Obamacare’s Three Big Lies

Mounting fury over nationwide insurance cancellations does far more serious damage to Obamacare than does a dysfunctional website. Already, millions have received notices terminating insurance policies because new federal regulations demand a different menu of benefits. In Obamacare’s first year, many more people will lose their current plans than will sign up for insurance for the first time.

This situation undermines three key promises by the president. First, we’re likely to see more uninsured Americans, not fewer. Second, the pledge that “you can keep your current insurance if you like it” stands exposed as a grotesque lie. And third, sticker shock regarding vastly more expensive replacement policies contradicts oft-repeated claims that “typical” families would see premium reductions of $2,500 a year.

There’s only one response to such shameful deceptions: sweeping electoral rejection of Obamacare and all Democrats who supported it.

    This is an example of a man who has never managed a thing in his life. A person who has never led anyone. He will accept all the accolades, but will not acknowledge his errors. This is a bad law, period. Somehow someway it needs to be repealed.

      November 6. President apologizes and ACKNOWLEDGES his errors in public. He
      personally took the responsibility and said it was his job to get it fixed. In the last several
      days he has gone to TEXAS where there is Cruzian opposition to Obamacare – seems he
      has gone to the people who are fighting the plan to fight for it. The current plan is
      very similar to REPUBLICAN plans of the recent past….yet it is rejected. I believe if
      the teaparty wing of the republicans keeps up their illogical dissent they will force the
      government to eventually go to single payer to shut them up. There will be a backlash
      to their actions which they are not going to like…..

        Obama came to Texas for a fundraiser and to say thank you to a very small group of supporters. Taking responsibility would be making good on the promises, not admitting the obvious. The president disingenuous speech, has Lanny Davis written all over it. Spare us the logic argument. Common sense has been replaced by nonsense in this administration.

      • Mr. Derp  •  Nov 21, 2013 at 12:38 am

        Yeah right “took responsibility”. What does that even mean? He hasn’t been punished and he hasn’t made good on his promises, so it’s yet again more empty words from the empty chair of a president. He should be in jail for fraud!
        Why are you liberals so easily fooled by evil people like Obama? You must love being lied to or something. Sick.

    Let me be clear, those are the 3 big ones. Along with just a few more slightly less, big ones.

    If I even say one time, I wasn’t aware of that, at my work place(I’m not even in charge), well it doesn’t cut it. How does the Commander in Chief get away with it. Over and over again. That records got to be getting towards the end of its playability, even for the zombies.

    In 1969, we, The United States of America, landed men on the moon. The tools at hand were slide rules, rudimentary 8 bit computers, the most basic of numerically controlled machine tools (by today’s standards), and brand new materials invented for the trip.

    Today, we have almost instantaneous access to the world knowledge base of human kind. We have 128 bit processors tied together in a vast arrays, terabytes (that is more than the national debt, but not by much) of data storage, materials only dreamed about 45 years ago, advanced mathematical modeling and testing software running in N-dimensions, and the benefit of all of those intervening years of experience.

    We cannot successfully build a website. We cannot, or will not, contemplate, model, or otherwise think about the myriad social and economic impacts on our society of this apparently ill-conceived health care legislation.

    My hope and prayer is that if we are fortunate enough to re-engineer this health care reform, it is done with the same care as those early NASA engineers did before risking the lives of three of our best and brightest.

    One need only look to the Vangard launch of 1957 to understand that Obamacare is now sinking back into its own plume. But like NASA, we must not give up on making the planet better and brighter for all.

    Back to the drawing board.

      Re-engineer? The only correct response to this nightmare is to reverse it entirely and pull out whatever roots it has been able to start and then move on with the American people being able to use the best healthcare system any country has ever had: namely the one that was in place before “Obamacare” rose its ugly head and took its first breath.

        Let them eat cake?

    The latest misinformation is that the medical insurance plans that are being cancelled are “junk” plans. Medical insurance plans are the most regulated, at the state level, of any insurance product on the market. Here in California the state insurance commission imposes over 70 minimum requirements on medical insurance plans. Democrats, like congressmen John Garamendi, have been the state insurance commissioner for the last 25 years.

    So far, over 350,000 cancellation notices have been received by Californians from their insurance companies including my wife. My monthly payment will increase from $425 to $700 and the annual deductible will also increase by $1,000. I and my wilfe are retired and my wife is 62.

    I don’t need and will never use the extra services provided such as baby delivery and breast feeding training.

    Obama: Worse than Carter?

    • Alan Mebes  •  Nov 1, 2013 at 5:49 pm

      Carter was a dream in comparison. Obama rates in the top five of worse presidents all time, in front of maybe Harding and Andrew Johnson. Where do the rest of the readers rate him. Unfortunately he has another 3 years to drop in rank.

      • jguy  •  Nov 8, 2013 at 9:41 pm

        Carter…Hostage crisis…misery index with high unemployment and interest rates…gas
        rationing…
        Obama…End Iraq war….avoid Syrian and Lybian wars….Probable end to Afgan War..
        Bail out GM ….possible expanded healthcare.
        Yeah…Obamas worse than Carter….lol

  6. Alan Mebes  •  Nov 1, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    Remember Bush lied and Americans died (actually I was never able to find the lie. Every nation had the same intelligence and thought Hussein had WMDs. If Bush lied then every major leader in the world lied).
    Here we have proof “Obama lied and Insurance died”. Slogans resonate with the left.

    • jguy  •  Nov 8, 2013 at 9:28 pm

      It is the same thing…… The Bush lied mantra came after months of preparing for war….
      during this time it is likely that the Iraqi s moved what ever wmd..s they had…..the problem
      was time…. same thing with the Obama lied mantra…. Insurance Companies are canceling the policies………..Obama doesnt control Insurance companies just as Bush
      didnt control Hussein during the time of probable wmd movement. People believe Presidential words exist without relevance to time—obviously they do not.

    Classic socialism. Promise the masses whatever they desire, will be theirs once the new regime is in place. Stalin made it work for one decade, then he used fear and starvation, until the war refocused the country. After that it was a police state. Castro’s Cuba still is a police state and they produce very little. Their former sugar cane fields lie barren. Venezuela is off to the same end, with oil production heading lower each year. Just feed the people on hope, lies and fear. And then quietly and slowly point them at the opposition and tell them those people are their true enemies. Throw in some sports and a few festivals, and raid the hell out of the treasury. Who’s looking–everyone is asleep by then or have forgotten what it was once like. “Shhhhh, don’t say anything bad, someone could be listening.”

    Why is it that I can purchase home insurance or car insurance form a number of national companies, competing for my business, choose form a number of policies with diverse deductibles and prices and yet, there is no government program? Oh, maybe that’s why.

    • jguy  •  Nov 8, 2013 at 9:52 pm

      In many if not most states you must have car insurance to legally drive….
      In many if not all states you must have mortgage insurance to mortgage a house…..
      These are laws that have been passed by government agencies or legislatures for
      the protection of citizens and businesses in the US. They are in a manner of speaking
      government programs since they are enforced by different government structures. The
      same is what is being attempted in healthcare to the point of attempting to set up
      registries within and by the several states…..though it is not working in states where
      administrations block implementation through their desire to avert the law.
