Well, in all fairness, nobody ever promised health care. ObamaCare is merely health care insurance coverage, with no promises of treatment.

From the link:

"The disabled mother of two says she's out of medication for an autoimmune disease, she's run out of antibiotics for a painful internal infection, and the health plan she's paid for through the Affordable Care Act keeps sending her to doctors who say they can't treat her because they won't take her insurance."

Obamacare is like Medicaid.

"For patients, he made a sweeping pledge that “no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what. My view is that health care reform should be guided by a simple principle: fix what’s broken and build on what works.”

-- Barack Obama, 2009

Of course, we all know now what a "promise" from Obama is worth. But we took him for his word then.

Anyone who takes a politician at their word deserves the government they get.

I didn't. I knew this was going to be a disaster. It's been pretty clear since the first details about the bill (at the time) started to emerge, but nobody wanted to hear it, and a lot of those people STILL try to defend the monstrosity. It's insane.
