2019 Jim McGovern, Meet 2013 Barack Obama

In 2013, President Barack Obama was awarded with the “Lie of the Year” after he told the country that under Obamacare, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”

Now, during the Rules Committee hearing on single-payer health care, Chairman Jim McGovern just made a similarly false proclamation:

“People aren’t gonna lose their health care with Medicare for All.”

This is a promise he simply can’t keep under Rep. Jayapal’s proposed Medicare for All bill. Just take it from Senators Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders, who both admitted that private health insurance would be abolished in a single-payer system.

Bottom line: More than 150 million Americans are covered by private insurance plans, and House Democrats are spreading blatant falsehoods as they embrace socialism and try to put government in charge of everyone’s health care.
