If You Like Your Doctor, You Can Keep Your Doctor?

It is already patently obvious the promise of keeping your insurance plan if you like your insurance plan is untrue for millions of Americans. One of the other foundational promises of the Affordable Care Act is, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor." Critics have contended for years that isn't true either. In response supporters of the law have branded the critics  extremists, racists, deniers, lunatics, and heartless neanderthals whose only goal in life was keeping poor people from receiving medical care. Oy.

From the NY Post.
New York doctors are treating ObamaCare like the plague, a new survey reveals.
A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan.
Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become ObamaCare providers.
Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges.
Apologists of the "If you like your insurance you can keep your insurance" broken promise claim the policies being cancelled are inadequate. Will they make the same claims about doctors?
