Obama bemoans those who bear ‘false witness’ against Obamacare as he bears ‘false witness’ himself
There he goes again. President Obama bears “false witness” as he complains about others bearing “false witness” against Obamacare.
A “scripted” online discussion about Obamacare conducted with a “friendly audience” of religious voters and pastors Wednesday, ended with Obama “bemoaning those who bear ‘false witness’ against his plans — and then making a claim of his own that’s been widely shown to be false”:
“There’s been a lot of misinformation,” Obama said, complaining about people who are “bearing false witness.”
He said the first thing he wanted to correct was the idea that the proposed overhaul would force some people into different health care plans. “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan,” he said, repeating one of his stock lines.
Unfortunately, that Obama “stock line” is not true.
We reported Fox News legal analyst, Peter J. Johnson, Jr., debunked Obama’s you can “keep your healthcare plan” promise earlier this week. Yesterday, McClatchy also reported Obama’s you can keep your healthcare plan promise is not true. McClatchy relied on the “nonpartisan” FactCheck.org:
That’s not true, however, according to FactCheck.org, an independent truth squad run by the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
These facts don’t bother Obama. He continues to make his now debunked promise.
We have seen such misrepresentation from Obama before. Presidential candidate Obama’s distortion of McCain’s “one hundred years” statement about the Iraq war is the most egregious example. Even as fact checker after fact checker found that Obama misrepresented what McCain said, Obama continued the distortions for weeks.
How long will Obama continue to bear false witness about Obamacare?
Obama is shameless, simply shameless.
