A lot of people in the media are fixated on Obama’s lie – repeated at least thirty-six times on camera! – that:
“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”
Every single one of the millions of Americans who lost their health coverage because of your evil health care takeover ought to be able to give you a good hard kick in the ass and leave you with your tail bone permanently sticking out of your ear. Period. And no one should be able to take that tail bone away from there. No matter what.
Of course the above link takes you to a LIBERAL Washington Post fact check that gives Obama the maximum number of Pinocchio (i.e., “LIAR”) points. But WaPo also has this gem compiling an assemblage of Obama in flat-out liar-liar-pants-on-fire mode.
For the official record, Republicans knew that Obama was a liar on this promise more than three years ago:
In 2010, Republican Senator Mike Enzi (WY) said on the Senate floor that the Obama administration had broken its promise that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”
Sen. Enzi also correctly predicted that employers will be less likely to hire workers and may even lay off employees. He was accused of fear-mongering by his Democratic counterparts back then.
Tonight on The Kelly File, the senator told Megyn Kelly, “I couldn’t believe what some of my colleagues were saying even though the federal register […] predicted millions were going to lose their insurance.”
He criticized President Obama for making changes to the law, referring to the delay of the employer mandate, while telling Republicans that the law can’t be changed.
Sen. Enzi wrote a bill that would have guaranteed that people could keep their health plans according to Obama’s promise. EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRAT – including Hillary Clinton and especially including the fifteen Democrats who are now panicking about their precious re-elections – voted against it. Which is to say they voted to screw America twice by voting for ObamaCare to begin with and then voting for the hell of uninsuring the insured it would cause that is coming to pass right now. Because they don’t give a flying DAMN about the American people.
Now, here’s the thing: the fecal matter is smacking the rotary oscillator now as 5 million independently insured Americans lose their health care with a total of 15 million expected to lose their similar coverage. Those people are losing their coverage that they were happy with even as they are unable to buy coverage because Obama is so criminally incompetent that he took three years to piss away $634 million to build a website that doesn’t work as well as any one of about a million porn sites. That ought to tell you why Obama decided to suspend his law for employer-based health plans. But when that kicks in next year, you will see 129 million Americans have their health plans either cancelled or cost substantially more (while many of them will get substantially less in benefits).
That’s when things will really start hitting the fan.
It only took the mainstream media five years to start being accountable to the truth. You know, whereas the same media would have already been blasting a Republican president before he took his oath of office.
But that Obama lie is just the tip of the Obama lie iceberg.
How about this Obama lie:
Obama promised that his socialist takeover of health care would “bend the cost curve down,” but in actual FACT it will bend it UP with an arc of a rocket ship blasting into space. Obama said it would lower a family’s cost by $2,500 a year; try raising it by $7,450 a year instead.
Don’t believe me because I disagree with Obama and am therefore “racist”??? Time to smell some reality, you drones.
As I write this, I noted that even the Los Angeles Times is beginning to expose this Satanic lie from Obama:
Obama supporter miffed at botched healthcare rollout: Margaret Davis favors wider access to insurance, but under the Affordable Care Act she’d see her premiums rise 88% for inferior coverage. By Steve Lopez November 12, 2013, 7:58 p.m.
Margaret Davis of West L.A. voted for President Obama and appreciates the ideas behind the Affordable Care Act. She agrees that everyone should have access to healthcare and no one should be denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions.
But here’s the problem:
She knows firsthand, as the new law of the land rolls clumsily into being, that it’s not working out to everyone’s advantage.
“I’m a 55-year-old woman in excellent health and have a catastrophic health plan,” she wrote recently to Obama and California Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. “I am completely happy with my plan. I received notice that the plan is being canceled and that to stay with a “comparable” plan my premiums would increase 88%, or $200 extra per month. To add insult to injury, the plan is INFERIOR to my existing plan.”
If you guessed that she got no response from any of those elected officials, you win a box of cough drops.
But public officials didn’t throw a complete shutout at Davis. She wrote to U.S. Rep. Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles) when she didn’t hear from the others, and one of Bass’ staffers called Davis to say she’ll be looking into the specifics of her case.
“Any time you do a huge policy change like healthcare, there’s going to be all sorts of problems and glitches that need to be worked out,” Bass told me Tuesday from Washington, where she said there were new calls for allowing people to keep the policies they have, as President Obama had repeatedly promised they’d be able to do.
