“If you like your doctor, you can keep him.” – President Barack Obama.
This was an obvious, blatant political lie. Not only did it turn out to be untrue in retrospect, but when the President made this statement, he knew without any shadow of a reasonable doubt that he was deliberately lying to the American People to manipulate them towards favoring the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2009. He knew the following specifics as early as July 2010.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 Million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter…
He knew this specifically and continued brazenly making the following claim as late as 2012
Yet President Obama, who had promised in 2009, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
“This says that when they made the promise, they knew half the people in this market outright couldn’t keep what they had and then they wrote the rules so that others couldn’t make it either,” said Robert Laszewski,…
President Barack Obama is, has been and will continue to be an inveterate liar. This is direct proof that this man is an inveterate liar. Ted Cruz was absolutely correct. We have no business continuing to fund any aspect of this blatantly harmful and dishonest ObamaCare law.
The House of Representatives is attempting to desperately regain a measure of respectability by sponsoring the “Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013.” It would let you keep your plan for another year.*
This, I believe is precisely the wrong tack to take. We need to implement ObamaCare precisely as it was written. While so doing, we remind America that it is !OBAMA!Care. Let’s run a constant dialogue of this is what you were told; this is what you were stuck with. That is until they can no longer stand being stuck with it. Let the popular outrage between what was promised and what was delivered be the wedge that finally allows us to reverse the unending expansion of the central state.
They knowingly lied to us about ObamaCare and insurance coverage. If you like your doctor, send that individual a greeting card. You won’t see them in a professional capacity under ObamaCare. We as Conservatives everywhere now owe it to America to make every Democrat running for office answer to why the Democrats knowingly lied.
