! I saw Obama speaking at a college the other day and he said that people can keep their existing insurance and prices will go down. He also said that the Repulicans are just trying to scare the American people.

    He's worried about it, otherwise you wouldn't see the non stop BS campaign parade around the country.

    58,000 is much less than the 54% who expect to lose their coverage. Why such a large difference between expectations and reality?

    List of hospitals in Missouri

    Rough estimate, 170ish hospitals in Missouri. When I lived in Gainesville my health insurance wouldn't let me go to North Florida, only Shands or Alachua General, did I not have health coverage?

    We are only to the second point on the list, and they have already gotten to the examples that don't support their headline?

    A recent report discovered that, should Mitt Romney earn the presidential election, American households might pay twice as much for healthcare as they would under the Obama Administration's Affordable Care Act.
