Do you remember hearing Obama say, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, period.”?
Well, you might remember it, but our fearless leader certainly doesn’t.
It’s a good thing that video exists of him saying it at least 29 times!
Obama is now backpedaling and saying that he had added a caveat. “What we said was you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed.” Curiously, no video exists of him saying this.
He expanded on his lie in a speech to about 200 people at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, D.C. yesterday.
“If we had allowed these old plans [to continue]… then we would have broken an even more important promise — making sure that Americans gain access to health care that doesn’t leave them one illness away from financial ruin,” he announced.
“So the bottom line is, is that we are making the insurance market better for everybody,” he declared, prompting loud applause by supporters eager to ignore his three years of fraudulent statements.
Obama’s higher promise is now causing the cancellation of insurance policies chosen by at least 3.5 million Americans. (source)
So basically, here is the scoop on the Obamacare rollout:
- Obama lied, but that’s okay. (see above)
- Employers are firing people and cutting hours to stay within the thresholds required by Obamacare.
- Obama had no idea that the website was FUBAR-ed.
- It’s so messed up they had to put an extension in place for the fines.
- 3.5 million Americans have had their policies cancelled due to Obamacare and the number may reach 16 million cancellations.
- Insurance rates for those who can actually keep their policies are skyrocketing, in some instances even quadrupling.
As more Americans lose jobs, health coverage, and a huge chunk of their income, Obama continues to lie, twist, and justify.
When do we demand integrity in the highest office in the land?
[MR: Liar, liar, pants on fire. This is what happens when you sign the Bill into law BEFORE you can read it. This mean you Congress – EVERY member of the House and Senate from both parties. I think you might have done your “due diligence” and actually read the Bill – if all of YOU weren’t exempted from it. What a disgrace. The entire lot of these dullards, thieves and scoundrels should be REPLACED. EVERY law enacted in this country should apply to EVERYBODY, including the PRESIDENT and ALL MEMBERS OF THE GOVERNMENT. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Everyone should be insured and have access to decent healthcare but this is not the way to do it. Remove all waste, corruption, gouging and overbilling by the insurance companies, Big Pharma, hospitals, doctors, et. al. and everyone would be able to have decent healthcare at reasonable prices and those who are truly indigent would be able to get the medical attention they need.]
