Obamacare Website No Longer States 'You Can Keep Your Doctor'

"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was President Barack Obama's signature catchphrase he used to sell the Affordable Care Act to the American people. Now Obamacare's flagship website,, no longer even addresses the issue, reports The Weekly Standard.

The original website contained a section entitled "Can I keep my own doctor?", later revised to "How to keep your doctor."

The closest the website comes to mentioning the president's "keep your doctor" commitment is, "To be certain your doctor is included in your plan's network, contact the plan or provider for the most up-to-date information."

Earlier this year, the White House also removed the "Reality Check" from its own website where "Linda Douglass of the White House Office of Health Reform debunks the myth that reform will force you out of your current insurance plan or force you to change doctors.

But, hey, Paul Krugman's measure of Obamacare success is how many people signed up for it, not what kind of service they get.
