Happy Anniversary: Video Highlights Democrats’ Obamacare Lies One Year After The Disastrous Rollout

If you like your plan, you can't keep it

BY:

One year after the debut of healthcare.gov, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) released a video to remind voters of the most enduring lie circulated by President Obama and Senate Democrats about Obamacare: "If you like your plan, you can keep it."

Fact-checking website Politifact dubbed the statement 2013's "lie of the year" after employers were forced to change or cancel their employees' plans to comply with Obamacare.

In the video, Democratic Senators Mark Pryor, Kay Hagan, Mary Landrieu, Jeff Merkley, Mark Begich, and Mark Udall are shown repeating the lie, interspersed with testimonies from President Obama himself, followed by media coverage of the epic collapse of healthcare.gov after its October 2012 rollout.

The NRSC ended the advertisement with a strong message: "Democrats lied about it then, and they're still lying about it now."

"Over the past six years, Barack Obama and Washington Democrats have proven that they not only don't have the right solutions to get America growing again, but they lack the credibility to be trusted to keep their promises," NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen told The Hill.

A poll released in August 2014 showed a majority of Americans–53 percent–reported having an unfavorable view of Obamacare.
