President Obama promised over and over and over and over again that his health-care reform law, aka Obamacare, would allow individuals to keep their doctors and their insurance plans. That wasn’t true.

He also repeatedly promised that health insurance premiums would become more affordable, hence the law’s official title, the “Affordable Care Act.” That wasn’t true, either.

Health-care premiums are expected to rise by an average of 22 percent across the country in 2017. It’s so bad even the nerds at Vox dot com have given up trying to defend the law.

Donald Trump also has an opinion.
