Ezekiel Emanuel is often referred to as an “architect” of Obamacare, and now that the building he helped design is collapsing, Emanuel’s trying to convince everybody that a pile of rubble is exactly what was promised.

Via Mediaite:

Wallace then grilled Emanuel on President Barack Obama’s pledge that “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

“He didn’t say you can have unlimited choice!” Emanuel protested. “If you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. This is a matter of choice. We know in all sorts of places, you pay more for a wider range of choices, or a wider range of benefits. People are going to have a choice as to whether they want to pay a certain amount for a selective network, or pay more for a broader network.”

“Which means your premium may go up,” Wallace said.

“No one guaranteed you that your premium wouldn’t increase.”

“The president guaranteed me that I could keep my doctor,” Wallace said.

“And if you want to, you can pay for it,” Emanuel responded. “Choice is something we all understand. And we all understand that for more choice, more benefits, we all have to pay more.”

Video here if you can stand it.

Do you recall the promise being “you can keep your doctor if you’re willing to pay extra”? Me neither:
