“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan…” You’ve heard it again and again. President Obama has uttered the phrase or some variation over 30 times since 2008.
However, despite the repetitive rhetoric, Barack Obama is NOT the original source of this particular load of crap. Another prominent Democrat is responsible for the deception–
Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In addition to outlining the basic tenets of her Healthcare Plan, Senator Clinton described the lessons learned from the failed 1993-94 Clinton Healthcare initiative.

In September 2007, Sen. Hillary Clinton unveiled a new Presidential campaign ad stating that she “has a health care plan that let’s you keep your coverage if you like it.”

The ad coincided with the release of Clinton’s “American Health Choices Plan,” which detailed her program for universal healthcare if elected President in 2008.
The 12-page Plan stated, not once, but EIGHT TIMES that Americans would be able to keep their existing health care coverage if they chose to:

4. “Americans can keep their existing coverage or access the same menu of quality
private insurance options that their Members of Congress receive through a new

5. “ Americans who are satisfied with the coverage they have today can keep it, while
benefiting from lower premiums and higher quality.”
6. “The American Health Choices Plan preserves existing health insurance and
offers new choices to those with insurance…”
7. The FIRST item under the “Detailed Plan” is labeled “Keep Current Health Care
“Coverage” and states that: “Americans who are satisfied with the coverage they have today can keep it. Nothing would interfere with their insurance or their relationship with their healthcare provider. The only significant change they will see will be lower costs and higher quality health care…”
