WASHINGTON — Republicans have for years pummeled the Affordable Care Act by arguing that it has limited people’s choice of doctors. President Trump and his deputies have deployed that line in the last few weeks as they push to overhaul the law.
“They had their doctor, they had their plan,” Trump told a group of conservatives gathered near the nation’s capital late last month. “You can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Over and over and over again, you heard it.”
