Seriously, this is the big news of the day? Obama lied about you being able to keep your plan. Yeah – who didn’t know that?
While admitting that Obama lied, MSNBC host tells Hugh Hewitt, it was one of those “political lies”. Deliberate, but normal. The kind that all politicians use.
I would say that’s true, but Obama lies so much that there isn’t a thing that comes out of his mouth that you can believe. So when he says he didn’t know about the spying, but someone else says he did, I tend to believe the someone else.
And when he says he’s weighing ending spying on all allies, I tend to imagine him in a room with a sign on the door saying
Quiet Please, meeting in Progress concerning spying
while when you crack the door open and get a peek, you see him with a party hat on along with his buddies playing poker.
Because, seriously….is the US going to quit spying? Of course not. doh
So when he says, you’ll be able to keep your policy if you like it, did you seriously believe him? No, of course not. So when it happens and these are the responses you get:
FACT: Nothing in #Obamacare forces people out of their health plans. No change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans.

And insurance companies are FORCED by law to change their existing plans do you get mad, or do you roll your eyes?
Or when another response entails putting yourself on government assistance:
.…many of can expect a subsidy. Do you realize how awful this is? Basically they are acknowledging that millions of people who paid for their own health care in the past will now be getting taxpayer money. Essentially, a huge and unnecessary increase in government dependency.
Do you get mad or try to figure out a way around the system?
I am not shocked that Obama is a liar. I have been in shock for years that people put him in office and then back again. I am shocked that doofus’s on line state things like “I thought Obamacare would be good but I didn’t know I’d be paying for it” can’t read as I figured at least the middle class would pay attention.
That’s the shocking thing. So here it is again people. Read slowly and especially the part in bold. It’s highlighted because it’s true.
[ps – I actually realize that no self respecting Obama voter would visit this website, so apologies to all my readers as I don’t mean you.}
This [people losing their current coverage] is a problem of a different order than the travails of healthcare.gov. The Web site will presumably get fixed; its failures are a bug, not a feature. Throwing people off old plans, in contrast, is central to ObamaCare’s remaking of American health insurance.
Carney justified the cancellations as the shedding of “substandard” policies, by which he means policies that are more affordable and less comprehensive than allowed under the law.
Many of the people who found that those policies suited them will now be forced to buy different, more expensive policies. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) is planning to offer legislation grandfathering those plans so people can really keep them. His bill would force Democrats to choose between defending the law and standing by Obama’s frequently repeated promise. They will, of course, choose the law.
The line about how “Americans must have the freedom to keep whatever doctor and health-care plan they have” isn’t operative, and never was. Welcome to ObamaCare.
And by the way – for the rest of the world – don’t bother listening to him as he is a lying sack and will look you in the eye and feed you bull. Hold fast and know that if we continue to vote in this sort of leadership that you had better get yourselves stronger.
UPDATE: Favorite column on this subject to date! With this gem:
Indeed, what is so infuriating to many of us is that is that now that it’s the law of the land, Obamacare supporters act as if all of the lies were no big deal and no serious person believed them anyway. But as anyone can tell you, if Obama had been honest about the trade-offs in his signature piece of legislation, it would never have become his signature piece of legislation. So please, don’t tell me the lies don’t matter
Kind of like his re-election!! If people knew what really happened in Benghazi….if people knew what IRS was up to…..if people knew…….