President Clinton has urged such a move, and Feinstein’s office backed the idea Tuesday. She noted in a statement that her office had received 30,832 contacts from Californians, “many of whom are very distressed by cancellations of their insurance policies and who are facing increased out-of-pocket expenses.”
“The Affordable Care Act is a good law, but it’s not perfect,” the Feinstein statement said.
No, not by a longshot, beginning with the federal website debacle and highlighted by Obama’s now-laughable promises of a smooth transition. But Bass worries that the problems will further embolden critics who were determined from the beginning to do a grave dance on healthcare reform.
Hundreds of people attended a town hall conference hosted by Bass on Sunday in West L.A. She said some attendees were in the same situation as Davis and not very happy about it; others were confused by their options. Bass said many were assisted as they enrolled in new plans through the state exchange, Covered California.
“But overall, people were like Margaret,” said Bass, who called Davis on Tuesday to discuss her case. “They really want this to work, and they’re just trying to figure it out.”
Which hasn’t been all that easy for Davis, an accountant and software consultant who couldn’t believe “how botched up” the healthcare.gov website was, among other problems.
And would anyone be shocked if insurance companies were trying to take advantage of all the confusion?
Davis lives with her husband and two teenage sons but chose not to be covered by her husband’s healthcare plan, which would have added $600 per month to the cost. All she wanted from her own plan was the peace of mind that came with knowing she wouldn’t go broke if she were seriously ill or injured.
She paid Kaiser $224 a month with a $5,000 deductible.
Under the new Kaiser plan, her premium would rise to $420.46 a month. The plan carries a lower deductible, of $4,500, after which she would then pay 40% of the cost of care up to a cap of $6,350.
Though Davis appreciates the goal that all policies must meet minimal standards of coverage, she doesn’t anticipate needing either the maternity or mental health care that would be part of her new plan.
“I had a feeling my cost would go up,” said Davis, who makes just enough money to be ineligible for a government subsidy, “but I was floored when I saw that it was an 87.7% increase.”
That massive increase in your health care cost BECAUSE of ObamaCare ought to be a hell of a lot more believable to you now given the fiasco you are seeing unfold right in front of your eyes.
Now, the story of woe of Margaret Davis of West L.A. and tens of millions of other Americans sets us up for yet another massive Obama (and ObamaCare) lie from hell:
BARACK OBAMA: And I can make a firm pledge: under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase – not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.
But let me perfectly clear, because I know you’ll hear the same old claims that rolling back these tax breaks means a massive tax increase on the American people: if your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.
Well, of course, we know that when this law was passed, Obama promised that it wouldn’t be a “tax,” but a “penalty.” But the Supreme Court in its upholding ObamaCare said a “penalty” would be unconstitutional. They let ObamaCare stand by declaring that Barack Hussein Obama was merely a lying weasel who had called a “tax” a “penalty” because a “tax” would have sent his “signature legislative accomplishment” down in flames. And we found that ObamaCare was in fact a “tax,” and it was OBAMA who was the “penalty.”
The simple fact is that Obama promised that if you made less than $100,000 a year or if you were a member of a family making less than $250,000 a year, your taxes wouldn’t go up “one dime.” “Not one single dime.”
When you get your new health insurance premiums, please realize that every single dime of increase in the money your paying right out of your hind end is a TAX to OBAMA.
It is a “Lying Tyrant Tax.” To again quote Obama: Period. End of story.
Now, back in 2009, a cynical, dishonest, lying Obama scolded George Stephanopoulos on national television for suggesting that his ObamaCare mandate was a tax increase. Obama said it “is absolutely not a tax increase.” Reading that now knowing what a total liar Obama was is actually kind of funny now. But this same lying weasel who said his mandate was “absolutely not a tax increase” sent his lying lawyer shills out to the Supreme Court to argue that yes it was too a tax increase (right after arguing that not it wasn’t). And being a pathologically dishonest weasel, Obama had pathologically dishonest weasels do his lawyering for him, too. Samuel Alito pointed out the transparent dishonesty of the Obama regime when he said, “General Verrilli, today you are arguing that the penalty is not a tax. Tomorrow you are going to be back and you will be arguing that the penalty is a tax.”
That’s the kind of president we’ve got. Which is why we’ve got the kind of crisis we’ve got. Because a dishonest man started lying and just wouldn’t stop. Period.
