John Wilhelm, chairman of Unite Here Health, representing 260,000 union workers, recently told the Wall Street Journal, that Obama once said if you liked your healthcare, you could keep it. Of course, keeping your health care plan, like many Obama-care promises, has turned out to be demonstrably untrue.
Mitt Romney’s senior advisor rejected the contention by Democrats that costs for seniors on Medicare will escalate under the plan proposed by vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan. Then Chris Wallace of “Fox News Sunday,” told Ed Gillespie the Congressional Budget Office estimated Medicare costs could increase by $6,400.
