The Party: Democratic
For years, President Obama promised millions of Americans with health insurance that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan” under his health care overhaul. He wasn’t the only one, either.
Back in 2009, several top congressional Democrats echoed the president’s assurances that those who were happy with their plans would be able to keep them.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the health care overhaul efforts“means making sure you can keep your family’s doctor or keep your health care plan if you like it.”
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin told the happily insured ”we are going to put in any legislation considered by the House and Senate the protection that you, as an individual, keep the health insurance you have, if that is what you want.”
And current Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray also said: ”If you like what you have today, that will be what you have when this legislation is passed.”

The primary is May 6 and the runoff will be on June 14. For the purpose of disclosure, I am supporting Heather Grant for the nomination. As a Nurse Practitioner, I feel she has the understanding of the needs of the people at large as it relates to health care, and other middle class issues we face today.
