Obama Adminstration Finally Admits it Lied That Everyone Would be Able to Keep Their Health Plan

Finally, after years of stonewalling, Carney admitted that not everyone would be able to keep their health-care plans despite the faux Obama assurances that they would. To bad this deception didn't reach the public consciousness during the November 2012 Presidential election or in October 2013 during the Obama induced government shutdown fiasco.  Click on the link below to read the Washington Times article.


"The White House acknowledged for the first time Monday that President Obama's oft-repeated promise that everyone can keep their health-insurance plans under Obamcare just isn’t true.

For more than three years as he worked to pass the Affordable Care Act and encouraged people to enroll, Mr. Obama routinely pledged that people could keep their doctor and their plan if they liked them.

“If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period,” Mr. Obama said in June 2009. Later that year he proclaimed, “Nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have.”"

Unbelievably, even NBC News, which tends to blindly endorse Obama, reported: "Obama admin. knew millions could not keep their health insurance".

"President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years."

While on the topic of purposeful misleading rhetoric to blatantly solicit votes, the Washington Times also re-published Obama's infamous "deficits are a failure of leadership" speech.

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Over the past five years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion. That is ‘trillion’ with a ‘T.’ That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next five years, between now and 2011, the president’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion."

The national debt, in October 2013, just passed 17 Trillion dollars.  Since being elected Obama changed his tune and now refuses to address deficit spending and even dissed various proposals to reduce deficit spending. By the time Obama leaves office in 2016, the National debt is projected to exceed 20 Trillion dollars.

Seems that the American public has been bamboozled by Obama's false assertions of "transparency" and being above petty partisan "above politics".
