Roy: Experts Knew Obama’s Promise ‘Was a Lie’

by NRO Staff

Avik Roy sat down with Megyn Kelly to share his latest piece over at Forbes that found that more than half of employer-based health-care plans will be deemed illegal next year because they will no longer be Obamacare compliant. This signals the latest blow to President Obama’s controversial promise that people could keep their health-care plans, which Roy said experts knew wasn’t true to begin with.

“Everyone in the health-policy community left, right, or center knew this was a lie,” he said on Fox News on Thursday night. Unfortunately, at the time, critics of the law could only offer theoretical arguments, not real-world examples.

“The difference now is that people are getting cancellation notices — journalists can go and interview the people getting the cancellation notices,” he said.
