Lying About the Lie

www.ConservativeTruth.org

November 18, 2013


Barack Obama has joined a very exclusive club which has only three members. The members are all sitting US presidents who deliberately and knowingly lied to the American people on national television.

On August 9, 1972 Richard Nixon said, "No one on the White House staff, no one in this administration presently employed, was involved in this very bizarre incident."

On January 26, 1998 Bill Clinton said, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."

On June 15, 2009, and on 35 later occasions Obama said, "If you like your health care plan you be able to keep it – PERIOD. If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor – PERIOD.”

Everyone knows Obama lied when he made these promises. And incontrovertible evidence has been uncovered in the last several weeks that Obama knew when he made these promises that they were false. Government agencies had informed the White House that as many as 10 million American citizens would lose their healthcare insurance as a direct result of the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare.

I'm not upset about the lies. After hearing them over and over for the last four years I've gotten used to the lies. What incenses me is that Obama is attempting to rewrite history. He now claims, in typical lawyer style, that he didn't really say what he said. He circumvents the truth by claiming that it is we who misunderstood his statement by explaining that the caveat to his promise amounts to your ability to keep your plan or doctor only if your insurance company made no changes to your existing plan. The problem is that no one can find any record of him ever saying this.

Obama is lying about the lie.

While layers continually add to his original lie, he attempts to shroud the issue by attempting to take the focus off Obamcare itself by pointing to the botched website. The website is just the tip of the dangerous iceberg that is Obamacare. Healthcare.gov is to Obamacare what the fake video was to Benghazi. Blaming the planned murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans on an inane YouTube video was a smokescreen, an idea hatched for the sole purpose of diverting attention away from the grim reality that the administration did nothing during an eight hour period in which four Americans were tortured and murdered. It didn't work with Benghazi, and it's not working with Obamacare. America sees through his attempts to divert attention.

Since diversion hasn’t worked, he's had to resort to Plan B - lying about the lie. He can't take back the lies - they've been played over and over again on national television. So today he lies about his lies: "I told you all along that you could lose your insurance." Obviously he never said that. If he had, Obamacare – which passed with the slimmest of margins - would never have become law.

Over five million Americans have already gotten notices from their insurance companies that their plans have been or will be canceled. That number is expected to grow to over 10 million. So much for the lie that you can keep your insurance plan and the doctor you like.

Obama promised that the average American family would save $2,500 each year on healthcare insurance costs. As of this writing the average annual INCREASE in health insurance costs is $2,300 per family.

Once that information began rolling out, Obama began to lie about that lie. Now he says that the insurance policies that most Americans had were "junk" to begin with. He tries to justify the higher cost by saying they were getting better policies.

I wish someone could explain to me why a four-year-old boy should be required to have insurance that covers prostate cancer screenings. Or why a 70-year-old postmenopausal woman should be required to have maternity coverage. Or why law-abiding citizens should have to pay for drug-abuse treatment. Or why Christians who don't believe in abortion should be forced to pay extra for policies that cover abortions.

Perhaps the better question is why everyone who pays for health insurance from this point forward will have to subsidize the cost of such unneeded coverage for people who pay nothing for their healthcare.

The entire premise of Obamacare is a lie. Obama told us that everyone who needs health insurance would have it, knowing that that was a lie. Then he told us that more people would have health insurance. Today that has also proven to be a lie. Millions of Americans are losing their health insurance and very few are getting new policies.

On the first day that Obamacare became available six people were enrolled. The next day another 260 people were enrolled. For weeks the administration refused to tell us how many people enrolled because the truth was too embarrassing. Recently they finally admitted that only 100,000 have “enrolled.” But even that is a lie. The fact is that most of these only “selected a plan.” Selecting a plan is just a first step. They still have to be accepted by the insurance company (many won’t be) and they still have to pay (many won’t be able to afford the high premiums).

Hypothetically speaking, let's say that 100,000 have actually gotten polices. That is only 1.47% of the minimum of 7 million who must enroll for Obamacare to be financially viable.

Their plan was to force 7 million healthy Americans to sign up for expensive policies that would subsidize the free healthcare insurance that they're giving to millions of others. This won't come to fruition since healthy Americans are refusing to sign up for the expensive plans. The great majority of people who have signed up for Obamacare have chosen the free Medicaid policies, for which taxpayers foot the entire cost.

I will close with Obama’s own words, repeated 36 times – the same number of times he spoke these words publicly:
