Apparently a lie isn’t a lie when Barack Obama decides that whatever he said previously no longer is what he said.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed. So we wrote into the Affordable Care Act, you’re grandfathered in on that plan. But if the insurance company changes it, then what we’re saying is they’ve got to change it to a higher standard. They’ve got to make it better, they’ve got to improve the quality of the plan they are selling. That’s part of the promise that we made too. That’s why we went out of our way to make sure that the law allowed for grandfathering.
If we had allowed these old plans to be downgraded, or sold to new enrollees once the law had already passed, then we would have broken an even more important promise — making sure Americans gain access to health care that doesn’t leave them one illness away from financial ruin. The bottom line is that we are making the insurance market better for everybody and that’s the right thing to do.
To quote Congressman Joe Wilson… You lie… That’s not what you said at all. This is what you said, over and over and over again.
One of the most frustrating things to hear or witness is one of the Obama faithful, presented with the utterly undeniable truth that Barack Obama knowingly and willfully with a full forethought of malice lied to them. Not only are they ok with his lying to them, they adamantly deny that he lied and make the most outrageous excuses and rationalization regarding those lies.
