If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor … NOT!!!
Once again we are witness to Barack Obama’s lie of Obamacare that, “If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” Even US Senators are losing their doctors. Thanks to Obamacare, US Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) loses his cancer doctor. This morning on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,’ Coburn told Joe Scarborough that his health insurance plan purchased via Obamacare doesn’t cover his oncologist. Coburn is paying for his specialist’s care out of pocket. However, how many Americans would be able to do so? Wasn’t Obamacare supposed to prevent people from going bankrupt because of a major illness? Just another Obama lie to We the People.
Cancer-stricken Sen. Tom Coburn revealed Tuesday that his health insurance under Obamacare doesn’t cover his oncologist, but said he still is receiving excellent care.
“I’m doing well from a health standpoint, got great docs,” Coburn said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday when asked about his health. “Fortunately — even though my new coverage won’t cover my specialist — I’m going to have great care, and I have a great prognosis.”
The Oklahoma Republican’s spokesman confirmed to POLITICO that since the senator enrolled in his health insurance plan under Obamacare, his coverage has been reduced and he lost coverage for his cancer specialist. Coburn will continue to pay out of pocket and see his oncologist, his office said.