Amazingly, Obama has spent $684 million to promote a $634 million utterly failed and glitch-ridden website that IT people say they could have had running for a tiny fraction of that ridiculous price. And Obama is going to make your health care cheaper???
Has the government proven to you that it can do things better, faster and for less money yet, you morally idiotic Democrat???
I’ve told this story before — I will never forget watching my own mother, as she fought cancer in her final days, worrying about whether her insurer would claim her illness was a preexisting condition so they could wiggle out of paying for her coverage. How many of you have worried about the same thing? (Applause.) A lot of people have gone through this. Many of you have been denied insurance or heard of someone who was denied insurance because they got — had a preexisting condition. That will no longer be allowed with reform. (Applause.) We won’t allow that. (Applause.) We won’t allow that.
Now, please keep in mind that Barack Obama is a man who is so evil and so dishonest that he literally lied about his own mother and demonized the insurance company that kept her alive.
Quote: “Barack Obama’s Mother,” [Stanley Ann] Dunham had an employer-provided health insurance policy that paid her hospital bills directly. Her insurer, Cigna, never denied payment for her cancer treatment.
But that lie is merely an example of a man with a truly wicked and vile personal character. We’re focusing on ObamaCare lies. So let’s consider whether people with pre-existing conditions are getting cancelled or not. And the answer is, contrary to the most documented liar in all human history, yes, people with pre-existing conditions are being cancelled. Eddie Littlefield Sundby begins her Wall Street Journal op-ed with these words:
You Also Can’t Keep Your Doctor: I had great cancer doctors and health insurance. My plan was cancelled. Now I worry how long I’ll live. By Edie Littlefield Sundby Nov. 3, 2013 6:37 p.m. ET
Everyone now is clamoring about Affordable Care Act winners and losers. I am one of the losers.
My grievance is not political; all my energies are directed to enjoying life and staying alive, and I have no time for politics. For almost seven years I have fought and survived stage-4 gallbladder cancer, with a five-year survival rate of less than 2% after diagnosis. I am a determined fighter and extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been canceled effective Dec. 31.
My choice is to get coverage through the government health exchange and lose access to my cancer doctors, or pay much more for insurance outside the exchange (the quotes average 40% to 50% more) for the privilege of starting over with an unfamiliar insurance company and impaired benefits.
Countless hours searching for non-exchange plans have uncovered nothing that compares well with my existing coverage. But the greatest source of frustration is Covered California, the state’s Affordable Care Act health-insurance exchange and, by some reports, one of the best such exchanges in the country. After four weeks of researching plans on the website, talking directly to government exchange counselors, insurance companies and medical providers, my insurance broker and I are as confused as ever. Time is running out and we still don’t have a clue how to best proceed.
That woman who just lost her insurance with her life-threatening pre-existing condition is probably going to die because that’s what tends to happen to stage 4 cancer patients when Obama decides their actually quite excellent health care is somehow “sub-par” and that he should be trusted to do better than her doctors. Barack Obama murdered her with his lies.
Or how about this Obama lie:
“And let me tell you exactly what Obamacare did. Number one, if you’ve got health insurance it doesn’t mean a Government takeover. You keep your own insurance. You keep your own doctor. But it does say insurance companies can’t jerk you around. They can’t impose arbitrary lifetime limits. They have to let you keep your kid on their insurance—your insurance plan until you’re 26 years old.” — – President Obama during the first presidential debate in 2012
Like with every other Obama promise, it was a lie for a critical group of Americans: our military veterans and their families:
One of the most touted benefits of President Obama’s health care overhaul law is the provision allows parents to keep their adult children on their health insurance until age 26.
However, Trace Gallagher reported on “The Kelly File” Monday, this benefit is not being extended to a significant group of Americans: members of the U.S. military.
TRICARE, the Department of Defense program that provides health coverage to active duty and retired military members and their families, only covers young adult dependents up until age 21, or age 23 if they are enrolled full-time in college.
TRICARE recipients can then purchase a plan for their young adult dependents, according to their website.
Air Force veteran Eddie Grooms said he was disappointed to learn he could not add his 21-year-old daughter to his insurance provided by the military, as he thought he had been promised under the health care overhaul.
“It’d be nice if they leveled with everybody and let them know so that people could make plans, because this is going to hit all, I mean it’s going to hit thousands of retirees over time,” Grooms said.
