I just have to weigh in on this silliness blanketing the airwaves concerning President Obama and whether or not he knew Americans would lose their private health insurance plan or doctor. Here is a link to an example of the rhetoric. Once again, it is the American people stuck in the middle of political maneuvering for the 2014/2016 elections rather than a debate of substance.
Those on the right are debating whether he simply wasn’t told what was in the bill or did he flat out lie. Those on the left are mincing words to say he was technically correct in that Obamacare doesn’t force private health insurance providers to cancel policies, rather that they are choosing to of their own volition.
Now the answer is easy. Yes, he’s lying. He has long been a proponent of single-payer and government run healthcare. If you’re not convinced, simply watch this video loaded with him saying it in his own words.
President Obama isn’t the bumbling idiot that some on the right would like to paint him as who just didn’t know what was in the bill. Nor is he the Delegator-in-Chief others propose who tells his minions to simply get it done without telling him details so that he has plausible deniability always at hand. When he was indoctrinated in his youth and became a proponent of big government, he learned then that it would be a stepped process to get to single payer.
It’s just the standard M.O. of liberals when attempting to impose another government program on the American people. They can’t spell out the true details or it won’t sell. We have to “pass it to find out what’s in it”.
No way could Obama have been up front to say that White House estimates of 14 million (some say 19 million,or is it 93 million?)people losing their private health insurance plan due to the requirements of Obamacare. The talking heads all have their talking points to downplay it as miniscule, maybe 5% of the population, but 14 million people is a very loud voice. If only they would have paid attention ahead of time.
So now we’ll hear many say that they simply can’t say for sure that Obama knew ahead of time. Really? Only if you’re a flat-earther. I’ve never made a trip around the planet to verify that it is a globe but I feel pretty comfortable in saying that it really is.
