Forget the treats. It’s all tricks when it comes to Obamacare.
Democrat Representative Steny Hoyer admitted Tuesday that politicians always knew not everyone would get to keep their health insurance coverage. “We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage.”
He went on to add, “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough… [It] should have been caveated with ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”
By that definition of “wrong,” “accurate” and “precise enough,” it’s ok to preach that “the sky is always blue,” withholding the caveat “except when it isn’t” until after the tornado rips through.
It’s a lie.
It was a lie all along.
It was a lie way back on June 15, 2009 when President Obama said, “No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people. If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No will take it away, no matter what.”
And it was a lie every time that guarantee was repeated by pro-Obamacare politicians and the pro-Obamacare press. (It was still a lie when citizen supporters repeated it to themselves even if they were too stupid to recognize it as such.)
We were never intended to keep our healthcare coverage. We were always meant to succumb to Obamacare, as Democrat Representative Sander Levin inadvertently pointed out the other day.
Responding to questions concerning the millions of people receiving cancellation notices from their insurance companies, he explained they’re looking at it all wrong. Paraphrasing Florida Blue CEO Patrick Geraghty, Levin explained that the “so-called cancellation notices” are simply “help[ing] people transition to a new policy.”
Democrats can put lipstick on this pig all they want.
A lie is a lie is a lie. No matter how many times you call it something else.