So maybe your kid can stay on your policy until he or she is 26. Unless you’re one of the heroes who defended American freedom. Then Obama screwed you but good.
Not that Obama ever liked our nation’s veterans. Apparently he figures that people who fought for America would be more inclined to fight him when he tries to impose his tyranny over America.
The thing is that I could go on. And probably on and on. Suffice it to say that absolutely every single thing Obama said about his health care hijack was a lie.
I’ve said it over and over again: Barack Obama is not merely a liar; he is a truly evil man. He is a man devoid of character, or honesty, or integrity, or virtue. He is nothing short of the Antichrist’s useful idiot.
The horror story is yet to come. Obama set up one of his promises thusly:
“First of all, nobody is talking about some government takeover of healthcare,” Obama told the crowd in Raleigh. “I’m tired of hearing that…. Under the reform I’ve proposed, if you like your doctor, you keep your doctor. If you like your healthcare plan, you keep your healthcare plan. These folks need to stop scaring everybody.”
Given that Obama lied about being able to keep your doctor, being that Obama lied about being able to keep your healthcare plan, you need to realize that “the folks who were scaring everybody” were the only ones who were telling the truth. Which means that YES, OBAMACARE IS A GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF HEALTHCARE. And things are going to get ugly in this “fundamentally transformed” people’s socialist republic.
If you’ve got any sense in your head at all, you are now listening to the people Obama demonized as “scaring everybody.” Because everything we said would happen is happening right in front of your fool eyes.
I have stated my view that Barack Hussein Obama is demon-possessed. When you get your health care bill and as you start watching your costs spiral as we encounter the nightmare scenario of an actuarial death spiral (and see here) as the young people ObamaCare needed to enroll refuse to do so while the sickest and least healthy Americans overload the system (and you pay their tab), tell me I’m wrong.
I predict that the actuarial death spiral is THE most likely outcome as young people refuse to pay double the premiums they would have had to pay (and even THEN refused to pay) for insurance they don’t feel they need in order to pay the costs for he older and sicker population. And rates will systematically skyrocket as a result. (I also predict that Democrats will demonize the insurance companies for their sin of trying to remain in business rather than going bankrupt trying to carry out Democrats’ insane delusional socialist fantasies).
I can’t resist one more. Allow me to end with a lie you can already see in the making:
Obama Administration Promises Health Care Site Will Be Fixed By End of November
By Kate Pickert @katepickertOct. 25, 2013
The Obama administration says the problem-plagued healthcare.gov website will be working properly by the end of November and that the government has appointed a new contractor to head up repairs for the troubled health insurance exchange.
“Each week, the experience will get better and better,” Jeff Zients, a management consultant and former administration budget official recently hired to oversee fixes to the website, told reporters on a conference call Friday. “We are confident that by the end of November, healthcare.gov will operate smoothly for the majority of users.”
If that deadline is met, it would come two months after the site was launched with major technical failures, prompting widespread criticism and giving ammunition to Republican opponents of President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement.
Oh, really, lying Obama administration???
Troubled HealthCare.gov unlikely to work fully by end of November
By Amy Goldstein, Juliet Eilperin and Lena H. Sun
Software problems with the federal online health insurance marketplace, especially in handling high volumes, are proving so stubborn that the system is unlikely to work fully by the end of the month as the White House has promised, according to an official with knowledge of the project.
The insurance exchange is balking when more than 20,000 to 30,000 people attempt to use it at the same time — about half its intended capacity, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose internal information. And CGI Federal, the main contractor that built the site, has succeeded in repairing only about six of every 10 of the defects it has addressed so far.
Government workers and technical contractors racing to repair the Web site have concluded, the official said, that the only way for large numbers of Americans to enroll in the health-care plans soon is by using other means so that the online system isn’t overburdened.
This inside view of the halting nature of HealthCare.gov repairs is emerging as the insurance industry is working behind the scenes on contingency plans, in case the site continues to have problems. And it calls into question the repeated assurances by the White House and other top officials that the insurance exchange will work smoothly for the vast majority of Americans by Nov. 30. Speaking in Dallas a week ago, President Obama said that the “Web site is already better than it was at the beginning of October, and by the end of this month, we anticipate that it is going to be working the way it is supposed to, all right?”
Just another lie from a serial liar. But we’ve already let him get away with so many thousand lies it’s beyond unreal. Let’s just chew our cuds like herd animals and let him lie American into oblivion.
