From The Washington Examiner:
SEN. JEFF MERKLEY (D-Oreg.): “[E]nsuring that those who like their insurance get to keep it” “The HELP Committee bill sets forward a historic plan that will, for the first time in American history, give every American access to affordable health coverage, reduce costs, and increase choice, while ensuring that those who like their insurance get to keep it.” (Sen. Merkley, Press Release, 7/15/09)
Now to be fair, Merkley was talking about the Senate's HELP Committee Bill. However I read that monster bill in its entirety and, believe it or not, it was even worse than the ObamaCare law that we got jammed down our throats. Not only was it going to take away your health insurance, it was a Trojan Horse for a single-payer system to be introduced-- so there was absolutely no way anyone was going to keep their current health insurance under what the bill.
So, even in that context, Sen. Merkley is among the lying liars that lie to our faces again.
