How many times has President Obama lied to the American people about being able to keep their health insurance if they like it? A LOT…just check out the video above.
Any rational person can now understand, especially as they receive their health insurance cancellation in the mail, that Obama’s repeated promise was a lie. He had to lie to get you to want ObamaCare. If he told the real truth about the inner workings of the new health care law, he probably would have been voted out of office.
Both he and Kathleen Sebelius, along with the mouthpiece for the administration Jay Carney are now denying ever telling an un-truth. They will spend the next weeks and months, never wavering, and continue to parse words and hope to wiggle out of the lie. Who knows?…eventually, they may even pull a Clinton and say, “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘like’ is” and “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘plan’ is.
That is the road they are going down even though Obama clearly lied. He mislead all Americans into believing they had the option of keeping their current healthcare plan if they were happy with it.
11/13/2013 Update: Former President Bill Clinton was in the news yesterday saying that he believes Obama should keep his word and allow people to keep their current plans if they want to. Some influential Democrats are now crafting a change in the Affordable Care Act that would allow this to happen and President Obama has said he agrees. HOWEVER, this is not something that you can simply push a button and everything will go back to the way it was. The insurance companies have spent millions of dollars changing plans and crafting new ones to adhere to the ACA and it may be impossible to go back, especially in a short time period of a several months.
