In an interview on Fox News on Thursday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) explained that “public option is simply a slow roll to Medicare for all,” and “does eventually get rid of your private insurance by undercutting all private insurance.”

“[Biden will] say that he’s going to protect your private insurance, but let’s not forget, he was part of the Obama administration who lied to us about keeping your doctor.” Crenshaw said, referencing the Obama-Biden administration’s infamous 2013 PolitiFact lie of the year that “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.”

“You think they’re telling us the truth about keeping your private insurance?” Crenshaw added. “The public option is simply a slow roll to Medicare for all, if you look at the economics of it, there’s really no other way out of it. It does eventually get rid of your private insurance by undercutting all private insurance.”

PolitiFact wrote in 2013, “PolitiFact has named ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,’ the Lie of the Year for 2013. Readers in a separate online poll overwhelmingly agreed with the choice.”
