About the only thing you can expect from a compulsive liar is more lies. The stimulus would boost the economy. Well, it boosted a few pocketbooks, but so far, years later, the economy has yet to respond. Fast and Furious was Bush’s fault. That’s right, it was just a continuation of operation wide receiver, which…was not the case. Behghazi was the result of a video floating on the internet for months but only enraged the Muslim world on September 11th. Now we have the truth on that. The IRS targeting scandal was the result of two hacks in Cincinnati. What do you know, not true either. The NSA scandal grows by the day. The Obama regime is reviewing-apparently, reviewing how to spin the obvious. But this isn’t a list of Obama regime lies, although what I just mentioned is pretty damning. This is a pattern of deception and lies, and now we have that with Obamacare.
If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it-period. How many times have we heard that line from Barack Obama since Obamacare was passed? Even before it was passed? There were warnings years ago that this wouldn’t be the case. Now we find out that the regime had this planned since at least 2010. How Obama didn’t know that millions would lose their health insurance when Obamacare was rolled out is almost impossible to comprehend. When faced with the facts he doubled down and repeated what we now know to be a lie.
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”
And as we found out from Kathleen tax cheat Sebilius today, the only thing that had to change on a so-called grandfathered policy is for the rates to rise five dollars. Grandfathered meant that if you had a plan you liked you could keep it-just like Obama said. What he didn’t say was that if anything-and I mean anything changed with that plan, the grandfather clause no longer applied. The regime’s own projections saw this-as planned.
Lucky for Obama he’s getting cover from the media-although that front is weakening some. Still, the cover are the talking points that the regime, the Democrats in congress, and finally the media are all parroting. So precise are these talking points that I can cover them and apply all of them to the aforementioned leftists. It goes something like this. You’re getting a much better plan. Says who? Your brother will be paying for maternity care and your sister will be covering Rogaine treatments. David Wolfe will be covering substance abuse care. This is the better plan.
How about the inferior plans that are now being canceled? We go back to the original muse, you’re getting a better plan. That Obama hubris oozes through this. Americans are just too stupid to figure things out on their own and the government must step in. The perpetuated Obama lie doesn’t even factor in. The spin becomes you’re better off. Fortunately, my employer is providing acceptable insurance (for now), but I did check out California Care on the off chance that maybe I would one day have to purchase insurance on the exchanges. Talk about sticker shock. I understand my employer subsidizes my plan but the exchange alternative would be an 800 percent increase in monthly premium. You saw that right. Not that I would ever submit my personal information to a website that has been described as an identity thief’s dream. Some have though, and there are more on the way-presumably.
For those that have been canceled, it’s hard to imagine how they will be able to afford the kinds of plans on those exchanges. What happens to them? Fines? Jail? Or worse? Obama lies and people die because they can’t afford to have insurance at all anymore, and they aren’t allowed to have the plan they used to have. If you could design a disaster that is so damaging, so destructive that the only intent would be to destroy at the least an entire industry and at worse an entire country, it might look alot like Obamacare. And that’s no lie.
